Organizing Kitchen Hacks

Organizing a kitchen efficiently can make meal preparation easier and more enjoyable. Here are some of the most helpful hacks to keep your kitchen organized:

  1. Use Drawer Dividers: Keep utensils and small kitchen gadgets organized by using drawer dividers. Literally there are thousands to choose from. We use these plastic ones and these bamboo ones awful lot. It all depends on the stuff you have. These sure do help make it more easy in finding what you need and keeping items from getting jumbled.
  2. Utilize Vertical Space: Install shelves or hanging racks to use vertical space for storing pots, pans, and utensils. Magnetic knife strips can also save counter space and keep knives easily accessible.
  3. Group Similar Items: Organize your kitchen by zones. Keep all baking items together, cooking spices and oils near the stove, and coffee-making supplies near the coffee maker (my morning starts here). This zone-based approach streamlines your cooking process.
  4. Use Clear Storage Containers: Store pantry items like grains, pasta, and baking ingredients in clear, airtight containers. Not only does this keep food fresh, but it also allows you to quickly see what you have and what you need to restock. Now, our suggestions here are very minimal as we use a plethora of products for many different homes. Check back on our blog for more as we post them. 
  5. Label Everything: This is my favorite part. Labels can be a game-changer in a kitchen. Label shelve s, bins, and containers for easy identification and to maintain organization.
  6. Hang Items Inside Cabinet Doors: Use the inside of cabinet doors to hang measuring cups, spoons, and small bins for storing sponges and cleaning supplies. This frees up drawer and shelf space.
  7. Invest in a Pot Lid Organizer: Pot lids can be cumbersome to store. Use a pot lid organizer inside a cabinet or on a pantry door to keep them neat and easily accessible.
  8. Use Turntables for Corner Cabinets: Lazy Susans or turntables can make corner cabinets and hard-to-reach areas more functional. Use them for spices, condiments, or small jars to maximize space and accessibility.
