How I organize my kitchen, pt 1.

I am always so nosy as to how people organize the rooms in their house… like what is hiding behind your kitchen cabinets?!?!? Well, now you can see mine. Today we will focus on the upper cabinets and will come back to the lower cabinets in a separate blog post.

This is how my cabinets look. We have a generous sized kitchen, but no pantry.

On each side of my kitchen window, I keep half of my spice collection. It’s actually one of my favorite parts of my kitchen.

The first set of cabinets when you enter the kitchen (aka furthest from the stove) is where we keep half of our food stuffs. The bottom shelf is canned food and nut butters; second shelf is jelly, baking stuff, and random stuff like pasta sauce and bread crumbs; the top shelf is vinegars and hot sauces.

The other half of that cabinet is jarred food, the blue bins hold dried fruit and snacks like Z’s trailmix, while the top basket contains miscellanous sauces like fish sauce and soy sauce.

The final cabinet on that side is mixing bowls and coffee related goods. There is a lot of this stuff because we have moka pot, french press, multiple types of coffee, and Anna NEEDS all the different travel mugs. It is also where I keep my measuring spoons. I don’t really have a reason why… I just do. Hmm… maybe time to move that.

Above my stove or near my stove is overflow/extra spices, salts, and baggies/foils. I try not to reach into this cabinet often, instead using the spice jars. The exception is the jars directly above the stove, which are our most used spices. This is mainly for Z.’s convenience because SOMEONE doesn’t like reaching for spices.

Our kitchen is far from pinterest/ minimalist tidy, but it works for us. Our kitchen cabinets aren’t deep or big, but we can easily find everything without having to move a bunch of other stuff.

Hope this helped you guys find some ideas for your own kitchen! Stay tuned for part two.
