The Home Edit’s $25 Secret to a Perfectly Organized Pantry


Teplin: Oh, I do too.

Shearer: But I would go with sweet too and say nutmeg. There’s something so wintery about it. Joanna has a huge sweet tooth. When we made our gingerbread brownies, we were actually able to find a vegan version for her through the app—because she’s kind of a fake vegan—and let me tell you, she ate the entire thing in seconds.

Teplin: I did, I did.

Shearer: I truly am not joking, I looked over at it and I was like, “Did a raccoon get in it here?” Because it was scooped up. I was like, “I just saw it full and now it’s all gone!”

The ultimate tools for organizing a pantry

Shearer: Hands down, our absolute favorite tool would be a turntable. They work so beautifully with spices and all sorts of bottles, oils—all of those kinds of condiments. A turntable is just like magic on a pantry shelf.

Teplin: It is total magic. We’re both obsessed with it. If I had to give a second one: an expandable shelf. It’s so great for organizing the pantry, especially when it comes to spices. We’re a little bit biased, so we do use our own collection. The reason why we created these products is because we know the exact measurements we need and exactly the aesthetic we’re looking for.

A low-budget tip for the kitchen

Shearer: The best thing you can do on zero budget is to strictly edit out unused, expired, old items—things that have just a tiny bit left in it. It’s truly the best tactic you could use for organization, and it costs zero dollars. Before you ever get to organizing products, it’s really so essential.

Our favorite organizing investment piece

Shearer: Honestly, the best thing you can do to organize your pantry, if you want to set aside X amount of dollars and really do it effectively, is to invest in really good, all-purpose bins. Even if you don’t want to go the extra step for the accessories—like the turntable and the shelf and all of those things that are amazing—the bare bones, absolute, you-will-contain-everything, is all-purpose bins. And you can make them into really broad categories. We try not to get overly specific and granular because we don’t want to feel stuck. Instead of the “pasta” bin, we call it the “dinner” bin.

The last things we bought for our homes

Shearer: I got a new knife set with a block by Wüsthof that makes me feel very adult, because it’s so nice and pretty on my counter. I moved into my house in May, and it was very exciting. There’s nothing an organizer loves more than reconfiguring a pantry. I was able to prop it out with all of our products, which was super fun and exciting. The very last touch I added was our collection of floor baskets made from leather and canvas.

Teplin: For me, I added a new turntable. Again, we’re obsessed with it! I added an extra one with all of my favorite teas and honey and stuff. I just like looking at pretty teas.
