An Organized Pantry

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
Ugh the dreaded pantry. It seems I can never find what I'm looking for but what I can find is 4 cans of expired tomato paste. It's become our spot to put things that don't have their own place. Like wrapping paper? and candles? A pantry is supposed to be for food not junk. On top of cleaning it out I would love to organize everything. I went to good ole Pinterest for some inspiration:











I like the basket look but I think they would take up too much space. Also, how cool is the chalkboard on the doors? That would be an easy DIY to do but make sure you want it that way for good because I'm pretty sure it's permanent. My plan is to buy some plastic containers this week and work on organizing the pantry. I love this pantry tour video Lisa Leake from 100 Days of Real Food posted.


She's my inspiration, she's so organized and always has healthy meals planned plus she's so calm and never seems stressed. You can also watch her freezer tourrefrigerator tour, and kitchen tour.


Any advice on organizing your pantry?

  1. Ok, definitely jealous of these people's organizational skills. My pantry is a hot mess! I need to find some way to organize it that doesn't take up a ton of room since my pantry is kind of small. Love these ideas!

  2. I always love when I go to someone's house and their organized pantry makes you want to drool over its perfection. I want mine to look that way too but always seem to find a bigger project that needs to be tackled first. Do you keep your spices in there? That's always my biggest challenge!

  3. i know it's lame but i can't wait to have a bigger house so we can have a linen closet!! i have all our extra blankets shoved into the closet with our washer + dryer...and bikes...and a ton of other crap. We dont have a pantry either so that'd be nice :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. OH how I dream about being that organized.... and I would love to have that sort of storage space. UGH! I need a pantry the size of a bedroom for all the stuff I try and cram in there! Love the chalkboard idea!

  6. I wish I had a bigger pantry, I'd use a lot of these ideas! Mine is fairly small, and pretty organized...but I think that's mostly because it is so small-I don't tend to have a TON of stuff in there since I don't really have the room. A big walk in pantry is my dream!

  11. Damn, somebody loves them some labels haha. I keep pasta, rice, grits, etc. in clear canisters so I can see how low I'm running (and yes those have labels). It's like a constant chore to keep all that crap in place for sure!

  15. That first one looks amazingly functional! We don't even have a pantry in our house and the kitchen doesn't have a space so our food storage is often a bit of a disaster.
