    Start by getting rid of what you do not use, be honest with yourself and elicit a friend to help then help her do the same, use things to store other things like a big enough crock or pitcher for utensils, a rack on a door for spices, a folder for recipes, and always clean up when done making a mess, take the extra 5 minutes to clean up will save a lot of heartache the next day.

    Lazy Susan’s for my spices. Dry erase board used to write down items as they are used for the next shopping trip. Organize cans in rows or similar item so that items are easy to find and see when your almost out of something.

    Have specific places for things, clean up after cooking and put everything back in their place.

    I try to clean out one drawer per week. This keeps the clutter down. We also have 5 recycling bins in the garage. This encourages us to be organized and efficient with large items!

    I like to put the cookbook or other printed recipe that I’m working on in a zip top bag. This ensures that my cookbook stays clean and new looking. Voila’!

    My tip is to tackle decreasing clutter little by little. Sometimes, clutter accumulates so quickly it can be overwhelming and very stressful. I try to keep all my most used pans in the nearest cabinet to the stove. After a year of not using a particular pan, it’ll go to Goodwill as I move another step towards a simple, stress-free kitchen!

    wash your dishes up as you go so there won’t be a huge mess when you are finished making your meal… you can also put away your spices, etc. as you are finished with them to keep clutter manageable; thanks!

    I now make a list on the outside of the fridge of the perishable items as I put them in the fridge and cross them off the list as I use them. This has helped me to remember what I had to use and prevents me from finding spoiled items once it’s too late.

    Using the back of our pantry door, we store snack items in the see-through pockets of an over-the-door organizer. It utilizes extra space and keeps the treats out-of-sight, yet easily accessible for everyone, eliminating search time.

    I go through my kitchen every few years, and any items I don’t use often, I put a yellow dot/sticker on. If I use it, the dot comes off. After six months, I stick a red dot on the same items. After six months on red, I sell/donate/give away the item. I figure if it doesn’t get used in a calendar year, I don’t need it.

    I also use breakfast trays to corral items and small appliances on the countertops, particularly messy area. I have a breakfast tray under my coffee maker, and I have my creamer and sugar, canister of coffee, spoon rest, and toaster on top. It helps corral crumbs and makes the area look neater. It’s also a great way to store the tray without wasting cabinet space!

    I use dish racks to store bakeware to avoid clutter and shoe racks behind pantry door to store spices, condiments, snacks etc.

    I love my spice drawer. I know where they all are and can I find whatever I need.

    Dry erase boards help me stay organized . . . one on the freezer with a list of what is in the freezer, another in the pantry to list what I need to purchase once I am getting low on an item. I also use them to make my “to do” lists, as phone message center, and to leave message for family, the dog sitter and myself!

    When i put groceries in the cabinets,
    I put likes together in rows;
    it saves a lot of time searching & making
    a shopping list.

    Organize and make sure when you use something it goes back where and how you find it, also I have a junk drawer for little things that really have no place.

    I just love the sticker idea, I have some appliances I just don’t use.I have a little churn on counter to put utinsels in, I use all the time. A drawer for the rest.

    A recent redo of my kitchen brought to light that my HUGE, cabinet style spice rack had no where to go. I cleaned it up and it fit perfectly at the end of the cabinets, underneath the counter. Now my spices still have a home, and the rack (which was an eyesore on the wall) is tucked away where you barely notice it.

    I cut out recipes from magazines and file them according to the meal; such as, breakfast, dinner, lunch, apps, dessert, in a binder with plastic sleeves that I can just drop them into.

    I like to use the shoe pocket organizers for alot of stuff…they keep things in place, and also keep all my paperwork that I need for the week right where I can just grab it. They are great for many things besides just shoes….get creative..

    Carson. I agree that Ryan`s article is really cool, last tuesday I got a gorgeous Chevrolet when I got my check for $6643 this last month and over ten-k this past month. with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job Ive ever had. I actually started 7-months ago and practically straight away was making at least $81, p/h. I use this web-site,……….. BIT40.ℂOℳ

    I clean out a couple of drawers or a section of cabinets, not the entire kitchen at once. Cleaned out my kitchen linin drawer last weekend and found really pretty Longaberger towels I forgot about!

    I keep my spices in a drawer with labels on the lids so I can find them easily. I also have my pantry set up with like items together. Having food items organized saves time and money because it keeps me from hunting things down and from buying extra items that I already have.

    When I am standing at my stove cooking, I have my cooking utensils, oven gloves, pots and pans, all within an arms reach. I also keep my spices on a small lazy susan. I have been trying to become better organized because it not only saves time, it also saves money. This wall organizer would be perfect!

    My best kitchen organizational tip used to be: keep my husband OUT of my kitchen, except for eating and washing dishes, because he simply cannot put things back in the drawer or cabinet where they belong.

    Although we’ve been married 45 years, for reasons unknown to me, he will put away the dinnerware on the wrong shelf, or put knives in a drawer instead of the knife rack, or put spice jars in the cabinet next to measuring cups and baking utensils rather than storing with the rest of spices. He even stuffed a colander in the broiler drawer of our stove, so it is wedged there and we cannot open that drawer. I’ve spent a day hunting for the salad bowls that he “couldn’t fit on the turntable shelf” where they resided for years– finally found them in the laundry room cabinet, in front of a long-missing cookie jar. i know he doesn’t have memory loss any other place than this kitchen, and after 45 years together I learned “dont sweat the small stuff”, so I bear with his little foible that he just wants to rearrange things in a way that makes sense to Him. And the benefit I reaped from this is that I can sit down after dinner, as He washes dishes and puts it all away–so a little disorganization is worth it!

    For the Martha Stewart wall manger, I like to keep as much as possible, food, small utensils, dish towels and pot holders, etc in clear see through containers so do not have to keep opening things to find what needed.

    empty drawers, have in box and what you do not pull back in in 6 months donate- same with little appliances

    My best organizational tip is my spice manager app on my phone. I have all of my spices on hand loaded into the app so I never purchase a spice I already own. Plus, the app allows me to keep track of how much is left that way when I’m at the store I can check to see which spices are low and restock!

    If you find yourself shifting clutter around, ask yourself, “Do I need this? Am I using it?” My basic rule of thumb is that if you touch it, decide if it belongs in the kitchen and if it’s worth the space it’s taking up. The kitchen is valuable real estate!

    I made a chalkboard/bulletin board out of our pantry room door using chalkboard paint and corkboard. Helps a lot!

    I have identical sized glass jars with lids and put most everything in them. Spaghetti, cereal, flour, sugar, chocolate chips, raisins, everything, even down to the junk drawer which has smaller reused glass spice jars that house rubber bands, nails, twisty ties, paper clips, etc. No more digging through the junk drawer to find the little item I am searching for! I can see everything so I know right away when I need to purchase something else and it makes my life SO much easier! I also use the plastic shelves that look like stairs so that you can easily see all the rows of jars. I also use a large plastic shoe holder for paper towel storage so I can just grab a roll when I need it. It frees up tons of space and I know immediately when I’m out!

    I put magnet boards inside the cupboards = no cluttered fridge magnets. I also get clear tupaware boxes and label them rice/pasta, candy, baking, chips, etc. then all those items go in the boxes in the pantry= so much easier than having every individual item on the shelves.

    I bring my mail in the house daily and read/look through all of it over the recycling bin. I either put it in the recycling bin, shred, file, or put it in the to pay basket which I sort every Thursday when I pay bills. I have also found that a pen and mounted tablet that hangs on the inside of the pantry is a great way to keep track of my staple purchases. When I use an item, I write it on the list, and when I am going grocery shopping I grab the list and replenish what has been used.

    Think outside of the box when organizing your kitchen and make use of what others would consider wasted space. I used little dollar store pencil holders (the little metal baskets), hung them on my pantry door and they hold my spices perfectly. I also use a restaurant style ticket holder above my stove to hang the recipe I am working on so I can easily see it, but don’t chance spilling food on it.

    My best organizational tip is something that has taken me a bit of time to learn because I am always attracted to new kitchen gear and gadgets. Look for items that can be used in a variety of ways, not things that have a single use purpose. Less to store and you really get value out of the things you own.

    Since I am not very tall, I put round turntables on the top shelves of my cabinets. This helps me to reach all of the items easily and I am able to maximize my storage; especially for all those tall vinegar jars, bbq sauces, cooking oils etc.
