If only the pantry was a little bit bigger when that two-for-one sale at the supermarket is too good to pass up. Rolling on in is the IKEA RÅSKOG cart to the rescue! Use it as additional storage when you’ve brought home just a tad more than your shelves can manage, and wheel the cart right on out when it’s not in need. The narrow profile of the cart allows for it to easily slide in and out of close quarters like a pantry or closet for extra and easy storage in no time at all!

3 Tips for Setting Up Your RÅSKOG Cart Pantry Organizer

  • Think non-perishables: The staple non-perishable goods, such as cans of soup, boxes of instant mashed potatoes, and bags of marshmallows, will pack perfectly into the cart.
  • Pair like with like: This almost goes without saying, but grouping your beans and other canned goods, your pastas, and your nut butters together means less time rooting around when the kids are antsy for dinner or you’re battling a serious case of hanger.

  • Use the bottom shelf for reserves: A caveat to the above: If you’re stocking up on essentials and have, say, 10 cans of crushed tomatoes, you may want to put a couple higher up, then put the rest on the bottom shelf.
