Tips for organizing your pantry:

  • Go through and purge/throw out old, outdated food.
  • Sort food by boxed and canned foods in separate areas of the pantry.
  • Consider using stacking plastic organizers and label with contents. Use these for cereals, crackers, spaghetti and dried goods.
  • Keep heavy items like bottled water, cans and small appliances on the bottom of the pantry for easy access.

Pro Tip: Barley|Pfeiffer Architects typically recommends 3 depth levels for pantry shelving and storage: 6 inches for canned goods, 12 inches for boxed goods and canisters and 16 inches for small appliances and large storage (dog food, etc.)
