Top Tips for Labelling Your Pantry Containers

If you're tired of rummaging through shelves to find half filled open packets of food, it's time to bring order to your pantry chaos! Here are our top tips for labelling your pantry containers using the Cricut Joy so you can transform your pantry into an organised haven.

  1. Consistent Aesthetics: Incorporating a consistent aesthetic in your pantry labelling not only creates visual harmony but also adds a touch of style to your storage solutions. The Cricut Design Space offers an array of sleek and modern labels that can complement any kitchen. Choose a cohesive colour palette, font style, and label shape to tie everything together. We liked this clean style where we could clearly read the ingredients. Opt for clear and easy-to-read fonts to ensure that your labels serve their purpose efficiently
  2. Clear and Readable Fonts: Make sure the text size is large enough to be visible at a glance, especially for commonly used items like flour, sugar, or pasta. This is especially important when you track the contents of your pantry before your next shop.
  3. Categorise for Convenience: Whether it's grouping spices, grains, or snacks, clearly defined categories make it easier to locate what you need in a hurry. Consider using color-coded labels or different shapes for various categories, adding a practical and visually appealing element to your pantry organisation.
  4. Include Expiry Dates:  When decanting your food into containers, sometimes it's difficult to remember the best before date. Keep track of the freshness of your pantry staples by adding expiry dates to your labels. This proactive approach helps minimize food waste and ensures you always use your ingredients at their best.
  5. First in, first out: we recommend putting newer items at the back of your pantry to ensure that you are using existing items first! This is a great way to reduce waste and use existing stock first. Don't forget to check the best before dates to keep on top of your pantry staples!
  6. Regularly Update and Maintain: make it a habit to regularly update and maintain your pantry labels. As you use up ingredients or introduce new items into your pantry, update the labels accordingly to reflect the current contents. Regular maintenance ensures that your pantry remains organised and functional, saving you time and effort in the long run.
