Just remember, the first and most important step of organization is to DECLUTTER first so you aren’t just organizing clutter and stuff you don’t need or use anymore.
First clean out everything you do not use. Do you really use all 15 of those empty whipped topping containers? What about those 20 coffee cups? Could you narrow that number down to 5 or 6?
If you simply MUST keep them, at least do some clever organizing with baskets to keep it all neat:
Next, see if you could change things around to save you time. Are the pots and pans close to the stove? Are the glasses close to the refrigerator? Are your dishtowels and dishcloths near the sink? These may be obvious suggestions, but sometimes we just put things anywhere and leave them there, even though it’s not the best place.
The “best place” is where you will be able to find the kitchen items you use most often.

If your cabinet space is limited or you have a small kitchen, try these simple organization tips for small spaces.

Here’s a BRILLIANT idea for using cheap Dollar Stores sticky hooks to organize all those little attachments for your kitchen appliances.
Attach an organizer to the inside of your cabinet door for aluminum foil and plastic wrap.

Use pretty baskets and bins to organize – it’s really helps to KEEP things organized when you love how beautiful it looks!
Remember, the whole point of decluttering and organizing your kitchen is to have LESS stuff AND be more organized – but that does NOT require you spend a ton of money to DO that, ok?
When it comes to organizing your kitchen for CHEAP, the possibilities are endless. Most of these organizing items are fairly inexpensive and can be found at any Dollar Store if you’re on a tight budget.
If you’re trying to do a “ZERO spend organization” in your kitchen, get creative and use things you already have.
Like this clever kitchen organization hack for ALL those plastic bags:
Organize your pantry by boxes, cans, jars, etc…You could also organize it by breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack items.
Use plastic containers to store smaller, loose things like soup mixes and bags of rice. You can also use these to store things like packets of hot chocolate and instant oatmeal and grits. Having three or four boxes that only have a few packs left, take up too much space. Take the boxes out and put those last few packets into a plastic container together.
These easy DIY kitchen organization tips are fairly simple and easy to incorporate into your home. Try them and you’ll have a more organized kitchen, more kitchen storage space and MUCH less anxiety!

This is how I did it.
