The kitchen pantry cabinet is every family’s favorite storage location. It usually holds a stockpile of snacks, chips, crackers, supplies and also serves as storage for the best kitchen utensils and items. The pantry is the most used area in the kitchen, so it is essential to keep it organized.

Efficient Storage Ideas for an Organized Pantry Cabinets
1 – Practical Layout
If you live with children, the kids should be able to grab a snack from the pantry easily. Have the lower areas of your pantry cabinet or cupboard filled with their favorite snacks versus silverware or large baking appliances that may put your children at risk. Cutlery, wine glasses, fruit jars and canned goods can be placed in the middle and upper section of the cabinet to keep them intact.
2 – Small Storage Solutions
For smaller items such as herbs and spices, you can place them in a basket, bin or rack. When you’re preparing food, you can pull out the basket and have all your spices and herbs in one go.
3 – Item Placement
Consider putting all perishable goods in front of your pantry cabinet and put non-perishable items at the back of the storage space.
