The pantry is the nucleus of your kitchen. All members of the household use it, which means it can easily get outdated and disorganized! For a quick fix, start by taking everything out and give the shelves a good dusting.

First-check canned goods, condiments, and spices for expiration dates.

Regarding the remaining items, ask yourself…

  1. Do you still use them?
  2. Are they still in working order and relevant?
  3. Do they need to be stored in the pantry or does it make sense to keep them elsewhere?

Once you have collected the items you want to keep…

  1. Group like items together
  2. Store items you use most often on the shelves at eye level
  3. Store items you use least often on high or very low shelves

Now it’s time to put everything back! We love these shelf risers for canned goods and this lazy susan for spice storage!
