A few essential rules about pantry organization: Use bins and baskets, store dry goods in clear containers, and group like with like. Now that we have the basics out of the way, here are 10 things you may not have thought of—but absolutely should—when planning and executing a well-ordered pantry:

1. “Like with like” is just one way to organize your pantry.

Yes, it’s true that you should group similar items together—e.g., cooking oils together, nut butters next to one another, spices in the same spot, pastas in one place. But don’t stop there: There are two more ways to subdivide your foods for maximum efficiency. First, consider frequency of use. For instance, place the spices you use most in an easily accessible spot. Second, think about your routines and designate discrete storage areas for them. Some examples: a coffee station, a breakfast foods shelf, a school-lunch section, an exercise fuels bin (stocked with energy bars and sports drinks).

2. You’ll need to institute a “first in, first out” system.

A can dispenser on the bottom shelf ensures that the oldest cans get consumed before the newer ones.

I once belonged to a food co-op and, as a member, had to work a couple hours every month. One of my jobs was to restock the produce aisle, pushing the older vegetables and fruits to the forefront and adding newer produce to the back. This practice encourages shoppers to reach for the older (though still relatively fresh) items first and creates, ultimately, less waste. Follow the same method in your pantry. The items that you may have multiples of (think beverages, onions, cartons of chicken broth, and extra boxes of cereal) should be stored in such a way that the older stuff gets used first.

3. Some foods just aren’t good neighbors.

Many people like to stock up on onions and potatoes in their pantry. If you do the same, make sure they’re not mingling. Onion and garlic can be stored together, but neither should mingle with potatoes; doing so hastens spoiling. Also, be sure to keep flours away from strong-smelling items (like cumin and curry powder) so that they don’t absorb any of the flavors. Same goes for bread; in fact, it’s best to keep breads in a bread box. (For more on this topic, see Think Like a Greengrocer: Rules for Storing Fruits, Vegetables, Dairy, and Meats.)

4. The real reason to decant has nothing to do with aesthetics.

We sure do love pantries lined with shelf after shelf of matching glass storage jars. They’re just so satisfying to look at! So we totally get it when people rush to decant their dry goods into pantry jars for the aesthetics. But the real reason to decant is way more compelling, “and that reason may be lurking in your bag of flour and laying eggs in your cake mix,” writes Annie, who battled a serious infestation of flour beetles because she did not decant. Read her cautionary tale here: Reason No. 138 to Decant Dry Goods (Or, How to Prevent Flour Beetles: A Cautionary Tale). (Also, be sure to read: The Organized Pantry: 8 Rules for Decanting Dried Goods.)

5. It helps to have a big mouth.

I keep my rices in large mason jars. Problem is, I like to use a measuring cup to scoop out the rice, but the jar’s mouth is too narrow for that. Instead, I have to resort to pouring. Think about your preferred method of removing a dry ingredient from a storage container before you decide on the vessel. Will you want to pour the ingredient out? Or will you want to scoop it out with a measuring cup or spoon? If it’s the latter, make sure you source containers with wide mouths. (For some of our favorite pantry jars, see 7 Favorites: Classic Glass Pantry Storage Jars.)

6. You may be labeling your pantry jars wrong.

We’ve read service story after service story extolling the virtues of labeling pantry jars. But we think more important than marking a jar’s contents (after all, who needs a label to tell you that pasta is in the glass jar when it’s clearly visible?) is marking the bought or expiration date. And there’s no need to get fancy with the labels. Our preferred method? Labeling with a marker and washi tape. (For more labeling ideas, see 8 Practical and Artful Ways to Label Spice Jars.)

7. You’ll need a plan for larger food items.

Like to have a variety of breakfast cereals on hand or want to keep your pet’s kibble stored in the pantry? You’ll want to plan a spot that accommodates large-sized items. If you’re redesigning your pantry or building one from scratch, it’s critical that you go over what’s currently in it and make sure that there will be a shelf or two in the new pantry that will be tall enough to fit those oversized items. It’s one of the important lessons learned in Expert Advice: 7 Oft-Neglected Storage Needs to Consider Before Remodeling Your Kitchen.

8. And for non-food stuff, too.

The new It feature to have in a pantry? A counter for small appliances. It’s a trend we’ve been noticing lately (see a great example here), and we’re strong supporters of it. It’s a great way to keep those items—rice cookers, blenders, mixers, etc.—off your countertops. (Bonus points for equipping your pantry with an electrical outlet so that you can even use your small appliances in there.)

9. A well-ordered pantry can mean less work for parents.

If you have small kids, be sure to store healthy snacks on a shelf that they can easily access. When they ask you for a snack, you can simply tell them to check the pantry themselves—a much better alternative than having to go to the pantry, report the contents, repeat it all, and retrieve a snack for them. Side note: keep the sweets and less nutritious snacks on a higher shelf.

10. You’ll never be done organizing your pantry.

Certainly, take a moment after you’ve organized your pantry to admire the results. You can bask in the after-glow for months, in fact. But know that it doesn’t last forever. The key to keeping an organized pantry is to check in a few times a year to assess its contents. Old ingredients need to be tossed. Dust and little spills need to be taken care of. Systems need to be tweaked. These quarterly checkups will mean you may never have to completely make over your pantry again.

5 pantry storage tips for your kitchen

Arrange your kitchen pantry with these five storage tips so you can spend less, waste less, stress less...and have more time around the table.

1. Store on the door. Put snacks and sauce packets front and center with hooks and clips so they don’t get lost. Hang your grocery list on the door to stick to your weekly meal plan. You can even write names (and reminders) on the hook plaques so everyone has their own snack space.

2. Group and go. Use baskets to keep tall bottles like oils and sauces together — and to protect the pantry from spills. Organise baskets by mealtime so you don’t have to hunt for ingredients, or gather “friendly foods” together for anyone with allergies.

3. Pull and pick. See all your cans, spreads, and spices with one glance by installing a pantry drawer. You’ll be able to reach the very back with ease — and avoid silly stacking games. Use drawer inserts or dividers to keep the cans in place.

4. Put a shelf on it. Use shelf inserts to create extra levels for jars and other items with varying heights. A clip-on basket also maximises pantry space, and you can place flatter foods like tortillas and noodle packs underneath it.

5. See through storage. Clear containers show exactly how much you have so you can plan your grocery runs better, avoid overspending, and waste less food. Label each container if you want, and tape on the expiration dates so you will know when it’s time to restock.
