This is my Best Pantry Organizing Tip because it stays organized every day of every week. The rest of my pantry will stay organized for a hot minute, but my pegboard wall is always exactly as it was when I first put it together.
Everything has its place, and if a new item is introduced, just a few adjustments can quickly accommodate the new item.
Y’all are probably wondering why I’m sharing an organizing post when I’ve made no secret of my lack of organization.
However, I cleaned out my pantry and realized I have a brilliant tip you need to know about.

Peg Board Wall – Brilliant Idea
First, when we were building our forever home, a large walk-in pantry was one of my top priorities.
The kitchen would have limited cabinets, and cookware was always a storage issue in all my previous homes. I dreaded digging through the cabinet to find the pot I needed.
Although our builder was skeptical of this idea. It’s the most brilliant idea I’ve ever had, in my opinion. LOL
Why is this the Best Pantry Organizing tip
Everything has a place, and you never have to move an item to find what you’re looking for.
What do you need to make it work?
Just a few pegboard accessories will organize all your pots and pans. So many baskets, hooks and hangers can be used securely on a peg board.
One of my favorite accessory is the magazine file holder hack. I probably saw this on Pinterest years ago and it’s a genius idea for holding aluminum foil, wax paper, plastic wrap, etc. containers. Just a couple of holes punched into the mesh of the holder and insert the J Hooks to attach to the peg board.
What if I don’t have a wall for Peg Board?
You don’t have to have an entire wall of peg board for it to help organize your pantry. You can place pieces of peg board above or below your shelves, as well as in between.

Easy to organize and move if needed.
Simple J hooks are perfect for hanging most saucepans & skillets. They are sturdy and easy to move if you need to.
One of my smaller sauce pans needs these wire brackets because it doesn’t have a hole in the handle for the J Hook.
In addition, the peg board is perfect for hanging some of the larger serving pieces. For these, I used a wall plate rack held securely in place with several J Hooks.
Best Panty Organizing Tip For Up High
Another thing I like about the peg board is that it allows seldom-used items to hang high on the wall.
I have a sturdy step ladder that’s easy to use when these items are needed.
The convenient wire baskets are great for storing items that are used frequently or are hard to organize on a shelf; such has dry spice packets.
Bonus Organizing Tips for the Pantry
When organizing shelves, another great tool is the lazy susan. I have several for canned foods and spices throughout the pantry. They come in single and double shelves for different heights and container sizes.
Another tip that has made using my pantry very user-friendly is installing an automatic light. When the pantry door opens, the light automatically comes on. As often as I open that door, it’s a great convenience.
This is the button that automatically turns the light on inside my pantry.
If your pantry is on a light switch inside the closed door, you can quickly and inexpensively change out the control so that the light automatically comes on. Here is one option.
