To me there is nothing more satisfying than taking things
out of the containers that they came in and putting them
directly into different (usually clear acrylic) containers. *sigh* My
heart is smiling just thinking about it. With that said it probably
comes as no surprise that organizing my entire home is a goal
of mine and slowly I am making my way through. In this article
I am focusing on how I organized one of the hardest organizing
challenges I have yet to face, my kitchen. It took me forever to try
to figure out how I wanted it all to be set up, but I think I managed
to figure out a working layout. Scroll on down to see the pics! (Also I will
link all the products I can below the photos.)
Let’s start with the cabinets!
In both of these cabinets the main organizing I did was making
sure all my Tupperware containers had matching lids and then
adding in some white plastic shelves from the Dollar Tree.
These allowed me to stack my plates and containers on top
of each other in a way that makes everything easier to get to.
I wish I would have taken a before picture of this cabinet
because it was just simply out of control. There were cups and
things just thrown around everywhere! I know it still doesn’t look
perfect but it looks sooo much better than where we started I can promise you that.
I think I am going to add some contact paper to the
bottom of the shelf as well to help with the look.
This is my baking cabinet. This was the first cabinet in the
kitchen I ever organized annnnd it shows. lol One thing I hope
to do someday is get all matching containers to give the
cabinet an overall more cohesive look, but this works for now.
(Almost all of these containers came from Marshalls or Walmart.)
I am in love with how this cabinet turned out. In here I used to have
a two tiered lazy Susan that held all of my spices. However, they
kept falling off and there just wasn’t enough space to store all
of them in here that way. So I put the spices in my utensils drawer
and moved the utensils here! They are separated out by type (spoons, whisks, spatulas, etc) and
rest inside some glass flower vases from Walmart which I then set
inside a clear plastic lazy Susan also from Walmart. So much better!
Now while I love the new utensil setup my favorite cabinet transformation has to be under the kitchen sink!
Is this not just one of the best glow ups you have ever seen? Lol
I think putting the contact paper on the bottom really helped
step it up a notch too! Might have to do that to all my cabinets. Lol
On this side we have all the little things sorted out into these
amazing stackable drawers from Amazon.
And this side holds all the cleaning supplies! I was skeptical
about the lazy susan at first to be honest. I thought it would
look too messy, but I’m actually really happy with it annnd
it’s a lot easier to find what I need this way.
Finally over the cabinet door I put this basket to hold
my clingwrap and aluminum foil.
Now on to drawers!
Ah the famous midwest junk drawer. lol All the white
containers came from the Dollar Tree.
Next we have the silverware drawer. Here’s the before:
And the after!
As many of you may know I bought the gray organizers from
Amazon after seeing them in a TikTok and they are total game
changers. So happy with them! The white container for all my
straws came from the Dollar Tree.
This was probably one of the biggest drawer revamps…here’s the chaotic before:
And the tamed after!
Again all containers came from the Dollar Tree.
(We organize on a budget here when we can! lol)
Okay and now it is time for my favorite of all the drawers….
The spices!!! This seriously makes my heart so happy! All of
the spices came in the glass jars already since I bought the organic
versions and so I just added these white labels from Amazon
onto the jars. I love the way it turned out! It looks so cute!
Now let’s move on to the fridge which seems to forever be a work in progress. lol
On the top shelf I have all the drinks from water to juice to
milk! (Judge me all you want for putting the milk in the little
bottles too, but I think it looks cute. Lol)
On the second shelf is where I store my eggs, yogurt, and my fruit!
Yogurt Container -Walmart
On the last shelf in the fridge I have a container from Marshalls
that I put any thawing meat in. That way if it were to leak the
container catches the juices. And next to that is where I keep my leftovers.
Below that shelf in the crisper drawers we have meats and cheese, veggies, and bread.
Here’s a closer look at the meats and cheeses drawer.
These rubbermaid containers were a great investment. They seal so well!
And here is the inside of the door. In the top we have the
butter, followed by liquids, condiments, international
sauces, and thennn well…mostly baking stuff on the
bottom (although it is still a bit of a hodge podge lol).
And finally….we have the pantry!
