1. Stackable storage baskets

'To save space in my kitchen cabinets and pantry, I look for stackable storage baskets and bins,' says Janelle Cohen, author of The Folding Book (also on Amazon) and founder of Straighten Up by Janelle. 'These types of baskets and bins can easily be stacked on top of each other, allowing you to maximize vertical space.'

One tip, though? Measure first. 'Before choosing storage bins, measure the space where you plan to put them. This will help you choose the right size of storage bins that fit your space and will hold the items you want to store. I take a picture of the space in the Notes app and then draw the measurements on the photo to have a good visual when I’m at the store,' says Cohen.

2. Glass food storage

Convenient leftover food storage is a must in a well-organized kitchen, according to Catherine McCord, Founder of Weelicious and author of Meal Prep Magic, also available at Amazon

'I want to really see the food in my pantry, fridge, and freezer,' says McCord. When you use durable, clear containers, you’re more apt to see foods that might have been overlooked. My go-to are organizers are glass containers made with tempered glass that have different-colored lids, and are easy to microwave in.'

When she had her first child in 2007, she discovered there was no comprehensive guide that offered new parents simple, nutritious, flavorful recipes and guidance on how to feed their new eaters. So, she created Weelicious, which now addresses not just baby's mealtime but the whole family's. In 2015 she launched One Potato, a meal delivery service focused specifically on the dinnertime needs of families. 

3. Shelf risers

If you already have a collection of perfectly good storage baskets but they’re not stackable, don’t panic. That’s why shelf risers exist – they're ideal for better organizing kitchen cabinets, although they can be used on the countertop, too.

'Shelf risers are underrated,' says Cohen. 'They have so many functions and can reduce stacking of any kitchen item.'

4. Water bottle organizers

The rising trend of reusable water bottles is one we all love, but it does mean some cabinet space gets sacrificed. That’s why Cohen says she loves the new water bottle organizers: 

'Water bottle organizers have really blown me away! It is so hard to get the one you need on a shelf, and they fall over in a drawer,' she says. 'Water bottle organizers allow you to use vertical space and easily slide them in and out of your cabinet.'

If you are organizing a refrigerator, they are useful for keeping everything from ketchup and mayo to drinks bottles cool and neat. 

5. Glass spice organizers

If you have cabinet space for a spice rack or spice organizer, this one might not apply. But if you need to have them out on display and want to organize spices neatly, McCord gave us her top suggestion for keeping countertops visually clean and neat:

'My spice game totally changed when I invested in glass spice containers,' she explains. 'Not only do they look organized, but they have wide mouths so you can fit a tablespoon or larger spoon into them for easy measuring.'

6. Mason jars

Another food-prep organizing must-have, according to McCord, is one that’s easy to use in a variety of ways. They’re the much-loved Mason jars!

'I use different-sized Mason jars for storing sauces and soups in the fridge and freezer,' says McCord. Tall glass jars are also perfect for unboxing rice, pasta, beans, or candy in your pantry.'

Best of all, when not in use in the kitchen, you can use them as drink carafes for parties or vases for tablescape arrangements.  

7. Labeled woven baskets

Stackable baskets and bins are great, but if you have a cabinet that doesn’t have much vertical space, then McCord says to go for the aesthetics – but with a function, of course. 

'You want a basket that’s easy to clean and looks great in your pantry, too,' she says. These labeled woven baskets definitely fit the criteria. 

8. Lazy Susan turntable organizer

While the phrase ‘Lazy Susan’ could probably use an update, it’s still an organizing staple, according to Marcia Sloman of Under Control Organizing

'My must-have kitchen organizing item is the Lazy Susan turntable organizers,' she says. 'I think it’s the most underrated kitchen organizational item that more people should use – single-layer or tiered. Cabinet shelves can be deep, and many people use bins to organize items. When the bin is filled, it’s heavy to pull down off the shelf. The Lazy Susan can be filled with heavy cans and bottles. Items are no longer in the back of the cabinet. With a simple turn, you can see and retrieve any ingredient for your food preparation.'

Cohen agrees, noting that she uses hers in place of a traditional spice rack. 'Spice racks make it hard to see what’s in the back, and when you try to grab something from the last row, they all fall over,' she says. 'A Lazy Susan gives you visibility and accessibility.'

Her specialty focuses on help for individuals challenged by ADHD, anxiety, medical issues, or life changes such as job changes, birth, death, moving, or divorce.

9. Under-cabinet utensil organizers

In-drawer utensil organizers and countertop utensil crocks are kitchen staples, but Sloman says there’s one item she loves that frees up valuable drawer space and counter space:

'One kitchen organization item that has really blown my mind with its functionality is the under-cabinet utensil organizer,' she says. 'Utensils such as spatulas, ladles, whisks, mixing spoons, and slotted spoons are the most often needed when cooking. If you need quick access to these utensils, you don’t want to fidget in a drawer to find one. Having an under cabinet-mounted carousel is useful functionality, especially if there is limited countertop space or drawer space.'

In the past, we've looked at what all the most organized kitchens have in common. Two of the most pertinent are that they have had a good, regular decluttering session (our kitchen decluttering checklist can help with this) and they have great kitchen storage ideas. The latter is nothing without the former.
