DOLLAR TREE PANTRY ORGANIZATION | EXTREME CLEAN & ORGANIZE W/ ME 2020 | PANTRY MAKEOVER
hey friends today I'm going to be doing a complete

pantry

makeover

if you need the motivation to

organize

your

pantry

this video is going to give you all of the motivation you need and I'm also going to go step by step and I'm going to make it so easy for you to go right now and

organize

your

pantry

on a budget I did this entire project for super cheap and you have to see the dramatic transformation it was unbelievable hey guys this is my sister-in-law Tiffany hey there so I just came over I brought Avery and we are going to be tackling her

pantry

her and her husband and her daughter they just moved into a new house and she has requested me to come in and

organize

the clutter and do it all in her

pantry

so I'm really excited we've already done all of the pre work we went shopping kind of figured out what we need to get so that's what we're gonna be doing today so again this is what we are working with they just moved in so things are a little messy and I told her I would come in and take care of it so like I said we already did all of the pre work we went shopping this is everything I already what shopping for so mainly everything is from the

Dollar

Tree

a few things from Walmart and one thing from Amazon but it's all super cheap and if you guys stick around after I deep

clean

declutter and get everything out I'm going to be removing everything from here and then

clean

ing it and then when I start organizing it organizing everything...

I'll show you how I do it the steps and how I do all of that if you're wondering where should I start my

pantry

is a mess I don't know even where where to begin where to start I'm going to give you super simple easy steps on how to get started and

organize

your

pantry

on a budget because I did all of this assuming it all goes like I plan for about $50 so super cheap steps are super easy so I'm going to make it easy for you I'm going to show you how to get your

pantry

clean

and

organize

d thank you so here in a minute I'm going to go into more detail about all of the pre work that I did before but on this actual day I first went in and

clean

ed everything out so you want to go in when you're organizing your

pantry

to first remove everything from the area so you can go through everything individually and get rid of anything that is old or expired and also give everything a really good deep

clean

in your

pantry

because you are likely not going to be going in there and removing everything for quite some time so make sure you give it a good deep

clean

also think it's key to get rid of a lot of boxes in containers because those just take up so much space in your

pantry

obviously with their

pantry

space is not an issue but for my personal

pantry

it's a lot smaller and you may have a smaller

pantry

you want to get rid of boxes and containers it will save you so much space I'll show you what I do because my

pantry

is much smaller and we have...
dollar tree pantry organization extreme clean organize w me 2020 pantry makeover
a shoe rack on our

pantry

door and that allows us to use get rid of a lot of boxes and also utilize space that would otherwise be empty so it just makes her

pantry

a lot bigger the one it really is I know it looks like a huge huge mess and I started to get a little bit nervous when I saw everything out here and I was just hoping that my vision would come together and let me just give you a little spoiler alert it turned out perfectly and I was so so so happy with the amazing transformation and even better I did it all for a really good price okay so before I even showed up at her house what I had my sister-in-law do was kind of take inventory of her

pantry

you know this helps you go shopping know what you need know how much of what you need you know I didn't want to waste my time and not have enough storage containers or have too many so this is gonna be different for everybody and it depends on what your family keeps in your

pantry

so I had her go through and group things that were alike so stuff for their toddler I had her group baking stuff I had her group chips besides like macaroni and cheese and rice cans cookies and other sweets so you basically want a group all things alike and then that way you know what type of containers you'll need for what you have and then I decided what type of storage containers she would need based on the specific foods and the groups that she had for example they had a lot of cereals so I wanted to make for sure I got cereal...
dollar tree pantry organization extreme clean organize w me 2020 pantry makeover
containers if you don't eat cereal you don't have it around you're not gonna need cereal containers I got a number of baskets for everything so you want to take inventory of what you have and then group those things ultimately that way when you go shopping you know exactly what you're looking for you can reduce the time spent shopping you're in and out I first went to the

Dollar

Tree

and because it's the cheapest store possible and got what I needed and if I couldn't find something or if I wanted something different for what she had in there then I went to Walmart and then I went to Amazon but the shopping part was the easiest and quickest and I didn't have anything left over and so there wasn't any waste I didn't have to make any returns and I had the perfect amount of stuff when I was actually doing the

organization

okay so after had my sister-in-law take all of the stuff in their

pantry

and kind of group it together then I went shopping so the goal first is to go to the

Dollar

Tree

because we're trying to keep this on a budget the

Dollar

Tree

has a lot of good things I went there first got as much as I could so I got these baskets these are amazing but I'm gonna tell you that they are not easy to find at all so luckily we have a lot of

dollar

tree

s within the city that I live in so I was able to get what I needed but they have have them in a lot of different colors but we wanted the white ones so I got these I also got some...
of these they're called Locker baskets for these if you watch my channel you know I have a ton of those all over my house I also got these jars I thought they were pretty cute they had a lot of different jars that you could use for

organization

at the

Dollar

Tree

so I just got two of these and then I got this from Amazon I've had it for a while I'll try to find it and link it below some chalk labels you could also get these from the

Dollar

Tree

but I got these from Amazon and I got a lot in there um I got these from the

Dollar

Tree

I got these from the

Dollar

Tree

they come with those lids those baskets from the

Dollar

Tree

the only things I got from Walmart so I went to the

Dollar

Tree

and then when I when they had what I needed specific things that I knew I couldn't find at the

Dollar

Tree

and they weren't big enough I got these canisters from Walmart and I believe they were like 247 up geez so super cheap and then the other thing I needed was cereal containers and I got these from Amazon I got four four I think they were $24 so by far the most expensive thing was from Amazon but Walmart also had these cereal containers and they were cheaper Amazon so I kind of price matched everything so it's just nice to go through figure out what you have what you need and what sizes like okay so these are you know similar the stuff that I knew would fit in here I got here but then there were some things that I knew these were too small for so I went with these...
and these are a little bit more airtight they're screw top and even though these you know snap on really good I don't think they're as airtight as something like this or this so I think depending on what you're using it for you know you can kind of decide but it's like I'm not gonna put cereal in something like this because I don't think it will keep us fresh and I don't want the stuff to go stale it's gonna be wasting money so yes group everything together know what size you need know what size your

pantry

is and then go shopping

Dollar

Tree

Walmart and then Amazon and Walmart is nice because pretty much anything you can find in store you can find online so you can get an idea of what you need before you even go in the store and then while we had everything grouped together in the kitchen I kind of put all of the storage containers in their

pantry

I wanted to figure out how they would all sit into the

pantry

I had my idea of how it would go but I wanted to see it visually before I actually put everything in the containers keep in mind that when you're doing this things that we she used a lot I wanted to be more on I level and maybe things she didn't use on a daily basis could go up higher or lower and then once we had everything in the

pantry

I got to putting the actual food into the proper containers so again if you're doing this you want to keep in mind things like cereal if cereal is going to go stale you you want to make...
for sure you get a good container so although organizing on a budget is always ideal sometimes you need to get really good containers for whatever you have so I spent some more money and got really good cereal containers because I didn't want their cereal to go stale these containers from the

Dollar

Tree

do they do closed and they don't expose air to whatever is in those into the container but it's not airtight so I put things like rice and noodles in there because I knew they would be okay in the

Dollar

Tree

containers in the past I have tried to go super cheap and get everything from the

Dollar

Tree

and it just wasn't sustainable and not something that really worked for a long-term so keep that in mind as well I thought these glass containers would be perfect for things like goldfish crackers and baby oatmeal because it's nice to know when you're getting low on this type of stuff I know personally being a mom I like to know when some of my kids stuff is getting low so I can always make for sure I have that stuff on hand because there are some things we know we don't want to run out of so I thought putting goldfish crackers in the oatmeal in these clear jars was perfect and then with these pouches and granola bars I thought they would be perfectly lined up like this because there again when their daughter is old enough she can just go into the

pantry

and get things like this for snacks okay so I know it looks like a jumbled mess but I feel like...
it's

organize

d chaos so what I did was now that we have everything kind of placed in the

pantry

I went back and I

organize

d everything I know it doesn't really look like they're separated but I did so you have let's see this would be the baby stuff we have some baking stuff bread tortilla shells crackers extra rice like macaroni and cheese stuff some candy that they have so I kind of grouped everything and then then I'm gonna go in and place them in all of the bins separately it's also really nice to go shopping and have a number in mind of baskets and storage containers that you need because there isn't any waste and it just gives you a plan when you're going shopping it makes shopping at least for me a lot quicker I just popped in to the

Dollar

Tree

and was in and out in about ten minutes because I knew exactly what I needed and I knew how much of everything that I needed same thing with Walmart and then I obviously just ordered everything offline from Amazon I think labeling everything is super super important with sustaining your

organization

projects I know personally having kids and a husband they may not be as disciplined when it comes to

organization

so I know that if things are labeled then my husband and oldest daughter are much more likely to put things where they go because everything is labeled and I had meant to use the chalk labels that I got off of Amazon but I just didn't like my handwriting I don't have the best...
handwriting so I wanted to use my label mate maker and it actually turned out really well because I took the labels from my label maker and put them on the chalk labels and it just kind of popped a little bit better on the white basket okay here is the finished product okay so we don't have all of their other stuff my sister-in-law is going through all of those little appliances and other things that she had in here now obviously there's plenty of room to put that stuff but she is decluttering going through things seeing which things she can get rid of and we will only put the essentials back in here but I'll go through and show you everything so this is our cereal and pancake mix again I got these from Amazon they are airtight and the reason why I wanted to make for sure we got these is because it's just easier to be able to pour cereal and that's what you do you're pouring it same thing with pancake mix it's just nice we do have a scoop in there but it's just easy to be able to pour it from those so that is something I didn't want to skimp on the Walmart ones that I was thinking about getting that have the airtight containers did not have the little top to open and I thought that was important for Cyril and pancake mix so these little buckets up here are from the

Dollar

Tree

and this is kind of miscellaneous when we put all that random stuff she can use that kind of for storage here we have crackers and chips again these are all from...
the

Dollar

Tree

I got these off of Amazon I'll link down below and then I use my label maker to put those on there at first I was going to write but I don't have very good handwriting I didn't like how it looked and then with the label maker I just felt like the white didn't pop off of the white bins as well so I just put these on the chalk labels mm-hm over here we have sugar and powdered sugar we need to get another one for her flour over here because she has a one year old we have her special baby oatmeal goldfish which this is super nice I need to get this for my

pantry

because our goldfish always goes bad even when we clip it so I thought this was perfect we have baby granola bars extra granola bars fruit and vegetable pouches and then all of the other baby foods and snacks race the noodles breads we also threw in like the potatoes and tortilla shells you know all that kind of stuff oh shoot I should have put the tortilla shells not that you just use them for tacos but guess they use those for wraps as well but they eat tacos a lot I mean don't we all so I made them a little taco bin taco taco basket over here this was from the

Dollar

Tree

these were from the

Dollar

Tree

noodles different types of noodles rice and then this is their oatmeal now these aren't as mean they're they're on there pretty well and I know that airs not getting in there but I don't like I wouldn't use these to put cereal or something that could go stale if...
that makes sense so I mean I don't think they're airtight if that makes sense but so I thought it would be perfect for a rice noodles and oatmeal their cans I was going to get something to

organize

their cans but honestly I just felt like I was kind of like wasting money to get something just for the cans and we didn't she didn't want to use a basket for it because she wanted to be able to see what they have and so since they have all of this room I mean not everyone has a

pantry

nice and big like this they have the room so it's like I'm not I wasn't gonna get a key an

organize

r and spend the money when it looks nice like this and they can see everything that they have and then down here oh I still have to label their paper products paper products baking that baskets empty over there so they have that kind of as extras and then down here we have paper towels bottle oh this is the

pantry

I'm gonna add everything else to it and I'll show you what the final final product is but I'm really happy with how all of this turned out and I think it looks really nice anything it'll be sustainable because everything is labeled so when they go to the grocery store and that's the other thing is you want to have places for everything so when you go to the grocery instead of you know you're in a rush instead of just throwing everything in here you know exactly where to put it in the basket or where to line it up think that is the key to...
keeping things

organize

d as having a home knowing where it goes and yeah I think this is going to work for them all right and here is the finished product with a lot more room to put things so they added some appliances up here they don't use very often crackpot and instant pot yeah everything else we were able to replace to put somewhere else get rid of donate all of that so they have a lot more room to work with and a lot more storage space than they had before and they still have these that are empty that she has some little things that she's gonna throw in there but yeah this is the final product so this is it it's been a day full of

clean
