An organized pantry is one of the first steps to a functional kitchen and overall household. By keeping your kitchen pantry organized, you may eventually see your organization habits overflow to other parts of your home.
A pantry organization system makes it easier to grab the items you need and allows you to see what you need to restock. Adopting this organization system will reduce your plastic waste and create more room to house snacks, spices, and treats.
Keep reading to discover five pantry labeling tips to help DIY beginners have a neat, functional, and aesthetically appealing pantry.
Have the Appropriate Organization Containers
To have an organized kitchen, you must invest in affordable, functional, and timeless forms of organization containers. If you have kids who access the pantry, you should invest in stylish plastic containers or natural weave baskets. You want your containers to be cohesive with the rest of your kitchen accessories.
Use Labels and Clips To Help Organize
After you buy your baskets, containers, and a Lazy Susan, you're ready to begin labeling! If you purchased mason jars and plastic containers, then you can place the adhesive labels directly on them. However, if you bought natural woven baskets, you should invest in basket label clips for a smooth and cohesive look.
Have Legible Fonts for Your Labels
Although we encourage unlimited creativity and fun while decorating your labels, you want to ensure that the fonts you use are legible. Your tags should be big enough for the naked eye, and the fonts should be easy to read for anyone. We recommend avoiding cursive writing or crowded labels to prevent confusion.
Keep All Similar Items Together
When organizing your pantry, you should seek to save as much room as possible. Create general labels so that all comparable items can stay together. For example, if you have multiple types of cookies and a small pantry space, you should label your container "cookies" instead of "Oreo, chocolate chip, and macadamia cookies."
Use Your Creativity and Have Fun!
The best tip for labeling your pantry items is thinking creatively and having fun organizing! You can decorate your chalkboard labels with simple patterns, fun and legible fonts, or cute nicknames. Overall, you can consider this task to be a step toward a fresh and functional lifestyle.
