DJ, author, wellness influencer, and Trader Joes devotee Hannah Bronfman has quite the arsenal of cooking staples, so many that she tasked a professional with tidying up the jumbled assemblage of ingredients, pots, and random storage vessels.Bronfmans husband, Brendan Fallis, recently shared an in-depth home tour of the couples just-finished Hamptons, New York retreat on YouTube, and in it,Bronfman reveals their now supremely neat pantry, courtesy of expert organizer Ashley La Fond, the founder of Of Space + Mind.
Hannah wanted to use glass jars, which meant exercising a bit of creativity, La Fond tells us. The pro spent a weekend at the couples house, leaving Bronfman and Fallis with this aesthetically pleasing arrangement of oils, spices, snacks, and more. La Fond takes us inside the transformation, and shares her three top tips for maximizing a small cabinet:
Arrange by Height
It looks better and its more functional. La Fond placed taller jars in the back for staples like flour and sugar; medium-sized canisters in the middle row for grains and pasta; and smaller ones for supplements, nuts, and seeds in the front. Everything is visible, making it easy for her to see what she has in each category, shares the pro.
Designate Zones with Different Containers
La Fonds rule of thumb when deciding what to put where? Separate items based on what they will be used for and how often. Once youve grouped like items together, use multiple types of accessories to your advantage. The items on the lazy susans are things we knew Hannah and Brendan would reach for frequently, so we placed them on the middle shelves to keep them accessible, explains La Fond. Duplicates and condiments live in acrylic bins on the top shelf, while canned goods and smoothie staples are placed in open metal baskets at the bottom.
Decant, Decant, Decant
Packaging can take up a ton of space, so transfer every item to glass jars to maximize every square inch (not to mention, create a streamlined display). La Fonds number one tip: Find ones that are stackable! When you see what you have, you waste less. Double win.
