My kitchen is unbearably tiny. I have about a 12×12 space on the counter I am able to use for cooking. It’s the one thing I dislike about my apartment, but it’s my home. I started seeing pins about organizing on Pinterest and I decided to get my act together. My system is far from perfect, but it’s better than it was.
I started in my pantry. Right now, I have a bit of overflow on my dining room/crafting table because there was a great sale on some pantry items. But this is how it looked when I first started:
Next I did my cabinets. I actually have to say, this worked amazing. I was wasting so much space in my cabinets. But using organizers that stood the pans up, freed up space. And I moved my pots and other little pans so they stacked up better.
Finally, my freezer. This I’m pretty happy with too. I don’t have frozen food items falling on me whenever I open the door. Although it feels like my freezer is a bit smaller now. It may be because I put the freeze pops in such a large container. But it is summer. When it’s winter, I’ll remove the basket and put more food in.
There we go! That’s all the organizing I’ve done.
