Pantries are one area of the home that tends to get cluttered and disorganized. It’s easy to forget about the cans of food and various spices that have been accumulated over the years. This is one instance where the “out of sight, out of mind” saying becomes relevant. If you can’t see all the different things in your pantry, how are you supposed to know they’re there? Additionally, it can be hard to find what you need when you need it amongst all the clutter. Here we’ll take a look at some storage solutions that will de-clutter the pantry in your Henderson or Las Vegas, Nevada, home today.
One necessary feature to incorporate in your pantry storage is a place for spices. From rotating racks to stacked shelving, there are many different designs for spice storage racks. For further customization and uniformity, you can store your spices in glass containers and have some label maker fun.
No More Boxes
Get rid of cardboard boxes and store your food (chips, crackers, cookies, dry baking ingredients, etc.) in clear, airtight containers. This will keep the food fresher for longer and is more aesthetically pleasing. You’ll have a pantry that doesn’t only feel organized, but also looks organized.
Whether you choose to use a series of baskets or install shelves with separate cubbies, dividers go a long way in pantry organization. Dividers allow for easy separation among groups of food. Having one designated area for snacks, one for non-perishable canned items, and another for baking ingredients will help keep track of what you have in your pantry at all times.
Going back to label maker fun, don’t put away your label maker after the spices are done. You can use it for your whole pantry. Labeling all your items that are no longer in boxes, or applying labels on the baskets you store snacks in will help you locate what you need quickly.
Although organizing your pantry can seem like a daunting task, it’s well worth your time. Having a clean, organized, and accessible pantry area will make your kitchen experience much more enjoyable.
