Do you need to organize your pantry? If you’re anything like me, your pantry is overflowing with food that has been in there for who knows how long. Every time I opened my pantry I felt overwhelmed and it took me forever to find what I was looking for. My inner OCD was going crazy!
I had been wanting to organize it forever, but as all you moms know, “‘aint nobody got time for that!”. Well I decided to MAKE time, so I headed to the Dollar Store. I bought 8 bins that I labelled so I know exactly what types of foods are in each bin. It makes it so much easier to just walk over to my pantry and pull out a bin and see exactly what I need. I’m so happy with how it turned out!
This was my Pantry Before…
Such a mess!
and this is what my pantry looks like now…
The labelled bins make it super easy to find what I need. My kids have been loving it too because they know exactly where all their snacks are. They can easily grab a snack on their own if I’m busy with the baby… or laundry… or cleaning… or the million other things that need to get done around here.
So how do you keep it organized once you have put all that work into it? The key to keeping it organized is to always, always, always put stuff back where you got it from. I know that is easier said than done if you have kids who use the kitchen. My kids are just beginning to help me cook and so far they have been doing great with helping keep it organized.
Another way to organize your pantry is to put items like rice, pasta, sugars and other baking goods into pretty jars like these ones I got from Ikea. It not only looks great, but it helps to see how much is left, so you know at a glance when you are running low on any ingredients.
I hope that this has inspired you to organize your pantry too!
