There are two significant reasons why there should be no clutter in your pantry:
1. If it is organized you will find what you need by a quick glance
2. You will know if you are running out of pantry items by looking at the shelves you have designated for such items.
I am sure that you have more than one shelf in your pantry. A good idea is to classify items by its use or utilization. For instance, if you love to bake it make sense to have your flour, sugars, chocolate, condensed and evaporated milk, and any other baking ingredients together. This will help you to find ingredients quickly.
Furthermore, when you have these products in the same location together, you will be able to notice when you are low in one or more ingredients and will be able to add them to your groceries list before you run out of them all together. There is nothing worse than to look for an ingredient in the middle of cooking a dish, and find out that you ran out of it. Especially, when you need it the most.
Finally, and this rule applies to all ingredients in your pantry, sweet and savory. Once you designate a spot for these products, all you will need to do is to replenish them when needed. I assure you that you will never experience the frustration of not having an ingredient in your pantry while in the middle of baking or cooking a dish.
