21 Items for an Organized Pantry

Happy New Year! Maybe it’s the fresh promise and hope contained in the blank slate of a new year. Maybe it’s putting away all of those cluttering Christmas decorations. Whatever it is, I always feel inspired to organize my entire home in January and the pantry is a great place to start. My pantry is behind that blue porch-screen door. I redecorated and organized my pantry on a VERY tight budget back in 2010.

Three years ago, I didn’t feel like going to the hassle of painting the pantry from it’s original bright red. It is going to be a pain to tape off all of the shelves, but I am ready to paint over the glaring red this year. I’m also ready to invest in a few new storage containers that I think will make life simpler for us.


If you are hoping to organize your pantry this year, I have rounded-up 21 Items for an Organized Pantry that are great options for keeping a tidy space. (Click the link in blue to see them all or click on the image below.)

    Hi Beth, You’re an inspiration, as always! Now I’m gonna go clean and tidy up my pantry. I would like to do a makeover but I’m going to have to think about what I want it to look like … a trip to Hobby Lobby to look at baskets might be in order for further inspiration. Happy New Year!

      Great idea! I haven’t stepped foot in a HobLob for much too long. I think I’ll join you :).
