Are your kitchen drawers a mess? Is it hard to find all your kitchen supplies when you need them? Here’s a simple fix for your kitchen with this simple kitchen organization storage idea.
Remember when I mentioned the whole no sugar thing?
It’s been over THREE WEEKS and guess what? I’m still going strong.
Can you even believe it?
I’ve actually cut out sugar and dairy and gluten and artificial sweeteners, too. Totally hardcore.
It’s been life-changing. I’ve lost 14 pounds. All of my inflammation has been reduced. My skin is so clear and in incredible news, I FEEL AMAZING.
Along the way, something else incredible happened. I’ve been cooking. You have to get a little creative when you are cutting out sugar and dairy and gluten and artificial sweeteners so you can’t help it. You have to cook. But here’s the thing—my kitchen isn’t really equipped for cooking. I spent at least 10 minutes trying to find everything in these junked up drawers that I needed to make a recipe.
So I organized.
And came up with the most amazing simple kitchen organization storage idea.
Let’s start with my challenge.
This drawer and a few other friends that look just like it.
All the kitchen stuff just jumbled up into a hot mess.
I was trying to find 1/4 cup the other day and literally almost pulled my hair out.
So I did what every unorganized person on the planet does when faced with an organizing dilemma.
I searched Pinterest.
And found the answer to my problems—this simple kitchen organization storage idea.
The answer was so easy it was brilliant.
Why not use the back of a cabinet door to organize all my measuring spoons and cups?
No more searching for 1/4 cup.
No more digging through drawers to find my measuring spoons.
No more disorganization with all my kitchen measuring utensils.
And the best part?
It’s so much easier than it sounds.
Here’s how I did it.
Simple Kitchen Organization Storage Idea
Step 1: find a cabinet
I chose the cabinet between the sink and the oven.
It has easy access to both and that’s where I stand when I bake something in the kitchen.
The doors of my cabinets are nice and wide which gave me extra room to hang things. You also want to choose a cabinet that doesn’t have shelves right up to the door—or if it does—just plan around them.
Step 2: find clear address labels
I found these labels at Walmart. You can see them here.
They are clear and are super sticky and work perfectly on your cabinets.
The best part about them is that you can run them through a standard inkjet printer.
Step 3: print off labels
Create the labels that you need in Word.
Print them off on a standard piece of paper and then line them up with the stickers on the page. This takes a little bit of adjusting in Word.
I actually printed them out on the backside of the stickers (the paper side) to see if they lined up.
step 4: find clear hooks
These hooks came from Walmart.
In retrospect, I think I might have chosen the ones with the metal hooks instead, but these worked fine.
They came in a package of three and I needed eight of them for this project.
You might need more or less depending on what you want to hang up.
step 5: hang up measuring cups and spoons
Then all you have to do is line up the hooks and hang them with the sticky tape.
Line up the labels and add them to the door.
Then simply hang up the measuring cups and spoons.
This is such a simple kitchen organization idea.
And in about 30 minutes you can go from this:
Isn’t it amazing all the ideas that come into your brain when it’s not clouded up with sugar?
Oh and I almost forgot. Bursts and bursts and bursts of energy just showed up, too.
If you thought I had energy before?
Watch out world.
Wait until you see all the fun ideas I’ve been working on for you. 🙂
