For actress Tia Mowry, a well-organized pantry helps her manage the busyness in her day-to-day life. Along with starring in the Netflix comedy Family Reunion, the mom of two posts bi-monthly videos on her YouTube Channel and runs Anser, her very own supplement company.
That's exactly why she enlisted the help of California-based organizing company to bring order to her family's walk-in pantry. While Tia is hunkered down at home with her family to practicing social distancing, she gave Good Housekeeping an inside look at her pantry, sharing tips and tricks along the way.
While her space is pretty to look at (um, talk about pantry goals), it's also incredibly functional. Non-perishable items like rice, beans, cereal, and baking staples have been removed from their original packaging and placed in clear jars and containers, so she can see exactly how much she has of each item at any given time. Snacks, soups, and other go-to ingredients she needs within reach are stored in adorable wicker baskets, complete with handwritten chalk labels.
Her genius tip for parents: Stick all of your kid's plates, bibs, utensils, lunch bags, and bottles in baskets on a shelf that they can reach. That way, they can help move things along once mealtime hits — and they can lend a helping hand when you need it most.
