We love organizing every space, but we have to admit that pantries are definitely our favorite. As canister enthusiasts and turntable advocates, we'll take them in all shapes and sizes.





So when Khloe Kardashian reached out to us this year to organize her pantry, we almost stopped breathing. Between the state of shock we felt and the intensity of our screams, we knew this project would be one for the books (or THE book, for that matter, but unfortunately, it was already hot on the presses, and we weren't able to bribe our editors).





Even if you don't live in a mansion like Khloe's (let's be honest, most of us don't), we're here to assure you that pantry perfection is still within reach. See below for our tips and product recommendations to get this look in your own home:













canisters:









OXO Good Grips 4.5 qt. POP Cereal Dispenser





Khloe's cereal selection was honestly something to behold. To showcase the colorful display, we emptied the cereal from its original packaging and replaced with OXO Good Grips 4.5 qt POP Cereal Dispensers. Not only does it maximize space on a shelf, but it's also the perfect solution for people who buy in bulk because it's easy to refill and keeps fresh longer.









OXO Good Grips 2.4 qt. Square POP Canisters





We transferred Khloe's bulk snacks, baking ingredients, and grains into 2.4 qt. Square POP Canisters to keep them fresh and easily accessible. It was important that we stuck with the same type of storage solution for a streamlined look. Since Khloe's shelves didn't lack height, we were able to stack the canisters and maximize vertical space.









OXO Good Grips 4 qt. Square POP Canisters 









 OXO Good Grips POP 3 qt. Slant Jars





Instead of keeping all of the individually packaged snacks in bins, we chose to highlight them in a 4 qt. Square POP Canisters and OXO Good Grips POP 3 qt. Slant Jars. They offer the same grab-and-go accessibility but without sacrificing serving size for kids (and parents who can't stop eating handfuls of cheddar bunnies).





turntables:





Turntables are a staple of ours and we use them in almost every space in a home. In a pantry, they help reach items on a higher shelf or corners that need more accessibility.









InterDesign Clear Linus Divided Lazy Susan





For Khloe, we used the InterDesign Clear Linus Divided Lazy Susan to store her most-used syrups, oils, condiments, spreads, and even some disposable cups.









InterDesign Linus 2-Tier Lazy Susan





To take advantage of vertical space, we used the InterDesign Linus 2-Tier Lazy Susan for items like frosting that Khloe doesn't need to access regularly. The best part about the turntable design is that when she needs an item on the top shelf, it will be easier for her to see what's available.













bins:





Acrylic bins are another pantry staple. They help contain grouped items, keep the contents visible, and can be pulled out like drawers. This is especially beneficial for people with deeper shelves so items don't get pushed toward the back and forgotten.









Linus Deep Drawer Bins 8"





We used the Linus Deep Drawer Bins 8" for boxed items like cake mixes, instant rice, and various pasta, as well as for items that aren't bought in bulk or don't need to be accessed regularly.









Linus Deep Drawer Bins 6"





For Khloe’s oats and waffle mixes, we used the Linus Deep Drawer Bins 6" and placed them on the shelf below cereal to keep breakfast items in the same zone.









Linus Deep Drawer Bins 4"





Due to the dimensions, the Linus Deep Drawer Bins 4" is great for storing canned goods. We utilized them for Khloe's jams, honey, and sweeteners.













baskets:





We love using baskets in a pantry because they are easy to maintain and provide a stylized aesthetic to the space.









Whitewashed Rattan Storage Bins with Handles





We chose the Whitewashed Rattan Storage Bins with Handles because they meshed perfectly with the acrylic bins and white lids. These baskets are also extremely sturdy and have double-sided handles, so it's easy to remove and replace them on the shelves. In Khloe's pantry, we used the baskets to store everything from snacks and jars of pickles to tea and backstock items.









For the finishing touch, we used Bin Clip Label Holders in Silver to identify each of the categories, which is the secret to long-term maintenance. You're less likely to throw an item in the wrong bin if the category is right in front of you. For canisters, turntables, and acrylic bins, we suggest labeling with an oil-based paint pen—or stay tuned because we'll be offering custom vinyl labels in our signature font on THE site within the next few weeks!

Tip #1: Simplify Your Self-Care

It can be tough to prioritize self-care when you are so busy taking care of everything and everyone else—but that’s when it’s more crucial than ever! *cue flight attendant speech about putting your oxygen mask on before helping others* 

Sleep, stress, and immune health are connected systems—if one is off, so are the rest! Being able to streamline your solutions, rather than focusing on them separately, simplifies a routine. The new Nature Made Wellblends are our favorite because these supplements are targeted to balance our sleep, stress & immune health needs.

They come in capsule form, gummies, (that just so happen to taste amazing!), and fizzy drink mixes, which we can throw in our purses and take on the go! 

Tip #2: Designate a Drop Spot

Let us guess: Your kids get home from school and instantly drop all their things in a pile by the front door? Meet them in the middle with a drop spot system! This may include shoes, backpacks, lunch boxes, jackets, and after-school activity items like ballet shoes or soccer cleats—but every family is different. These items can be hung or stored in an open bin, what matters is that your kids can access them when necessary. Not only will this system leave clutter at the door and hold everyone accountable for their space, but you’ll be able to quickly grab whatever you need when rushing out the door.

Tip #3: Create a Command Station

Every home needs a system for managing all the incoming and outgoing paper…or else it will quickly pile up on the countertop and stress you out. When creating your system, think in three general categories: To-Do, File, and Recycle. As a reminder for tasks at hand, To-Do papers need to remain organized but visually accessible in open trays or letter sorters. Files can either be stored in hanging file or document boxes, labeled by category, color, or both.

BONUS TIP: Designate a paper tray in clear view where your kids can place all the papers you need to sign or look over.

Tip #4: Prepare For Last-Minute Emergencies

It never fails – the moment you are about to walk out the door is also when your kid decides to confess they forgot to brush their teeth...or maybe it was a truly chaotic morning and you realize you forgot to brush yours. Oops! That’s why it’s better to keep a crisis-management kit right by the door for all your *oh no’s!* and *mommy, I forgot’s*.

Think back to your past experiences and decide what will come in handy. Some suggestions include toothpaste, toothbrushes, flossers, hairbrushes, hair ties, you name it. We suggest using stackable drawers, along with bin organizers to keep everything contained and categorized.

Tip #5: Set Up a Supply Station

For most people, the kitchen table is the homework headquarters. But instead of lugging supplies back and forth on a daily basis, store on a rolling cart! Not only does this system on wheels save space, but it also manages clutter for less distractions! Categorize and contain using bins or turntables just as you would on a closet shelf.
