5 Ways to Create Your Dream Pantry
Contain All Boxed and Packaged Food
Re-contain boxed and packaged foods. Put them in clear containers so you can see them. Do this with anything you would keep in an open package, like flour, sugar, rice, pasta, snacks that come in boxes, etc. That way, they are sealed and stay fresh.

Invest in Turn Tables
These are a game changer. They go in the pesky corners where things often get lost. Put them on higher shelves and turn it to see what is in the back. Turn tables are good for jars, oils, vinegars, etc. They are space efficient and things aren’t getting lost anymore. Make sure to measure your pantry shelves to see how deep they are.

Create Levels and Layers
Work your vertical space and layer things. Tracy’s absolute favorite pantry gadget is this mega tiered shelf. It’s deep, so you can stack things and see what you have. Put things in rows and you can see what you’re running low on.

Designate a Home for “Like” Items
Baskets are good for housing “like” items. Take packaged snacks, for example. Things like individual chips, fruit snacks, etc. Take them out of the boxes and put the bags into the basket. They you are able to see what you have or don’t have.
