Ideas on How to Organize a Pantry and Create a great space!
Having a pantry big or small is a wonderful feature to have in a home. Even if your space is small you can turn a cabinet or nearby shelf into the designated pantry area to keep your space organized. Having kitchen staples organized saves me time and energy when I’m cooking dinner or baking up some treats with my children. I’m going to share some DIY tips and ideas that have worked for me with you so you can make and keep your Pantry Organized.
We have a large Pantry next to our kitchen and breakfast room and as you can imagine, it accumulates containers, food, holiday decor…it can get cluttered if we do not regularly keep it orderly and tidy in there, especially after a trip to the bulk food stores.
The key is to ‘Live with Less’ stuff!
