How Often to Clean Out Your Pantry

Ideally, you should clean your pantry at least four times a year as the seasons change. However, twice a year is a good start!

• Take everything out of the pantry.

• Clean the shelves and floor.

• Remove any items that belong in other places and put them where they belong.

• Check the expiration date on each product and decide what stays and what goes.

• Now start organizing. Place items that are used daily within easy reach.

• Group similar items together so you can find them easily. Consider placing all baking items, all canned goods, breakfast items, etc., together.

• Maximize your storage space with shelf risers, over-the-door shelves, turntables, and reusable storage containers. And label 🏷️ everything!
