9. Plastic Storage Bins

I use these to hold extra fruit and snacks in the fridge, as well as organizing pantry shelves. They are stackable, durable, and the clear plastic helps you keep track of the contents.

15. Glass Storage Containers

If you’re investing in food storage containers, which not choose glass? These are from Anchor Hocking, so I believe the glass jar is made in the USA, based on their website.

I love these spice trays from IKEA. Can’t beat the $4 price, either!

20. Plastic Bag Holder

Collect and reuse plastic bags in a holder like this. Or make a DIY version using an empty tissue box – just stick it to the inside of a cabinet door using command strips.

21. Kitchen Conversion Chart Decal

Such a brilliant idea! You can order these decals in a range of colors and apply to the back of a cabinet door or side of a cabinet. There are many designs on Etsy – just search for “kitchen conversion decal.”

Here are some great apps to help you stay organized in the kitchen, too!

26. Paprika Recipe Manager

I’ve used this app for years and still love it. It’s $5 and one of the only apps I’ve actually paid for, but it works really well to organize online recipes. Plus, I love that it keeps my device turned on while I’m cooking, so I don’t have to keep unlocking the screen with messy hands.

27. Cook Smarts

My friend recommends this meal planning service, especially for busy families juggling various food allergies and diets.

28. AnyList

I use AnyList constantly and I have multiple lists running, based on stores where we frequently shop. You can share lists with someone else and add all kinds of details your items. Highly recommend.

Go Forth and Organize!

Good luck! Please send me links to any other gadgets or tools you love. Have a great week, friends.
