14 Tips to Organize Your Kitchen

Planning to organize your kitchen over the weekend? Read on for a few tips that’ll make the project easier to handle.

1. Organize bottles in your refrigerator doors by using six-pack beer holders to keep everything in place.

2. If you have odds and ends in your pantry, transfer those foods into containers or jars. You’ll free up some space and you’ll be able to better see everything you still have.

3. Label anything that isn’t immediately obvious.

4. Make your own towel hangers by using double-sided tape to attach clothespins to the wall. For more ways to efficiently run your home, check out Columbia Utilities on Facebook.

5. Prevent your knives from sliding and rattling by using a knife block specifically for drawers.

6. If you have limited closet and cupboard space in your kitchen, attach small items to the doors. You can pin boxes of baggies to the inside of the door, for example, to make more room on the shelves. It’s also a good idea to hang up your measuring spoons and cups for easy access.

7. Put drying racks in your cabinets to keep tupperware, dishes and other items neatly organized.

8. When organizing your fridge and pantry, keep the items you use the most on the lower shelves and toward the front and put all other items higher up and toward the back.

9. Keep your baggies and plastic bags organized by stuffing them in empty tissue boxes.

10. Keep your pans organized by using vertical wire organizers in the cabinets.

11. Need more storage space in a tall cupboard? Get a riser that you can move around to create an extra shelf.

12. Put spices in magnetic cases and arrange them on your refrigerator. They’ll stay out of your cupboard and they’ll always be within reach when you’re cooking.

13. The area directly under your sink can get cluttered with hard-to-reach cleaning supplies. Install a drawer so you can easily pull out everything you have stored.

14. Hang utensils on the wall and hang pots and pans from a high ceiling. They’ll always be nearby and you won’t take up precious storage space.

Once you’ve reorganized your entire kitchen, make a point to keep everything in order. Then, once a season, purge any items you no longer need and give your entire kitchen a deep cleaning.
