Kitchen Cupboard & Drawer Organization: Quick, Cheap & Easy

I am back in the kitchen today with some quick, cheap and easy kitchen cupboard and drawer organization ideas using some of my very favorite inexpensive products.

Some very useful inexpensive organizing items are these dish pan containers from the Dollar Tree.  These pans are only $1.00 each and are great to use all throughout the house.  In my pantry cupboard I use 4 of these pans to store and separate my baking products, cake mixes, recipe packets and daily medicines.



I found the chalkboard removable decals at Michael's Craft Store.  Using an erasable chalk pen these decals can be changed easily when the contents of the pans change.

Mason jars are not just one of my favorite organizing items, they are one of favorite multi use items ever!  They too can be used all over the house to store so many things, but in the kitchen we use them for everything.  We use them as drinking glasses, to store left overs and in our pantry cupboard, we use them to store our different types of pasta, rice, bread crumbs and drink mix packets.  




These adorable chalkboard tags were found in the dollar spot at my favorite Target store.

Another great use of Mason jars is in your spice cabinet.  I love to cook and I cook everyday so I have a large collection of spices.  It was always so messy to have all those little jars stacked on top of each other in my cabinet.  I transferred all my spices into 2 different sizes of jam jars. The spices I used everyday I put into the large jars and all the others were stored in the smaller jars. 

The jars look so great all lined up and the cupboard looks neat and organized.  Each jar has a Ball Herb Shaker Cap that snaps open for use and snaps shut so should a jar fall over, it won't leave a mess.  These caps fit any regular mouthed mason jars.


We all probably have more kitchen gadgets then we could ever use so it's always a good idea to go through your collection and purge the ones that you never use.  When you can reduce what you have, not only will you be surprised at what you can do with out, but you will be able to keep what you have in a more organized way.  

I was able to create custom drawers for all those kitchen gadgets that I use most often.  These high quality utensil bins I purchased from the Dollar Tree.  Now everything has a home.


Even more importantly the family will know where everything belongs.

  1. Thanks for all the great tips. I could definitely use those chalkboard labels. I just use sticky notes that always fall off and have to be replaced when the contents change.

  4. Wow those drawer organizers are from the Dollar Tree?? Awesome find!! I bought my cooking utensil drawer organizers from The Container Store and I love them, but those look like a really great affordable alternative! I also love your idea of using dish pans as cupboard organizers! What a cool repurposing!
