When it comes to organizing pantries everyone has their own way doing them but there are a few key essentials to make organizing them a bit easier. When I organize my pantry or ever add items to it I started to realize that there were a few items that I would rebuy. Knowing what pantry essentials I needed to organize my pantry has really made it easier for Chris and I.
Below you will see what our current pantry looks like. As you can see there are still few spots that need essentials but knowing which ones I need makes it easier for me to grab them when I’m out and about. The best 4 essentials for panty organization are ones that are going to have you covered with it comes time to organizing it.
The first essential you will need for your pantry is bins or baskets. Having baskets and bins is a great place to start this is where you can store a lot of your boxed items, extras, coffee and more. I love these wicker baskets personally since you can’t see through them and hide random items. In our baskets I store all the chips in one, granola bars and I even have one bin for the puppies and their treats.
Containers in a variety of sizes is the second essential to have. If you are wondering what items to put inside these containers start with bulk items. Bulk items like pancake mix, rice, pasta are perfect for storing. I like to use smaller containers for granola, almonds and candy. Quick tip: on the bottom of the lid you can tape any cooking instructions. It’s the worst when you realize that you through away the instructions!
Once you have storage containers the next essential I suggest is chalkboard labels. Labeling containers makes it easier to locate what you need from the pantry. I personally like the chalkboard ones more since they are also easier to clean and reuse. I have linked a few different types for you above. Some also come with the chalkboard marker as well.
If you are a household that like to have can drinks and eats or even jared items these metal racks are a top essential. In our house we like to have can drinks along with canned and jarred goods so this is exactly what we needed. The ones we have are in white but they also come in other colors as well as sizes.
