10 Thoughts on RV Pantry Containers

I have to admit to having "pantry envy" for some of the storage I've seen in other RV's.  Unfortunately, our 395m has very narrow (only 5") shelves.  To keep things from falling out and looking organized, I chose to use mostly stackable containers and moved can foods and extras to another area.  Here are my 10 tips for utilizing this space. (All sizes are approximate see our Shopping page for links sharing actual dimensions and products).


#1  These are great for this space easy in/easy out and sits perfect on the self behind the guard. About 4.5"x 5.25", they hold 1 lb of pasta, trail mix, nuts, dried fruit, etc. 

#2  Tall and skinny (4" x 12"), these hold about the same amount as #1, but utilize tall spaces. Works for spaghetti, linguine, cereal, coffee pods, etc. 

#3   I probably wouldn't get this size (5" x 9") again, I'd go for the larger one or two smaller ones as it waste prime space in the cupboard.

#4   This one takes up a good amount of space.  Great for lasagna noodles but that's about it. Go for two of the taller canisters or four of the smaller ones to maximize your storage,. 

#5   Tip: keep your larger bottle of oil in here and keep a small Olive Oil Dispenser by the stove.  I also keep my coconut oil tucked into one of the side pockets, The cupboard stays warm and keeps the oil soft. 

#6   These are just a tad bit too big (5.5" x 5) but they work okay and they fill up the space when stacked. They work especially good for individual wrapped items like granola bars, trail mix, cereal, larger pasta, etc. 

#7   This is another size (3.5" x 8") I most likely wouldn't get again.  I'd go for the larger one or two smaller ones to avoid wasting space.

#8   Great size (5" x 12") for bulk food like flour, sugar, etc.  Also good for crackers, easily holds a whole box (four packs). 

#9    Works well for stacking (4.5" x 7") with #1

#10   Tip: I love this Grease Storage Container. No worries about grease getting into our RV sink, I just poor it in this container which come with liners and throw them away when it gets full or old.   

Many of these containers can be found on our Amazon store at the same price as shown on Amazon or at Walmart.

It's still cold in the Colorado mountains so my favorite lunch is Taco Soup made in the Instant Pot. I make a big pot and freeze the rest in individual portions. 


Sunday dinner pot roast can't get any better than in the instant pot.  Make enough to freeze half and you'll have a free day off whenever you choose.
