Whipping up a healthy meal or a refreshing vanilla sugar scrub is much more enjoyable in a fresh, clean and organized kitchen. As the hearth of the home, it’s where family gathers to eat, visit and enjoy quality time together. It’s also a busy hub that can easily get cluttered and disorganized. You don’t have to hire a maid to get your kitchen in order again. These simple DIY kitchen projects will keep your space tidy and organized with just a little time and effort.

Label, Label, Label!

Taking the time to label the items in your kitchen makes it easier for the whole family to find what they need. A quick coat of chalkboard paint can turn the inside of an ordinary cabinet door into a handy measurement guide, or a bare wall into an instant calendar and shopping list. Whether you put your label maker to good use, find free printable labels, or buy some trendy chalkboard labels, you’ll love the instant organized look they give the items in your pantry, refrigerator, spice rack and cabinets.

Make Snack Time Easy

It seems like kids are always hungry, which leaves Mom to find and serve snacks several times a day. Give your kids (or yourself!) the ability to curb their appetites by placing pre-proportioned, healthy snacks like cheese, crackers, raisins, and pretzels in Ziploc bags and keep them in a labeled crate or box in your fridge or pantry.  You can use anything from a shoebox to a store-bought bin, or build your own using scrap wood and chalkboard paint.

Corral Your Electronics

With the amount of phones, ipads, and e-readers in homes today, it’s easy to end up with a tangled mess of chargers cluttering the kitchen counter. Follow this easy DIY tutorial to create your own custom charging station to hide cords and display your electronics with just a few inexpensive boards and simple tools. For an even easier solution, secure a power strip to the back of an empty drawer, thread the cord through a drilled hole in the back, and tuck away your electronics.

Break out the Baskets

Much of the disorder in our kitchens is made from small, random items that clutter our pantries or countertops. Use an inexpensive basket to round up small food items like granola bars, fruit snacks, crackers, and snacks. Tucked into a free space in your pantry and labeled accordingly, you’ll be able to easily find them and have a home for other stray items in the future.

Magnetize to Organize

You can use more than your fridge to organize with magnets. A simple magnetic strip can take your spices from cluttered chaos to a darling display and keep your knives out of reach of little hands.  Display commonly-used items like scissors, pens, pencils, and sticky notes in vintage tins and keep them easily within reach on a magnetic strip or on your fridge. We hope these tips and tricks help you start 2018 off on the right foot!
