9 Organization Tips to Maximize Pantry Storage

Stackable Storage

One of the easiest ways to increase the space in your pantry is by investing in stackable storage containers. These food storage containers help organize the space on your shelves, and their stacking features quickly free up even more room.

Pegboard Wall

If you have a bare wall in your pantry, put it to good use by installing a pegboard that will help you organize miscellaneous kitchen items like brooms, mops, and aprons.

Canned Goods Storage

Canned goods can take up a lot of space in your pantry, especially if they get shoved to the back and are forgotten. A simple way to remedy this is with a canned goods storage dispenser. This rack will keep your canned goods organized and easily accessible at all times.

Lazy Susan

Adding a Lazy Susan to your pantry is a great way to keep your space organized. Whether you choose to add a large built-in turntable or a small removable one for sauces and dressing, it will definitely help you save space and time.

Undershelf Baskets

The top half of a shelf can often be underutilized, but it’s a great place to store extra items in your kitchen. Adding a few undershelf baskets to your pantry can greatly enhance the space.

Use the Back of the Door

Another part of the pantry that often goes unused is the back of the door. You can increase the room in your pantry by adding a door rack for quick snacks, bottles, cans, and more.

Sort By Category

Sorting your pantry by category can help you organize your dry goods. Use catch-all baskets for snacks like granola bars, or fruit chews, and toss out the big box they come in to save space.

Clear Food Containers

Clear food containers make it easy to see what you have so you don’t make a mess searching for a certain item. This storage hack also lets you know when you need to replace an item.

Chip Clip Snack Station

If you’re a family of snackers, then the chip clip station is a great way to make snacks accessible while saving loads of space on the shelves. Install a vertical rail to attach chip clips, store your snacks on the clips, and you’re good to go!

Invest in Custom Shelving

If you’ve tried all of the tips and tricks and you still don’t have the space you need in your pantry, then it might be time to invest in custom shelving. There are plenty of places that can create shelves for your pantry, or if you’re handy, you can design them yourself. Either way, if the shelves you have now are not cutting it, creating a new flow of storage in the pantry can really help maximize your space.
