Pantry Organization 101
An organized pantry will save you time and money.
You’ll avoid waste and reduce trips to the grocery store.
To give your pantry an organization overhaul, schedule a few hours of dedicated time. Here’s how to do it.
Remove everything from the pantry.
Check each item’s expiration date.
Then organize cans and containers by their “food family” — baking goods, grains, canned goods, etc.
Use plastic containers or baskets to keep all the items in each family together.
Store frequently used items at eye level and rarely used items on the top or bottom shelf.
