For Every Minute Organizing, an Hour is Earned. – Unknown
We went grocery shopping and when we got home, there was no place to fit the food we bought. The pantry had really gotten out of hand. We are going to show you the steps we took to make the pantry look much nicer and also make it much easier to find what you’re looking for. We did not use much to do this DIY. Just a few things we had lying around the house.
Here is what we used:
- Wrapping Paper
- Washi Tape
- Permanent Marker
Here is what out pantry looked like starting out. ..
As you can see it is just very cluttered and we did have some boxes in there from prior organization.
The first step we took to complete this pantry organization was to find all extra boxes we had lying around the house. All shapes and sizes.
The next step we took was to separate all the food into categories. (Ex. pasta, cans, spices, tea.) Once you do this you can wrap your boxes to make them look nice. (This step is optional.) We just used some old Christmas wrapping paper and turned it to the white side.
Next check to see what food fits best in each box. This can be overwhelming, just take your time.
Once everything fit to out liking we labeled the boxes with Washi Tape.
1.In the first square from the top we have a spot for snacks and Ramen. We made sure to have a bin for popcorn because that is our favorite snack.
2.In the next square we have our cooking spices and hot sauce .
3.In the Last square on the top row, we have peanut butter and pasta sauce. Right behind that we havea few big cans
4.In the first square on the bottom row, we have our caned goods and a bin for our hot cocoa and tea.
5. In The bottom row, middle square, we have our rice and oatmeal. We used plastic cereal boxes for the rice.
6.In the last square on the bottom row, we have all of our pasta noodles.
Here is a picture of our masterpiece when it was finished…
Now lets just hope we can keep it that way!
We really hope this gave you inspiration to organize your pantry as well. Happy organizing!
