How-to Make Your Kitchen Functional and Organized

A few weeks ago when I gave you guys all the tips and tricks to keep your home organized in 2021, I realized that there are so many good kitchen finds that it truly deserves its own post. The kitchen is the hub of the home so it’s important that it’s functional and the way you organize it is intentional! Thankfully this guide will make it fool-proof and as easy as 1, 2, 3! Let’s do this thing.

If you’re lucky enough to have a gorgeous walk in pantry then you definitely need organizational tools to help keep it functional — even more so if you’re like me and your “pantry” is just another cupboard in your kitchen.


Containers are so handy and come in a variety of styles such as acrylic [see through], material, and wicker to name just a few. They’re great for organizing snacks and miscellaneous items that usually don’t have a designated spot in your pantry, keeping everything nice and tidy as well as easy to find. Having a different container/basket for each category really makes it easier to keep track of what you need to replenish, another great feature especially if you use acrylic containers because then you can physically see what you have.

Jars are probably one our favourite storage items, you’ll find plenty scattered around our kitchen. I love the aesthetic appeal they have doubling as decor while keeping your spices, pastas, and baking ingredients air-tight and fresh!

I don’t know about you, but under our kitchen sink it’s likely to look like a small bomb imploded. That was until I found these amazing organizers that are cost friendly and expandable therefore typically universal for whatever space you’re working with.

Who knew organizing your fridge could be so dang satisfying. I did a complete overhaul

a few weeks ago and took out everything in my fridge to give it a good deep clean, before putting everything back in I put in fridge liners and used organizational bins made specifically for the cold. Now cleaning the fridge is 10x easier and its so convenient to find items that I would normally have to move a million other things out of the way to grab. Can you relate to that frustration or is it just me, lol?

  1. I looove these ideas! I’m forever picking up mason jars to fill up with oats, pasta etc, it makes my heart so happy! Also love the idea of the acrylic containers so you can see when snacks need replenishing 👀 Have a great day x

  2. Great ideas! My kitchen is embarrassingly cluttered right now! I’ve been looking to thrift some baskets like these for better organization within our cabinets. Right now we just have one big cabinet for food storage and it’s basically just a black hole! Eeek!
