Ok ok ok - I got about 30284 messages about this one and so I thought it'll only make sense to write a proper guide and also attach all the links you wanted!
It took my awhile to find all the right containers as I wanted them all to be a the same height. Here's all the links you need:
- Label maker - worked like an absolute dream
- Big containers - perfect for flour, sugar, cereal - unfortunately the ones I got are out of stock, but maybe these will be a suitable alternative
- Medium containers - perfect for cocoa powder, oats, lentils
- Small containers - perfect for chia seeds, baking soda, flax seeds
Having an organised kitchen pantry can make cooking and meal prep much more efficient and enjoyable. Here’s how I did it:
Empty out the drawers and assess your inventory
The first step in organising your drawers is to empty them out completely. This will give you a chance to see what you have and assess what you need to keep or toss. I used this opportunity to go through my dry ingredients and make sure everything was still fresh and usable.
Group similar items together
Once you’ve gone through your inventory, start grouping similar items together. For example, group all your baking ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, etc.) in one section and your grains (rice, quinoa, pasta, etc.) in another. This will make it easier to find what you need when you’re cooking.
I found that using clear containers to store my dry ingredients was a game-changer as it easy to see what I have also also made be conscious on what needs topping up.
Labelling your containers is a must if you want to keep everything organised. I used a label maker to create labels for each container, but you can also use a marker or stickers.
Arrange the containers in the drawers
Once you have everything sorted and labeled, it’s time to put everything back into the drawers. I also made sure to leave a little bit of space between each container, so they’re easy to grab and put back.
Keep it up!
Finally, it’s important to keep up and make sure to check your inventory regularly and reorganise the drawers as needed
