Welcome back! As promised, here are a few other areas of my kitchen I have organized. I’ll take you through what is located in each section and what items I used to organize it all out.
I hope that you are all finding the happiness in getting your house together!
Pots & Pans
This cupboard can always get people because it can be an awkward mess! Our cupboard space is great, we just weren’t utilizing it correctly. I finally purchased a Pan Organizer and used it to sort out the lids for the various pans. I then sorted out our pans and stacked them by type, then size. I was hoping to use another Pan Organizer for my frying pans, unfortunately the shelf is the back is too low and doesn’t adjust. Making this change (and of course we cleared some stuff out of it prior to organizing it) has made it so much easier for us to get to items while preparing dinner, baking, etc!
I love baking! It brings me such joy, especially when I am able to bake for others. My baking cupboard was MESS though! Cupcake pans and racks awkwardly stacked, stuff everywhere, ugh, it drove me nuts! I used another Pan Organizer to sort out my various baking pans and cooling racks. I was able to sort and “nest” the square baking pans I have; meaning they were able to go one inside the other like a Russian Nesting Doll. One of my other favorite organizing bins pieces are these Storage Boxes. They are such a great size and are perfect for sorting our a large variety of items. I use mine to sort out cookie cutters, cake supplies, and cupcake/decorating supplies.Whatever item I need, I just have to grab one box and my cupboard doesn’t become a disaster again.
The spice cupboard is another area that can just be a swirling vortex of terror. It seems that everything can just end up jammed in there, even if we try to keep it “organized”, it still give us a lot of difficultly to find anything. I am just so happy with how this cupboard turned out after I attacked it! The top shelf I used for our taco items, because we all love tacos, and there are only a few items that can lie flat. The second shelf I used two of these Turntables to sort out our various herbs and spices. The turntable on the left holds herbs and items of that sort, and they are in alphabetical order. The others turntable has all of our spices, also in alphabetical order. Now it takes me almost no time to find what I need as I am preparing a meal. For the bottom shelf I maximized our space by using this Expandable Shelf and sorted items by which I use most, meaning those go in the front. The back shelf I placed any packet mixes, in groups of course, since they are easy to pull out one at a time, The rest was placed in the middle and is easy to get to as well!
We enjoy entertaining through out the year, and have a few items that are used really only during those various events (birthday parties, BBQs, etc). I gave these items their own cupboard space so I don’t have to have them all over the place getting in the way of other pieces in my kitchen. As with every space, I make sure that like items are stored together and that items are stacked in a safe, organized way. Also in this cupboard, since my Keurig is on the counter about it, I keep my boxes of tea! As you can see, I enjoy a variety of teas. One Storage Box holds all the flavors that are caffeinated, the other holds all the herbal and decaf teas. As need I place a few bags in the drawer above this cabinet!
So there you have it! That is how a few other areas of my kitchen are sorted and organized. Are there any other areas in your kitchen you are struggling with, anything else I can share with you? Please let me know!
Until next time, have a beautiful day!
