The trickiest thing about organizing a pantry is that you house all kinds of stuff in there, from little treats to bulk grains to big unwieldy things like the serving platters that don't fit in your regular cabinets.
I think that's why this smart trick is the top-pinned pantry organizing hack on Pinterest. It offers a solution on how to deal with those little, oddly shaped drink mixes and soup packets that won't stack, but are sort of too small to contain in a big bin. And honestly, having a bunch of little bins can be as annoying as just having the stuff loose.
The ingenious idea: Use sponge caddies to organize drink and soup mixes along the wall of your pantry. This could work well for spice packets too.

It's ingenious because it gets those little packets off the shelf, uses an area of your pantry that is otherwise totally useless, and starts with a surprisingly right-sized container you'd find in a different part of the home store.

Those sponge caddies are cheap — similar ones are less than $4 on Amazon — and just the right size to hold those drink mixes and soup packets. Plus, they're lightweight, so you could even use Command hooks or adhesive strips to adhere them to the wall if you didn't feel like using hardware, which means they're a good solution for renters and homeowners alike!
