The Nice Pantry Clear Out

Come contained in the deep, darkish corners of my pantry for the nice pantry clear out as I kind, toss, and arrange what’s inside! 

Our pantry = the place my stress hangs out

Our pantry significantly stresses me out on a regular basis! It’s most likely the realm of my home that’s the least organized at any given minute. I’ve written about it many instances, together with the pantry clean-out problem and a put up about pantry hacks. Take a look at our prime 10 pantry staples right here! The pantry is the place meals and group co-mingle. 

Our pantry has advanced over time. After I first purchased this home it had swing-out doorways that appeared cool however have been a ache to open and shut. We took them off = so significantly better! I additionally used to have a ton of dried items in mason jars. However I’ve principally gone again to not decanting issues for simplicity’s sake. 

I blame the entropy of the pantry on a couple of issues:

  1. There are actually 4 of us digging by means of there every day.
  2. I get free samples greater than the typical particular person, and typically they hang around for some time.
  3. Whenever you’re hangry, you seize what you seize and run! There’s no time to tidy up. 

If and once we renovate this home (or transfer), a walk-in pantry is excessive on the want checklist! I’ve by no means had one and have at all times used a cupboard of some type. In my first home I saved issues within the storage and ended up with bugs within the meals – yikes! However when area is restricted, you need to assume creatively.

So on my newest clean-out day, I believed I’d take you alongside for the experience!

Listed below are the earlier than photographs. Duplicates, expired gadgets, issues within the fallacious place – the works! There may be additionally simply TOO MUCH STUFFED IN. 

My Pantry Clear-Out Technique

1. Take away many of the meals to the counters

2. Type by means of and toss something expired or that we’ll by no means eat

3. Put every little thing again in areas that make sense

The Tidy Pantry After

You’ll be able to see that I had already labeled the cabinets, so I put these classes again as they have been. The most important change wasn’t a complete group overhaul, however simply decluttering the majority of the classes. 

Koozies now have their very own shelf! They have been a giant hassle zone earlier than. I additionally did the exhausting job of consuming the stays of three totally different nut butter jars that have been taking over area however by no means used. 

Further sauces dwell on the highest shelf, and oils and vinegars are on the turntables. 

The hampers home most of our child and grownup snack meals:

  1. Fruit bars and dried fruit (raisins, mangos)
  2. Child pouches and dry snacks like pea pods and goldfish luggage
  3. Grownup snacks (Gratisfied bars and path combine luggage)
  4. Child bars (Z bars, granola bars, and many others.)

I had not one however TWO luggage of expired flour. Eeek! And I used to be in a position to consolidate a number of the oats into a brand new container and recycle the previous. 

Once more, whereas Pinterest would love for me to purchase 100 clear containers, I feel the time it takes regularly to decant every little thing (and briefly oxidize) isn’t actually well worth the visible achieve you get. However I by no means say by no means! 

The spice and herb cupboard is way happier!! 

So there you may have it! 

Nothing dramatic, however an enormous enchancment once you open the pantry doorways.
