Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Organizing your kitchen can help you live a healthier lifestyle. With too many items crowding out the cupboards and putting pressure on storage space, finding room for everything becomes difficult–but not anymore! We’ve got some tips that will make all those cramped spaces feel like they’re yours alone as well-equipped with cooking utensils while still fitting into them easily. 

Consider Every Open Space as an Option for Storage & Get Creative 

If you have the room under or above your sink, use it! This is an ideal place for storing extra supplies that don’t belong in the pantry but still need somewhere safe. Most people never fully utilize all their kitchen cabinets and drawers – make sure to explore every last inch of these spaces if possible because there might be something great hiding within them. If not quite enough space remains on top after everything has been stored safely inside then consider putting larger items such as pots/pans below countertops; smaller ones can go into upper cupboards.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry 

Cooking has never been easier with these pull-out cabinets that slide open easily and give you space-saving storage for all sorts of items right at hand without taking up valuable countertop surface area. These come in different sizes so they won’t get in anyone’s way when opening doors too! It is an excellent addition to any kitchen whether it be solo living or living with a family. You will have a safe place to store your kitchen supplies during meal preps and this item will improve your overall efficiency in the kitchen.

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

What are you waiting for? If your kitchen is cluttered with food containers, use one large generic container to store it all! Put each lid or partial jar inside its own smaller vessel before stacking them together and get rid of the hassle.

Group Your Pantry Items 

Grouping your kitchen items will make your life easier in the kitchen. It will be easier to find specific items and you can place new ones in without having to worry about where they will be later. Listed below are categories you can use to organize your small pantry space:

  • Cans
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Bread/Rolls
  • Breakfast Food
  • Snacks
  • Spices
  • Bottles/Beverages

Stack When You Can 

To keep your pantry organized, it’s important to know the difference between stacking and unstacking. When storing items like spices or coffee beans (to name a few), put smaller ones on top so you can fit more than expected; then stack groups of kitchen supplies by category for quick access in case any are needed later while keeping space clear at all times with unused/expired stocked removed during this process too.
