Kitchen pantry’s can get pretty cluttered if you don’t stay on top of your organization game. Although a little bit of clutter may not seem like the worst thing in the world, spending money on groceries you already have is not the best feeling either! This is why organization and de-cluttering is so important in general. Beyond saving money, an organized pantry will help you better use your space, inspire you to cook, keep pantry bugs away, keep you updated on what you’re running low on, and will make cleaning the pantry feel like less of a chore! That all being said – there are multiple ways you could go about organizing your pantry. And no, your pantry does not have to be huge to be able to organize and de-clutter. This post goes for all sized pantry’s! I’ve listed below the products I use to organize my own pantry.

Before you start, clean out your entire pantry and then clean the pantry. Starting on a clean slate will make this process much more enjoyable!

Why shuffle through cardboard boxes if you could purchase clear containers? Not only will you be able to see everything you have, but you’ll know what you’re running low on, you’ll keep bugs away, and your pantry will be so aesthetically pleasing! If you’re eco-friendly, glass is the sustainable option. I would recommend putting cereals, cookies, pastas, oats, nuts, and chips in the glass or plastic containers.
