5 Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Are you searching for ideas to create a small pantry organization system in your house? When you have a minimal amount of storage area, particularly in your kitchen, you may need to get inventive to find solutions. Albany Super Storage has a list of suggestions for converting a tiny pantry. Find out how you can make the most of what you’ve got!

Tips for Small Pantry Organization

Whether you want to completely remodel your pantry or make better use of the small pantry space you already have, there are plenty of ways you can organize this essential part of your kitchen. 

Consider Every Open Space as a Storage Option and Use Your Imagination

If you have little cabinet and pantry space, consider your home’s open areas. Do you have wall space above your sink that might be used to hold open shelves? Consider a kitchen island that may be expanded on. Look outside the kitchen for ideas as well; a corridor between your kitchen and living room may accommodate a bigger cabinet or storage system while still allowing easy access to your possessions.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry 

Space allowing, a pull-out pantry is an efficient storage addition in a kitchen. You are able to see each item as you pull the door out—with no back corners that they can hide in—and you can tuck away everything out of sight at the end of prepping your meal for a clutter-free kitchen. 

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

If you have a lot of Tupperware and Pyrex containers, you’ll need to find an organizing solution for your food storage containers. The bottoms should be stacked on top of one another while the lids are kept vertically. Make sure not to store your containers so high in cabinets that they could cause an overhead avalanche. To keep yourself safe, keep them at eye level.

Group Your Pantry Items 

The first rule of organization is generally grouping like items together. Once you have figured out the layout of your pantry, consider these categories for easy-to-find storage: 

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

Stack When You Can 

Odds are you have only a few shelves to work with in your initial pantry space. Think about which items, like cans and boxes, can be safely stacked on top of each other long-term. This will help to clear up additional space quickly.
