5 Steps to a More Organized Pantry
Step one in organizing your pantry is to pull everything out and place it all on the countertops or the kitchen table for sorting. This makes a big mess, but it is truly necessary to get organized.
Step two is to toss everything that is expired. You don’t want to keep around anything that isn’t useful anymore.
Step three is to place like with like (on the table or counter for now, you will move it all into the pantry shortly). Put all the mac and cheese together, all the soups, the snacks, the pasta, etc. Another option is to put everything needed to make a meal together: taco shells, refried beans, salsa, taco seasoning, corn, etc and spaghetti, sauce, garlic bread, etc.
Step four is to make use of baskets or other containers for corralling things like spices or packets of seasoning, etc. so they don’t spread all over the cupboard.
Step five is to stock your cupboard. You should put the things you use most on the easiest to reach shelves and the least-used items higher.
