As an organizing fanatic, I love re-arranging and decluttering my home to help improve the efficiency of space.
I'm going to show you how I organized my kitchen pantry.
Step 1: Materials
You can raid the house for spare containers and jars, or hit the department store for some cheap handy ideas.
I have done both. Having plenty of different shapes and sizes can help, I have chosen some rectangular containers, some with handles, easy screw top jars and pantry stands.
Step 2: Clean Out!
Step 3: Categories.
Put your food/drinks into categories.
1. Lay out all your food/drink on the floor (clean floor) so you can see what you have.
2. Create your piles.
Cereals and breakfast.
Milk, cordial, juice.
Baking, cake mixes, flour, sugar.
Biscuits, sweets, chips, snacks.
Sauces, spices, recipe aids, oil, gravy.
and so on...
Step 4: Now, the Organization!
So, place food/drinks in chosen sized containers, in preferred areas.
Some final tips:
Use handled containers for small items, like sweets or recipe bases.
Screw top jars make good storage for salt, pepper and sugar.
Now try and follow your new pantry layout. It makes meal times more efficient and getting ready for work and school a little less harder.
