How To Organize Your Pantry

Organizing your kitchen pantry can be a challenge.  What do I keep? Where do I put things? What storage containers do I use?   My pantry was a mess!  My friend, Laura Lawrence, a professional organizer came to my rescue and helped me organize my food pantry using a method called STACKS.  The word means, Sort, Toss, Assign a home, Contain, Keep it up, Simplify.

I have a problem tossing anything away… (a pack rat problem.)  I’m one of those, "just in case I need it," kind of gals. You know…"Just in case I need it 15 years down the road…  that is… if I can find it under all this stuff."  Growing up, I must have picked up the 1930’s Great Depression attitude from my Mom and Grandma.   

I video taped this pantry make-over, hoping you can learn a few tips that will help you organize your kitchen pantry.  This video is so informative… you’ll want to tell a friend.



This kitchen pantry party has inspired me to organize the rest of my kitchen… my studio, and my office.  Now just finding the time… Oh my!
