Quick Kitchen Organizing Ideas

*This post is in partnership with Command™*

I have a love/hate relationship with organizing: I love it once it’s done, but the idea of organizing can be overwhelming. See, I’m all about quick and easy ideas (because, honestly, I’m lazy like that) – so spending hours meticulously organizing just isn’t going to happen. Command™ Brand products are the perfect partner to help get kitchens organized super quick, because they can be used on various surfaces, depending on the product. And bonus, I love the fact that you can put them up quickly on any surface and take them down without damage.

First, gather all supplies and determine the various areas you plan to organize. Follow all surface prep instructions on the back of the packaging. See the before photo above? I did all of the things below in under half an hour:

Start by de-cluttering cabinets! Following package instructions, adhere two Command™ Quartz Terrace Hooks to the tile backsplash. For strongest hold, avoid placing adhesive strips over grout (the strip part is only on the tile). Free up cabinet space by hanging strainers on the walls instead.

Take it one step further by using two Command™ Clear Medium Hooks on the outside of a cabinet to neatly store measuring cups and spoons.

Then, clear out those drawers. Following package instructions, mount a Command™ Quartz Key Rail on the wall near the stove. Instead of keeping oven mitts in drawers or on countertops, hang them on the key rail for easy access when you need them.

organizing mail and shopping lists #damagefreeDIY

Whether you’re preparing for houseguests or just your weekly errands, staying organized is key. Follow package instructions to adhere Command™ Party Mini Spring Clips and never lose a shopping list, calendar or important receipt again.

Finally, add a little more light to a small kitchen by using Command™ Clear Round Cord Clips to string simple bulb lights onto the edges of shelving or cabinets.

I’m definitely not going to start going crazy with organizing every nook and cranny of our home, but it’s really nice to have the things you need right at your finger tips.
