How To Guide

Many of you wonder, where do we even start?

So many people desire to have an organised space, but find the task too daunting and have no idea where to begin.

We want to make this easy and enjoyable for you, so that you can also have an organised and pretty pantry to fill you with joy every time you step into the kitchen.

Find out how to achieve this by reading the below and feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

Step One:

Wash all new containers in warm soapy water before drying them with a microfibre cloth.  Ensure they are dried completely before filling them up.

Step Two:

Remove all items from the pantry or cupboards, and place the items into different categories.  This will make it easier for you to decide which containers/baskets to use. 

Some examples of categories to sort items into are below:

  • Meals
  • Baking
  • Snacks
  • Sauces
  • Drinks
  • Treat
  • Herbs and Spices
  • Cans
  • Check expiry dates and discard of any products that are no longer required.

    Step Three:

    Take the opportunity to clean and wipe down any cupboard or pantry surfaces while they are empty.

    Step Four:

    Categorise and sort out which items you would prefer to decant into your new containers.  Different sizes will be best suited for different uses. 

    Below are some suggestions for what can fit in each of our different sized containers to give you some ideas:

    • Salt
    • Sweets
    • Cocoa
    • Baking Powder
    • Baking Soda
    • Dried Fruit
    • Tea 
    • Coffee


    • Breadcrumbs
    • Rice
    • Oats
    • Biscuits
    • Brown Sugar
    • Caster Sugar
    • Cornflour
    • Coconut


    • Cereal
    • Pasta
    • Flour
    • Spaghetti (Glass container only)
    • Icing Sugar
    • Crackers
    • Ice Cream Cones
    • White Sugar


    • Cans
    • Meal Bases
    • Spices
    • Chips
    • Lunchbox Foods
    • Potatoes
    • Onions & Garlic
    • Treats & Snacks


    • Breakfast Spreads
    • Oils & Seasonings
    • Sauces


    Everything Tub:

    • Backstock (this is any additional products that you were unable to fit in the containers)
    • Sauces
    • Pet Food

    Step Five:

    Once you have decided which size containers you would like to use, decant and label straight away.  We recommend placing the labels higher at the top half of the containers, so that labels are still visible if other containers are placed in front.  If using our labels, please refer to the instructions that came with the labels as to how to adhere them.


    Step Six:

    Place items back into your pantry or cupboards, sorting them by category if possible.  To maximise space, the different sizing of the containers allows you to stagger them and have taller items at the back and other sizes tiered in front.

    The key to an organised, easy to use space is to group items into their categories as much as possible, with the most used items decanted and visible at the front.  Baskets are an amazing tool to use to combine items that are either not easily decanted, too large to be decanted or not commonly used as they make the space tidy but remain user friendly.

    The key to a pretty pantry or cupboard is to have minimal packaging and uniformed containers and baskets.  Labelling not only makes the space practical but also ensures great aesthetics!

    Step Seven:

    Stand back and appreciate the look of your new pantry or cupboards, and all your hard work!!

    Don't forget - any containers no longer required, that are still in good condition, would be greatly received by local charities in your area!
