Clear canisters with tight-fitting lids are a great way to save space and keep food fresh. These sealed lids keep everything from baking supplies to cereals fresh and more compact in your cabinets. Clear canisters are great because you can easily see how much of each item you have left.
If at all possible, store large baking equipment such as bowls or baking pans in the pantry near the baking supplies. You are more likely to use these items when you can see them, plus they’ll help save cabinet space in the kitchen.
Snacks that are individually wrapped should be stored out of their boxes and into bins. Organize snacks by type and label each bin. This helps create an easy grab and go option and you’ll have one or two boxes of items instead of a bunch!
There is nothing worse than a bag of crushed chips or crackers. Prevent items in bags from being crushed by corralling them in various containers. Placing bags of easily crushable items, such as chips or breads in baskets helps keep their shape.
Jars and bottles can be difficult to see when they’re all piled on one shelf. A lazy Susan can keep you organized and help you see items of the same category such as sandwich spreads or vinegars and oils.
Frequently used items should always be kept at eye level so you’re not stuck searching around for them. Items that are large or more utilitarian, should be kept on the floor.
