8 Pantry Hacks For Ultimate Kitchen Organisation

An organised pantry will not only make cooking dinner easier, it will save you from buying groceries that you already have hidden amongst the mess!

Check out these top hacks on how to organise your kitchen pantry once and for all.

1. Check use by dates

It’s totally normal to have a pantry that is chock-a-block full of out-of-date items, but do yourself a favour and dispose of these immediately. It will clear space in your pantry in a flash.

4. Use stackable airtight containers

They make better use of space and keep produce fresher for longer – they will also keep pantry moths at bay.

6. Lazy Susans are your best friend

Lazy Susans are a great way to group spreads like jam and peanut butter with easy access. Keep items you use regularly at eye level and items you use less often on a higher shelf in your pantry.

7. Use open tubs for snack items

Store theses tubs below eye level so you can empty packets into the tub and the whole family can see what’s available.
