Do you just throw things in your pantry? There is kinda a spot for things but really everything is randomly thrown in there. I’m going to let you know how you can organize your pantry for CHEAP. $20 or less.
I LOVE to organize but I don’t like spending a lot of cash to do so. So I stroll around at Dollar Tree to see what they have to help me with my addiction. We bought our home in 2014. When you buy a new home or move into a new place it gives you the opportunity to reorganize things, redecorate, get rid of things, buy new things etc. ONE of the things I wanted to do in our new home was to have a better system for the pantry. I would put things in there neatly and similar items together but I wasn’t happy with it. As I’ve told you in this post where I organized my laundry room, I’m a little OCD. (Even though I haven’t been tested) Here is a picture of our pantry BEFORE I organized it.
While strolling through Dollar Tree I found some containers that I felt would work well in the pantry. Of course, I got blue because blue is my favorite color. I was planning to categorized everything and put it in a bin. Sounds simple enough right. So all you need to organize your pantry are:
That’s it! SIMPLE and CHEAP! If you have a label maker. You can use that instead of the sharpie. (I just thought about the label maker. I might go through and put labels. Project for this week! I love my label maker!) Here is a picture of our pantry AFTER I organized it.
I know that everyone’s pantry items vary but here are some of the categories I wrote on my bins so that you can get started.
Any plans to organize your pantry now that you see how SIMPLE and CHEAP it is? If you already have an organized pantry, what did you use to organize? I’d love to hear (and see) it! Share pictures!
