For any home cook, knowing where your “go-to” items are when you need them is essential.

There are many ways to organize your pantry and you will ultimately best based on your needs and preferences. Here are five simple steps to help you reorganize your pantry:
We get it. The organization of your pantry might not be the top item on your priority list. If you’re even considering it, you’ve most likely been putting the task off for some time now. Here’s some news: you can tackle this project in the matter of a weekend. It’s not as big of a chore as you might have thought. Here’s an added bonus: an organized pantry will save you time, it will save you money, and it will teach you about your shopping, eating, and cooking habits. All this information is quite valuable when it comes to budgeting and planning your meals.
The ‘DeClutter’ Process
Some times, when you want to organize an area, you need to throw any previous organization away before you can dive into a new system that will ultimately be more beneficial. Start by taking stock of what you already have, keep track of what items you use most frequently and how much of those items you use, and examine which items might be taking up unnecessary space that you could use for more important food items.
The most common way to organize items in your pantry is by size. While this can help you save space in your pantry, it won’t be the easiest way to have the ingredients you need at your fingertips when the time comes. If you want to have what you need, when you need it, you should consider arranging items in your pantry by use, which means putting jarred items with jarred items, canned with canned, and so forth. This is a simple way to make things in your kitchen flow more smoothly.
