7 Tips for Organizing Your Pantry Into “Command Central”

Saturday, July 27, 2013
Organizing your pantry takes kitchen organization to a whole new level and allows you to get the most out of every inch by letting you see and access everything you need easily.

So whether it’s storing macaroni or marzipan – here are some things to think about when you’re organizing the pantry into “command central”.

organizing pantry1) When it comes to shelf depth in a pantry – less really can be more. It’s good to have a variety of shelving depths. Shallow shelves are great for small items like soup and mac n’ cheese. Deep shelves are great for larger items like serving bowls and paper towel.

2) Deep shelves or pullout drawers are great for storing serving pieces, platters and large appliances and can go a long way toward kitchen organization. Just be sure to design pullout drawers with varying amounts of space in between in order to accommodate different size items. Your shelving should be adjustable so you can determine what works as you organize this space with your own foodstuffs.

3) Pullout baskets are great for potatoes, onions and such.

4) The wall is a good spot for a mop and broom holder.

5) Hooks are helpful – for reusable grocery bags, aprons, etc.

6) Design the space so items like bottled water and soda can be slid on the floor.

7) If your pantry becomes the home for the recycle center, make sure it’s organized and easy to use. Do this by deciding on how much space is needed for the containers and where they will go. Any sort of pullout can really make this task, and organizing your pantry in general, easier.
