Smaller pantries can be extra tricky. Can you relate?
Typically they are a long narrow space where items can easily get lost.
Be selective about what you keep. Once that’s been decided you want EVERY item to be visible. If you can see it, you will use it.
Don’t be afraid to cover every inch of vertical space. Stacking bins are awesome for this.
If the shelf height doesn’t allow for stacking, use a single bin with taller items.
The biggest trick with with a smaller space is to use all of the vertical space that you have. Typically smaller pantries are tall but skinny, however they usaually allow a good amount of space in between each shelf.
When I was planning out this space I knew that it was important that I utilize each inch of it. I also knew that putting things in corners just to fill up space would be a big mistake. I wanted the space to simply focus on what you can see in front of you.
When I started shopping for product, of course I looked at typical pantry product I’ve used in the past but nothing seemed right. Once I saw these stackers, I knew that combining the stackers with snacks would definitely work because a lot of pantries have multiple snack options but they’re not always easily seen. Sure I love using turntables (love) for snacks but in a smaller pantry a turntable that’s 12 inches in diameter takes up a lot of space so we have to go back to the drawing board and find something that fits with in the space that allows us to use the height. At the same time, keeping things separated. These were the perfect option. You know it’s funny because whenever I see a product and I see the pictures on it I think yeah that’s a good use of that product but I also try to think how else can I use that product.
I love a challenge. Every space brings it own and that’s part of the fun!
If possible, try to avoid filling in the corners (that’s where old snacks go to die/expire!)
Now who needs stackable bins in their pantry? 🙋♀️
