Keeping the kitchen organized is as important as keeping the pantry organized. Having control of what goes on in every room of the house greatly reduces the stress experienced daily by most people. And the pantry is no exception.
Finding what you need, when you need it, can be facilitated when the pantry is properly organized. This organization will also make it easier to understand what you need to buy when you next shop. To do this, just follow these five tips we have for you:
1- Clean up everything.
From the shelves, the wall and the floor! You will need to empty the shelves, check the condition of the food and clean the cabinets with mild detergent and vinegar to remove grease. Please note that the use of detergents with very strong chemicals may contaminate food.
2- Use transparent jars.
This way you can easily see what’s inside each one. This solution will preserve food better, as they will not be subject to contact with insects and dirt! It is important that each of these bottles is labeled with the expiration date.
3- Baskets and boxes are important organizers.
Put food of the same category in the same basket or box, keeping everything in place and enjoying the space. The idea is to use different boxes for different products to make it easier to identify what the content is.
4- Canned products with forwarding labels.
This care will make it easier to find what you need and therefore help keep the pantry organized.
5- Arrange by the expiration date.
This will prevent waste. Place products with longer shelf life at the bottom of the shelf and those closest to the front end.
Keeping your pantry organized is very simple and it facilitates the management of the house and even savings. Putting a notepad in the pantry to point out what is missing can also be a useful tip. Spend a little more time organizing your pantry and you’ll find it a great investment!
