  4 Steps to an Organized Pantry © Photo: Pieter Estersohn A kitchen pantry is a blessing for storing extra dishes and linens, bulk ingredients, and those snacks you buy by the case, but it can also be a repository for unnecessary clutter. Boxes of crackers, coffee cups, and that dust-gathering wafflemaker can quickly become a messy jumble to sift through. Now there’s hope. We turned to organizing expert to the stars Justin Klosky, who also penned the book Organize & Create Discipline ($23, Avery), to get his tried-and-true tips for tidying up your pantry and keeping it that way.

Club Soda: <p>Club soda, isn't just a delicious drink, it's also a fantastic stain lifter. Pour it on fabric and blot—don't rub—to lift the stain. Because it's odorless and safe to drink, you won't have to worry about <a href=chemical fumes or leaving it out when kids are around.

In order to keep your kitchen pantry organized , you will need to practice some self control and avoid throwing things in there that don’t belong. Below are 4 easy steps to help you get an organized pantry .

After a big grocery shop, take dry bulk items (think cereal, flour, snacks) out of their original packaging and place them in clearly labeled containers for storage, Klosky recommends. Not only do matching receptacles make shelves look clean and cohesive, but they also help you find what you’re looking for fast—and determine when it’s time to stock up again. Worried about expiration dates? Klosky likes to rip off the box label and, for reference, stick it right in the jar.

Know yourself.

Even though a blender is unwieldy, storing it on the top shelf isn’t a good idea if you like to start every day with a smoothie. Leave that space for once-a-year items, like the turkey roasting pan, and keep frequently used appliances in your sight line, within easy reach, Klosky says.

How Long Does Sugar Last in Your Pantry?

  How Long Does Sugar Last in Your Pantry? I've lived my life under the assumption that all food, even the shelf-stable pantry staples that you buy once and let sit in your cabinet for years, eventually spoils. But that's not always true, especially when it comes to the shelf life of sugar. According to Domino Sugar, "Sugar, properly stored (tightly closed and in a dry place), has an indefinite shelf life." That doesn't seem possible, but it's true, not just some manufacturer's promise.

Follow these six steps to get your pantry shipshape. 1. Purge. Pull everything — yes, everything, even that naughty little stash of plastic grocery bags — out of your pantry . 3. Feel Out the Crowd. If you live alone, you can organize your pantry however you please.

Having an organized pantry is a good idea, because it can save you money, time and space. 1. Empty the pantry . Follow these six easy steps and you will be enjoying your organized pantry in no time!

Embrace every surface.

Klosky suggests covering a wall in chalkboard paint to transform the blank space into a functional spot for writing grocery lists and menu ideas. Now there’s no excuse for forgetting the milk.

Stay disciplined.

Organizing your pantry is one thing, but keeping it that way is quite another. Make sure every item, from your slow cooker to your spice jars, has a designated resting place, and consistently return them to those positions. “It’s a learning curve,” Klosky notes.

The box is a miniature food pantry -- receiving items from those who want to donate, and offering it to those who need them."Whether you're taking or giving, you can just go to the blessing box," Espinoza told CNN.
