Having an organized pantry is one of the best feelings you can have when it comes to your home. If I’m being honest, and you choose to only organize one area in your home, it should be the pantry! Having an organized pantry makes it easier to meal plan, make your grocery list, and eat healthy. If you are looking to make your life just a little bit easier, check out these kitchen pantry organizing ideas.

We do not have a traditional pantry in our home, so we had to make space in our kitchen cabinets for one. This area actually turned out to be the perfect spot because the small drawers are perfect for holding small items. Of course, the first step to organizing any area is removing all items and starting fresh.

One thing I have slowly been doing over time is purchasing containers to hold sugar, flour, pasta, etc. The ones I bought are from Walmart and I love them! They come in different sizes and have a lid that locks to keep contents fresh. I am glad I invested in these and will use them for a long time. Now that I have the containers, it is time to label them.

When I saw these labels on Amazon I knew they were exactly what I was looking for. I labeled all of the containers and now they look neat and uniform.

Don’t they look nice? I am pleased with how they turned out and now there will be no more getting the flour and powered sugar confused! Believe me, that is one mistake you do not want to make with your french toast! Ha!

Now the only thing left to do, is fill the pantry back up. There are four shelves in the pantry, so I tried to group similar items together on each one. As you can see here, I put rice and pastas together on this shelf.

On the bottom shelf, I grouped together the items we use the most which are soups, broths, and sauces. The next shelf holds the rice and pasta, the third shelf holds condiments and other items we don’t use as often. And last, but not least, is the top shelf which holds everything I need for baking.

This is one project I am glad to have complete. I will be sharing part two soon showing how I organized the bottom half of the pantry. I hope you found these kitchen pantry organizing ideas helpful!
