Organizing your Kitchen on a Budget

Kitchen organization is a must if you want access to all of your items. It can be hard to do when you don’t have the space or the money to create the ultimate organized kitchen. To help you with this dilemma we at Millcreek Self Storage can provide you with a storage unit for all your unused kitchenware. We have also gathered some budget friendly kitchen organization tips for you to try below.

The Pantry

Our pantries are often overflowing with a variety of boxes, jars, and cans. To better organize our pantries you will want to try and get the majority of items in similar sized jars or boxes. Leftover food jars are the perfect solution for storing dry pastas and rice. You can also use magazine racks to keep your canned food under control. Don’t be afraid to be creative and do what works best for you.

The Fridge

In order to maximize your fridge space you could use a Lazy Susan on several shelves. This will allow you to fit everything you need to in your fridge while still having an easy way to grab what you need. For larger items you can use plastic containers that you can buy at any home goods store to keep your foods separated, contained, and organized.

The Cupboards

The amount our kitchen cupboards are expected to store can be a little scary. You can maximize the available space by adding hanging hooks on the cupboard doors for small kitchen accessories. Investing in a pan organizer is the best when it comes to storing your cookware. You can use your pan organizer vertically or horizontally in the space you have available in your cupboard. Adding additional shelving within your cupboards is another option when it comes to maximizing storage space. Wire shelving is relatively cheap and easy to use.

The Drawers

Drawers tend to be the messiest area in the majority of kitchens. Rather than just throwing your utensils in a drawer, you can keep everything organized by making custom dividers to fit all of your kitchen accessories. These can easily be made using left over cardboard or if you are not feeling crafty they can be purchased at most home goods stores.

By using the tips above you can be well on your way to having the organized kitchen you need without breaking your budget. For more storage space you can trust Millcreek Self Storage to provide you with a storage unit that fits all of your storage needs. We have a variety of sizes and prices available to fit your budget.
