It’s pretty easy to get things organized but keeping them that way can be more of a challenge, especially in the kitchen. There’s so many kinds of things in different shapes and sizes that need to be stored but also easy to get too. By Organizing the Kitchen with Baskets things are neat and tidy, easy to get too, and contained. Plus you can label the baskets so everyone knows where things should be returned. It’s easy to find inexpensive baskets at second hand stores, yard sales, dollar stores, and other discount stores. You can buy a few at a time if you need too. Even though the baskets are behind closed doors I like to keep them to a few colors so they’re coordinated.
I use this basket tray on the counter as a charging station for my kids electronics. They need to have their electronics plugged in before bedtime. It also keeps them organized and contained so they always know where to find them.
Have you noticed that water bottles have a hard time remaining upright and are always toppling over. There’s an easy solution for that. Place them in a basket. No more bottles laying all over the inside of the cabinet.
Lids are another issue. They can be such a mess. A basket is the perfect solution. Just make sure it isn’t too large or too small.
Use baskets to hold small things like candles and other baking and cooking supplies.
These small baskets are perfect for an all purpose drawer (some people call it a junk drawer), utensils, and other small items. You can buy them 3/$1 which is even more awesome.
Use baskets under the sink to hold cleaning supplies.
Use baskets in the pantry to keep foods contained and similar items together.
Use baskets in the fridge to keep items together. It makes it easier to keep the fridge clean and organized too. Plus you can see what you’re running low on.
I even use baskets in the vegetable bin to keep fruits and vegetables separated.
Use baskets in the freezer too. They’re perfect for popsicles and makes it easy for the kids to get to them.
What are some ways you can find to use baskets in your kitchen? You will love how everything stays organized.
