"Any place you store room-temperature food in your kitchen is a pantry, whether it is one separate space or several cupboards," says Bette Sember, author of The Organized Kitchen. "It’s a tough area to keep neat, because the contents are constantly changing as you use them and buy new things. It’s also challenging because of the different sizes of the items."

Having an organised pantry is important as it will make cooking simpler and easier. You'll also easily figure out what to buy come grocery day. "The pantry is one spot in the kitchen that can get out of control, with boxes and cans tipping over and the one thing you desperately need hiding in the far corners. Taking charge of your pantry means not only sorting and separating, but staying on top of things so chaos can’t take over again," adds Sember.

Here are different storage techniques you can use to organise your pantry:

1. Use clear canisters. Store boxes take a lot of space, so opt for stackable clear canisters to stash your grains, pasta noodles, snacks, and condiments.

2. Maximise vertical space. Mount a pantry shelf or cabinet on vertical spaces, including the space behind the door of your kitchen cabinets.

3. Add undershelf baskets. Another way to max out your vertical storage is by installing undershelf baskets or drawers inside cabinets.

6. Have it customised. Get your contractor to build a space-savvy island with lots of pantry storage or have a pull-out pantry built next to the refrigerator.
