Tips and Tricks to Organizing Your Kitchen!

Welcome to Day One of Organize your Heart and Home!


Today, I am sharing some of my favorite kitchen organization tips and tricks.

I am hoping some of these ideas will help motivate you to organize an area in your kitchen as well, and then share it with me!  On Friday, I will be hosting a link up party on my blog for you to link up any kitchen organization posts, past or present.  If you do not have a blog, I would love for you to share your before and after pictures with me via an email or facebook, and I will be sharing them with my readers.

Utensil Organization

I love how these larger utensils are hanging from a shelf making room for coffee cups on top and leaving the countertop clear.

I love how Marian from Miss Mustard Seed stores her large utensils in an antique piece and creates a beautiful display with other items on a tray.  




If your utensil drawers are a hot mess like mine, you can follow this tutorial from Kevin {&} Amanda to create a DIY Kitchen Utensil Drawer Organizer for less than ten dollars!



Pots and Pans Organization

Now, I am not one to have my pots and pans out in the open for everyone to see, but using a pegboard definitely makes great use of wall space and makes your items easy to reach.  The fresh flowers, glass canisters, and wicker tray on the table below makes this space look very beautiful and organized.


Country Living

I love how the space underneath this island was used to store pots and pans.  



Or you can store your pots and pans above your island to save space in your kitchen…




Here is an example of how you can store your pot lids on the inside of your cabinet door.  You can also use dividers to store your casserole dishes and muffin pans.




More Kitchen Organization


Make the most of the inside of your cabinet doors, like this idea from Classy Clutter.  She hung a measurement conversion chart and pot holders on her door.  I also love the way she has her spices organized inside her cabinet.



Here’s a nifty way to store your plastic wrap and aluminum foil boxes…attach a magazine rack to the cabinet door!



I like this idea as well!




Use tension rods to create dividers for trays and cutting boards.


Martha Stewart


I am in luuuurve with this pantry from Everyday Enchanting.  Click HERE to see the details. 



 Are you feeling inspired?

Maybe you would like to try one of these ideas in your kitchen, or maybe you have an organizing idea of your own!  Either way, let’s get it done THIS WEEK!!

I’m starting on mine today and will share it with you tomorrow. 

I can’t wait to see what you are up to!!

Have a blessed and organized day!!



  1. GENIUS!! I’m typically a very organized person, and I LOVE Command hooks. I have several things hanging inside my cabinet doors already, but for some reason, the potholders hadn’t occurred to me. I was just now able to free up room in my crowded dishcloth drawer by hanging my long Pampered Chef, mitt, as well as my two smaller C&B mitts, and now the drawer is perfect! Thank you!!

  2. My kitchen cabinets are always overflowing with stuff. So I have been considering getting some kitchen organizing supplies. I liked that you showed how you can hang pots over a countertop. That could be a good way for me to free up some space.
