In the last week I’ve had multiple emails about organizing kitchen cupboards. From what to do with deep cupboards to what to do with shallow ones. My answer is the same for both….baskets! I’m pretty sure baskets, bins, containers, whichever word you use, they must have been sent from heaven as a gift to overwhelmed homemakers everywhere.
They make a difference.
They set limits and boundaries.
Take for example my snack basket on my shallow cupboard shelf. I could pull out many different boxes of treats and pile them high in my hands or I can pull out one basket with ease.
Need to organize your Tassimo coffee discs? Use baskets.
Need to organize your tea? Use baskets.
Need to organize and contain your spices? Use baskets.
Need to organize and contain your baking supplies? Use baskets.
If you’ve got deep shelves, store infrequently used small appliances at the back and baskets in the front. Easy to pull out and grab what you need.
It doesn’t matter.
They are all lovely and functional to me.
