Summer Pantry Organization

It's officially our favorite time of the year, SUMMER! Today we're sharing tips to help you & the kids keep the pantry neat, organized and stocked with lots of snacks!

WHAT TO PURCHASE

BASKETS

Baskets will help to keep your categories together. We love the look of clear bins so everything is visible and easy to find. If clear bins aren't your style, wicker look great too!

AIRTIGHT CONTAINERS

Get rid of the boxes in your pantry and place items like pasta, cereal & crackers in airtight containers. This set of 12 from Amazon is a steal!

LABELS

You spend a lot of time organizing and making your pantry perfect... Labels are a simple solution to make sure everything gets put away properly. We love these labels from The Home Edit at The Container Store! If you prefer to do them yourself, a white chalk marker works perfectly!

WHAT TO DO

REMOVE EVERYTHING

It's important to start this project with a blank slate. Remove everything from your pantry and purge old or unused items as you go.

SORT

Put all of your items into these categories:

Grains

Drinks

Snacks

Canned goods

Baking supplies

Sweets

Breakfast foods

DESIGNATE BASKETS/CONTAINERS

Decide which items are best for your airtight containers and place them in there. Organize the rest of your categories in their own baskets.

STRATEGIC PLACEMENT

When placing your containers and baskets back in your pantry, think about what shelf they make the most sense on. For example: snacks & drinks should go lower so the kids can easily grab on their own & breakable items should be kept higher to prevent accidents.

LABEL

Finish your project by labeling all your baskets & containers! Remind your kids to follow those labels when they are rummaging for snacks or helping put the groceries away.
