Pantry Makeover -Using Baskets & Trays to Keep Organized

Walk In Pantry Makeover by
I struggle with organizing and am always trying to improve that part of life, so today I’m excited to share some images of my current pantry and proud that it looks the same a month after these photos! I’ve done a couple pantry makeovers on my blog because we’ve moved quite a bit, but this is the largest pantry we’ve ever had and I admit…it’s pretty fantastic. The only thing is, it’s super easy to just throw clutter in and shut the door! Ha

That’s probably the reason it’s looked like this for the last year! See before/after photos below.

I also started collecting clearance trays and baskets from discount stores like Ross. It’s helped me to keep like items together and separated.  The file organizer turned out perfect for canned goods, see photo below.

Baskets for Snack & Pantry Storage Fancy Frugal LIfeIt was important to me to have the paper plates, cups, napkins, cutlery, and plastic bags organized and ready for my kids to help make lunches and meals. I also have all their snacks together in one basket.
