Time to Create a Beautifully Organised Space…
This time of year is usually when we start to do some organising projects. Personally, I’m constantly organising. I cannot function in a messy home, and with my home becoming my office last year, it was more important than ever that my home was neat and organised.
One room that I always find always benefits from the organisation is this kitchen. Since we made over our rental kitchen, we wanted to iron out the organisation and made sure everything had a home.
There are many things that I use when I organise my kitchen cabinets, all that I believe are 100% worth investing your money into. Here are my top recommendations on things you can use to organise your kitchen cabinets…
I love using a woven basket when I organise my kitchen cabinets. These seagrass baskets have been a lifesaver when it’s come to keeping our kitchen neat and tidy. I use quite a few different sizes throughout my cupboards. I have ones for dried goods, ones for organising our baking equipment. I even have a super large one for my back stock, all those extra bits of food that I don’t want to clutter our main food section.
I would highly recommend getting some form of a woven basket that fits in with your interior style. Seagrass works perfectly for our neutral interiors. You may, however, want to get some wired baskets or perhaps a thicker weave. Whatever fits in with the look of your fabulous home.
CLEAR STORAGE BOXES.
Again, something that has been a lifesaver, especially in our fridge. These clear storage organisers have been great for keeping similar items together and being able to see exactly what I have in one go. Most of them I keep in my fridge. I love these deep high sided ones, especially with these cute sticky labels.
For organising my kitchen cabinets, I’ve grown fond of using these can organisers for my tin goods. They are great for keeping all similar tinned items together. Also, if you organised them in date order, you can ensure you’re using all of them within their timeframe. When you take one out, the next one rolls to the front, so you’re not fighting in cupboards to get the things you need.

LARGE CUTLERY ORGANISER.
This has been a game-changer and is such a beauty to the eye. Our old cutlery holder was too small and the drawer was a shambles. However, I could never find the right size tray that fitted our odd drawer perfectly. Enter our expandable wooden cutlery organiser. This moves to fix the drawer perfectly. Not only does it look amazing, but it holds everything that I have in that previous drawer. It’s so pleasing to the eye and everything is just there ready for me to grab whilst I’m prepping.
GLASS FOOD JARS.
If you’re like me and hate the look of most food packaging, you are going to love this organisational tip. I love decentering my food into glass jars. Not only does it look better than the brightly colour food packaging, but I can see exactly how much of everything I have, making the food shop list easier to do.
From an aesthetical point of view, displaying your food like this allows you to add a little bit of texture to your interiors. I use these for a lot of my dried goods, organising them into sections depending on the food’s function. Our little breakfast station for my husband’s porridge is his favourite things. All the things he needs first thing in the morning are right there ready for him to grab.
A LAZY SUSAN & A SPICE RISER.
If I could fit any more of these into my kitchen, they would be practically in every nook and cranny! I didn’t think a lazy Susan would be that beneficial when it came to organising my kitchen cabinets. But this has been revolutionary when it’s come to storing our sauces and condiments in our cupboard. This lazy Susan in particular has worked perfectly in our smaller cupboard. All our bottles fit nicely into it and I’m not fighting to get to the bottles at the back.
Another ride or die in our kitchen has been our spice riser. This plastic step-up has allowed us to store our spice collection in such a neat way. I can see exactly what we have (especially with them in alphabetical order) and cooking has been a breeze. It’s these little things that I would recommend investing in that has made prepping dinner a joy again.
