Organizing Your Pantry
The important part is to just start. Analyze what you buy and choose certain areas for different category of items. Designating areas for snacks, weekday meals, baking, lunches, etc makes it easy to use up what you have and see what you need, not only saving money but cutting down on meal prep time. Now that is a true win!
It makes sense to put items you use most often in areas that are easiest to reach. Don't overcrowd your shelves or you won't be able to see what you have. If you have an excess of certain items, you can store those in cabinets in the rest of the kitchen or maybe even the laundry room, garage or basement. For goods staying in your pantry, you can achieve a classy look by using matching containers for your storage. Rectangular containers (glass jars, plastic bins, baskets ) make the best use of your space. These can be as expensive or not as you please.
