Pantry Makeover – Essential Tips

nullPlanning to give a complete makeover to your pantry? If yes, you have come to the right place. Whether you have a walk-in butler pantry or a single cabinet, proper storage and organization is a must to ensure minimum wastage of the food stored in it. It will also help you save money as you will no longer end up buying edibles that you already have in stock.

The first step is removing all the articles from the pantry, sorting them in different categories like baking and cooking and throwing away those items that have passed the expiry date. The next step is to prepare an inventory of what is in your pantry and where you would like to put them. You should also stock up on necessary items that you might have run out of. Third, decide on the shelving that you want in your pantry and purchase the same online.

Assign a separate rack for different items such as canned goods, dry goods, baking supplies, boxed foods, beverages condiments and snacks and clean your pantry regularly, rotating your stock to ensure that oldest purchase is used the first.
