14 Fun, Simple Ways to Organize Your Kitchen Utensils Today

Everyone has kitchen utensils, probably oodles & oodles of kitchen utensils.  Utensils you can’t live without, utensils you have never used, utensils you don’t know how to use and even utensils you don’t know where they came from.  Yep, everyone has utensils.

At our house we have two drawers, a Pampered Chef Tool Caddy & Crock and even two small lidded containers on our lazy Susan with “utensils.”  I LOVE my utensils and yes, you will notice than 80% of them are from Pampered Chef.  I used to sell it and I find it very helpful in aiding me in cooking and prepping with my EDS.  This is where I confess that I actually purged my collection of kitchen utensils less than a year ago, and I still have ALL of these left plus the two overflow containers on the lazy Susan.  I even revisited the sorting method for this series and I still kept them ALL.  I WANT them all.  I USE them all.  That means, I need to organize them all.

What about you ?  How many do you have?  Are they stored in a pretty, practical way that works for you?

If so, fantastic.  If not, we have put together this great list as well as a Pinterest Board full of AWESOME photos, ideas and links.

Click the photos or blue words below to take you to the original sites, more great ideas and DIY tutorials.  We tried to inspire you by sharing items you could find within your home or create in a day.  For more in depth projects or items to purchase, be sure to follow our Kitchen Utensil Organization Board here.

12+ Simple Ways to Clear & Organize Your Kitchen Counter Today

I don’t know about your house, but ours could definitely use more counter space.  We have a large island, but we TRY (emphasis on TRY) to keep it clear to be used as a prep area, serving area and work space.  I must admit we do not always succeed, but we try.

When I took a poll recently the top three items people felt were cluttering their kitchen counters were

Zero Budget Scarecrow How-To

Today I want to introduce you to Front Porch Frank.  He is our newest Scarecrow and my new best friend.  He listens to my problems, doesn’t talk back and scares me every time I round the corner because I forget he’s there.  Yep, it is an entertaining sight for the neighbors I’m sure since I tend to be deep in thought and suddenly I am squealing and grabbing my heart because there is a man sitting on my front porch. This is where I confess Frank has been in the same chair, same location for well over 2 weeks so I should be used to his company, but those boots still surprise me every.single.time.

Menu Monday #21 & Modified Taco Salad Recipe

menu-monday-week-21

Welcome to Menu Monday #21!  This week’s menu is chock full of soups, easy prep and my birthday dinner.  Yep, this lady turned the ripe old age of 43 today.  How did I spend it?  Blogging and doing laundry/housework and I LOVED it!!!  Yep, I do enjoying blogging when it is a fun subject like the scarecrow how-to I am sharing for workshop Wednesday and I also enjoy homemaking when it isn’t done in a rush or overly stressful.  Weird?  Maybe.  But it’s the truth.

I am not sharing a weekly shopping trip this week because I made the decision to only buy what we absolutely need to complete our menu.  And to be honest it won’t be much.  We grabbed Gatorades, Soda, Water & Milk over the weekend while they were on sale and I just don’t want to fill the fridge and cabinets before we begin Organized October (details to come).

Menu Monday #20 & Weekly Shopping Trip

Menu Monday #20

After a crazy week last week that ended with some serious menu adjustments, I am happy to say I believe this week should be fairly smooth sailing despite the virus some of us seem to have.  The jello is already made, menu is set and I am grabbing groceries later today.

I finally began using my Kindle Fire to keep lists on and the results have been AMAZING.  I will share more on why I like it so much soon.

This week isn’t expected to be super busy besides pet visits and babysitting, so I planned a few more time consuming meals full of comfort foods.  It isn’t quite fall temps but we are beginning to enjoy our fall foods anyway?  How about you?  Are you experiencing the exciting foods of fall?  Look for new recipes?  I know we are and I absolutely LOVE the cream cheese icing recipe we used last week.

Check out our Fall Food Pinterest Board and discover even more from warm, cozy drinks to delicious casseroles and desserts, I know we plan to.  Let us know which ones you enjoyed and which ones to avoid!!! Click here to continue reading the full post »
