In choosing the right shelves for your pantry there are several important factors to consider. First, the amount of space available will often determine what kind of shelving units are appropriate. Free standing pantry shelves will occupy more space than wall-mounted pantry shelving systems, and will also be surprisingly weak in their ability to hold large amounts of weight. Second, as previously mentioned, the amount of weight that will be required to be held will justify which type of pantry shelves to purchase. Wall-mounted systems are often directly attached to wall studs by screws, and are therefore often stronger and less likely to bend. Price, is the final, and most important piece of the puzzle. Wall-mounted pantry shelving systems are cheaper than plastic shelving systems, which are,in turn, cheaper than wooden systems.
Consider moving food items to drawers. More items can be stored in a drawer; label tops for quick identification. Install roll-out pantry drawers for easier access. Because you can see more, you can store more. Reclaim a closet. Reclaim storage between studs of wall. Take out the kitchen soffits to move infrequently used items above kitchen cabinets; make new pantry cabinet space below. Delegate pantry food storage outside of the kitchen: under the living room couch or out in the garage. Tuck pantry food items inside decorative furnishings, like a crock. Think on a smaller scale: consider a mini-version of a walk-in pantry. Take 12" out of hallway width for pantry shelves. Recycle wooden crates from wine, mount to walls as a shelf (can get free from wine stores or superstores).
3. Clean any dust or dirt off of each item as you go. 4. If something has lost its label, but you know for certain what it is, make either a handmade (or digital created) label for easy recognition and mount it to your container. 5. The best part about this process - even if it is time consuming, is that it only has to be done twice a year. Plan to do it in the Spring and Fall. 6. Clean the shelving and walls thoroughly with a solution of warm water and mild soap, drying them with a towel and by letting the shelf surfaces dry thoroughly. Preparation - Pantry Space Once you have removed everything, cleaned and prepared your pantry space, you are ready to start re-organization. This is the fun part.
