60. Kitchen Drawer Dividers

One quick and easy way to reorganize your kitchen is to incorporate drawer dividers wherever you can. They help to keep similar items alike and together. However, it is vital to make sure that you are maintaining their organization. It helps direct your hand to the exact utensil or tool that you are looking for by remaining organized and together. The drawer dividers also help prevent clutter by giving each item a specific space while also minimizing sliding around in the drawer. You can not only use these drawer dividers for your regular utensils but also your baking utensils.

Drawer dividers are an excellent and easy way to add some structure throughout the drawers in your kitchen. You can not only use them to keep your regular eating utensils in their place, but you can use them for your other drawers as well. Maybe you have that one junk drawer in your kitchen that has a collection of items you just don’t know where to keep or how to keep it organized? Add a drawer divider and put similar items together to create some organization and structure. You will feel so much better knowing you can see what is in there.

59. Labels for Everything

Kitchen labels are an easy and effective way to reorganize your kitchen. You will find immediate satisfaction by knowing what everything is and how much of it you have left. That can be incredibly satisfying when you identify what is needed on your next grocery run or ensure that you grab flour instead of sugar when you’re doing some baking. By adding labels to your kitchen items, you are making it a lot easier on yourself. You can visualize what you have, where it goes, and what you need. Labeling restores calm, and although it might seem ridiculous, it is incredibly calming.

While you can visually see a clear container’s contents, adding labels to each of them is even more aesthetically appealing. You can label everything from your cereal to dried goods to baking ingredients. You will feel more organized and structure while also ensuring you are grabbing the right one right off the bat. Spices are also another large kitchen item to label. It can make cooking so much smoother because you don’t have to question whether you are grabbing the wrong spice. Labeling everything is a great way to organize your kitchen and give yourself some peace.

58. Think About Counterspace 

Part of reorganizing and decluttering your kitchen means that everything has a home. That helps prevent clutter and ensures organization. The key is that when you take something out of its home, that it gets put back. For instance, you can get bins and bowls to put your peppers, lemons, and limes in, which provides a home for each item. A utensil canister helps ensure that all the utensils are kept tidy and in their place. Although it may seem contradictory to add more bins, bowls, or canisters, it can help maintain organization and provide such a satisfactory feeling.

The great news is that you can find plenty of bins and bowls to match whatever your home decor is. When items don’t have a home, they often find themselves thrown in the nearest drawer or cabinet. The downside to this is that it further adds to clutter and chaos. You will feel so much better if every item has a specific place to be stored, and you ensure that when it is taken out of that home, it is also put back there. Otherwise, the next time you reach for that item, you might not even know where you last put it.

Another great way to reorganize is to hang up your utensils. Shutterstock

57. Hang Your Utensils

If your cabinet or drawer space is limited, don’t worry! You can still have a lot of organization in your kitchen. One of the quickest and easiest ways to reorganize is to hang up your cooking utensils. Add a bar with some hooks where each utensil has its own place. That satisfying way helps you see each utensil without shuffling them around in the drawer or canister to get the exact one you need. Hang anything from your cake spatulas, soup ladles, and even your cheese grater. That is a neat way to keep your kitchen organized and clean while making the most of a small space.

Hanging up your utensils is a great way to visualize what you have when you need it. It helps to maintain organization and structure within your kitchen. It is also a great organization option when you have a smaller budget or space. You can take any rod, even a curtain rod, and any hooks to add to your utensils. There are so many different styles of rods or hooks that you can find one that fits your specific decor style. Your friends and family are sure to ask questions about it when they come over! It is a great way to organize your utensils, kitchen, and even your mind. 

Kitchen towels can often become cluttered and take up more space than necessary. Shutterstock

56. Organize Your Kitchen Towels

You can quickly reorganize your kitchen by straightening up your kitchen towel drawer. Many times, people lay them on top of one another, limiting the number of towels in the drawer and creating a hassle when you’re trying to get them out. Laying them on a slight slant allows you to see all of the kitchen towels at once neatly. It also makes it easier to pull one out at a time to use. You’ll be shocked to find out how many kitchen towels you can fit into one drawer. Utilizing this easy organization hack will be immediately satisfying.

This organization tip is one that is not only so simple but so satisfying. If you don’t have a lot of drawer space, it is crucial to ensure you are maximizing every inch of the space that you do have. When you stack your towels in a drawer, there might be a lot of unused space. The good news is, this can be fixed just on how you organize the towels in the drawer. Rather than piling them on top of one another in a vertical pile, try adding them to the drawer on a slight slant. You’ll be stunned at how much more you can fit in the same drawer.

55. Put Your Spices On A Rack

We have talked about many different ways to store your spices, including lazy Susans and pull-out spice racks. Another easy way to keep your spices and reorganize your kitchen is to add a small shelf, or two, by your stove. Easily and neatly store your spices on the rack. Not only will you be pleased with the way it looks, but it will be easily accessible while you’re preparing your favorite meal. When you’re done with the spice, neatly put it back in its place to ensure your kitchen space stays neat and organized. You might have to get more than one shelf if you’re a true chef!

Spices are a hot topic in the kitchen! Perhaps it is because they are often used with most meals, and so their ability to be accessible and organized functionally is a big deal. There are many ways and options to manage all of your spices, including the lazy Susan, pull out rack, and on a wall rack. The wall rack is a great choice if you are limited on counter or cabinet space. It also allows you to see which spices you have quickly. If you want to take it one step further, add labels to your wall rack’s spices for optimal organization. 

When reorganizing your kitchen, organize by use. Shutterstock

54. Reorganize By Use and Category 

You may wonder what this means. It means to create zones for storage containers, pots and pans, and cooking utensils. For instance, inside your pantry, put all of the noodles together and all of the dried baking ingredients. You might also wish to dedicate a specific space or cabinet to your baking ingredients or bakeware. There might include storing your cookie sheets, bread pans, and cooling racks in a distinct and separate cabinet than your pots and pans. If you organize your kitchen items by their use, you will instantly feel more organized and have an overall sense of calmness because you will know exactly where everything is.

Some people already organize their spaces by use to some extent. However, have you ever really taken the time to organize your kitchen tools, cookware, and items by use? I always thought I had until I pulled everything out of my pantry and realized how wrong I was. It might take some initial time upfront to reorganize your space, but doing so will pay off in the long run. There is also a great, free way to declutter and provide organization to your area and mind. Your kitchen space will function so much smoother when you put similar items together.

53. Purge Your Pantry

You might find yourself feeling overwhelmed when you look at your pantry. Perhaps you don’t have any sense of organization or structure. One satisfying way to reorganize your kitchen and reset the tone is to purge your pantry. Spend 30 minutes and go through your pantry. Start by pulling out any expired items. Then sweep through your canned goods to determine what you should keep versus what you might be able to donate to a local food pantry. After purging anything that you don’t need, start organizing by grouping the remaining food by their category. You might have a section for baking goods and another that is full of snacks.

There is another way to declutter your mind and your space that costs absolutely nothing. It is a great starting point so that you can see where you are starting. As you begin to purge your pantry and organize your space, you can determine if you need any more plastic containers, bins, or labels to finish off your organizing. You might visualize that you can add some wall baskets or shelves inside the pantry to get the functionality you desire. It can be overwhelming at first, but it is essential to stick with it, and the reward will be well worth it!

52. Reach High for Your Cleaning Supplies

We have talked a little bit about hanging up your pots and pans as well as your cooking utensils, but what about your cleaning supplies? You can easily and quickly install a curtain rod in your pantry with a few hooks to hang up some of your most commonly used cleaning supplies. Hang up your broom, dustpan, and even a lint roller for easy access. Incorporate a smaller rod under your kitchen sink to hang up the bottles of cleaning supplies that are often left without a home. Not only will it give those items a home, but it will provide you with peace of mind knowing where things are when you need them most.

There is another budget-friendly way to organize your kitchen and ensure that every item has a home. You might even have an extra curtain rod at home already. However, if you don’t, you can visit any local dollar store to purchase the curtain rod and hooks. Many curtain rods are adjustable, so they can easily be altered to fit the specific space you are looking to house them. The next time you need to grab the broom and dustpan, you can quickly grab it off its hook to use. When you are done, you can put it right back. It is so satisfying to keep things organized.

51. Utilize Every Square Inch

One of the main points of reorganizing your kitchen is being aware of every square inch. You want to utilize and maximize the most of your space, no matter how big or small it is. Also, you can try storing your appliances in deep drawers or pull out shelves to free up as much counter space as possible. You will be shocked how good it will feel to give everything a good home while also allowing you to feel decluttered and organized. Appliances can often be a pain to store, but knowing how to do it effectively is a huge relief.

Add a rustic shelf to one wall with some hooks, and you have an excellent display for your mugs!

You’ll be surprised at how a simple change like this will make your kitchen more user friendly. This trick is an inexpensive way to organize your kitchen, too – we love these great budget solutions. If you have beautiful mugs, use them to your benefit and make a feature out of them.

Putting your mugs on display is a fantastic way to house your collection. While you might prefer to have all of your mugs be alike, you might find joy in having a variety of cups in your collection. Perhaps you received some of them as gifts from loved ones or friends, or maybe one is a hand-me-down from your grandparents. Wherever they come from, they may hold a special sentimental value to you. Displaying your mugs on hooks not only frees up a lot of counters, cabinets, or shelf space, but it can also be a conversation starter with your guests.

49. Get Creative with Utensil Storage

Throwing your ladles and serving spoons into a big drawer gets the job done, but why not put them on display? This stylish and unique way of storing your utensils without them taking up extra space can spice up a kitchen. It is all about finding beauty in ordinary things, such as placing our utensils on display. It will give you an extra drawer or two for storage – and this adds up to quite a lot, especially in a small kitchen. Wall space is underutilized in a kitchen – here’s your chance to make up for it.

Everyone has kitchen utensils. Some people have more than others. No matter how many soup ladles or pancake spatulas you have, it is still imperative that you keep them organized and stored properly.

The greatest part is that storing your kitchen utensils can still vibe with whatever your home decor style is. You can add a white farmhouse canister or a metal one for a more modern look.

48. Try a Magnetic Strip

Knife blocks are great, but you could have more counter space with a simple magnetic strip. Get one that’s strong enough to hold the weight of your cutting knives. Just be careful about reaching for the right end. Placing an item like this just above your cutting area in the kitchen is impressive. You have more counter space, and you still have the knives right there for your cooking convenience. You can order these easily online and have them installed in your kitchen in just a few minutes. They also add quite a nice aesthetic feature to the wall of your kitchen.

Purchasing a magnetic strip for your kitchen knives is becoming increasingly popular. It is a great way to store your kitchen knives while also providing an incredibly modern look and feel. The downside is to ensure you are extremely careful which end you grab and who may have access to the knives. That is an especially great option if you find yourself using the same handful of knives each night. You can store the most popular two or three knives that you regularly use and avoid taking up too much space on either your counter or in your drawer.

47. Squeeze In Narrow Shelving

Look for ways of using all the space in your kitchen by finding some narrow shelves on wheels. These can be placed between your fridge and your counter space; they slide right out when you need it — almost like a secret drawer! Having storage on wheels is ideal – you can move it to where you need it to be. There are also inner cupboard portable storage units you can have installed if you don’t have space for a shelving system on wheels. These storage units are fantastic for storing all sorts of things: fruit, drinks, extra kitchen items, and even spices.

Narrow shelving can be incredibly appealing to someone who may have a smaller kitchen or a lot of narrow spaces that are essentially wasted space. However, it’s essential to have a smaller space to truly maximize every inch of it and get the most out of your kitchen. The narrow shelves are a great alternative to store snacks, cups, sports drinks, or those fancy glasses that only come out a few times a year. If you are looking for ideas on how to incorporate narrow shelving into your space, check out Pinterest for many options.

46. Buy a Roll-Up Drying Rack

You don’t want an awkward, crate-like thing on your counter all day. This roll-up drying rack can be kept out of the way until you need it. Just unfurl and place it over your sink for your glasses to dry on. Drying racks also aren’t the most admirable display feature, so this is something that you can use when you need it and put away when you don’t. If you already have a drying rack on your counter that you do need – this is also a fantastic option for extra drying space when you have a dinner party with lots of dishes to clean.

This modern drying rack is an excellent way to reorganize your kitchen space. Typical drying racks are large and can take up a significant amount of kitchen counter space. Not only does this roll-up drying rack not take up any counter space, but it also allows any excess water to drip down into the sink. The best part is unlike traditional drying racks that tend to sit out on the countertop, the roll-up drying rack can be easily folded or rolled for easy storage. It is not only more visually appealing, but it works even better than the typical drying rack.

45. Grab for an Under-Counter Wine Rack

This rack can be installed quickly on the underside of a counter and is a great way to keep your wine on hand. If you’ve got a big wine collection, just add more racks the entire length of the counter and put your bottles on display. That is such a creative use of space, and you can easily just pull out a bottle to enjoy while you are cooking. You can also use this to store the bottles you want to drink and find another spot that isn’t as accessible for ones you aren’t using. It will be a great way to free up counter space.

Maybe you enjoy a glass of wine after a long day of work or perhaps when you are hosting a small gathering of your closest friends.

44. Look at Your Measuring Tools

Tablespoons, teaspoons, and measuring cups — oh my! These awkward yet necessary kitchen items can take up much space in your drawers and cupboards. By installing some hooks and hanging them up on the inside of your cupboard door, you’re freeing up much space. Add some cute decals so that you know where everything should belong. You could even add them to a beautiful chalkboard where you can write up your favorite baking recipes. This rustic storage solution is stunning to look at as well as being practical. Hanging your measuring tools up will allow for easy access, and you won’t spend time fumbling for the exact measuring device.

If you are limited on cabinet or drawer space, hanging items up is a great option. Measuring cups are a sore subject as they often get thrown in the cabinet and shuffled around as more items get tossed in. If you don’t want to hang up your measuring cups out in the open, you could also consider hanging them up on the inside of your cabinet or cabinet door to help conceal them while also keeping them organized. You might even wish to go as far as labeling your measuring cups to identify which is the one that you need quickly.

43. Purchase a Handy Wine Glass Holder

You’ve seen these at bars, and they’re an excellent way to show off your wine glasses while still maximizing your cupboards’ space. Include a strip of LED mood lighting, and these glasses can shine. Get ready for the compliments on your simple kitchen upgrade. Another bonus about storing wine glasses this way is that they won’t collect as much dust, which means less cleaning for you before your guests arrive. Wine glasses deserve to be displayed, and this way is genius. You can even install them in a bar area if you have one to create the whole vibe and ambiance.

42. Consider a Bottle Organizer

It’s hard to keep track of your water bottles and thermoses in your home. Open a cupboard, and they all crash down. A simple plastic rack gives you a great way to keep them all in one place and can be easily moved around when you need the space. We all need to be drinking more water each day, and having it organized might make you more inclined to do this. It’s incredible the psychological effect that organization has on us. You can even keep this inside a cupboard if you don’t want it on display but know that it’s all in the correct place.

If you have kids, this can be a great way to get them started on their organization journey. Encourage them to take one from the organizer and then put them away in their organized spot. This simple water bottle organizer can help ensure that each bottle stays in its space and doesn’t continue rolling around in the drawer or cabinet. While it may seem contradictory to add an acrylic organizer, it will help create structure and organization to satisfy you. If you have many water bottles, you might even want to stack the organizers to maximize the space.

41. A Must-Have Kitchen Caddy

Dish detergent, sponges, brushes, rags, and more! Shoving them behind your faucet when you’re done cleaning isn’t the best way to store them — it only creates a smelly, mildew mess. Instead, get a nice caddy to keep everything neat. Get one that can clip onto the edge of your sink and has drainage holes for them to drip dry. We all tend to leave our sponges and washcloths lying there. Instead, this will allow them to dry correctly and save precious sink space. It only takes up a tiny bit of space in the corner of your sink.

Whoever invented the kitchen caddy did so with organization in mind. Have you ever got done cleaning and just threw the towel or washcloth over the sink? Then it falls into the sink. Overall, it just never feels truly clean or organized. Getting a simple kitchen caddy will give you satisfaction like you never knew you needed. It is truly a game-changer when it comes to kitchen cleanliness and organization. You can easily store your towels, brushes, and sponges all in one space without worrying about them dripping in your freshly cleaned sink or floor. Don’t miss out on this must-need kitchen item.

40. Put Some Shelves in the Fridge

It sounds like a weird idea, but putting more shelves in your refrigerator can provide you with added space to stack your favorite drink on top of each other. Get creative with shapes and sizes so that you can maximize the space in your fridge even more. There are lots of different types of storage available to order. One of our favorite options is the can holders. These tend to always roll around the fridge; we all had lost one or two cans when they dropped onto the floor and exploded! Get one or two shelves to keep your fridge clean and your cans organized.

Fridge space is so vital and even more so if you have a smaller fridge and kitchen. Utilizing and maximizing the space that you do have is so important to feeling organized. By adding some shelves into the fridge, you can ensure that everything has a place and that the refrigerator items remain organized. The can holders are an awesome way to keep your pop cans organized and ensure one doesn’t go rolling out on accident. They also free up valuable space for other food items. The best part is that these shelves are versatile and can be used in the pantry for canned goods.

39. Order Fridge Suspension Shelves

You can also get these fridge drawers to add as another storage option in this space. We love these because they are so simple to add but add excellent storage space. For example, fresh fruit that you don’t want rolling around in the lower fruit drawer. You can also add these to all levels of your fridge and save space and use it in a much smarter way. They are also easy to remove and clean so that your produce is always kept fresh and safe. Just clip them on, and you’re ready to have a much more organized fridge.

Often there is a lot of unused space in the fridge. You might put something on the shelf and leave six or more inches above it. When you are already limited on space, that unused space is essential. Clipping in these shelves that can go underneath the shelves helps to ensure you are maximizing all of the space you have. What a perfect way to keep your fruits or vegetables fresh and easily accessible! They are so easily accessible that they might even encourage your kids to grab for a healthier snack instead of those chips in the pantry – one can dream!

38. Don’t Forget About Storage Containers

Having a bunch of slightly opened containers of cereal and chips don’t stack very well together. Instead, invest in some airtight storage containers for your assorted goodies. They can be organized more efficiently and take up less space. If you are feeling crafty, they can be labeled to know what is in each one. Labeling is the organization must-do of the year; it looks good and helps you keep organized. This simple trick will also help your food last longer instead of going stale from leaving the bag open. Your pantry and kitchen will remain organized, and you will enjoy being able to see all of your ingredients!

Storage containers in your pantry serve a dual purpose. They help to keep you organized and also help to ensure that items remain fresh. You don’t have to worry about bags ripping open or spilling because they will be in an airtight container. Visual seeing all of your ingredients and how much you have left of each is hugely satisfying. You will be able to quickly find what you’re searching for, use it, and then put it right back in its place. Using storage containers will help eliminate some of the chaos of digging through your pantry for the right item.

37. Hang Out with Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets can be a great way to display your products without having them be in the way. A few simple hooks in your ceiling and you’re ready to hang your vegetables and fruits. Just make sure you keep an eye on them so that they don’t become overripe. This hack is such a smart way to save on space and create a somewhat decorative piece in your kitchen. Your guests will be sure to ask where you got the idea. The hanging baskets also put the fruit on full display to snack on them when you go into the kitchen for chocolate or treat items.

There are so many different hanging baskets that you can choose which goes with the decor in your home. You can also choose from the number of baskets that you want. You might only want one or two baskets, whereas someone else may prefer three. That helps reduce how much space you are taking up on your counter or in your pantry. Furthermore, it allows you to visualize how much you have left of each item. What you want to add to the hanging baskets is entirely up to you. You can add fruits, vegetables, or maybe even a plant to the mix.

36. Buy a Few Leveled-Drawers

Do you have a lot of spices and seasonings? (You should!) Are you tired of keeping everything in a dirty, dark cupboard to pull out every container to find the right one? A stackable basket drawer makes it easy for you to see what you need so you can get back to slaying it in the kitchen. Spices are vital to our cooking experience, and it takes away from it when you get frustrated having to sort through the entire cupboard to find the Paprika. This kitchen hack is also a good idea for other items like vinegar and dressings.

Cabinets are often a source of wasted space. You might be able to put stuff in the bottom shelves, but what about all of that other space on the top or back? One way to maximize the space is to add leveled-drawers. You might even want to add ones that slide out for easy access. The addition of pull-out and leveled drawers will create a sense of satisfaction that will be unmatched. Can you imagine going and grabbing what you want without having to dig through a cluttered mess? If you’re like the rest of us, it can often seem like a lost cause.

35. Get a Spinning Spice Racks

Another option for spice storage is a spinning spice rack. You can find these on Amazon or in your local kitchen store. There are ones that spin around like a lazy Susan or spin around like a Ferris wheel. If you’re looking to save space, opt for the Ferris wheel style, as this is narrower. If you have some counter space or cupboard space to spare, the lazy Susan is a great way to have all spices on display and easily move through them without getting irritated or making a mess. You’ll be able to keep your spices and cabinet space clean and clear with this organized rack.

Spice racks are trendy and come with many options depending on the size of the space you are working with. Spinning spice racks are an awesome alternative for a smaller or more narrow area. Another huge benefit is that they allow the user to see all of the spices they are working with and give them all a space. Having an identified space for each item is key to keeping a kitchen clutter-free and organized. You’ll be able to quickly put your favorite spices on one side for easy access and add those that are less used to the opposite side.

34. Create a Mug Closet

This easy DIY project will keep your mugs out of the way so that you can fit more in your cupboards. The shape of these particular cups doesn’t make them very conducive for maximizing your space, so hanging them gives you more cupboard space. By maximizing the space in this cupboard, you can add other dinnerware such as plates, bowls, or side plates. You could also add more mugs here if necessary, but hopefully, you have space to hang them all up. That also keeps them cleaner. It will also give you a chance to sort out that mug cupboard you’ve been avoiding.

If you don’t have much cabinet space, a hanging coffee rack is a great option for storing your coffee mugs while also leaving a good amount of space for other items. You can take a curtain rod made to fit your cabinet’s size and get some decorative hooks. Some people choose to use shower hooks, but any hooks will work! That is a great opportunity to choose some hooks that emphasize your decor style. Next, hang each coffee mug carefully and allow them to be on display and properly organized. You will be amazed at how much space this frees up!

33. Make Storage Inside the Pantry

Another DIY trick to maximize your kitchen is the use of under-sink storage. Attach magazine organizers to the cupboard doors under your sink and ta-da! Instant storage for your box of foil, wax paper, trash bags, Ziploc baggies, and more. In particular, this cupboard becomes a mess so quickly, and we need to start using better organizational habits down here ASAP! Magazine holders work a dream, and you can use them for all sorts of items thanks to their depth and height. The magazine holders will help clear up a lot of shelf or drawer space by making the most of your area.

There are so many items around the house that can serve a dual function in organizing and decluttering. Many office supplies such as a magazine holder or file divider are beneficial when reorganizing a kitchen. Using the magazine holders can help free up a drawer or cabinet while maximizing the space inside a cabinet door. The next time you throw out an old household item, try thinking about whether you can repurpose it. I am not encouraging you to hoard items, but rather, think about their potential and whether they can be better served in another area of the house.

32. Have Refrigerator Storage Success

Besides the wired crates, you can also take these magazine organizers into your fridge to create more shelves. If you have smaller, fragile foods, place them accordingly so they don’t get crushed. As you get more and more into organization, you’ll start finding items around your home that can be repurposed for organizational purposes. Fridge storage solutions are so important and help you keep track of what is being used and what isn’t. There is often so much unused space in the fridge, so adding a shelf helps make the most out of the entire space.

The kitchen glass storage jars are an easy way to add some organization and style to your kitchen space. These jars can be put out on display on the counter, in the cabinet, or even in the pantry. My favorite part is seeing the items inside without having to open the box or jar. It helps you remain organized while in the kitchen and helps you prepare when you are heading to the grocery store as you can easily and quickly see how much you have of each ingredient. The glass storage jars can also serve as a piece of decor.
