It’s not uncommon to have a pantry full of opened miscellaneous foods with no organization whatsoever. In a short amount of time and with a few organizing products you can transform your pantry.
Remove everything from your pantry so you can see what you have and start sorting. Separate items into the following four categories:
• Items you use every day
• Items you use less frequently
• Unopened items that can be donated to a food pantry
• Expired items to trash
Now that your pantry is completely empty, take this opportunity to thoroughly clean it. If you need to purchase any organizing products this is the time to do it.
Items you may want to consider
Refilling your pantry in organized zones is the best way to ensure you don’t have to do another pantry overhaul in a couple of months. Be sure to keep only what you use.
Label the different sections of the pantry so the whole family knows where everything goes.
Stash a stepstool in the pantry, if you have room, or nearby to make reaching high shelves easy.
Moving forward shop small. Don’t overload on bulk stuff. Only buy what you need.
