Your pantry might have double doors and room to roam around or it might consist of a single cupboard among your kitchen cabinets. However, no matter the size, using streamlined and even stylish storage containers to organize your pantry can make your kitchen seem cleaner and your meal planning more efficient.

With so many types of pantry storage items available, finding the best ones can be overwhelming. To simplify the process of getting your food items in order, we found some of the most clever, tidy and sensible options Amazon has to offer.

1. Hanging Baskets With Chalkboards

Not everything in your pantry needs to be sealed up in lidded containers. For produce such as onions, potatoes and citrus fruits, these three-tiered wire baskets hold an abundance. Each basket has a built-in chalkboard for easy labeling or even use-by dates.


2. Airtight Canisters With Labels

Chances are good your pantry is filled with many different items in a variety of sizes. This seven-piece set of airtight canisters comes in four different sizes from mini to large. The canisters also include reusable labels and a special chalkboard marker.


3. Airtight Coffee Canister

If you’re a coffee-lover, you know the importance of fresh beans or grounds. This canister removes and locks out air, preserving flavor and freshness. The airtight insert is clear so you’ll always know when you’re running low on Joe.

One way to make foods last longer is by vacuum sealing them. These cute and colorful containers make it easy to do so, as each set includes a mini electric pump. The BPA-free materials used in these storage containers are safe for microwaves, dishwashers and refrigerators.
