Life Style: Kitchen Organization

I have gotten the organizing bug. I have the kid's closets organized, and my next goal was the kitchen. My before photos are embarrassing! But I have to show you guys so you can see how much better the after looks. I do like organization, a lot. But it's hard to find the time and sometimes it seems impossible. Set a goal to do one section of your house at time. This weekend, I wanted to focus on the kitchen. And I'm still not done. But I am now motivated to keep going since I got a good start.

KITCHEN PANTRY

KITCHEN DRAWER

KID'S CABINET
AFTER (The before was terrible!)


OVERALL


Baskets: Dollar Tree * Labels: Avery 5394, Cardboard, and curling ribbon * Drawer wire baskets: Dollar Tree * Door Organizer: Container Store * Cabinet Tower: Container Store

TIPS:
Take everything out of pantry, drawer, or cabinets
Throw away the old stuff. You'll be amazed to see what you find in there!
Decide ahead of time what you want to put together (plastic utensils in one bin, crackers & cookies in another, etc.)
Make or buy labels
And start separating and organizing

You are on your way to and organized and better life!

Thanks for reading,

  1. I get that "bug" once in a while too. It does not last long though.
    I have to admit you did an excellent job, pantry looks like a store!
