The kitchen is the first place I need to start!

Here are 8 smart tips to help you organize your kitchen!

Kitchen Organization

I can’t believe I never thought to put these organizing tools to use in my refrigerator.

I love this idea! Use tension curtain rods to create dividers. Buy rods to fit the space, and position pairs of them at intervals. Great for storing platters, cookie sheets and cutting boards

Use vinyl to place a measurement conversion chart right inside your cabinet door.

I don’t have much cabinet space, so I use a wall mounted pot rack to hang my pots over my stove.

I already use hooks inside my cabinet doors for dish rags to dry, but I love the idea of adding buckets to doors for sponges and tools too!

Make a chalkboard for the kitchen to keep track groceries needed, menus and to-do lists.

Use jars, containers, and baskets to keep pantry items organized.  Use labels to make sure everyone knows what goes where.

Make better use of the space under your sink.  Hang spray bottles from a tension rod for easy access.

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, fantastic blog!

    Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?

    Most individuals prepare for cost of moving expenses such
    as boxes and tape. However, you have to take the time to do it right and follow the proper steps for this dream to become a reality.
    Using furniture colors such as black or red in a light
    color themed room not only adds a bold feeling to the theme, it also gives it
    a modern look.

    It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this
    article at this web page.

    comparison of most up-to-date and previous technologies, it’s amazing

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for rookie
    blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    I love all of these ideas! I don’t have a lot of space in the kitchen so, any of these tips is great for me. I love the turning table in the fridge. I had no idea that I can put such a thing there. Thanks a lot for sharing!

    I love your every idea of organizing the kitchen so well placed! The tension rod under table is a great one.
