STEP 1: Sort through all of your items.
Create a category for any items to trash, keep, donate, or relocate. Do not forget to check the expiration dates!
STEP 2: Categorize.
Put like items with like items! Keeping items together in similar categories, allows you to maintain the system, have a quicker and easier clean up, and creates less clutter over time. Some pantry categories can be canned goods, grains, oil/vinegars, and snacks.
STEP 3: Maximize your space.
STEP 4: Organize
Invest in products that you love and that will assist in keeping your space functional. Clear bins and food safe lid containers are great to use for items that you would like to see.
