Organizing your kitchen cabinets may seem daunting at first, but the outcome is well worth the effort! Plus, there are some inexpensive ways you can simplify your cabinet organization, like installing pull-out organizers, spice racks, and other drawer and cabinet organizers. You can find most of these cabinet accessories under $100, although some pull-out organizers can cost up to $300.
Although you can take on organizing your kitchen all at once, we recommend taking it one section at a time. A great place to start is your kitchen pantry: take all of your food out so you can see what you have, and then throw out any expired food. From there, you can use clear plastic canisters to hold loose food items like flour, sugar, and salt. Use baskets or trays to organize items like granola bars and fruit snacks. If you’re looking for some extra space, hang a rack on your pantry door where you can store baking items like food coloring, sprinkles, and decorating tools.
Spice cupboards are notoriously known for being disorganized, which is why we recommend installing spice racks or other spice organizers. Be sure to put labels on unmarked spice jars and place your most-used spices in prime, accessible places.
For other parts of the kitchen, consider organizing your cans on stackable racks or installing pull-out organizers for your pans and other kitchen items. Don’t overlook your drawers either—a simple drawer organizer for your silverware can do wonders.
