6 Clever Ways To Organize Your Kitchen
As the saying goes, orderliness is next to godliness, and there probably isn't a room in your home where that's more relevant than in the kitchen. An organized kitchen isn't just practical when hunger demands that things move at a fast pace, it also gives off major Marie Kondo vibes, which probably means it's good for your mental health. Right? Right! These 6 organization hacks are going to show you how fast and easy it is to optimize your kitchen.
1. Organize Your Spice Drawer
- cereal boxes
Cut open the cereal boxes and remove the top and bottom tabs. Then just fold them as shown in the video and put the pieces of cardboard into the drawer one by one and one behind the other. Now you can put all your precious spices into one drawer and never rummage around for them again.
2. Stack Bowls In The Fridge
If you've lost the lids on your favorite bowls, or they just didn't come with any to begin with, here's a little trick for you the next time you're trying to stack them in the fridge. Just put 2 chopsticks on the bottom bowl and you can place the other bowl on top like it's NBD.
3. Organize Your Canned Goods
- spring tension rod
Simply place the shelves in your cupboard a little lower in the front than at the back so that they hang at a slight angle. Then attach a spring tension rod at the front so that the cans can't roll out. This way you always have a good overview of all your canned goods. Leave no bean behind!
4. DIY Plastic Bag Dispenser
- empty tissue box
Just stuff all the plastic bags hanging around your kitchen into an empty tissue box. Then place the box in a drawer and you have a practical bag dispenser. You'll kick yourself for not thinking of this sooner!
5. Store Plastic Lids
- hot glue
Glue the ends of a slinky together. Now you can put all the lids from your plastic containers into the spiral. And there you have it – super practical and a great way to organize all those loose lids. You're welcome!
6. Kitchen Utensil Hanger
- mounting tape
Remove the retainer from an old binder and stick it to the inside of your cupboard door with mounting tape. Now you can just hang all your kitchen utensils from hooks and you no longer have to worry about them flying around and making a mess of your kitchen.
Once you turn that corner and transform your kitchen into an organized, functional space, you'll never go back to your old ways – we guarantee it! And considering how easy it is, there really is no excuse. So, hop to it – you won't regret it!
