The 16 Items You NEED in Your Pantry or Cupboard

Large Turntable

Every pantry needs the basics. That includes a lazy Susan. This clear large turntable can easily be placed inside a pantry. You can fill it with different snacks, spices, or any other pantry items you might stock up on. The best part is that it rotates. So it’s easily accessible.

Divided Bins

A great way to organize packages is with divided bins. It’s great for stacking items in a neat and tidy way. These containers can easily be moved around and can even be used in the freezer! Bins make it easy to organize tools, food, and other necessities. The clear bins are great for visibility when looking for supplies and specific food items. I included both large and narrow bins for every sized space.

Rattan Cubby Pantry Baskets

Not interested in plastic supplies? No problem. These rattan cubby baskets are versatile. They’re made from rattan, which gives them an organic and luxurious appearance. You can use these baskets to store everything from pantry items to table linens. The handwoven design adds a touch of rustic charm to your kitchen and pantry space.

Small Appliances

A large pantry can prevent kitchen counter clutter. A panty or cupboard can hide away slow cookers, steel toasters, and cake mixers. As much as well all love small kitchen appliances, they take up a lot of counter space. That’s why a pantry can hide them away when they’re not in use. Shop Overstock‘s best-sellers below.

Food Containers

One of the easiest ways to make a cohesive pantry is by using matching food containers. Food containers are great for saving space and can help keep food fresher for longer periods of time. For an even more uniform look, you can add custom labels. Shop the containers below!

Towels & Linens

A pantry isn’t only for storing food and serveware. It’s also a place for storing table-setting accessories and linens. Empty out a shelf for napkins and dish towels. Make sure it’s accessible for daily use and when you’re entertaining guests. Check out my favorite linen napkins and disk towels.

Stock Up On Snacks

Now that you have organized your pantry… it’s time to fill it up with your favorite snacks, ingredients, and other kitchen supplies. I added two of my favorite black-owned food companies. Partake in a delicious cookie company founded by Denise Woodard. The perfectly crispy cookie for anyone with food allergies. And if you’re a lover of pancakes and waffles then discover Vicky Cakes is a delicious savory mix. Cortney created a business that highlights her mom’s delicious pancake and waffle recipes that she made for her family.

Don’t Forget A Step Stool

Everyone loves a pantry. But trying to reach that top shelf isn’t always easy. That’s why it’s essential to have a step stool nearby. Especially, if your top shelf is full of important items. A step stool will give you quick access to all of the items that you need to prepare your next meal.

Another look at Linda’s pantry.

I have so many pictures after touring Linda’s kitchen. I didn’t have enough room in the last blog to show off her beautiful pantry. The area is used for dishes, appliances, platters, and more. All the stuff you don’t reach for every day is now safely stored away in her pantry. If you’re looking for kitchen inspiration, then check out Linda’s before & after kitchen remodel.
