This year I decided to make a concentrated effort on organizing my kitchen and most importantly, keeping it that way.  When I started organizing the kitchen, I looked for some organizational tools that would help and I found some amazing things that would keep everything ship shape in no time.

“My life at home gives me absolute joy. There are some days when, as soon as you’ve finished cooking breakfast and cleaning up the kitchen, it’s time to start lunch, and by the time you’ve done that, you’re doing dinner and thinking, ‘There has to be a menu we can order from’.”

Julia Roberts

You don’t have to use all of the kitchen organizing ideas below, but if you start on a section of your kitchen at a time, pretty soon your kitchen will be a clutter-free environment.

Creating a Cozy Life Group

Since you’re looking for kitchen organizing ideas, I’m guessing you like all things cozy living. I created a Facebook group called Creating a Cozy Life with over 68,000 like-minded souls.

It’s a group where we share recipes, pictures of things that leave you in awe, and ideas on how to make your life just a little bit more snug.  Join here to be part of the virtual cozy cabin.

Here’s How to Make Your Kitchen Organizing Plan a Reality:

1. Organized Kitchen Cabinets

If you’re like me, there’s never enough cupboard space.  The key to kitchen organizing is to optimize each cabinet’s space and make sure you’re using every square space.

Cutting Board Organization

Hold your cutting boards in an out-of-a-way-place like the back of your cupboard door.

This SimpleHouseware Over the Cabinet Door Organizer Holder is a Best Seller on Amazon for a reason.

Organizing your Spices

I always keep my spices in one of my kitchen cupboards, and they were definitely one of the most annoying spots of my house. I have a large variety of spices and finding the right one would take several minutes every time I cooked.

I finally took the time to find shelves that would hold my spices and it made cooking so much easier. Decide what the problem areas of your kitchen and match it with a kitchen organizing solution. Sometimes it is as simple as buying one item that makes your life a whole lot better.

One of the ladies in the Cozy Living Group decided to tackle their spice section of their kitchen.  She bought new spice bottles with matching labels and now loves going into that section of the pantry because it looks so good and everything is easy to find.  Here are the spice jars she bought on Amazon.  

After she bought all the spice jars – she decided to buy tea canisters for her tea blends.  You can find the matching tea canisters here.

If you prefer to have them wall-mounted how about this? What I love about this idea is that you can finally take your kitchen wrap boxes out of drawers and free up that space. One of the most important things to remember in kitchen organizing is to find ways to store things in space that you don’t use already.

Pin bones can be a nuisance when consuming fish. To remove them, run your hand over the fillet to detect the direction of the bones. Then, use a pair of fish tweezers or pliers to grip and pull out the pin bones in the opposite direction they are pointing. Be cautious not to damage the fillet while removing the bones. Alternatively, you can also use kitchen shears to make small cuts around the bones and remove them.

Take a few minutes to go through your kitchen cabinets, drawers, and pantry. Throw out anything you don’t use or don’t need anymore. Invest in a few plastic or glass containers to store kitchen items like flour, sugar, and cereal. Keeping these items in containers will make them easier to organize and keep fresh. If you’re short on cabinet space, hang your utensils and pots on the wall. This will free up cabinet space and make it easier to grab what you need when you’re cooking. Thanks.
