My pantry is packed, and I’m annoyed about it.

Having a fully stocked larder feels great – and 100% supports the breadth of recipe types I create and the foods my family eats. But: I’ve got more stuff than my space can handle well, and I’m having trouble locating ingredients when I need them.

So, it’s time for a good run of pantry-clearing dinners.

Here’s what I have on hand:

Main pantry – this is a double cabinet, and finding ingredients has gotten a bit unwieldy – especially on that right hand side
This is just a mess – a great organizational start with mostly-labeled bins, but there is just more stuff than the space can support
