I’ve always been a big snacker and nothing is more frustrating than going to the pantry for a snack and not being able to find what you’re looking for! An easy way to solve this challenge is to corral ALL of the snacks from the pantry into one “snack bin.” See below (this is actually the snack bin I set up for my parents awhile ago- its been years and still works like a charm).

Inside the snack bin are all of the chips, crackers, candy, chocolate and any other food that classifies as a “snack.” What you can’t see in the picture are foods that are individually wrapped (e.g., granola bars, fruit snacks, raisin boxes, etc) are tossed inside this bin minus there original box.

For example, when you buy a box of 6 granola bars, remove the granola bars from the box and toss them freely into the snack bin, of course with the wrapper still on (you’ll save space). Snacks are now together, in one place, easy to access. P.S. – We added wheels to this snack bin to make it super accessible to move 🙂
