{Let’s Organize: 2012} Kitchen Cabinets: Recap & Link Party

21 Jan

Week Two of  Let’s Organize: 2012 is COMPLETE! And, finally, I can breathe a bit easier when I open my kitchen cabinets. What a difference small changes can make!

To give you an idea of what my drawers and cabinets looked like pre-project, here’s a quick “before & after” for you:


Knives on top of tongs… on top of spatulas… on top of whisks. Messy, and not super safe either. Who wants to stick their hand in a messy drawer full of sharp knives? Uh, NOT me.


MUCH better! Still nowhere near perfect, but I love the fact that the Core Bamboo Knife Organizer I found on clearance @ HomeGoods {for $7!} has made the drawer so much easier to use!

Let’s take in the some of the other organizing success, shall we?

Silverware = Check!

Organized Dishes.

Cupcake Liners are all stored neatly in a jar now, thanks to a brilliant idea I found via Pinterest!

Here are some of the products I fell in love with this week while in organization-mode. Some of them, I used in my kitchen. Others didn’t work for my space, but I’m seriously in love with them. Maybe they’ll work for yours.

1. A Bakware Organizer from Crate & Barrel – because I love the idea of not having to take ALL of my baking sheets out in order to find the one I need.

2. A Madesmart Utensil Tray from the Container Store – I love the look of the clear trays {especially if you’re thinking about lining your drawers with colorful paper!}.

3. A Classic In-Drawer Knife Block from Core Bamboo. Safe & Functional is always a Win-Win.

4. Chevron Drawer Liners from Hammocks and High Tea – these are a splurge at $25, but BOY are they adorable!

5. The OXO Softworks 11″ Turn Table from Target – perfect for storing spices, frostings, sprinkles & more in your baking cabinet.

6. The Simple Human Medium Pull-Out Cabinet Organizer from the Container Store – also a total splurge, but I am in love with the functionality. Keep the under-the-sink space clean and organized, AND easy to reach with the bonus slide-out feature.
