This past week I spent some time cleaning out and organizing our pantry. Oh it was a mess! We had been stuffing more than just food in there for a couple years and I wasn't sure what we even had anymore. I rearranged, pillaged through, and cleaned up the pantry and by the end of it I wanted to completely renovate it... but that's a whole new can of beans. ;)
Week 3 Pantry:
- Start at the middle shelves. Finish the top and bottom shelves last.
- Remove expired items.
- For similar items, put them in order by expiration date with the closest date in front.
- Put the least used items on the top shelves and the bottom shelves. The middles shelves at eye level deserve the most used/rotated items.
- You can use organizers like these to help utilize the space and organize items efficiently:
