Organizing Baking Supplies and Snacks

This post was written by Rubbermaid employee Katie Abbott.

It was time to switch it up – as in, a cabinet switch.  The cabinet above our fridge houses what I like to call our “odds and ends”: mixing bowls, rarely-used martini glasses, and little dishes I put out for snacks when our friends come over.  The problem is that I access the mixing bowls quite frequently and have to reach up above my head to take them down.  It was frustrating and needed to be changed ASAP.

I have quite the opposite problem in our pantry.  The bottom shelf houses a random assortment of snacks, candy, and baking supplies that are basically at my feet.

I knew if I swapped the contents of these two shelves, my kitchen would be easier to access.  And let’s face it, less accident prone.

Commence the switch up!  I started by emptying the top cabinet.  When re-organizing my house, I have always found it easier to start with a clean slate and lay everything out so you know what you are working with.


Rather than using baggies and boxes to store my baking supplies, I decided to use the new Premium Modular Canisters.  These little gems are super see-through and save space in your cabinets due to their narrow shape.

I also tried out the Large Expanding Helper Shelf, which can expand to make the most of the tight space.  The 10 cup containers fit perfectly underneath the Helper Shelf and the 16 cup sat nicely on top.

After organizing and arranging, this is how it turned out!


What is an organized pantry without some labels?  I loved the shape of these and how the red matched the lids:


The final product…


Now it’s your turn!  How will you use the Premium Modular Canisters to organize your house?
