New Year’s Resolutions: Kitchen Organizing Ideas
January 10, 2014
Drawers and Cabinets and Refridgerators…OH MY! There are many areas in the kitchen that could use some tidying up. Fortunately for you, Organize-It has countless items to make your kitchen more organized. Here are some of our favorites:
We all have many pieces of flatware, kitchen utensils and other tools that are often thrown in cluttered drawers, which makes them difficult to find. A great way to eliminate that clutter is with a kitchen drawer organizer, like this OXO Good Grips Utensil Organizer. This drawer tray can expand from 9 3/4 inches to 16 1/4 inches and features adjustable dividers to keep flatware neatly stacked.
Keeping your spices in order is a great way to reduce meal prep time and allows you to always know what seasonings you currently have in stock. While Organize-It carries many traditional spice racks, we are awfully fond of this Expand-A-Drawer Spice Organizer. Fitting in most standard kitchen drawers with 18-inch depths, this spice organizer can expand up to 24 inches wide and helps free up counter space that would be otherwise occupied by a free-standing spice rack.
For easy access, many cooks like to keep their kitchen utensils within reach, which is why this OXO Stainless Steel Utensil Holder is a great addition to any kitchen. Measuring 8.5 inches wide and 6.25 inches tall, this container can hold up to 16 utensils.
Proper refrigerator storage will allow you to effortlessly take inventory, which makes writing a grocery list a breeze. Containers, like this Acrylic Refrigerator Bin, keep similar items together, making your food or drinks easier to find.
Under shelf storage racks, which slide easily onto a shelf with no need for hardware, help you maximize your kitchen cabinet’s storage potential. Organize-It carries a variety of storage rack in different shapes and sizes, including this Silver Mesh Under Shelf Storage Basket. This storage basket measures 14 1/2 inches wide x 5 inches high x 9 1/2 inches deep.
Cabinet door organizers, like the Axis Chrome Over Cabinet Deep Storage Basket, are another simple-to-install, no hardware required way to add more storage to your cabinets. Simply rest the hooks of the basket atop of your cabinet door to hold all sorts of cleaning supplies, snacks or other random items your store in your kitchen.
If you’re really looking to go the extra mile in organizing your kitchen cabinets, this Chrome Two-Tier Sliding Cabinet Organizer is a wonder option to consider. Great for lower, hard to access cabinets, this system slides in and out of your cabinet, eliminating the need for stretching and straining to retrieve food or other contents.
Adding a beverage can organizer to your fridge, like this Chrome 12 can Beverage Dispenser, is a great way to keep your drinks cold while taking up little space. This beverage dispenser even has a top shelf to create additional storage space.
Pot racks are a wonderful way to store your cookware and free up cabinet space for other kitchen items. This Pot Rack with Bookshelf mounts to the wall and can hold up to 100 pounds.
