In the spirit of organizing in small chunks, one area at a time, I'm sharing how I organized under my kitchen sink this past fall. My results aren't as pretty as those who use pull out drawers or boxes and labels and such, but it's better than the before and it works for me.
Just how bad was the before? See for yourself. Everything was just thrown under there and I could never find what I was looking for.
So I set out to remedy this. I took out everything. Boy was the kitchen floor a mess that day. The key steps to organizing anything are to purge, sort, and then contain. Many of the items were expired and just needed to be trashed. Some things were moved to a new location. The remaining items were grouped somewhat and then placed in baskets and bins. I also used an extending shelf to add a little more room. I repurposed a empty Target nut container into storage for the dishwasher pellets. (Bottom left hand corner). Sometimes product packaging isn't very functional and it helps to find a new container.
Now I can see what's under there. Wish I could do something about that plumbing and disposal hook up but...
My favorite part was adding a command hook to the inside of the cabinet door and hanging my fun lime green mini brush and dust pan.
Hope this gives you some inspiration to just tackle one small area and start getting organized! Also check out Get Organized- The Kitchen 10 ways and 9 Creative ways to set up a Coffee Station while your are here.
