A Few Easy and Clever Kitchen Storage and Organization Ideas
“Our Kitchen Rules: 1) If you empty it fill it; 2) If you dirty it clean it; 3) If you open it close it; 4) If you spill it wipe it up; 5) If you cook it share it” – Unknown
Every year after I take down all of my Christmas decorations, I go on a cleaning and organizing rampage. I don’t know why, but after all the decorations are down, it seems like the house is bare and dirty. I thought I’d share a few of my clever kitchen storage and organization ideas today. Some are super simple and cost-effecting repurposing ideas as well.
Here we go.
For some reason, my dog food scooper always breaks or gets lost in the food container. With the help of an old hook and some glue dots I added a little hook on the outside of the dog food container for easy access.
In my pantry, I used an old CD rack to organize some loose items that always get lost when I decide to throw away the box with only a few items left.
Also inside my pantry door, I added a cardboard whiteboard that I got as a white elephant gift this Christmas.
For my pot lids I use a leather letter caddy to keep them out of the way and upright.
I cut out some food boxes to use in my drawers to help keep my serving spoons and my daughter’s utensils organized.
Here is a picture of under my kitchen sink before and after.
I took an old plastic crate from the garage and another plastic bin I had to help keep things in place.
I got this idea from A Prudent Life and used a clothespin for my plastic gloves.
On the other side I used another hook for my fly swatter.
Lastly… my husband is SO happy about this one…I spent $15 and bought these organizers to store my cleaning equipment. Here is the before and after.
