Grocery Stores are very organized. They have to be, in order for their customers to be able to find what they need (and maybe something’s that they don’t need). Use their model to create order in your little grocery store within your home – YOUR PANTRY!
Categorize food into groups, such as baking goods, paper products, breakfast items, pastas and rice, breads, and canned goods.
Place frequently used products at eye level. Make it as easy as possible to find what you need most often.
Place lighter weight items, like paper towels, chips and crackers on the top shelves, so there is no danger of injury if something should fall.
The tallest products in the back, so you can see as much as possible. If you can’t see it, it’s the same as not having it.
Further organize categories of items for better efficiency. Canned goods can be sorted by soups, fruit and tomato products.
Contain bagged items like spice packets, pastas, rice and beans inside bins or empty into jars, so things don’t spill and create a mess and/or more chaos.
Organizing a pantry like a mini grocery store can save you time, energy and money. Try it!
