Organizing Kitchen Cabinets


I had a reader, email and ask how to organize kitchen cabinets. Here are some of the tips I sent:

  • Use a rack for your bowls and small plates (big plates if you have the room)
  • Pans can go on a rack on the wall or nested in a cabinet
  • If you have non-stick plans, put paper towels between pots and pans
  • The lids can go into a slot organizer like for mail
  • Cutlery needs a drawer/utensil organizers to keep knives, forks, spoons, etc. separated
  • Glasses can be placed upside down in the cabinet
  • Spices are good on a lazy susan in the cabinet
  • Boards can go next to the microwave if they don’t fit in drawers
  • Daily small appliances can go on the counter
  • Less used appliances can go into the cabinets
  • Cookbooks can go on a high shelf or a bookshelf on the wall. I would suggest though that favorite recipes be put in the computer. Most cookbooks can be given away unless you use them a lot.
  • Have a recyclable station in the basement or garage
  • The most important thing is to not have lots of stuff in the kitchen you don’t use

What tips help you in the kitchen?
