I am so honored to be among 11 talented ladies for the Organize me Pretty Series, which started on Monday with Home Made by Carmona.
Organize Me Pretty Series – Functional for Daily use
First, I like to share 3 great ways to organize around the kitchen, from creating an organized and colorful pantry, labeling your jars to organizing your drawers and cabinets for easy daily use. Here is my Organize Me Pretty Series – Functional for Daily use.
Our pantry used to be such an unorganized space, that every time I had to look for something I cramped up just thinking about it!
So, one day I decided to give it a facelift by taking everything out, cleaning, painting, and organizing it from top to bottom! We had decided to hide our Microwave in the pantry. I called an electrician, and he was able to add an additional electrical outlet for $100. You can find the full tutorial/makeover here.
Top to bottom:
- Top rack – is for things we normally do not use as often, like the iron skillet or the wire stand for our glass juice jar.
- Second rack – baking pans, baking ingredients, and wooden roller
- Third rack – Cookbooks, candy jar (made sure it’s high enough so my kids can’t reach for it), cookies and some extra cooking ingredients like; rice and noodles
- Fourth rack – Oils, vinegar, and syrups, Microwave, and shopping bags
- Fifth rack – Cans, little snacks for the kids like; Cereal pouches, apple sauce, peanut butter, and fruit cups
- Bottom – Recycling bin and our potatoes (see tips below for storing potatoes in your pantry)
The kitchen drawers are the most used part in our kitchen (actually, it’s the fridge but more about that in a different post). We all need spices, pots, pans, or a glass to fill with water!
I used the ikea glass jars to store all my spices, cooking, and baking ingredients.
Always wondered where to hide your KitchenAid? I am using the bottom drawer of my tall cabinet to store it in. I can still get to it quick and once done using, I just place it back.
And since we have glass door cabinets, we stack the everyday glassware on the bottom. Coffee cups, saucers, wine, and beer glasses go on the middle and top shelf. As a business owner of two businesses, I developed a storage solution for both businesses which helps me to get to my supplies easily depending on the job. By separating supplies in my studio, I know exactly where to look = less time spent on the job!

I finally finished our laundry room, and I love all the space I have now to store things and fold laundry on. Do you have a spare change jar? – Consider adding one to your laundry room!
Hallway | Shoe storage:
I was looking for a storage solution for our kids shoes. Something that was easily accessible for them, and would work with our decor. The wicker basket was affordable, and both of our kids love to use it!
Hope you enjoyed the little Organize Me Pretty tour through my kitchen. Make sure to check out the other blogs for more organized inspirations.
