While cleaning and organizing a pantry or cupboard can be a daunting task, a few easy steps can help you make ample use of your most-used kitchen space.

Start with a clean sweep of the items you no longer need, and then begin some simple planning to make sure the new arrangement will suit your lifestyle and budget.

Consider a practical layout, like placing items that are not often used toward the back of a shelf, and bringing perishable food items to the front. Be sure to also keep in mind that pantry organization does not require completely remodeling the space.

Small storage solutions, such as a door rack or containers with labels can make all the difference in maintaining visibility and tidiness throughout your kitchen pantry cabinets.
