THE Tips: Snack Organization

Clea and I have as many differences as we do similarities. While Clea refuses to live without her champagne, I won’t go without my snacks—candy if we’re getting specific.

On any given day, you could take a peek inside my bag and think I robbed Willy Wonka himself. I’m totally fine with that, no shame in this snack game!

As someone who takes snack time *this* seriously, it should come as no surprise that I love organizing bite-sized treats as much as I enjoy eating them (which often happens simultaneously). While some people prefer to hide their snacks to avoid temptation, I’m all about grab-and-go functionality and creating a space where ROYGBIV magic comes to life. Because when something looks as good as it tastes, it’s a win-win.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—Khloe Kardashian’s pantry is a snack mecca. If you want it, she’s got it. We used a mixture of canisters to highlight Khloe’s staple snacks, including the OXO Good Grips POP 3 qt. Slant Jars for single-serving treats and 4 qt. Square POP Canisters for items like cookies and nuts, which we stacked to maximize shelf space.

For larger chip bags and snacks that Khloe only buys on occasion, we chose the Whitewashed Rattan Storage Bins with Handles because they meshed perfectly with the acrylic bins and white lids.

By the way, if anyone was on the fence whether or not snacks can double as decor, the glass canisters on Khloe’s countertop are sure to prove it.

THE Canisters are also stackable and come in four different sizes—small, medium, large, and tall—so you can mix and match depending on your needs. These air-tight canisters also fit perfectly on THE 3-Tier Shelf.

Mallory Ervin’s pantry is a ROYGBIV snack paradise. We used THE All-Purpose Bins to line the bottom shelf with the healthy snacks that her kids love the most. Clear bins allow them to see the snack or find by color since they aren’t old enough to read labels yet. It goes to show that color-coding isn’t just functional and aesthetically pleasing—it can also be a learning tool!

And speaking of kid-friendly, THE Divided Turntable is where functionality takes center stage. Instead of needing to reach inside a bin, kids can simply spin and grab. The removable dividers also allow you to customize the space you need, whether it’s bulky pouches or small snack packs.

Snacks don’t always have to be front and center to be functional and aesthetically pleasing, they can also be neatly tucked away in a drawer. Utilize inserts to keep your snack categories grouped and visible. For a deep drawer, take advantage of vertical space with THE Bin Organizers or THE Canisters.

Happy Snacking!

  1. Love this, so much inspiration! Question about your last photo – I am trying to organize a drawer and the small empty space between the bins is making me a little crazy. Do you just make peace with it? Did you secure the bins so they don’t slide around? Thanks for your advice!

    1. I have that same issue. I bought clear glue dots at a craft store to stop them from sliding around in the drawer every time I opened it.

    2. Hi James! I know The Home Edit team uses Museum Gel (or Museum Putty maybe) to secure acrylic bins. It’s clear, removable, and you can get it at The Container Store.

      As for the space between your bins, find your inner peace…or if you can’t find that, maybe find a few very narrow items (fruit strips for a pantry? bandages for the bathroom? post-its for a desk?) and slip them into that space.
