I love a well-organized kitchen. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home, so why not show it some love as well?! Every few months you can find me in the kitchen, pulling everything out, and reorganizing. Sometimes it just starts to become a mess. Others I decide that I want to try something different to hopefully make my time in there a little easier. Others it’s because I’ve changed what my priorities are when it comes to cooking. Whatever the reasoning, I have to have an organized kitchen.

Command Hooks: These have many great uses, such as hanging your cleaning cloths inside a cabinet, hanging your mixer attachments in a pantry to save space, etc.
Stackable Storage Bins, open on the front: I use these for storing my fruits and vegetables in the pantry. They are great because they can stack, making use of vertical space, but they also are open on the front so you can easily grab the items without having to unstack the bins.
Clear Plastic Storage Bins: These bins are perfect for organizing small items in the pantry, such as seasoning packets, or for use in the refrigerator to help contain similar items. Since they are clear, even if you stack them you can still see what is in the lower bins.
Square Glass Food Containers: In my opinion, I love the look of a pantry without all the store boxes and packaging. I also prefer to store my food in glass containers, because they are safer and more environmentally friendly than plastic. I’ve had both square and round containers, and find the square work a little easier because they can be stored closer together with less wasted space.
Pantry Baskets: The set I linked to has 3 for spices, and 3 larger baskets. We have a few of these holding the kid’s snacks. The handle makes it easy for the boys to be able to pull the basket out a little bit to be able to grab the food inside.
Adjustable Drawer Organizer: Another very versatile organizer, a drawer organizer can be used for your silverware, your cooking utensils, and/or your junk drawer.
Magazine Holder: I have one of these in my pantry to stack all my aluminum foil, wax paper, parchment paper, etc. so it doesn’t take up a lot of space because I am taking advantage of vertical space.
