Inside a Professionally Organized Holiday Pantry

Pantry Crashers So I mentioned last month that I am part of a new video series called Pantry Crashers!  I am doing this with my friend and fellow blogger Jennifer Dempsey of  (to hear how this idea began go here).

This week on Pantry Crashers we crashed my own pantry! (Well, not really we just visited my pantry…after all I knew we were coming).  Jennifer and I went shelf by shelf through my pantry and I discussed my favorite organizing tips for the pantry including my favorite tips for preparing your pantry for the holiday season.

Watch the video to see how I organize my pantry, as a professional organizer, and all of my secret organizing tips.  


 Organizing Tip of the Day

In this video I discuss the following organizing tips for your pantry:

Tip #1:

Store small items like cans and condiments at eye level.

Tip #2:

Eliminate extra open boxes by having an area that is off-limits.

Tip #3:

Use clear storage containers.

Tip #4:

Use baskets to place ingredients in for different meals that you can plan ahead of time.

Tip #5:

Stock a low shelf or basket with snacks the kids can help themselves to.

Tip #6:

Designate one spot for items you can make quickly if guests pop in: peanuts, dips, snacks etc.

Tip #7:

Stock up on holiday plates and napkins at after Christmas sales to use next year. If you would like to see how to make Roasted Garlic Puffed Pastry go to the second part of this video.

    Great tips! I would love to see you two crash a *small* pantry! Obviously many of the same tips would apply, but I’d be interested to see what you’d keep in the pantry and what you might opt to move elsewhere.
