Five Ways to Improve the Organization of Your Pantry

A pantry is a great way to store food and other kitchen items within the kitchen but out of your cabinets. Since pantries come in many sizes, that leaves an endless variety of options on how you can best organize the pantry for your household. In a disorganized pantry, it is easy to lose things in the pantry but with some basic organization, you can keep that from happening.

  1. Start by cleaning out items you don’t use or have expired. There is no reason to organize items that you will never use so start with this step. Moving forward, it’s a good idea to periodically clean out the pantry to toss items that you purchased but never got used for whatever reason. I would recommend during in January and sometime over the summer.
  2. Group items by the frequency you use them. There is no reason to have the rarely used karo syrup stored in the most accessible location.
  3. It’s also a good idea to group items by size. Storing a small container of spices next to a family size box of cereal will waste space in your pantry plus confuse everyone.
  4. Purchase bins and storage containers. There are lots of places to buy them, but dollar stores offer a lot of options in a variety of shapes and sizes. These can be great for small items like granola bars and other snacks, canned goods and baking essentials like chocolate chips and nuts. Some items just don’t stack well, and this will keep your pantry looking neat and help you find something quickly when you are looking for it.
  5. Don’t forget the door of your pantry. Some doors may not offer great options but many of them will allow you to add shelves that can provide additional storage for canned goods, spices and other items.

Even the best organization won’t last if you never take the time to put anything away. At a minimum of once a day, take a quick look at the pantry and make sure everything is in its place. With multiple hands in the pantry, things can get moved but a daily check will keep everything where you want it and save you time in the long run.

If you have any additional questions about updating or organizing your home, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, help you to find your dream home and/or determine the value of your existing property.

The Benefits of Virtual Home Staging

Virtual home staging has greatly increased in popularity in recent years. The benefits of home staging are significant and can help homes sell faster and for more money. With traditional staging, a home staging expert or interior designer will make design updates to a home to help buyers visualize the greatest potential. Home staging can be costly in some cases depending on if furniture needs to be rented if the home is empty, how long staging is needed for and the location you live in. With virtual home staging, a photographer can add the same staging elements to a photo that a stager would add to the home, so the photos are more appealing. With virtual home staging, what are the benefits?

A picture is worth a thousand words is a very popular saying and with virtual home staging, a poor photo can become superior. When homes are empty, cluttered or have dated furniture, visual enhancements can improve that. In some cases, a home may be so full of furniture, you can’t see the home itself. Virtual staging can remove the furnishings and clutter so you actually see the home that you would purchase.

Another great use for virtual staging is to update dated furnishings so the home looks fresh and modern. Dated furnishings and those in poor condition can give buyers a negative perception of a home and that is the last thing you want. Another use for virtual staging is to change the use of a room. A homeowner may have not wanted a dining room and be using it as an office or playroom. Use virtual staging to show additional options for the space other than its current use.

Virtual home staging takes less time and resources to complete than traditional home staging so you will not spend as much money to help the home look its best. With the popularity of internet home searches at an all time high, staging photos virtually will allow many prospective buyers to see the best photos of your home so they aren’t turned off by original images that make your home look less than appealing.

Virtual staging has risen in popularity in recent years and is still climbing. With buyers visiting fewer homes in person before making an offer, virtual staging can help your home put its best foot forward and allow potential buyers to better envision themselves in your home. If you have any additional questions or concerns about selling your home, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, help you to find your dream home and/or determine the value of your existing property.
