Best IKEA Organizers For Your Pantry

IKEA Organizers

Hey there, super moms! Between managing the household and taking care of the kids, finding time to sort out the pantry can be a daunting task. But fear not—IKEA is here to save the day! In this post, we’ll explore how you can transform your chaotic pantry into an organized oasis using IKEA organizers.

Benefits of an Organized Pantry

Before we dive into the products, let’s talk about why having an organized pantry is so beneficial. An organized pantry isn’t just about aesthetics; it can significantly improve your daily life. Imagine being able to quickly locate ingredients while cooking or instantly knowing what you need to restock during grocery shopping. An organized pantry saves time, reduces stress, and helps prevent food waste by ensuring you use items before they expire.


Let’s start with the basics—UPPDATERA boxes. These versatile storage solutions come in two sizes and work great as bins on a shelf or as dividers inside deep drawers. They help keep smaller items together, preventing them from getting lost in the chaos. You can use them to store everything from snacks and sweets to baking and dinner. Their durable plastic construction and integrated handles make them easy to move around and clean.

How to Use UPPDATERA Boxes

  • Snack Station: Create a designated snack area by removing them from boxes and placing all snack items in a UPPDATERA box. This makes it easy for kids to grab a quick bite.
  • Food categories: Sort all your foods into categories like baking, dinner, cookies, nuts & seeds etc. and dedicate a separate bin for each.

Next up is a new addition to IKEA that has quickly replaced all other lazy Susans on the market—KLIPPKAKTUS. This turntable is great for all jars, bottles, and cans in your pantry. If you have a dead corner in your pantry, put a turntable there! It allows you to access items stored at the back without having to rearrange everything in front. The KLIPPKAKTUS is sturdy and smooth, making it easy to rotate and find exactly what you need.


  • Jars and Bottles: Store all your jars and bottles on a KLIPPKAKTUS turntable to keep them accessible. It’s perfect for vinegar, oil, and sauce bottles.
  • Condiments: Place condiments on the turntable to easily find and reach them when cooking or preparing meals.
  • Spices: Use a KLIPPKAKTUS for spices if you have a large collection. It makes it easy to rotate and find the right spice quickly.

3. Ikea 365+ Glass Canisters

Let me tell you the benefits of transferring foods such as grains and flour into canisters. It extends freshness by providing airtight sealing, preventing exposure to air, moisture, and pests. Additionally, canisters enhance pantry organization by offering clear visibility, space efficiency, and easier inventory management.

It’s important to choose canisters that will be airtight, easy to open, have a wide enough opening to scoop with a measuring cup, and be large enough to fit a whole package, so you don’t have leftovers expiring somewhere. And by the way, regarding expiry dates, don’t forget to write them on the side of the jar with an erase marker (or label maker if you’re really cool). And the IKEA 365+ glass jars with bamboo lids check all the boxes.

How to Use IKEA 365+ Glass Jars

  • Grains: Store grains like rice, quinoa, and oats in these jars to keep them fresh and easily accessible.
  • Baking Supplies: Store baking supplies like sugar, different types of flour, chocolate chips in these jars to keep your pantry tidy and organized.
  • Don’t put in these jars: Cereal requires a different type of container that is light and easy to pour. Check number 8 for those.

4. LABBSAL Baskets

Add a wicker basket to a pantry, and it will look amazing right away. It’s all about mixing materials and textures, just like in interior design. White plastic plus wicker is a showstopper. Not to mention that these are large and will fit all your chips and popcorn that might be too big for UPPDATERA boxes. If you’re a Costco shopper, you’ll definitely need larger baskets. IKEA has a variety of wicker baskets, but we like the look of LABBSAL the best.

How to Use LABBSAL Baskets

  • Chips and Snacks: Store large bags of chips and popcorn in wicker baskets to keep them contained and easily accessible.
  • Produce: Use wicker baskets to store produce like potatoes and onions. The baskets allow for good air circulation, keeping your produce fresh longer.
  • Bulk Items: Store bulk items like large bags of rice or flour in wicker baskets to keep them organized and out of the way.

They are the perfect size and very sturdy, making them ideal for storing heavier items. The natural wood adds a warm,modern touch to your pantry, creating a visually appealing and functional space.

Next up is PLUGGIS bin, which is like an oversized UPPDATERA box. We love the open front design, which lets you see and grab what you need that much easier. These bins are perfect for storing larger items or grouping similar items together for easy access.

How to Use PLUGGIS Bins

  • Pantry Staples: Store larger pantry staples like flour, rice, and cereals (if not transferring to container) in PLUGGIS bins for easy access.
  • Cleaning Supplies: Use PLUGGIS bins to store cleaning supplies, keeping them organized and if there are any spills, this bin is super easy to wipe.

7. RISATORP Baskets

What’s the perfect bin for onions, potatoes, and other root vegetables? We think RISATORP baskets are the answer. These baskets are not only stylish but also functional, providing good air circulation to keep your vegetables fresh.
