Simple ways to store and organise your pantry essentials
How best to store and keep track of all those food items that don’t go in the fridge or freezer? Perhaps you have a separate pantry – or simply need to make the most of your kitchen shelf, drawer and cabinet space. Either way, here are a few ideas to better organise those groceries that you only use up gradually, rather than straight away.
See-through food containers hold no surprises
If you transfer your pantry items from their packaging into transparent food containers, you can more easily keep track of what you have. You can always label them if you need to. Instead of a mishmash of packets, boxes and bags, you’ll have your food staples stored neatly and efficiently.
Pantry regulars that are always in reach
When the most-used items are always within easy reach, you can remove some of the strain from your kitchen routines. For example, a breakfast trolley that you can simply wheel into position or a wall grid with herbs, spices and preserves. The key is to think about creating an effortless flow around mealtimes.
Clever products to create more pantry space
Shelf inserts and clip-on baskets can come in very handy whenever the full height of a pantry shelf is going unused. They’re inexpensive and easy to add or remove as your needs change. So that you can quickly add extra storage capacity, with no need for drilling or major renovation.
