Simple & Easy Kitchen & Pantry Organization Ideas

Are you in an organizing mood? Read below for some simple and easy Kitchen and Pantry Organization ideas.

If there’s anything that my self-proclaimed OCD, A-Type personality loves more than sleep, it’s getting my decluttering and organization done for the house. But, these days of raising little ones, this is what my kitchen looks like most days of the week.


Most days, I feel accomplished if I go to bed without dirty dishes in the sink. This winter, the clutter build-up in my kitchen and pantry hit an all time high. Now that we’re prepping to clear out this house we’ve lived in for the past nine years, I’m in major de-clutter and organize mode.

Here are a few simple & easy kitchen & pantry organization ideas that helped to bring cleanliness and order to our home. And peace and joy to my organization loving heart!

Kitchen Counter Tops

I’m all about downsizing the clutter on our counter tops. I put away small appliances that we don’t regularly use and stored some other unused pots and pans away. After a good decluttering session, I used a couple of products from The Container Store for things like fruit, baby food and other kitchen items I use daily.

Products Used:


Kitchen Drawers & Under the Sink Organization


Let’s not even get started about the drawers. From our silverware drawer to our junk drawer, we just toss in whatever’s clean and pray that we find it when we need it. This was an easy fix of throwing out broken and unused old items. And then reorganizing the kitchenware into the simple modular bins that fit different sized drawers.


Products Used:

Under the sink wasn’t too bad, I got rid of old things that have never been used and organized different items with the bins in the the TCS starter kit to organize the bare necessities of kitchen cleaners, paper towels, soaps and trash bags.


Pantry Organization

I think this might be my new favorite ‘room’ in the house. A couple of years ago, we re-purposed an unused coat closet into our over-sized pantry. But, this is what it looked like before our organization. While it was functional, it just became another place for us to throw stuff in without any order. The kids would climb all over, looking for things out of reach and then leave more clutter behind.


Products Used

With the Pantry Starter Kits from TCS, it was easy to run through our bulk pantry supplies and organize them into the different containers. My husband loves the OXO containers that are air tight and keep all of our food fresh and crisp. The mesh bins are the perfect pieces to store the baby snacks and pouches. Seriously, everything about this whole set up makes my OCD heart so, so happy!

The kids LOVE that they have their own shelf that’s easily accessible.


Fridge/Freezer Organization

We have a small side by side fridge that is bursting at the seams with food for our family of five. It’s an old fridge that is now missing shelves and other essential pieces which makes it especially difficult to have any sort of order or organization. Thankfully, the modular pieces of the Fridge/Freezer starter kit from The Container Store made it pretty easy for me to sort through our food and store it in a practical way for every day use.

Products Used:

Clean kitchen and pantry equals HAPPY MAMA & WIFE. While our house is never short on chaos, I love the new organization ideas that brings a little bit of order into my life. It truly makes it so much easier to stay on top of the daily tasks of cleaning and organizing our happy home.
