If you have a disorganized kitchen cabinet like I did, here are 5 steps you can take to organize your kitchen cabinet.
It’s so easy to forget how messy your cabinet actually is when the doors are closed. See… isn’t this pretty? Sigh.
However, I know the “organized look” of this cabinet is only skin deep. Once you open up this beauty it is complete and utter chaos! I knew I needed to get started on this one for some time now, but I always had an excuse for putting it off.
5 Simple Steps for An Organized Cabinet
Thankfully though, I finally dug deep and developed these 5 simple steps for an organized cabinet.
I hope they help you as much as they helped me. You really can have an organized kitchen cabinet that stays that way.
1. Assess the damage.
Yikes! I’m almost embarrassed to post this one. Oh well, we all have flaws. Mine are in my cabinets. Hah!
2. Take out everything.
Pull everything out of the cabinets. This is the only way you will be able to see how much you have.
3. Get rid anything that doesn’t have a matching partner, or that you no longer use.
I know, I know. You’re going to “find” that lid some day. Trust me. You probably won’t. Especially if you have a toddler and dogs. It’s gone.
Getting rid of things you can’t use properly will free up room for everything you do currently use.
4. Paint it up, baby!
Paint is a miracle worker. While this drawer looks just fine in this color you know it would look a hundred times better if it was white. Isn’t this refreshing? Love it!
5. Put everything back neatly.
Last, but not least… organize what remains.
I used a larger plastic container to hold my lids. You might need some boxes, baskets, or something to keep them all contained.
Now all I have to do is get my “roommates” on the same page.
Keep your toes crossed for me! 😉
