Declutter Your Kitchen


You’ve been putting off decluttering your kitchen for way too long. And it’s time to get started! 

But with all the other things you have to do, it may seem like an uphill battle. The good news is that decluttering your kitchen isn’t as hard as you think. 

In fact, with a few simple tricks and some budget-friendly storage ideas, you’ll be able to make this room look more like a showroom within no time at all.

Make the Most of the Space Above Your Cabinets

One of the best things you can do to make your kitchen more functional and stylish is to use the space above your cabinets. It’s easy to just store things that don’t fit in drawers, but there are so many other options available! You can hang pots and pans, use it as extra storage for spices or baking supplies (like flour or sugar), or even display favorite pieces that don’t fit on their own.

If you’re looking for inspiration on how to decorate this area of your kitchen, check out these ideas:

Add More Shelving to Cabinets

You can easily add more shelving to cabinets by using a shelf above the stove, sink, dishwasher and refrigerator.

If you have room for it, try adding another one on the other side of your kitchen as well. You may also want to put shelves in your laundry room or pantry (or both).

Use Command Hooks

Command hooks are easy to use and affordable. They can be used on walls, doors, cabinets, cupboards and more. Hanging small items like utensils, pots and pans is one of their best uses; hanging larger items like towels or coats is also possible with command hooks.

Declutter Labels and Lids From Spice Jars

  • Use a label maker to label jars. It’s easy, and it will keep your spices organized by type.
  • Use permanent markers to label jars, lids and containers. This way you can use the same marker on each container so they don’t get mixed up between them!
  • Clean up all the labels from jars or containers before moving them somewhere else in your kitchen—or vice versa! If there are any glue marks left behind from when you printed out labels for these storage solutions, use some rubbing alcohol and Q-tips to remove those as well before storing away anything else that needs organizing (like kitchen utensils).

Store Wrap in a File Container

You can store your wrap in a file container, which is a great place to put it because it will be out of sight and easy to find when you need it. File containers come in all shapes, sizes and materials so there’s something for everyone.

If you’re using this method to organize your wraps, label the container by type (e.g., garlic knots) or brand (e.g., Kraft). Then you can use this as an easy-to-find storage solution for all of those other things that have been collecting dust around your house!

Hang Pots with a Curtain Rod

This is a great way to hang pots and pans on the wall. You can use a tension rod, which will hold the pots in place while you add other items such as hooks or shelves.

To hang your pots with this method, start by drilling holes into your wall where you want them placed. Then screw in two brackets that are spaced evenly apart from one another and attach them to the wall using screws (you may need help holding things steady while drilling). After that, thread each pot through its own bracket so that it hangs securely from them; then add hooks if necessary!

Free Up Counter Space by Hanging Mugs on Pegboard

A pegboard is a great way to free up space on your kitchen counter. It’s easy to install, and it can be used for many other things besides mugs or utensils. You can hang various items from the pegboard—cooking utensils, spices, bowls—and you’ll always have an organized spot for them in your kitchen.

Pegboards are inexpensive ($20-$30) and come in a variety of styles (we like the classic white ones). You may also want to consider installing magnetic hooks in your cabinets if you don’t already have them there; this will make it even easier for you when trying out different storage solutions!

You can keep your kitchen organized without blowing your budget.

Organizing your kitchen is a simple task, but it’s one that many people struggle with because they don’t know where to start or how much it will cost. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to organize your kitchen without spending a lot of money or hiring someone else to do it for you! 


These tips are sure to help you tidy up your kitchen in a way that won’t break the bank, but that also allows for easy access and storage. If you don’t have much room on the countertop, consider using a pegboard instead of hanging pots, or add more shelving to increase organization. 

And if you have some extra time this spring—or any time of year—take advantage by decluttering labels from spice jars and file drawers!
