How to Fix Pantry Problems
Solution 1: Manage Drips and Spills
Put sticky or spillable products―such as oil, honey, cookie decorations, and baking powder―on a lazy Susan, which can contain messes. And because it can be taken out, it’s easier to clean than a cupboard shelf. “Lazy Susans are also a good solution because everything is viewable and you can fit a lot in a small space,” says Jeannie Triezenberg, a professional organizer and the owner of Hire Order, in Naperville, Illinois.

Solution 2: Contain the Clutter
To keep kids’ snacks, like juice boxes and Fruit Roll-Ups, together, put them all in a sturdy see-through basket. This makes it easier for your kids to grab the snacks you’ve approved, Triezenberg says.
