Small Pantry Organization Tips

Organize Your Space with Zones

It is easier to find a specific item when you at least know the general area you need to go. If you store pantry items grouped with similar items, you have a more efficient long-term kitchen storage system. Use these categories to create zones for your pantry items:

  • Beverages
  • Bottles
  • Bread & Rolls
  • Breakfast Food
  • Cans
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Snacks
  • Spices

Keep Food Containers Contained

We all know the cliché of opening your cabinet to half a dozen food containers tumbling out. Your collection might be mismatched and oddly shaped, but we have some advice for keeping it together. Stack the bottoms into their like shapes (circle containers in circles, rectangles in rectangles, etc.) as best you can. Then keep all the lids together, stored vertically to show off their size and shape.

Stack When You Have the Opportunity

Cans can reliable stack on one another long-term without any issues. If your pantry cabinet space is filling up quickly, start stacking to make the most of that space. Boxes are usually another safe bet—just store your heaviest on the bottom.

Scout Out Open Spaces

When your cabinets and closets are overwhelmed, look to open walls for storage opportunities. Shelves are an easy addition if you have the wall space in your kitchen.

Try a Pull-Out Pantry

If your small kitchen is lacking storage space, a pull-out pantry can be a lifesaver. These pantries are designed to fit in small spaces, and they provide plenty of room for storing dry goods, small appliances, and other items. In addition, pull-out pantries make it easy to find what you need, since everything is stored in one central location. With just a few simple shelves, a pull-out pantry can help you organize your small kitchen and make the most of your limited space.
