Kitchen Organizing Tips from Kathryn at Do It On A Dime

Hey there friends! So I’m not sure whether I’ve ever mentioned this here before but I love watching organizing videos on YouTube. I get such a high from watching others get just as excited about the organizing process as I do. Basically I often turn to YouTube if I need an organizing fix fast. Which is pretty often for this organizing junkie. This past week as I was watching Kathryn from Do It On A Dime organize her friend’s kitchen I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. The kitchen organizing tips she provides in this video are just gold. I had to talk about this awesomeness with someone. Thank goodness I have a blog and all of you to share my organizing love with.

In case you’ve never heard of Kathryn’s YouTube channel before, let me fill you in. Do It On A Dime is one of my favorite YouTube channels and she’s almost at 1 million subscribers! Her channel focus is all about how she lives a beautiful, organized life on a budget. Her videos include everything from DIY projects and crafts, to dollar store hauls and organization videos. The organization videos are my favorite though. Duh! 🙂

Anyway Kathryn has done a number of videos sharing kitchen organizing tips and I wanted to include three of them in this post so you could see why I love her so much. I’m going to embed them here to make them easy for you to view along with a few of my favorite highlights from each video. So many great takeaways to help you get your kitchens organized without breaking the bank!

Small Kitchen Organization:

The first one is the one I mentioned above where Kathryn helps organize her friend’s kitchen.


  • Do the decisions you’ve previously made about a space actually work for your life right now?
  • Keeping things simple is really key
  • Invest in items that will make a really big impact in the space
  • Keep items by category all in one area
  • When you love what you have, you have everything you need.

Kitchen Organization on a Dime:

Easy Dollar Tree organizing ideas, quick hacks and how to save big organizing in the kitchen.


  • If we keep it, it’s because we actually use it
  • Organizing containers do not have to be expensive
  • Use wire shelves for more space in your cabinets
  • Inexpensive shoe organizers over your doors for cups and snacks

Kitchen Cleaning & Organizing:

Kathryn shows you her favorite dollar tree solutions, motivation, and decluttering in another friend’s kitchen.


  • Extra clutter creates lack of direction in a space
  • Decluttering doesn’t have to be a burden
  • Use the arms reach rule – all the things you need to access on a frequent basis should be so easy to get to
  • Your clutter is not the boss of you!

So good right!? Kathryn is the just cutest and I think I would love hanging out with her in real life. But she doesn’t know me so I totally recognize how stalkerish that sounds. Oops.

    Thank you for sharing Kathryn’s Videos. I usually only YouTube when I need to know how to do something. But I can watch Kathryn with a cup of coffee in the morning….beats combing Craig’s list for furniture bargains that I don’t really “need,” which is what I usually do with my cup of coffee after everyone else is out the door. She’s an inspiring way to start the day!

    The great items you show the stores
    near me never have. You talked about banner stores. What is that? You showed a chart for best buy items. The store is never stocked with even advertised items. I sort of lost interest in Dollar tree because I can never find what is advertised or the items shown in you tube.

      Hi Barbara, you would have to go over to Kathryn’s Youtube channel to ask her your questions directly. The closet Dollar Tree to me is two hours away sadly.
