Dry storage is where we keep anything that is basically non-perishable. Pantries are common dry storage spaces for canned goods, dried herbs and spices, baking supplies, paper goods, bottled drinks, etc. They are also often common spaces for chaos. But a little organization can make your pantry space go a long way.
You’re probably already stacking small packages and canned goods in your pantry. But there are several other ways to make your dry storage space stack up.
- Stackable wire shelves multiply space for canned goods, spices, or baking supplies.
- Canisters give pasta, beans, and grains an airtight, critter-free home.
- Clear plastic boxes prevent small packets or spices from getting lost in a jumble.
When space is sparse it can help to leave a few things hanging, literally. And there are many creative ways to do so.
- Under-shelf baskets provide a ready-made nook for apples, root veggies, and paper or canned goods.
- Over-the-door holders made for office supplies or shoes can easily hold bottled drinks or paper goods in your pantry.
- Wall-mounted holders and racks store spices, small packets, and root veggies.
Sticking together has its benefits, even for your dry storage goods. Baskets, crates, and bins of various designs hold items together, allowing you to remove and explore the whole group without rearranging your entire pantry. Group cereals, baking supplies, paper goods, or canned goods where you can quickly grab exactly what you need.
