Instagram is a great place to find ideas for home organization. There’s no shortage of pantry organizing photos to use as inspiration for whipping your own pantry into shape.

While not everyone wants to go all in on labeled glass jars, there are some helpful takeaways that can be put to work in any pantry. For example, using baskets to contain large collections, increasing visibility with risers and lighting, or thinking outside the pantry to use cabinets or drawers for food storage.

Want to check out some #pantrygoals? These 12 photos offer inspirational, but attainable pantry organization ideas.

Contain Collections with Baskets

Baskets are a classic organizing solution, and they can be useful in pantries, too. Corral large produce collections such as apples and potatoes and keep canned goods, baking supplies, and snacks all in handy, but separate, baskets.

Make it easy to see items in the back with stacked risers, which allow you to place items like cans or spices behind each other without losing visibility. Just be careful in how you stack them, as putting tall items up front can defeat the purpose.

Turn Cabinets into Pantries

View this post on Instagram

A year ago, I posted this cabinet as my cabinet pantry. <Swipe right to see the BEFORE pic.>. During this quarantine, I have made a few adjustment to my kitchen pantry. <See previous post about my new pantry organization.>. Fast forward to TODAY, and now I am using this cabinet to house all my baking supplies. I am using a variety of @oxo pop containers in different sizes @bedbathandbeyond . The @homedepotcanada grey cabinet shelves are deep enough to hold 10 square 0.9 quart oxo containers on the shelf, and 2 0.5 quart rectangle oxo containers on the second shelf. On the bottom shelf I am able to hold 3 2.3 qt (long square container)oxo container and 2 4.4 qt container (large square container) to organize my flours and pasta. I even have enough space to add in 3.4 qt cereal container. This just proves that cabinet pantry can look just as pretty as full size pantry. With the right containers it makes opening the cabinet so much more prettier to look at, while keeping the space functional and organized. When I 👀 look at this, it reduces all my anxiety and calms me. I leave you with this beautiful quote from @mariekondo . “Putting your house in order is the magic that creates a vibrant & happy life.” – Marie Kondo #organization #organizationideas #kitchenorganization #organizedkitchen #organizedmom #getorganized #homeorganization #homeorganizer #homeorganizing #organizedhome #organization #organizationideas #kitchenorganization #organizedkitchen #organizedmom #getorganized #homeorganization #organizedlifestyle #homeorganizer #homeorganizing #professionalorganizer #yourlifewellorganized #homedepotcanada #greykitchen #asiankitchen #organizedhome #bedbathandbeyond #cabinetpantry #thelifechangingmagicoftidyingup #tidyingup #gettingorganised #sparkingjoy #greykitchen #kitchengoals #oxocontainers #pantry #oxobetter #reorganizing #oxopopcontainers

Not everyone has a full pantry space to work with, but organization can make managing a cabinet pantry easier. Consider how you can use containers to maximize space and hang utensils and tools on the doors.

Drawers Can be Pantries, Too

Out of spice cabinet space? Repurpose a shallow drawer where you can lay herbs and spices on their sides.

Add Some Color

Brighten Things Up

Adding bright lighting to your pantry increases visibility so you can more easily find what you’re looking for. If your pantry is short on lighting and you’re hesitant to bring in an electrician, consider stick-up lighting that can be easily added and even set to sense motion and turn on when you open the door.

Install a Ladder

Find yourself constantly using a step stool to reach top shelf items? It might be time to invest in a pantry ladder.

When you’re ready to move on to other areas of your kitchen, check out fridge organizing inspiration, and junk drawer transformations too.
