What is the best way to organize a food pantry?

The important thing about organizing any space in your home is to find a system that works for you. If you organize the space and things just don’t seem to work, try again. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right way to keep things nice and tidy in a way that works for you on a daily basis.

The first thing I recommend when organizing is to start from scratch. Empty everything out so you have a clean slate to work with. Throw away things that are expired, wipe down the shelves, and envision how you’d like your pantry to look.

Bags and boxes take up a ton of space in our pantry and it does not give it a cohesive look.  I organize my dry ingredients by using containers that fit vertically in my pantry to give me more space, they look nice and don't cost a lot of money.  I'm a fan of Pyrex Snapware.  Another tip is that with deep shelves you can often layer your dry ingredients by putting taller ones in the back and shorter ones in the front.  I cut off the instructions and tape them on the back of the containers, and I use a label maker to write what is in the container.  This way I can remove the label if something changes in the container.
