    How to Optimize Pantry Shelving


    cooking will be much easier when you optimize your pantry shelving to make it easier to store and find your kitchen essentials

    The fist step in optimizing your pantry shelving is to take a look at what is there. Do you have a lot of spices,canned goods, bottles, boxes, or bags? Do you store kitchen utensils on your pantry shelves

    Shelf Assignments

    Assign a home for each different type of item. Have one shelf for cereals, one for canned foods, one for spices and another for prepared boxed meals such as macaroni and cheese. If you need to, you can split a shelf between for different foods. Be sure to keep the multiples of each food together so you can see at a glance how much of something you have. Store taller items on the back of the shelves. This makes them easier to see, thus easier to find.


    Reduce Dead Space

    Look inside your cabinet, and think through how you want to arrange everything. Containerize your groupings to keep them together and more easily accessible when you put them back into the pantry, and put any loose food into airtight containers to keep it fresh and easier to grab and go. Using stackable containers helps keep your pantry neat and your food easy to see and access.

    Useful and Attractive Canisters

    Find canisters or other holders for noodles, flour, sugar, rice, popcorn, or other foods that come in flimsy plastic or paper bags.









     Label
    Once you've decided where everything should go, keep it there by labeling the container or spot properly. Changing a container's contents? No problem. Change its label, too
