5 Tips for Small Pantry Organization 

Looking for ideas to create a small pantry organization system in your house? When you have little storage space, especially in your kitchen area, you may need to get inventive to find answers. ABC Storage has a number of suggestions for transforming a tiny pantry. Learn how to make the most of your limited space!

Tips for Small Pantry Organization

Whether you want to completely remodel your pantry or make better use of the small pantry space you already have, there are plenty of ways you can organize this essential part of your kitchen. 

Consider Every Open Space as an Option for Storage & Get Creative 

If you have a small cabinet and little pantry space, consider looking for possible open areas in your house. Do you have wall area above your sink that can be used to support open shelves? Consider whether an island in your kitchen might be able to expand. Look outside the kitchen for ideas as well; a corridor between your kitchen and living room may accommodate a bigger cabinet or storage mechanism while still allowing easy access to your things.

Install a Pull-Out Pantry 

Space allowing, a pull-out pantry is an efficient storage addition in a kitchen. You are able to see each item as you pull the door out—with no back corners that they can hide in—and you can tuck away everything out of sight at the end of prepping your meal for a clutter-free kitchen. It is not only a space-saving solution but money-saving, as well. When you can better see all the items in your pantry, you are less likely to overlook soon-to-expire foods.

Keep a Handle on Food Storage Containers 

You’ll need an organizational method for your food storage containers if you have a lot of Tupperware and Pyrex dishes. We propose stacking the bottoms on top of each other and keeping their lids upright. Keep them at eye level to keep yourself safe, so you do not end up with the entire pile toppling over as soon as you open the cabinet door.

Group Your Pantry Items 

The first rule of organization is generally grouping like items together. Once you have figured out the layout of your pantry, consider these categories for easy-to-find storage: 

  • Cans
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Bread/Rolls
  • Breakfast Food
  • Snacks
  • Spices
  • Bottles/Beverages

Stack When You Can 

You’ll probably have only a few shelves in your very first pantry location. Consider the items, such as cans and boxes, that can be stacked on top of each other over time. This can assist you in clearing up additional space quickly.
