Living in rentals and housing on base can require some creative organization problem solving. There’s no room to get more inventive in than the kitchen. I’ve rounded up nine of my favorite kitchen organization ideas to share with you!
1. For the pantry
Get your pantry squared away with dollar store bins and labels.
With some homes, you have to make the most of the space available. Under shelf baskets keep goods more organized than stacking!
2. Snacks on hand
Keep snacks easy to grab and visible by using an over the door shoe organizer on the back of your pantry door. It also frees up more shelf space.
Food going bad is one of the quickest ways to throw money away. Keep your fridge sorted and produce visible with these dollar store baskets.
3. Everyday items as decor
Some everyday items like salt, pepper and olive oil can be left on the counter when organized in a pretty basket. This frees up pantry or cabinet space and keeps frequently used items accessible.
4. Tame Drawers
Tame your drawer clutter with inexpensive baskets. It might take a little Tetris-style experimentation but it will keep the small items from disappearing!
5. Off the Counters
These magazine racks make for a pretty way to store produce and free up counter space. You can also use shower organizers – which often have hooks to hang frequently used utensils as well!
Even without the shower organizer, you can hang utensils with the ever handy Command Hooks!
6. Corral tupperware lids
An inexpensive dish drying rack keeps lids organized and easily accessible.
7. Make fridge cleanup a snap
Pick up inexpensive vinyl mats and cut them to fit your fridge doors. When the inevitable spills and messes occur, just pull them out and rinse out! An average sized fridge will take about 7 mats.
8. Temporary BackSplash
This isn’t so much organization, as decor, but you can use those same snazzy vinyl mats to personalize your kitchen as a temporary back splash.
9. Command Hooks
I mentioned command hooks up in #5, but there so many ways they can used. Contain lids, hang baskets or utensils and corral larger items like brooms and dust pans. What else could YOU do with a command hook?
