Easy Ways to Make the Pantry a More Organized and Functional Space

Have you had one of these moments where you stare at your disorganized pantry, wondering how on earth to find the thing you’re looking for? Don’t worry; everyone has had them. The harsh truth is that many people have problems organizing their cabinets. How to tackle such issues once and for all? By implementing the following hacks to a more organized cabinet, of course.

Dump Old Stuff

One of the easiest ways to make your pantry more efficient is simply dumping old stuff you no longer need. If your cabinet is filled with half-empty cookie boxes that were opened who knows when it’s finally time to dump them. While this process is a major step in the right direction, you should know that you have to manually check the expiry date on everything you have in the storage cabinet. If there are way too many unopened items that are about to expire, you can donate them, so they can help someone in need.

Implement Transparent Storage Solutions

Once you’ve thrown away all unwanted items, it’s time to begin the organization process. A simple thing to facilitate your way to success is adding storage solutions to your pantry. How you utilize transparent containers is entirely up to you. If you have way too many spices, you can organize them in small airtight containers and place them on the top shelf. However, many people choose to ditch manufacturer packaging altogether and put anything they’ve bought in a transparent container before organizing their storage unit. That way, you can save space from bulky boxes.

Utilize Vertical Space in the Pantry

Another hack for a more organized storage space is utilizing vertical space. One thing to invest in is a tiered shelf, which allows you to easily spot cans, spices, and anything else you have in the pantry. Some homeowners also use the cabinet’s door. Keep in mind it’s ideal to keep some of the items you use on a daily basis on the cabinet door.

Integrate Lazy Susans

In case you like using dressings or other bottles regularly, it’s a wonderful idea to add lazy Susans in the pantry. The option saves time digging through the bottles you have in the storage unit. There’s another perk of finding everything with a simple finger spin – you won’t forget dressings at the back of the cabinet.

While these hacks are incredibly simple, they can substantially help anyone eliminate clutter in the pantry. Try one of them and see for yourself.

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, who are collectively known as “the Daniels,” were in charge of Everything Everywhere All at Once. The plot of the movie revolves around a Chinese immigrant named Evelyn, played by Michelle Yeoh, who discovers the ability to jump between different alternate universes. Each universe contains a different version of her life with her husband, Waymond, played by Ke Huy Quan, and her daughter, Joy, played by Stephanie Hsu.

Three Charities Were the Beneficiaries

According to Kwan, the film utilizes the concept of a multiverse to explore the sensation of being alive in the present moment. The experience of feeling inundated with numerous narratives simultaneously while also experiencing emotions such as laughter, tears, confusion, and fear, is examined in the movie.

The items that were available for purchase included Waymond’s chapstick, Evelyn’s hot dog costume, and Raccacoonie, among others. The auction was conducted until March 2nd, and it was divided into three segments. The money raised from the sale was distributed among three charitable organizations.

Everything Everywhere All at Once cannot be easily classified into one genre as it incorporates various elements of science fiction, romance, family drama, and more. The movie is a mix of emotions as it contains moments of humor, absurdity, and heartbreak. Its underlying themes include generational trauma, love, family, acceptance, immigrant experiences, and the commonplace aspects of modern life. Interestingly, a significant portion of the film is set in an IRS office.
