TOP 5 PANTRY TIPS
TOP 5 TIPS TO ORGANISING YOUR PANTRY!
1.TAKE EVERYTHING OUT
Take everything out, it’s much easier to work with a blank canvas. Make sure your countertop or kitchen table is empty so you can sort as you go and see everything clearly. Once your pantry is emptied give your shelves a good clean. Tops, bottoms, sides etc.
Check expiry dates as you go and throw out anything that is out of date out. Add items to your shopping list as you cull so you don't later find yourself caught without the essentials.
2.SORT INTO CATEGORIES
Now that you can see everything, group what you have into categories. Put your baking goods together, cereals together, cans and jars together.
3.DECANT INTO CLEAR CONTAINERS
To make the most of your pantry space and to keep food fresh for longer, use clear containers to store all your dried food items.
Pick containers that stack well and are large enough so you don't end up with half bags of food that won't fit in.
4.USE BASKETS OR CONTAINERS TO SORT
For items that don't need sealable containers, use baskets, tubs or stands to maximize space and visibility in your pantry.
Group your items into their categories, eg. Canned goods together, condiments, sauces, packet mixes, snacks etc.
When you label your pantry, you’re holding everyone accountable to put things back where they belong because were accustomed to do this. People are likely to listen when they are told to do something unless you are my children HA!
Labelling is the absolute game changer…
