The pantry is often the last place to get cleaned, yet we often dream of having a Pinterest-perfect space.

It might not feel obtainable due to a busy schedule, but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

Don’t worry.It’s never too late. Your pantry can and will be looking beautiful in no time with these simple steps. Follow along.

1. Break It into Zones

Stop! Before you overwhelm yourself with trying to figure out where to start, take a deep breath.

Depending on the size of your pantry, break it up into different zones.

It’s important to remember that everyone is unique, so it’s okay if you don’t have something on this list or you have to add something.

-Canned Goods


-Dry Goods (Pasta, Rice, Grains, Nuts, etc.)


-Backstock (Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, etc.)

Now, once you decided how you wanted to section off your pantry, it’s time to get things ready.

2. Take Inventory

Next, you will want to take inventory of what you currently have and what you still need.

If you don’t have time to head to the store right now, that’s okay. Make a mental note of where the new items will go, and when next you go to the store, you can add them then.

Once you have everything written down, start organizing the pantry to your desired look.

3. Utilize the Door

Always utilize all the space that you have, and that includes the door.

If your pantry has a door, we recommend picking up this hanging organizer that you can find at Target or a similar one at your local store.

By doing this, you can free up a ton of shelf space. Put drinks, can food, oils, or even your spices in the hanging organizer, so that you have more room on the shelves for the bulkier items.

4. Create A Kid-Friendly Space

Designate a shelf or a basket for each of your kid’s snacks.

By doing this, they can help put their groceries away and learn to keep their area looking nice.

5. Keep Going

Life gets busy. Whether with school, work, family, or whatever it might be, we can often find ourselves getting behind on things with the house.

Budget twice a month to spend ten minutes reorganizing and cleaning everything so that you don’t need to spend hours on end to get it back to looking good.

Finally snap a pick and show off your pantry on Pinterest!
