Many home purchases come with pantries that already have some sort of pantry shelving system in place, but what does a homeowner do if they want to replace these, to make it more efficient and accessible? Well, the answer can be found in any multitude of home improvement and furniture stores in your area. Pantry shelving units, can be found in national chain stores in just about every material imaginable. The most popular choices include wire shelving, pre-made wooden units, and plastic shelving systems. There are also a wide number of features that users can choose in order to simplify their designs and maximize their space. Items such as corner shelves, door shelving units, and pull-out, or sliding, pantry cabinets.
A pantry that you can depend on is convenient to use and can store up back-up packages for every item you purchased for home use. A simple rule to follow is a systematic storing of additional packs for every product from toothbrushes to tortellini. You can start to have one by having at least three-day food supply for the family and adding a reserve for another person. For bigger or mid-sized pantries, stored food supplies can last for two weeks to a month for a family to survive, especially in emergency cases. The pantry can store packages of fresh foods, powdered milk, fruits and vegetables and other products for everyday use. Having a good monitoring of supplies to be bought draws you from taking a long list of things to buy as what is usually done in traditional home organization. A good storage process in a pantry uses everything purchased and not simply buying a product and after a few months you would wonder why a certain product was bought.
Keeping The Pantry Well Organized Now that you have your pantry cleaned and organized, you will want to follow these few easy tips to keep it that way: 1. Dont buy things that wont get used; this will save money! 2. Do buy only according your tastes, budget and needs. 3. Look for coupons and sale items to keep in your pantry 4. Use your pantry regularly, checking your inventory to be sure that you are not overstocked. 5. If possible, items such as paper towels, paper plates, napkins, etc. that will not expire or become stale, purchase in larger quantities. The Wrap-Up If possible, try to buy reserve quantities of the staple items that you use the most. This will avoid "out-of-stock" items. Having an extra jar of mayo or some reserve cans of chicken and/or tuna salad can come in very handy with a surprise visit from a friend. Be sure to add these items to your shopping list when you break into your reserves. With kids in the house, you might want to consider making a special area and/or basket where you can keep quick snacks and treats handy. This will help keep the kids out the pantry! Homemade trail mix is a great snack and easy to store!
2. The heaviest of items should go on the lower shelves. Especially if you have a lazy Susan installed. For example, you have a large can of Tomato Sauce, put it on the lowest shelf with the canisters for your baking goods. In the meantime, leave the upper shelves open for those items that you use frequently, and lighter weight items like beans, pasta and/or rice. 3. By using canisters you can keep dry goods and baking items such as: flour and sugar, fresh and bug free. You can keep smaller items, such as tea and coffee, dried fruits and bouillon in small baskets and/or plastic bins, which also helps keep them fresh. 4. Group items that are alike together: breakfast items, snack items, baking goods, cleaning supplies, dish linens, etc. It is important that if you take a bit of time to consider how things are arranged in the grocery store where you typically shop, you can group your pantry items similarly. Using subgroups will help to keep things more neatly stored and easily accessible. For example, all canned goods go on one shelf, organized into subgroups such as: fruits, vegetables, soups, crackers and cookies, etc.
