It's even been a long time since I organized my pantry and kitchen, I rearranged things just a couple of months ago and it's about time I did it again, so here's a situation where my mother-in-law moved in yesterday and took with her half. of the food we buy during quarantine the rest is like here on the counters behind me and my pantry is already pretty full i mean there is plenty of room and the way we buy food now is a little different than when i organized it for the first time. so I think it just needs a little bit of reshuffling and honestly sometimes I feel like you just need to move things around a bit because then it becomes like a new life and you see it better so that's what I'm going to do. today in addition to bringing all this stuff behind me to the pantry these are the goals for today one i'm going to make sure everything fits inside our pantry rearrange the pantry to be more functional three purge everything we don't need or use and then four.

I'm going to do an inventory of what we have, so I have my computer here behind me and we have so much stuff and I didn't want to waste time writing it down. so i'm going to make some lists on my computer probably a google spreadsheet just to keep track of everything we have so we know what we need to use what we have stored because we have some things i want to keep for a while , like some dry goods, because we just don't know when we're going to have to quarantine again, so I don't want to just get rid of it completely, but it may be stored high up, so I want to know if we have it from Anyway, so that's the plan I'm going to give myself.

I think three hours I think that's reasonable that's a long time but it's also a short time for the whole pantry so I think I can do this is what I plan to do one hour I'm going to clean off these counters here behind me and get everything out of the pantry our two I'm going to order to throw out an inventory all of our number three I'm going to put everything back I think that's pretty reasonable I think sorting is going to take me the longest, but I don't think it'll take an hour to get everything out anyway, so that that will balance everything so if you're ready to look at kitchen and pantry

organization

let's get started so I'll tell you right away this pantry organization took a lot more than three hours not on this specific day but on the days then i worked really hard to find the perfect

containers

to decant everything in my pantry and i can't wait to show you that later in the video i recently helped my mother-in-law move in just a couple of days ago and i Let's have your entire pantry organized if you haven't seen that video I'll be sure to link it go check it out it's so inspiring I think I'll start somewhere where you have a completely empty pantry and kitchen and you can just let your vision come to life , so that's what I want to try to recreate today, even though I already have stuff in my pantry.

I'm going to do my best to get everything out and completely empty before I start. putting things back, I really don't know if my accountant is The pace will allow me. I can use my living room couch and my dining room table too, but I'll do my best because I just need to rearrange a few things here and of course inventory, so I wanted to show you my inventory. very quickly, I think this will make things go much faster for me. This is just a small Google spreadsheet that you can see at the top. I have grains, vegetables, soups, sauces, savory and sweet snacks, bake items in others. a lot everything in my pantry and i'll just be able to write what's here type type type and in the small box it's for quantity so if I find a second item I can change it to two or three or four instead of having to type it or Italian my next step here.
I'm going to go ahead and inventory these items because they're all ready to go and then I'm going to start pulling things out of the pantry and inventorying them as I get them out. so i hope that works out so let's get to work so i have o I've only inventoried like seven items so far and i thought it would be fun to guess how many items you think are in my pantry so why don't you if they're in your head or put it in the comments before seeing them? the end of the video how many items do you think i have in my pantry? let's look at one two three four five six seven eight categories and one hundred lines for each category do you think I have eight hundred items or less so we'll see I'll total it at the end because I think it will be almost humbling in a way of saying hey I really need that many items at a time in my pantry so leave your guesses in the comments and then let me get back to what I'm doing I was thirsty that when I first saw you green rice Carmy yeah it was crazy it was a Friday night when you i kissed for the first time it hit me like lightning you broke my chains i was released on the couch in your apartment no i'm not everything after taking inventory of all the food that was out i started to bri Take things out of the pantry a basket to the time.
This was a really good way to review each type of food, one at a time. I checked dates and tossed out food that had been sitting open too long and then took inventory of what was left. another reason why it's really nice to go to the pantry, as you can see all the things you have that you're not eating. I just went through all of our candy and I know that's not something you should force yourself to eat or Anything, but we also love candy and don't want it to go to waste, so I limited things to two baskets.
Basically I bought one full of candy and stuff if you need something sweet quick and then another bigger one. full of more desserts so now we know we don't need to like making cookies with desserts for a while we can be eating these things until we get back to a basket which I think is reasonable this gummy situation is ridiculous guys I know, but I love jelly beans. s and these are like gourmet gummy bears and they're super good so I'm going to start working my way through them like I said. snack I'll add, as you know, 10 to 20 gummy bears in there and start eating those.
I don't want those two little ways because I really like them more later. I'll show you a little trick for open-ended snacks. and things like how you can help yourself to remember to eat them and your family to remember to eat them, so stick with that advice to the end. because I'm going to do something with it a little bit later so I'm going to show you that hack soon but my one hour timer went off and at the end of one hour I was expecting to have an empty pantry and pantry as you can see. that's not the case rather I'm pulling out one category at a time sorting and researching history and then I'll put it aside so by the hour at the end of the hour to two out of three I should have everything out of the pantry and inventoried and he should be able to start to put things in place so hopefully he continues to go down that road and yeah let's get back to it.
I'm so caught up thinking about a travel spell. I am losing cycles. I am falling. I'm so deep. In the background. I feel like we have a ridiculous amount of some of this stuff, that's what happens when you know the pantry is crowded, you can't see what you have, but I have a nearly empty cocoa and wine thing that's not very full, so i am going to combine them but i think i am going to find new

containers

containers for all my baking stuff this is not a necessity by any means but i would love to have containers for just about everything i use regularly even like baking powder baking soda sodium so they can just look at the uniform that's just something I like instead of buying fabric is I like to buy containers for my stuff I don't know so I think that's something I'm going to keep an eye out for here soon and then I can have all my things to bake like beautiful in matching things and i will. get tags for them so hopefully i can make it here even fast enough to show you guys but if not i'll try to put it on instagram and stuff later but anyway mix things up if you can that always helps save some Of space. 't and you can say okay I know my second our timer is about to go off and if you remember I was going to try to get everything out you can see the painter side is pretty much off but let me show you the current situation, so this is what is happening its not too bad as you can see i have a lot of empty containers which of course are going back to the containers but for now i just have them empty so i can figure it out. what i want to do here in the pantry this whole side is empty this was the side that had most of the loose items let's go ahead and deal with the situation in the corner and then we'll start putting things away let me feel it again on the side on mine and going around in circles screaming your name just the two of us and we can stay use other street lights do we want to do what we have to do stamp on it did you know there is a lot of science that goes into where the lights are placed items in the grocery store not only their placement in the aisle but also their actual placement on the eye level shelf is the most coveted spot and brands may even pay a placement fee to put their products there;
You can do the same for yourself and everyone else in your family in your pantry by placing items that need to be eaten right at eye level. so they're noticeable and easy to grab, it also helps me use items if they're easier to reach, that's why I like to take as much out of the box as I can to make it easier to consume, let's end up getting attention. the windows you have to understand d we have a chance one chance yes i decided to make a packaged snack container this is not something we normally have on hand but we ended up with a lot after living with family my hope was that we would have this container would make it easier to grab something to eat when we left the house and help us stop less for food and snacks and you wouldn't know my husband Kent went right into it the other day when we were out for a long walk and grabbed us some granola bars okay here's the time check Alexa how much time is left on my timer okay five minutes and I'm at a good stopping point so let me show you what's been done.
This is the current situation in the pantry. It's not feeling very calm right now because I'm definitely not 100 percent done and then this is what's left in the pan or I'm feeling it out in the kitchen open stuff I'm going to show you what I like to do with it in just a second and then these two guys here I'll tell you what the plan is for those so at least everything is now off the counters and we can get our kitchen back to function and I'll show you how I use all those open-ended snacks that are kind of random how I make sure they eat them.
One way I help myself and my husband remember to eat random snacks and treats is to put them on display. They're only out and easy to see when you need something sweet quick, but they don't take up any more pantry space either, plus it's much easier to throw something away once you've ogled it for a week compared to when it's hidden in the pantry you can even give it an end date eg what is not eaten on garbage day thursday is thrown away as for random snacks i like to make trail mix to use up all those little ones remains ok it's been a few days a week maybe and i finally settled on s some containers i've been going back and forth for a long time because i really like these auxo pops for the way they look and work.
I wanted lids that come off completely to make it easier to get sugar and flour out and just get to things but I've heard and read some reviews that they aren't airtight so we'll find out because I just couldn't find another set that came in sizes enough for what I wanted so as you can see I have four different ones. its the 8th worst piece i will ever bake when i add up everything i wanted like how many small medium and large pans i needed this was the best way to get them for the cheapest price but i will be honest with you this wasnt cheap i think every one of these it's 60% off Bed Bath and Beyond so I used my 20% off coupon to get them all 20% off and then I saved some Christmas gift cards which helped make this more affordable and I have a few others stuff today i'm going to turn the camera around and show you the other stuff i got today i got this at walmart this is anchor hocking brand and thisit was i think 14 bucks this will be for our rice and it has a rubber gasket to make it airtight and then these are the 64 ounce ball mason jars which are i think they are half gallon I already have two.
This is what I keep as oatmeal and this is accelerated. These are the best prices I can find at Target. I think I bought them last year for seven bucks. I swear. but today it was nine bucks and some changed a piece but that was the best price i ever compared on amazon so this is not like i said cheap but its something i really like and i think it will look amazing to have everything decanted and organized now. I've already bought tons of organizational stuff for my pantry for a year or two. Wow, I can't be a member of whatever we're moving to, so this has been kind of a slow investment for me.
It's something I saved. my money because it's worth it to me No I don't like to spend my money on other things but this is what I like to spend my money on so it might be worth it to you but I'm just giving you the real thing like what it really costs and I am excited. I'm going to take everything I want out of the pantry and put it in decanters and place them next to the container. I think they're going in because I want to see if I have everything I need before I start the laundering process I also have decals that come from Amazon I think it was around 16 bucks for a set of a hundred different decals and I went through the description and marked as if I knew all the things I needed oatmeal and I had almost everything, so those will arrive in a couple of days.
I'm going to wash them and I might even put everything in there probably tomorrow because it's almost dinner time today, but I'm so, so excited, oh and I did all of this in order to pick up the Bed Bath & Beyond curbside home, so i pulled over so i was there they took it out target just went to desk and picked it up walmart walmart yes i went in but i knew exactly where my mask was and everything so i'm all set i'm excited to see what this pain is the tree will look like everything is going to look great and i'll probably have to get a couple more things for the cans but hopefully that's before i unpacked everything i wanted to test the airtightness so i filled one of the bins. with water and turned it upside down to see if any water leaked out and it didn't but the instructions on these auxo pop containers are very specific to say don't lift them by the lids ever I think it weakens the seal over time , so I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now by the decision-making here at the pantry.
I'm kind of in a place where I don't want to have so many things in the pantry, but I also don't want to waste anything. that we have and I don't know it's like it's hard because I don't want to have a lot but I also want to be like a wholesale buyer save money so I'm kind of confused what really takes up so much space here is all these random snacks that we have a lot of which they gave us like Christmas, Easter, like candy and all sorts of things, so I can't really tell people not to buy things from us, but I do want to have a designated space where we have random things like that and a little space designated for it and a time limit we have to finish them by a certain time or we can't have them other than our pantry will be full of similar ingredients that's what I'm going to do.
I'll show you where I am so I know it's probably pretty blurry. I don't know why it is like this, maybe there is not enough light here, but I brought my husband and asked if this is okay or is it like this? ridiculous and he said it looks nice he said it looks like The Container Store so the plan is this will be the baking rack that you can see your sugar and stuff behind but like flour sugar brown sugar and then these will be like little candy, cornmeal things and then this will be our snack rack so it will be like snacks open in the front and then you can see there are snacks. behind here but we have a lot more snacks right now and then down here right now we usually have popcorn on hand. possible so that we can have a container that has packaged snacks and another that will be open for random things that's my plan, I don't know, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, so I'm going to take a break and then I come back to this with fresh eyes.
I learned by mistake that it helps to wipe the containers dry so they don't stain, so this is how it all looks outside and it dried overnight. I get very nervous putting things up. away with any kind of moisture in them so ev Then when i unloaded the dishwasher i let the stuff hang out overnight. I flip these over and then if you have the same wines just keep in mind that a lot of water gets trapped in here so I was shaking them out and then flipping them over like this and just trying to get all the moisture out of here how do you store things in your pantry?
Do you like to have things in their original containers or out of them? The doorbell just rang. I thought it might be Amazon with my stickers but unfortunately it was something else but ok I think this is a good time to stop and go to the store to buy our groceries and also the canned packaging that is going to change all that down there , make it really really cool, plus I didn't want to do like I didn't want to put baking soda and baking powder in the containers before I had the labels because I might forget what they are, so I think I'm going to go ahead and go pick up the order and then come back and finish, but that's it.
Look, it looks so good that I'm feeling better than yesterday. I was actually feeling a bit anxious about it. My husband helped me. He said it looked very good. out of the way and then I can have the rest of the day to sort things out and get organized. He wanted to quickly show you the containers that I bought four cans. Of course, I showed them to you in the pantry, since it's a bit difficult to see them here, but they are Inter design or I design. I think it's been renamed to I design, but you can find these products are mostly acrylic containers at Bed Bath and Beyond and you can find them at home too. this one specifically was at Bed Bath and Beyond and I like that it has a lid so I can easily get my hands in here because I can take the lid off but if I want to put more stuff in the pantry we'll see if it fits on the shelf.
I can hide that lid and then I can stack more stuff on top. I also have one of these in the fridge for our sodas and it's great because it's like a designated space for that specific item that I really love so I'm going to put these in the pantry and I think that will make a world of difference. ok now that i have decanted most of it i have seen what size containers i really need so i left one of the sets i ordered unboxed because i thought there was a chance i would have to send it back three sets i did so inside it comes with a size guide and on Bed Bath and Beyond I guess I never went to the actual oXXO or oxo website this is much more helpful because sometimes when you order online you just can't see the sizes because they actually are very small, they're perfect, but I don't want any more that big, so what I'm going to end up doing is returning that sixty dollar set and I'm going to get four more containers that are between these two sizes that are going to be perfect for my sugar brown and some of the other stuff that likes the whole container to not quite fit this will fit in a pound but since I always get more than a pound of stuff so the containers I will get will be about this wide but go to be like half the height so they'll be bigger than this but smaller than this and then they'll be able to stack on top of each other so I'm going to buy four of those for my cornmeal my brown sugar powdered sugar and my chocolate chips basically in the pop up system there are big square tops and then different heights and then some square tops and then I think mini smaller than this and then also two different sizes of rectangular tops so just a FYI yeah is ordering them online to really look through them even though i was measuring it was still hard to compare so once i get it in person see a little easier to see but that's why i was hesitant to open my last box because i thought i might be trading for some di different sizes ok so i have my final order.
I just received four of these, which were about the same price as one of those big packs that I returned or exchanged for this one, so I'm going to put them in the dishwasher and let them dry. and i'll finally be able to finish this tomorrow guess what just got so excited after almost two weeks of pantry organization mostly because of these darn bins i finally get to finish things with my labels i bought them on amazon and i'll be sure to link them below, they were so easy to put on because they were just clear decals my previous decals were vinyl trans and even though they look amazing they were so hard to put on I am totally converted to these decals let me feel sorry i made my own and went around in circles screaming your name take me to a different place just the two of us no one can stay up it's ok after many many days i finally feel peace with where the pantry is and i didn't. forget about inventory i'll have that t number here in just a second but i definitely must have stopped counting at some point because there's no way when you see what's in this pantry but let's go ahead and get in there so first let me give you a tour from the top to the bottom and then we'll zoom in and see everything.
I'm going to try to make it quick because I know this video is getting very long, but that's because I spent a lot of time organizing this pantry. Well, let's start here. at the top we have some appliances that hopefully we'll use quite often the blender and we use the iron a lot and then those are all our fun snacks at the top right there those are some special snacks we just want to keep so we're not going to keep them with the other snacks so we can tell if we have someone home we can tell them to go have whatever they want and then this is obviously going to be pretty easy to miss so we just have oils and stuff in the turntables which makes it really e It's easy to get to and this is kind of a turntable for breakfast here.
I love these jars. I'll have them linked below. We have others, such as things to bake. there i think someone got us that and that's it so we're going to keep them towards the front because they look so nice and pretty we have our bread box which i know takes up a lot of space but that says hey this is where brad goes no put nothing else in here cereal we haven't been eating in a while but we usually make it in our oatmeal now if you come down i love this so much i really like how they look like this in the back we have other duplicate baking supplies and then some stuff packed in there that once we use the packs we probably won't buy that anymore.
I would like to cook from scratch and bake from scratch, so we have it. I know all the usual things. I haven't used powdered sugar in a while, but when I do, I have a space for it. ol how the little spoon can go in the lid the only thing is it takes up a ton of space like you can't fill any further which is kind of silly so you can see in the sugar the spoon is there which which I don't really care about guys I usually wash my hands when I'm baking so it's totally fine and behind the cornmeal we use but not that often this is the last minute change I just made.
I put all these smaller baking supplies in. the turntable even the salt I've decanted I love love love we use the chocolate chips a lot so we have a big one and then in the middle there are duplicates again so we'll probably leave it like that because we're going to need we need lots of salt when we're cooking and then these are my spices they look a little crazy because i have a lot more in the back but this is what i did since last time which i feel is pretty clever I made a list of everything behind it, so when I run out of something here, I can check HERE before I pull it out. take everything out because it is not very easy to see back there going down we have cans of things I have beans cream of soup and things like that tomatoes other vegetables and vegetables this is my t1 I need a drink of this tea so I don't have all this space T more plastic straws once we're done those are our last plastic straws we're just doing sustainable stuff this is our snack side lots of different snacks and then other snacks behind us probably once we eat through those we won't save as many snacks and then more snacks pack snacks popcorn and just a bunch of random stuff oh i wanted to say this i love i love i love the labels they came here. pan slowly, it's actually a blank label.
I didn't know what to write on it with a marker maybe, but I had an Expo, so I wrote on it with the Expo and said, oh, I can change it then. So I thought, can I? Not onlywrite directly on these and so I did so I know this doesn't look as per pretty because I did it on the side but I can write on this an Expo and then I can erase it which I can easily erase because I just wrote on it but it will hold up more over time and then i can use a damp cloth to wipe down here pasta peanut butter honey and then sauce random stuff that's why it's low because we're not going to look at it as much and then pasta and rice ramen and onions always we keep a bunch there are our bags I don't even talk about those of us who keep our rice cooker and crock pot because we use those toasters a lot dog food he deserves a pantry space sodas and soups and then other things I didn't feel belonged al vegetables and then this is our rice thing.
I really like it a lot. It makes him look nice. Now our jumbo 20 pound bag. Our rice or whatever didn't quite fit in there so you can see it's in the back. That's how it is. makes it so much easier ok large total number of items in pantry according to my inventory which can't be correct because it had a hundred and forty six items you guessed right or even close you didn't count spices but everything else Somehow I stopped somewhere I know I had to but 146 items I'm going to use inventory to help me prep some of the weird stuff we won't be buying or replacing that will help us get even more space in our pantry and take it to where I really want it to be, which is just a place that's easy to have ingredients and cook and bake.
I hope you enjoyed this incredibly lengthy pantry organization. I hope I have given you some great

ideas
