Yesterday I shared some fun ways to organize your cluttered kitchen. Here are some of the simple ways we have better organized the Grove Pointe kitchen:
Cereal is a staple in the Murphy house and we store ours in these containers on the fridge. It helps to keep the cereal lasting longer without having many boxes crowding the space.
Lastly, I store all of our glass storage lids in a separate container. I also use another basket to hold all of our tinier plastic storage pieces. This has really helped when looking for the perfect size container.
So that is a look at what we have currently done to keep our kitchen less cluttered and easier to navigate. Have you tried any of these in your kitchen?
When we first moved into our house, the kitchen seemed to be the hardest part when it came to finding a perfect place for everything. While it is still far from perfect, there are ways we have found to organize our kitchen. It can seem like an impossible mission, but here are some of the tips I like for beginning to organize your cluttered kitchen:
I try to be conscious about freezing leftovers since there is only the two of use and many recipes make large portions. This can cause the freezer to get cluttered quickly, but containers with labels like this make a big difference. You can often find ones like these at the dollar store.
One area in every kitchen that can tend to get messy fast is the tupperware cabinet. I use glass containers that easily stack and like the idea of a separate space for storing all of the lids.
These vertical shelves help keep baking sheets and pans organized and would definitely make it easier to locate what you need. I know that I often am frustrated having to dig out the baking sheet from under a large pile.
I will share how I have organized my kitchen tomorrow.
Will you be trying any of these tips in your kitchen? Have you found any other ways to make your kitchen more functional?
