1. Lazy Susan: Great for Pantries, Cabinets & Refrigerators

I start with my all-time FAVE and queen of kitchen organizers: the Lazy Susan. This simple tool allows you to store many items together in a small space while providing access to each item when you need it.

In the photo above, you can see I use it on my pantry shelves to store “like” items (oils, types of vinegar, syrups, etc.). Just a quick spin and I can grab any bottle I need.

I also use it in my vitamin and medicine cabinet:

You can also use a Lazy Susan in a refrigerator, under the kitchen sink, in your spice cabinet…the possibilities are endless. (Check out more Lazy Susan ideas for the entire home.)

Right now, grab a set of two Lazy Susan organizers:

2. Bamboo Drawer Organizer: Perfect for Kitchen Tools, Coffee Pods, Utensils, Cords & Cables

I love the look of bamboo. It’s durable, it matches the interior of my kitchen drawers, and it’s eco-friendly.

I have bamboo organizers in several kitchen drawers. One stores my kitchen tools (photo above). I also use one to store my coffee K-cups:

And I use a bamboo organizer for my utensil drawer:

3. Under Shelf Basket: Use on Pantry Shelves and in Kitchen Cabinets

An under shelf basket is a GREAT way to maximize all the space on your pantry shelves or in kitchen cabinets. I used baskets in the photo above to separate my baking pans (they were always falling over when I stacked them).

I also use them in my pantry “snack zone:”

You can use these baskets to store loaves of bread, tortillas, protein bars, plates, placemats or napkins…anything that fits will work!

4. Clear Refrigerator Bins: Also Great for Pantries & Under the Sink

I use clear bins EVERYWHERE in my house. They make perfect refrigerator storage (and they’re easy to clean). Snack foods work great in these bins, especially when they can stack.

I love my clear bins under the kitchen sink:

I also use them in my closet to store my husband’s t-shirts.

5. Cabinet Door Spice Holders

The inside of your cabinet doors is an often-forgotten goldmine of extra storage space! I used adhesive spice jar holders in my spice cabinet. They store my “every day” spices like salt, pepper and garlic powder.

When it’s time to cook, I can easily grab these from the cabinet door.

Find spice holders under $20:

6. Magnetic Spice Jars

Another sneaky storage space in a small kitchen: the side of the refrigerator. I found these awesome magnetic spice jars that sit right on the side of my fridge.

If you lack adequate space for spices in your cabinets or drawers, this is a perfect solution!

7. Cup Hangers: Double Your Cabinet Space

I have exactly one cabinet in my kitchen that I can use for all of my glasses, cups and mugs. It’s not a large cabinet, either.

So, I used cup hangers for my white mugs (above) and doubled the usable space on that middle shelf. And they slide right over the shelf; no hardware needed. Perfection!

This kitchen organizer really helped my food bag storage situation. I like to pack my son’s lunch on the kitchen island, and I have a drawer dedicated to lunch prep.

The option below can be placed in a drawer OR hung on a wall, if you lack drawer space.

10. Pan Organizer Rack

NOTHING is more annoying than trying to dig a pan out from the bottom of a stack. This pan organizer rack was a lifesaver for me!

11. Shelf Riser: Amazing for Deep Shelves

Deep shelves are such an organizing challenge! As you can see on the left-side of the photo above, I solved my storage problem by adding a shelf riser behind my Dutch oven. I placed baking pans I use often on top and less-used pans underneath.

The riser doubled my storage space and gave me easy access to pans I use a lot (even though they’re in the back of a cabinet).

12. Water Bottle Rack for Shelves or Cabinets

As you can see above, my family has a lot of reusable water bottles and travel cups. (We’re an athletic family, on the go all the time.)

This stackable rack saved my bacon! It’s so easy to find that ONE bottle we want, when we want it. And we can store all of our bottles in a much smaller footprint than before.
