‘I desperately need to organise my pantry. Looking for ideas! Please feel free to spam me with photos of your pantry for some motivation.’
And here are some of the fabulous solutions our NSM mums had to offer…
Natalie: Have you looked on Pinterest? I had a rental application accepted on a house which had a pantry and I got a little overexcited. (Yes, sad I know!) House fell through, but I found lots of ideas on Pinterest.
Kellie: Chuck out anything you have and go buy matching multipurpose containers that all sit on top of each other. Buy good-quality rather than the cheapies. Have a big clean out before you start using the containers. Use a high shelf for unopened items (no-one looks there), have one shelf with containers and areas/baskets for snacks, and a separate area for tins. Personally, I love Tupperware – it’s worth every cent as it lasts forever, washes well and is generally see-through.
Aletia: We have some quite deep, tall shelves in our pantry, so I bought some IKEA VARIERA shelf inserts to help make better use of the space, while still being able to access everything.
Sarah: I swear by Tupperware Modular Mates. They all stack together and you can get any size! Label them and then eliminate opened packets. This is our walk-in pantry in our newly reno’d kitchen. Have Tupperware up top and cans etc as well as spare unopened stuff in drawers. Have a pull-out pantry in the kitchen for sauces etc.
