Kitchen Organization Tips

Kitchen organization probably sounds like a boring and daunting topic at first glance… and if I’m being candid, I’ve bee n procrastinating with the entire thing for a while now. Today I’m sharing a few tips to help you get started with getting organized in your kitchen.

I hope it’s not just me, but I’ve seemed to accumulated a lot of kitchen stuff throughout the last few years. Before I started to organize everything, I felt like I was always just trying to find a drawer or cabinet that had enough space for me to pile everything into. I finally said enough was enough and headed to The Container Store for some answers. Now, I’ve always loved The Container Store but I’ve never spent enough time and really invested in supplies to really get organized. While I’m still not 100% organized, getting the main items my roommate and I use day to day under control has made a huge difference. Scroll down to check out three areas of my kitchen I’ve started organizing!

I started with my countertop. By clearing up some of my seasonings and appliances that sat out on the counter everyday, it really started to clear up some space but it still didn’t look complete. I used a marble tray to gather a few of my countertop essentials; butter dish, salt and pepper shakers and my cooking utensils.


I found that in my pantry I had a lot of smaller items that were loose or in a ton of small boxes. My first thing to getting these items organized was to get rid of all of the boxes – I ended up using these acrylic containers to hold all of my teas and drink powders (hello wedding season!). I also used these acrylic containers to hold all of my spices for cooking. Both of these containers help make everything pretty on my shelves and they’re also easy to grab when I need something.


Under my sink cabinet, I used a less pretty, but highly functional storage option. I got three of these containers and they fit absolutely perfectly under my sink. They fit all of my cleaning supplies perfectly and I even got one to hold all those grocery bags that just stack up under the sink! Check out how I used mine below.

      All of the containers are from The Container Store- The ones I used to hold my cleaning supplies were from there too but I can’t seem to find them anywhere online! They were a really good price (I think $5.99 each) and right at the front of my store when I walked in.. thinking they might have been a new item!
