Staying on top of pantry storage just makes sense. Getting and staying organised with your food storage means less wastage, easier restocking, and using a greater variety of food items in your cooking. Here are some clever pantry storage tips that will improve the look and feel of one of the most important spaces in your home.
Use stackable food containers
Get your dry ingredients into some sexy stackable clear containers such as the Kitchen Pro Denny range. Using an airtight container will lengthen the life of your dry goods and being able to see what’s inside makes for easier handling and restocking.
Organise spices on a turntable
Do you have a collection of spices and condiments that get pushed to the back of the pantry shelf and never see the light of day? Organise them by using this turntable by Madesmart and join the revolution! Spin to see all the delicious options your pantry has to offer. Read more about pantry storage essentials for every job.
Make use of available space
Make the most of your limited space. Keep dried herbs and spices on magnetic spice cans you can attach to the back of your pantry door. The see through lids allow you to find what you need at a glance. Well-stored spices will last up to a year, so use airtight vessels and keep them in a cool, dark place.
Use tiered shelf organisers in your cupboard to create extra space without lifting a finger. Going vertical is a smart way to organise tins, bottles, and smaller items. Cupboards, shelves, and drawers of any size can certainly be optimised with different pantry storage options.
Keep a pantry list
Keep a shopping list on the back of your pantry door and add items as you run out. This way, you’ll never be without essential ingredients again. Another great organisational tip is to keep a list of items that are close to their expiration date so you can plan to use them before they go off, and thereby reduce unnecessary food waste.
