10 Kitchen Organizers You CAN Afford

10 Kitchen Organizers You CAN Afford

I’m a sucker for an organized kitchen. There are a ton of ready made cabinet organizers available, but most of them are costly. I’ve managed to find a few nice cabinet organizers for an affordable price.

1. Dollar store pull out basket organizer from The Kim Six Fix

My kitchen sink cabinet is one of the hardest to keep organized. This cabinet organizer would be cheap and easy to make, and it makes a good use of the space.

2. Pyrex organization using pot and pan organizers from Kevin and Amanda

I own several of these organizers that I use to organize bakeware and pots and pans. They’re inexpensive and you can find them at most big box stores. They’re also pretty sturdy.

3. This DIY baking sheet organizer from Indulge

This could be made easily and cheaply. I could see this being in a cabinet above a fridge or microwave.

4. Use inexpensive baskets to organize a small pantry via Pinterest

You can buy these baskets from Target for a small amount of money. They have different sizes as well.

5. Use baskets in deep drawers to corral Tupperware and lids via BHG

My Tupperware cabinet is a frequent mess. If I had a drawer deep enough, I’d use this idea.

6. Use a mop holder to store spices via City Girls and Country Pearls

Tired of searching for spices in a crowded cabinet? This life hack makes use of the back of your cabinet door.

7. DIY silverware drawer organizer via Princess Pinky Girl

You could do this very easily!

8. Got deep cabinets? Create some in-cabinet drawers! Via Remodelaholic

You could build these fairly cheaply; much more cheaply than the ready made ones big box stores sell and install.

9. Use command hooks to organize pretty much anything via Two Twenty One

I use command hooks to organize our baking cups and spoons, but I really love the idea of using them for your mixer attachments.

10. Undershelf baskets will add cabinet space via Pinterest

These baskets are fairly inexpensive, durable, and you can find them anywhere. Take advantage of some tall cabinets with these!

So there you have it. 10 cheap and useful ideas for organizing your kitchen cabinets without spending a lot of money.

Have a wonderful weekend.

21-day challenge: a whole-house purge

21-day challenge: a whole-house purge

Last week, I had spring break. While I wanted to get a lot of things accomplished, I also wanted to have some down time. I managed to get our garden plowed and some flowers planted.

I also completed a whole house purge, where I went through our home room by room and got rid of many things we no longer need or use.

I got rid of three stacks of old magazines.

Many old DVDs and CDs we no longer use.

A large pile of outgrown toys and duplicate toys.

And about five bags of trash.

To purge the house, I chose to donate anything we no longer needed or used, donate any outgrown toys or clothing, and throw away any broken or expired items.

Living with less makes me feel less stressed and more relaxed. My house feels more cozy, too.

Simplify Saturday: Spring cleaning

Simplify Saturday: Spring cleaning

Some of us have been elbow deep in our spring cleaning routine. Because I am a teacher, spring cleaning takes me a lot longer than most. I don’t enjoy losing my whole spring break to cleaning, so I have to stretch my spring cleaning out across several Saturdays and evenings. This means my projects are on a smaller scale than most, and the bigger things get saved until summer vacation.

I came up with a 21-day challenge for those of us who work a lot, raise kids, and don’t have a ton of time to devote to spring cleaning.

This 21-day challenge breaks your spring cleaning into smaller pieces, and enables you to go through your home room by room instead of tackling your whole house all at once.

Even though it doesn’t say it on the graphic, I dust blinds, baseboards and clean behind and under furniture in each room as I cross it off the list.

Another option is to organize only a small part of each room on the list, and then repeat the challenge for 21 more days and finish the rooms. You have a lot of flexibility.

I would love for you to participate along with us and share your before and after pictures on social media. Please use the hashtag #21dayorganizingchallenge.

Happy organizing! Have a wonderful weekend.
