Here’s one of the best pantry organization ideas that works for just about any kitchen. An over-the-door pantry rack instantly adds space whether you’re hanging it over your actual pantry door or a closet doubling as a make-shift pantry (small home dwellers, you know what we’re talking about). Amazon shoppers can’t stop raving about this easy-to-install kitchen storage solution.
Forget the open boxes and half-empty bags. Keep things uniform and farmhouse chic by storing dry ingredients like pasta, rice and oats in pantry storage containers like these glass jars. Choose the size that fits your lifestyle (or all four sizes because why not) and watch as it transforms your space into your dream pantry.
Now that you’ve stocked up on chic glass jars, snag these pantry labels for expert-level organizing. Though it’s already easy to see what’s in the clear glass jars, these labels take it to the next level and make it extra easy for little ones to grab when they’re helping you in the kitchen. One writer tried the TikTok-famous pantry labels and says it took her pantry storage game to the next level.
Not only are kitchen carts fun, they’re practical. This five-tier rolling cart does double duty as a genius organizer for walk-in pantries or as a make shift pantry in small apartments. Roll it wherever your heart desires!
If you don’t have a potato storage container, onion keeper or storage for non-refrigerated produce, never fear. These stackable wire baskets aren’t just easy on the eyes, they offer a home for all your fruits and veggies. The bamboo top adds visual appeal while making them stackable. Stack ’em or set them side by side, the choice is yours!
All those canned vegetables and soups you have are easy to stack—but it doesn’t make for a very visually-appealing pantry. That’s why we lean on a can rack organizer. It only takes up 18-inches of pantry shelf space and automatically pushes unused cans to the front. Bonus: Two sets stack on top of each other.
Pre-Packaged Food Station
Snack packets and pre-packed foods can easily overflow into a cluttered mess. Create a fun yet functional station with these food packet organizers. Granola bars, apple sauce packets and individual chip bags finally have a home!
The corner of the pantry is difficult to organize—what can you put there that won’t get buried in the back or fit awkwardly? The answer is a lazy Susan. The spinning wheel is perfect for a corner space and prevents anything from being forgotten. You can’t go wrong with these lazy Susan ideas, either.
Expandable Spice Shelf
Don’t have a cabinet or drawer savvy for spices? The pantry shelf makes a wonderful alternative. But you’re going to need this expandable spice shelf to make the most out of it. The three-tiers make it easy to see what’s in the back without having to pull out the kitchen step stool. It works in any cabinet, too. You can’t go wrong with these genius spice storage ideas, either.
Stackable Clear Bins
Every kitchen needs clear pantry organization bins for snacks and back stock ingredients that get cluttered fast. These clear bins are a favorite of Amazon shoppers for their open-front design that makes it easy to grab just what you need without having to get the entire bin down. Plus, it makes the most of lofty shelf space thanks to their stackable design. How’s that for smart pantry organization ideas?
