Small and Awkward Kitchen Pantry Spring Refresh





This post is sponsored by Rubbermaid®; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I am slightly horrified to show you how my kitchen pantry looked before recently reorganizing it.  We've reorganized this space so many times.  In honor of Spring cleaning,  I decided on a few new cohesive storage solutions instead of mismatched bins.  Our pantry is probably the least favorite feature of our entire home.  It is basically a closet in our kitchen and I SO wish it were a walk in.  Maybe with our next home!  So, I have to make due with this small space for now.  Today, I am sharing our small and awkward kitchen pantry Spring refresh featuring Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids™️.

Clear Everything Out

The first step is to completely clear everything out of your kitchen pantry.  I mean everything!  I've tried to organize this space before going shelf by shelf, and it just doesn't work.  You need to start with a clean slate!  We took everything out of our pantry and laid it out on the kitchen island.  We went through and threw away expired food, recycled cardboard, and made a pile of things to donate.

Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids™️ are great for storing small items like trail mix we purchase from the bulk bins

Matching Storage Containers

In the past, I've picked up random storage containers here and there.  It really helps things look neat and organized if you have matching storage.  We have used Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids™️ for several years.  I picked up some fresh ones for our pantry organization and I love how they look.  The best part is, all the containers click onto the lids and the lids click together!  It's great for keeping things organized. Easy Find Lids™️ are also dishwasher, microwave, and freezer safe.  They also come in various sizes, so there is sure to be the right size for your needs.  You can pick up Rubbermaid® Easy Find Lids™️ at most all major retailers!

Get Rid of Packaging

There is nothing that looks more cluttered than packaging.  We like to take our chip/popcorn/snacks and empty them into clear containers.  This helps things look neat and clean.  For snacks, we try to organize them by type of item and then put them in clear storage boxes so we can easily see what we have.

Canned Goods

I have a terrible problem of not inventorying our food prior to going grocery shopping.  We end up with so many doubles of items, its a little ridiculous.  I love these tiered trays to store canned goods so you can actually see what you have.

I really love these tiered storage shelves for stacking canned goods so you can see what you have
