LET’S DROP SOME POUNDS
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Utilizing every inch of the pantry helps you get the most out of your space. Add additional storage by utilizing doors and the sides. Even narrow walls can be used to store packets, plastic bags, aprons, etc. Products like under shelf baskets or an expandable shelf organizer are great solutions for gaining valuable real estate.
WHAT’S FOR DINNER?
Can’t find what you are looking for? The easier it is to find items in your pantry, the smoother meals go. Figure out what organizational system will work best for your family’s needs. Organizing pantries by meals, categories or zones can create a more functional space. What makes sense to your family is what will be the easiest to maintain.
I KNOW IT’S ON SALE, BUT …
Your pantry is about to explode because there is more food in it than there is space for. Meal planning and shopping intentionally can minimize this scenario. Make meal planning a family affair. Plan meals around what you already have in the pantry. Only buy what you need to complete the meal. Avoid the temptation to buy items just because they are on sale. Stick to your list and your pantry will thank you!
