The benefits of organized kitchen cabinets and drawers

Reduced stress levels

No more fumbling around to find a lid that fits the particular container. No more frantic searches for the can opener while simultaneously dodging flying spatulas. Put an end to yelling that you can’t find something even if you know you have it. A calm kitchen equals a calm mama.

Saved time:

Spend less time digging through the clutter to reach the back of the cabinet. Additionally, having organized kitchen cabinets and drawers makes it simple to keep track of supplies that are running out, and saves you time when looking over your inventory or shopping. Inventory checklists greatly aid in maintaining organization.

Improved hygiene:

 Less clutter means less dust and grime accumulation, leading to a cleaner and healthier kitchen. With organized kitchen cabinets and drawers, you can eliminate out-of-date goods and broken kitchenware that could attract pests into your home.

Step-by-step guide to organizing kitchen cabinets and drawers

1. Empty everything:

Yes, everything. This may seem daunting, but trust me, it’s like therapy for your kitchen.

2. Clean the cabinets and drawers:

This is your chance to tackle those sticky spills, hidden crumbs, and the lingering scent of old continent spices. Here’s a quick cleaning guide: 

  • Combine equal parts vinegar and water to make a mild all-purpose cleanser.
  • Add a small amount of dish soap to the vinegar solution, it works well for grease spots.
  • To remove sticky residue, use a paste made of baking soda and water to scrub the area gently but effectively.
  • Applying these solutions with a gentle microfiber cloth protects the surface of the cabinet.
  • To avoid water damage, make sure the cabinets are completely dry after cleaning with a fresh towel.

3. Group similar items:

Utensils with utensils, spices with spices, and those Tupperware lids that magically appear everywhere except on their containers (seriously, where do they go?). Start by categorizing your items—think pots, pans, utensils, and the heart-shaped cookie cutter. Then, designate a specific spot for each category. Use shelf risers, drawer dividers, and containers to create designated zones for different items.

4. Label everything:

After everything is cleaned, it could be enjoyable to create your own kitchen labels. The best partners in your kitchen are labels. They’ll spare you from wasting time by keeping you from ever again opening all of your kitchen drawers and cabinets or playing “mystery container.”

5. Choose the right storage solutions:

Invest in drawer dividers, lazy susans, clear containers, and shelf risers, and maximize vertical space without taking up too much room. Remember, organizing kitchen cabinets and drawers is all about maximizing space and keeping things accessible.

Now that you’ve overcome the chaos, let’s maintain it that way! Make it a practice to put things back where they belong after using them. Every few weeks plan for a quick “kitchen audit” to dispose of expired goods and clear out clutter. Train yourself and your family to return items after use.

Now, let’s be real. Life happens; sometimes, even the most organized kitchen cabinets and drawers can become chaotic. If you find yourself drowning in dirty dishes and overflowing cabinets, don’t despair! One Organized Mom is here to help. We will clean up the mess so you can focus on more important things and have a spotless kitchen. So go forth, conquer the clutter, and embrace the joy of organizing kitchen cabinets and drawers!
