5 Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Are you looking for pantry organization ideas? Or, are you looking to declutter your kitchen this year? If you only have a little amount of storage in your kitchen, for example, you may need to get creative. The following are some pantry organization solutions from Available Self Storage. Learn how to make the most of what you’ve got!

Tips for Small Pantry Organization

Whether you want to completely remodel your pantry or make better use of the small pantry space you already have, there are plenty of ways you can organize this essential part of your kitchen. 

Consider Every Open Space as a Storage Alternative

Consider the open areas in your home if you have limited cabinet and pantry space. Do you have wall space above your sink that might be used to store open shelves? Consider adding a kitchen island or extending one that is already in place. Look outside the kitchen for inspiration as well; a corridor between your kitchen and living room may contain a bigger cabinet or storage system while still providing easy access to your belongings.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry in Your Kitchen

A pull-out pantry is a useful kitchen storage solution in the space-saving design. You can see each item as you open the door, and you may store everything out of sight at the end of preparing your meal for a clutter-free kitchen.

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

If you have a lot of Tupperware and Pyrex containers, you’ll need to come up with an organization strategy for your food storage containers. The bottoms should be stacked on top of one another while the lids are kept vertically. Keep them at eye level to keep yourself safe.

Group Your Pantry Items 

The first rule of organization is generally grouping like items together. Once you have figured out the layout of your pantry, consider these categories for easy-to-find storage: 

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

Stack When You Can 

You’ve probably got just a few shelves in your first pantry location. Consider which things, such as cans and boxes, may be stacked on top of each other long-term. This will assist you to make rapid space quickly by clearing up space on the ground.
