The Easy Way To Keep Your Pantry Organization On Track
If you often turn your pantry into a mess by rummaging around for foods you may or may not have, try using a chalkboard or dry-erase board to keep inventory and maintain order.
Use the board to note what foods you’re running out of and what you still have. You'll avoid over-purchasing, and knowing which items you have on hand makes meal planning easier.
Install your board in an easily accessible location inside or just outside your pantry. For something less permanent, try chalkboard contact paper.
Try grouping items by category as you organize them and write them down, and note which areas you've stored them in. Update the list every week to keep your pantry organized.
