Our organized kitchen pantry closet is finally done! We had a lonely random skinny closet near our kitchen that was used for storing pots, dishes, dog food and whatever random kitchen items happened to land there.
Today I am finally sharing our new organized kitchen pantry closet.
I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but I knew it would be organized! It’s gotten a thumbs up from everyone in the house including my dad who thought my idea was a waste of time.
Update: This kitchen pantry is at my old house and I recently updated it to add new shopping product links for 2021. If you missed our old kitchen and the crazy huge renovation we did by tearing down walls and adding 300 additional square feet, you can see that kitchen reveal post here. I miss those gorgeous white kitchen cabinets and super white quartzite counters!
Much better than the before right?
The food was always kept in this kitchen cabinet and it was always a mess.

I did make an investment in plastic food storage containers (I love these cereal containers here from Amazon – I picked the red containers) which honestly, has made a world of difference in keeping this pantry closet organized.
The lazy susan above works out perfectly for our baking sprinkles and toppings. They were always buried under piles of food or tipped over in the back of the cabinet.
I added a simple Closetmaid over the door rack to hold smaller plastic containers which worked out perfectly for granola, breakfast bars and other smaller food items.
The plastic storage food bins on the door rack are perfect for granola bars, puddings, nuts and any small snack items.
I love that they come in a variety of sizes too.
It’s amazing how food storage containers can change a pantry in minutes for the better!
Here is another before shot of the closet.
Our new kitchen pantry now stores our snacks, baking items, cereal and dog food.
I may end up moving the tall dog food container on wheels to another spot but for now, this is the only place it fits.
These airtight food storage containers are the perfect size for baking products, candy or cookies that you want to remove from the packaging.
A fun before and after for sure!

We created a DIY Kitchen Closet Pantry in a small closet off their kitchen. What a major transformation for under $100.
I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this little organized kitchen pantry closet makes me. It is wonderful to open the door and see everything in its place even after it’s been raided by multiple people.
Food storage bins and baskets are an easy way to organize a cabinet or closet and these guys are working hard at doing just that.
