5 Steps To Organized Kitchen Cabinets
- Purge What You Have: The first thing you need to do in your quest to organizing your kitchen cabinets is to de-clutter. I am very guilty of keeping things around, even if they have gone past their prime. Before you organize your cabinets, go through everything you have and check for expiration dates and broken or torn seals or containers. Toss anything you cannot use so all you have left are items you can use.
- Get Things In Order: After you have tossed what you do not need, you need to get what you have left in order. The best thing to do is group like things together so they make sense to you. Put all your baking items together, your canned goods together and so on.
- Take Measurements: Next you need to buy containers and dividers to organize your kitchen cabinets. Before you do this, you need to measure your cabinets to know what will fit. There is nothing worse than choosing your organizational components and get them home and they do not fit!
- Choose Your Organizational Items: The next step, after you measure, is to choose the items you want to use to organize your cabinets. This can be a variety of products that can have a multitude of functions. I chose a number of different items from Spectrum Diversified to whip my cabinets into shape!
- Put Everything Into Place: Now that you have your organizational items, you need to place your cabinet contents in their rightful place. I have all of my boxes of food like rice, baking mixes and mac and cheese in one area. I have my baking items in another, canned goods in one and my bottles like syrup and honey in another. Now I can find what I need, when I need it and it looks so nice too!
For the pantry, I chose the Ashley Tiered Shelf Organizer, which sells for $13, for my baking supplies. It is perfect for keeping everything organized and at my fingertips. I also chose the Long Wire Caddy, which sells for $8 to keep my honey and sauces in order. For our drink packets, we are using the 6 x 6 Grid Tray Organizer, which sells for $4. Finally, I chose the Flower Bread Basket in black, which sells for $13, for keeping my fruit all together. For under the sink, I chose the Contempo Over the Cabinet Door Large Basket, which sells for $14, for my foil, wax paper and spray bottles. I love how all of my Spectrum products look, how my pantry and under the sink look and how organized I am!
