I know I am not the only one who can appreciate a beautiful pantry. But often times, those perfect pantry spaces have organizational options that can break the bank. I figured that I would check out one of my favorite stores, Target, to look for affordable pantry organizational solutions to give you that amazing look for less.
Below are the Top 20 Pantry Products under $20 available at Target right now. I have also included some additional options for each item to fit your aesthetic. Enjoy!
For anyone that has children, snack pouches can be a convenient snack for on the go. However, storage can be a challenge because of the pouches can easily fall over in pantries creating a mess. I love the clear design and height of these organizers which allow for easy grabbing. Below are some other options that would also work well for this type of storage.
Storing smaller items in a pantry can be a challenge. Ideally, a canister for snacks should be airtight to keep items fresh and visually pleasing. Below are two options that fit the bill and would look so enchanting sitting in your pantry.
The glass design of this canister is great for easily seeing what is inside. Plus, the air-tight clamp lids and silicone gaskets will keep things fresh.
This is another glass option available with the same airtight benefits. I love the look of this acacia wood top that would give a more earthy feel to your pantry. Plus the lid design makes it easy to open and offers something extra to give your pantry that custom feel.
Another trait of on the go items are individually packaged snack items. Although these bags, bars, and pouches can be so handy, they can also be a nightmare to store since they can easily slip off a shelf and onto the floor. These drawer bins are great for keeping things organized. I have an open option that is great for bulk items and a T-handle design that allows for quick reorganization while also dividing the bin to help keep items upright and separated. Depending on your pantry items, try one of them out.
Snacking items can come in so many different shapes and sizes. While some can be easily decanted into alternative storage solutions, others need to utilize an organizer that is designed to easily fit these items while still maintaining order and looking beautiful. Below are some of the best options for both types.
This organizer is great for snacks that are being stored in their original packaging. This system provides a divided bin to store small items with two adjustable dividers to easily customize different-sized items.
