6 Pantry Organization Gadgets that You Will Actually Use



Take a peek inside your pantry. Go ahead, I’ll wait… If your pantry is anything like most pantries, you may be looking at mass chaos sitting on those shelves. If your pantry door is kept closed because it’s not suitable for anyone’s eyes but yours, it may be time to start organizing that space. The good news? It can be simple to get it done and you will have your kids packing their own lunch in no time flat. Here are a few suggestions and tips for pantry organization gadgets that will help you get that jump-start to organizing your pantry.

6 Pantry Organization Gadgets that You Will Actually Use

These 6 pantry organization gadgets are ones you will actually use to bring order to your pantry once and for all! These pantry organization ideas are perfect for any space.

Do Away with the Packaging

 Who says that your food items have to be stored in the boxes or packaging that they came in?  Instead, check out these Clear Storage Container Sets for your pantry space.  Not only do they come in different sizes, they seal tight to keep the air out and are clear so it’s easy to see what is in them.  You can use them to store noodles, cereals,  coffee…anything! 

Organize your Cans

Cans can take up a ton of space.  If you find yourself digging and digging to look through cans to see what you have on hand, you need a change. Try using the 3-Tier Can Rack Organizer instead. It can hold different sized cans and allows for you to place them in a way that they are easily seen. These can save a ton of space!

Use Every Square Inch

Remember that door that we talked about earlier that hides all those things that are lurking in your pantry?  Use that space on your door!  It’s an area that you might as well be utilizing to free up more shelf space.  Look at installing the Door Mount Cabinet Organizer!  It hangs on the door to save you space, and you can place your plastic wrap or other items in it for easy access. 

End Bakeware Frustration

How much time do you spend digging around for the proper bakeware that you are wanting to bake with?  If your answer was longer than a few seconds, then your current method of storing those items isn’t working.  You need to revamp how you store your heavily used baking items in your pantry.  They should be easy to access and grab when needed.  Give the StoreMore Bakeware Rack a peek and see if it would fit well in your pantry.  It has different built-in dividers that help you organize your pans, baking sheets, and any other items in a nice and neat organized manner.

See All Your Spices at Once

Quit playing hide and seek with your spice jars. Get them visible, all at the same time!  Nothing is more frustrating than when you are cooking and need to find the basil quickly.  But where, or where, did the basil go?? Take out the time spent searching and the frustration that comes along with it by using a Spice Gripper Clip Strip.  (try saying that fast five times!)  Not only does this allow all your spices to be viewed easily, it keeps them all in one place as well!  Sounds like a win to me! 

Use a Carousel for Random Items

Don’t let your Tupperware or any random item become your nemesis in your pantry!  Instead, find ways to organize it better.  Tupperware seems to have a mind of its own at times. The lids are never with the containers… ever.  You have the ability to change that.  Look at implementing Lazy Susan Organizer for your Tupperware or random item needs.  This handy little gadget is a fun carousel that spins for easy access.

Your pantry doesn’t need to get the best of you.  You can control it, you can organize it!  Try a few of the suggested items above and see if they help clear that clutter!  You may be surprised how a few easy changes can quickly give your pantry that facelift that it needs.  Less clutter in your pantry means less clutter in your mind!

Declutterathon Day 21: Organize Your Recipes

And we’ve reached the final day!! Yahoo! Now what are we going to do with all our extra time? 😉 How many boxes did you take to the thrift store? I think I took about 3 boxes and I sold a few items as well.

Here’s our last task:

Organize your recipes. Maybe make a meal plan for February?

My recipe collection can always use a little help. I currently have three “systems” going on for recipe organization. A binder, cookbooks and . I’m sure there are some recipes in my binder that can be recycled as we no longer enjoy the meals. Cookbooks…I only have a few so they’ll stay. Pinterest, I have plans to add more boards so I can get more specific in the recipe type. Currently I have one board for all the main dinner recipes that interest me. So, I’d like to create a few more boards to separate them a bit. (ex: a board for chicken recipes, slow cooker recipes…and so on).

How do you organize your recipes? Do you have any great recipes to share? 🙂

Declutterathon Day 20: Purge Linens

Declutterathon Day 20: Purge Linens

Here we are. The second to final day of the Declutterathon! Can you believe it? Does your house seem lighter? I’m pretty a happy with the way our place is feeling, but I think I’ll keep tinkering on a few more areas.

I’m happy to report that our linen situation is actually in pretty good shape! I think I may have a few extras that I could purge, but other than that I’ll just do some reorganizing.

How is your linen situation?

Declutterathon Day 19: Purge Office Supplies

Declutterathon Day 19: Purge Those Office Supplies

It seems like I have office supplies scattered about the house in different bins and baskets. Included in those supplies are items that I’ve been hanging on to because I think I’ll “need it one day.” Well, I’d say it’s been over 5 years and I still haven’t used some of those things! Time to say good-bye, I think!

At our new home, I now have a desk, but my office supplies are currently scattered all about the house in different bins and drawers. Time to wrangle everything up and get it all together in one spot!

If you’re looking for some ideas on how to organize things, there might be some inspiration for you in these posts I did: Creative Ways to Use Ordinary Objects for Organizing.

Are your office supplies out of control?

Declutterathon Day 18: Organize/Clean Pantry Cupboards

In our home, I have a few cupboards and shelves devoted to pantry stuff. No official pantry, but it works for me! However, after a while, things start to get messy in those places because I tend to get a bit careless when I’m putting things away. (Mainly because I’m trying to hurry since putting things away is not one of my favourite things to do.)

I think I can do so much better with getting like items with like items. So that’s what I’ll be concentrating on today.

In case you’re looking for some inspiration on how to organize your pantry, here’s a post I did that has a bunch of links to pantry organization ideas.

What’s your pantry situation like?
