Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

If your pantry is beginning to get out of control and you are unable to store all of your items properly, you are in the right spot. We will guide you through the best tips and methods to make the most out of your space while fitting all of your kitchen supplies. 

Consider Every Open Space as an Option for Storage & Get Creative 

Does your kitchen space have unused cabinets beneath or above the sink? These can be great areas to store extra supplies that do not necessarily belong in your pantry but still need a place to go. Many people do not fully utilize all of the cabinets and drawers in their kitchen. If you have space below your countertops, we suggest storing larger items such as pots and pans. Smaller items can be placed in the cabinets that are above the countertop.  

Install a Pull-Out Pantry 

If you’re looking for a cost-effective and space-saving way to add storage in your kitchen, then look no further than pull-out cabinets. These handy drawers slide open easily so that all sorts of cooking supplies or spices can be stored right at hand when needed without taking up any valuable countertop space. They come in different sizes and can fit perfectly in your kitchen. With the right size, they will never block anyone from getting through doors nor interfere too much during meal preparation time either, making them an excellent addition to your kitchen.

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

If you have many unused food containers that are taking up space in your pantry, try consolidating them to store even more of your supplies. Place each container into one another from largest to smallest. Then stack the lids and place them inside of the containers or to the side of them. This will create room for your other kitchen supplies. 

Group Your Pantry Items 

Grouping your kitchen items is a great way to keep your pantry organized. Searching for supplies will be easier and you will be able to find what you are looking for much quicker. Listed below are some categories you can use to organize your pantry space:

  • Cans
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Bread/Rolls
  • Breakfast Food
  • Snacks
  • Spices
  • Bottles/Beverages

Stack When You Can 

Stack the items in your pantry to create more room. If you are unable to stack items, try taking everything out to see which items are small enough to stack on top of one another. In addition, while you take out these items for stacking, feel free to remove and get rid of any items that are unused or expired. By placing smaller supplies on top of larger ones, you will be able to fit even more kitchen supplies than you may have expected.
