Getting Organized in the Kitchen

Awhile back I did some organizing in my kitchen. I love the few changes I made and am planning to do some more soon.  My Tupperware cupboard solution (seen below) is one of my favorite improvements.  I had been super frustrated with my Tupperware and plastic containers cupboard.  It was just a couple of shelves crammed full of miscellaneous lids and containers... and every time I unloaded the dishwasher whatever I put into the cupboard managed to get shoved to the very back.    I researched online to see what I could find... I found a couple of brands that appealed to me.  Rev-A-Shelf  and ClosetMaid.  I ended up going with the Closetmaid because it was an inexpensive solution to my problem.  Since plasticware isn't heavy, these ClosetMaid wire basket pull outs were the perfect choice. They were super easy to install and they work really well. I'm loving having some organization to my island cabinets!

While I was looking at other options for organization, I found several other items that I am interested in eventually adding to my kitchen and pantry.  This can organizer looks like it would free up a ton of room on the shelves.  It's called the Cansolidator 40-Can Pantry Shelf Organizer (clever name!).  It is the can system shown below.  This is great for putting in a cupboard.  No more not seeing what is in the back of the cupboard (yipee)...  Also, I love that you put the food into the top slot and it comes out the bottom.  So it self rotates your food.  As long as you always use cans from the bottom, you are using the oldest dated can first.  Here are some great inspiration pictures of this system.

These make such great use of cupboard space (or lack of cupboard space, depending on the situation)...  and nothing gets buried in the back of the cabinet.  I so could have used these back in my small condo!

You can even use them in the refrigerator for sodas or beer.

 It's pretty cool that you can stack them and they connect side by side.  Also they can widths are adjustable (notice even the thin tuna can slot on the bottom).  I want these for my pantry!

Below are links via Amazon to the great organizational items that I mentioned above...  I love that I am able to find everything I am looking for on Amazon and it is so convenient!

Happy Organizing!
