  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.

6 Tricks For Faster Meal Prep

  6 Tricks For Faster Meal Prep In an ideal world, we'd all have most of our meals prepped and packed on Sunday night. We'd rest easy knowing that we could grab healthy, tasty options as soon as we walked in the door before the hanger sets in. You'd set a pot of stew to simmer on the stove, and cook a big batch of grains to be transformed into bowls through the week. Vegetables would be roasted, greens washed and prepped, salad dressings made and oatmeal cooked and pre-portioned. It's great in theory, but a real pain in the neck for many (even for the professional cooks among us).

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.

I would wager that you're probably still using that same bag of all-purpose flour that you bought a long time ago, maybe when you first moved into your current home. But it's hard not to wonder as you pull that half-used, fully open bag of flour off the shelf: Does flour go bad? How long does flour last, just sitting there in your pantry? And if all-purpose flour does spoil, how do you know when it's time to replace your stash? Are there any risks to using expired flour? What is the best way to store flour so that it lasts as long as possible? This Week's Circulars require(["c.
