Creating a Kitchen Pantry Organizer

Having a kitchen pantry organizer is a great idea if you lack a lot of space. They will free up space and allow you to store more with ease.

Step 1 - Evaluate Type of Organization

Before you decide to create a storage system, analyze your needs. Your storage options will vary depending on the size and shape of the space you have. If your pantry is deep and dark, a roll-out organizer will be great for storing large, bulky items. If you store a lot of canned food, consider wire baskets. If you have a tall pantry, use space on the back of the door to hang an organizer for small items, like spices and sauces.

Step 2 - Decide Between Individual Components or Kits

Depending on your needs, you may be able to just purchase a few components rather than an entire storage system. If your main problem is storing cans, you can purchase a can organizer for much cheaper than an entire roll-out shelving system. If you need a place to store packets of gravy, then a behind-the-door organizer or a simple basket will work best.

If your pantry is cramped beyond recognition, then investing in a roll-out system will be worth the money. Otherwise, look to clear plastic bins, boxes and bottles that fit together to save space and easily allow you to see what is inside.
