  • I know where everything is. First of all put all of the same thing together like soup on in one area, green beans in another, so you don't forget you have green beans and buy some and end up with 45 cans of green beans, put the soonest expiration dates at the front and the later ones at the back. Second, have all the stuff used all the time closest, and the other stuff in higher/had to get to cabinets, I have all my plastic bowls nesting in one another they are all the same gladware same size, so I don't have to search for covers, I have a drawer for the covers.

  • Mine are organized by materials. We have a pantry so all the food is in there. But very little cupboard space in the kitchen. I have a drawer with hand towels and anther drawer with the washclothes and oven mits. Silverware drawer and 2 drawers for cooking utensils. Drawer with bibs, that is on its way out, don't use them any more. And a drawer with my small tupperware containers. My dishes are all together. The kids sippy cups are in a drawer together. Their dishes and bowls are in the drawer above that, so the kids can put them away and get them out on their own.

  • I'm so sick, my are not just organized but labeled tooo! My spices are alphabetical. I don't have that many cabinets so I have a really cool dish hutch, where the dishes are stored vertical between the poles. The lower cabinet is all the plastics. I am lucky in that I have a pantry, with pull out shelves upstairs and another one downstairs by my freezer. There are times when my house looks like it is stocked for the apocalypse.... lol... My downstairs pantry is sorted by like items. My upstairs pantry is sorted by meal! So when I go to cook dinner all the ingredients are there together. Ex: 2 cans of Chili Beans are next to 2 cans of diced tomatoes with a can of chopped green chili too. Grab and go! I always grocery shop in my house before I go to the store!
