Who couldn’t use a bit more closet rod space? 

Today I thought I would share some of the great tools we use to fit two teenage girls into one closet without being overcrowded or messy.  I had never even heard of most of these items before I joined Clever Container, but now I wonder how we survived the tiny house we used to live in without them.  Please don’t think this is a sales pitch.  It isn’t, BUT I am leaving a link to my Clever Facebook page so you can discover more inspiration.  I am also sharing DIY, Amazon and Dollar Store alternatives to help you put your special touch on things.

Under the Bathroom Sink

Are your refrigerator and freezer organized?

Do you want them to be organized? 

I know I do.  I also know that refrigerator/freezer organization is something our house struggles with every.single.day.  If it isn’t bad enough, that no two bottles can be the same size, they have to be varying shapes too.  Factor in various leftovers, fruit and veggies, food intolerances and allergies and your refrigerator/freezer can begin to look like a war zone.

Hopefully, some of these refrigerator freezer organization tools, tips and hacks will help you (and me) do just that.

18 Sensible Food and Pantry Organization Items That YOU Can Use.

18-snensible-food-pantry-items-fb

While, I love all those beautiful pantries where everything is colored coded, has a perfect home and is organized in beautifully coordinated labeled pieces, I realize that for many of us having fancy food and pantry organization is simply not possible.  We are happy just to be even remotely organized.  I think that beautiful, matching, color coded pantries are great, BUT I think that  “Using what you have, where you are, for what you need”, especially while you are trying to build your emergency fund or pay off debt, is even more important.  Being organized in the kitchen can save you money, but I don’t feel it’s necessary to go broke to get there.  I know we didn’t.

14 Fun, Simple Ways to Organize Your Kitchen Utensils Today

14 Fun, Simple Ways to Organize Your Kitchen Utensils Today

14-fun-simple-ways-to-organize-your-kitchen-utensils-today-fb

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.
