This week we’re looking at how an organized pantry, freezer and stockpile can actually save you money. Before we get down to the nitty-gritty of organizing them, here are a few quick tips for putting your pantry to work for you:

  • If you’re short on space – or trying to make the most out of the space you do have – use one or more lazy susans for your canned goods. They’ll allow you to stack your cans several deep and still be able to easily see and access them.
  • If you don’t have the time or inclination to keep a full pantry inventory, another option is to simply make a list of your most commonly used items. Print out copies and keep it in or near your pantry. Use one each week to track what items you run out of or need more of so that you aren’t trying to rememeber everything at the last minute as you prepare your grocery list.
