Home Kitchen Organization Ideas
It goes without saying that we all spend a lot of time in the kitchen. And, if you're like me that time is very well spent.

When I'm cooking I like to have things as organized as possible. I'm just one of those people that like to clean up as I go.

I think a well-organized kitchen makes the job go so much smoother. Do I have a perfectly organized kitchen? I don't think so but I do my best.

Home Kitchen Organization Ideas: For Spices

Here are some easy and inexpensive ideas that I use. Let's start with spices, we have a drawer full of spices and still not enough room for all of them. So, we picked up this handy wall mounted spice rack to ease the pain of digging through a drawer full of spices.

When it comes to spices there are many options. Below are just a few:

Home Kitchen Organization Ideas: K-Cup Storage

Everyone knows that we love our coffee. We make are our first pot of coffee in the morning with our 12-cup coffee maker.

That first pot doesn't last very long. As the day goes on we use our Keurig one cup coffee maker for a fresh cup of hot coffee. If you have a one cup machine then you also have K-Cups and need a place to keep them neat and handy. We use the carousel and keep right next to the Keurig.

Storing staples like flour, sugar, coffee and even snacks can take up a lot of room in your kitchen cabinets. If you have ample counter space consider using canisters. or, use the canisters inside the cabinet to declutter for more shelf space.

 Keeping these staples organized and handy on the counter makes them easy to use and frees up some much-needed cabinet space.

Countertop Canister Sets

Keeping kitchen drawers organized can sometimes be a daunting task. Silverware and cutlery can easily be organized with simple drawer dividers.

Drawer dividers are also very useful for that famous junk drawer that everybody has. Create separate compartments for pens, pencils, paperclips, rubber bands, and anything else you have in that junk drawer.

Easy Drawer Dividers 

Home Kitchen Organization Ideas: Easy Pantry Organization

Organize canned goods so there always handy with a stackable can rack. Use a sliding basket organizer to create more shelf space in the pantry. These pull out like a drawer and they're also stackable.

Another great idea for creating more space is an over the door rack for the pantry door. These are handy for storing spices, bottles, and cans.

I hope some of these ideas are helpful to you. We have incorporated many of these space saving ideas into our kitchen it just makes things so much easier.
