    • Keep pantry staples in reusable bins or containers to free up space.
    • Bundle similar items together for quick reference and easy reach.
    • Keep small items organized in easy-grab bins.

The pantry is one of the most visited spots in the house. Though stops there tend to be grab-and-go, it can end up looking like a smash-and-grab. Reclaiming control doesn’t have to take days or be daunting. These 3 quick tricks are all you need to have your pantry organized in a snap.


Jump-start your pantry makeover by moving pantry staples—like cereal, rice, pasta, sugar and flour—into clear, airtight storage containers. Pitching the packaging will instantly clear up clutter and make it easy to see when a restock is needed.


Bundling items together in the ways that you actually use them won’t just put the pantry in order, it will make your time in the kitchen more efficient. Storing similar ingredients together makes for quick reference and reach.

Simple Shortcut. Use SNAPWARE® SMART STORE® HOME STORAGE CONTAINERS to create groups for everything from breakfast foods to baking basics.
