The kitchen is the heart of the home. And, when the kitchen is not running in tip-top shape, it will create problems each and every day for every family member that uses it, especially mom and dad. This week, we will be sharing the DIY organizing projects from Sabrina's Organizing you can do today and make your kitchen run more efficiently.
The 8 DIY organizing projects are in several areas in the kitchen, so they are divided into five zones: Kitchen Command Station, Paper Management, Pantry Cabinet, Kitchen Cabinets, and Refrigerator. I hope this helps you get inspired to make your kitchen run better.
Kitchen Command Station Essentials
Having a useful command station will not only organize your life, but it will also help you organize your family's activities. In this DIY Organizing Project, I transformed an old magnet board that didn’t function any longer to a new command station. Visit the post by clicking below.
Paper Management in a Command Station
Paper management is vital in the kitchen. It’s usually where we drop the mail, and where our kids' papers for school stay until we need them. Below are three DIY organizing projects that I created over the years to manage all my documents.
The first one is a magnet board that uses clips and label tags. The second one is a way to file your family’s papers. It’s divided by months and can be stored in a drawer or cabinet. The third one organizes papers by the days of the week that you may need them. This helped with permission slips and making sure the kids have what they need when they need it.
The above current weekly paper sorter helps manage the papers that are needed for a particular week. They will take items of the piles in the kitchen and display them in a functional way.
Instead of paper in a pile for long periods of time, we can now sort them by months and topics. The DIY project below will help you organize papers during the year. It's divided into a few months per folder.
Now on to the pantry area. This area is looked at and pulled from almost every day. It’s a place where we can store the access supplies.
Pantry DIY Essentials
The Pantry DIY project include having a place to write your grocery list and meal planning for the week. The next post talks about how to label mason jars easily and quickly. The final pantry post talks about creating a checklist for the herbs and spices.
Labeling mason jars can be difficult, especially if they have raised writing on the jars, which they usually do. Below is a way to adhere to the mason jar labels that will stay for a long time.
On to the next area, the kitchen cabinets can get very messy. Organizing the items in the drawer will really help you keep your kitchen organized.
Kitchen Cabinet Essentials
Another area to organize in the kitchen is located in the kitchen drawers. The post talks about steps on how to create a large drawer organizer made out of wood.
Another area to organize in the kitchen is the refrigerator. It’s where we pull all the items and make our meals so it needs to be well organized.
DIY Refrigerator Organization
Another DIY organizing projects include organizing the refrigerator. This project was a way to organize large drawers in the refrigerator.
I hope these DIY Organizing Projects help you get your kitchen running more efficiently. I hope your family appreciates it. What is your favorite kitchen DIY organizing project that you completed in your kitchen? Please leave a comment below.
