Kitchen Cabinet Organization

Like us on Facebook for more tips.

An organized kitchen is very important in having an efficient kitchen. I am very fortunate to have a lot of cabinets. It makes it easier to keep neat and organized with more space. Having 12 children we need more of everything, cups, plates, etc. Even with all these cabinets I do keep some things that are only used occasionally in the basement.
This is one angle of my kitchen….
…and another angle. You could see how I hide clutter here.
I don’t know if you are like me, where every thing has to have a place, and I like when it is put back in it’s place. I really get annoyed when I can’t find something because it was not put back where it belongs, especially in the kitchen (and workshop room). It could take way longer to cook or bake if you cannot find the utensil, pan, or gadget that is needed for a particular recipe. I also like things very organized. I thought I would show you some of my cabinets and how I like to keep them.
This is our cabinet with cups and glasses. I do have a small drawer with small plastic cups for the little ones.


This corner cabinet has a glass door so it has to stay nice and neat.


This cabinet holds my food storage containers.


I really like these Pyrex  and  Anchor Storage Containers. A healthy alternative to plastic, glass food storage is non-toxic, dishwasher, microwave, & freezer safe. It’s the perfect choice for storing, reheating, and transporting food! (I am getting nothing from this I just really like them. I have had these for a long time.) I like how they stack in the cabinets, in the refrigerator and they could go in the oven or the toaster oven for easy reheating.  These containers could also be used in the microwave, but I explain why I don’t use a microwave here.

Here are more Anchor storage containers.

The blue and white tops are the tops for the Pyrex and Anchor containers.


These are my Tupperware Freezer mates.

This is my baking center. It has most of the items I need to bake.
These are my baking and cast iron pans.
Here are my pots and pans.

This is a cabinet that is off to the side that is in desperate need of cleaning out and organizing. I use this for glue, tape, staplers, phone books and other miscellaneous.
These next few pictures are of some of the drawers I have. This drawer is has my most used utensils. The spoons on the left are my most favorite. I use these every day! I really like the flat edge on the end, it is perfect for stirring and scraping the bottom of a pan, so nothing sticks. The crinkle cutter is great to cut carrots, cucumbers, and other vegetables for dips. It helps the dip stay on the vegetable.

This draw holds some of the utensils I do not use as often.

This drawer has small restaurant grade plates and mugs for the little ones. These are virtually unbreakable.
This drawer has my measuring cups, spoon, and other miscellaneous items.
In my turnaround cabinet I keep oils and vinegars on the top shelf and small appliances and gadgets on the bottom shelf.
These cabinet do not always look this neat. I try to keep them this way, but it doesn’t always happen.
I will be posting about our pantry and the cabinets I keep my canned goods and spices in.

Are you as crazy as I am about keeping your cabinets organized?
