As you know we have a galley kitchen. Galley kitchen’s aren’t known for their great storage solutions. When we first renovated the kitchen, my husband added a small pantry area. It’s been such a life saver, but I still have to be very creative with how I store everything.
I partnered with Bed Bath & Beyond to bring in some simple solutions that have already made a big impact! You can see below that my cabinets have been a mess. During the holidays I literally just shoved everything in. Keep reading to see the magic that was made, thanks to Bed Bath & Beyond.
I mean, there was no order whatsoever. In between entertaining and baking, I just ignored the mess. But we all know that once the New Year hits, we get the organizing bug. For me, I took everything out of my pantry, took inventory of what I needed to get organized, and then headed to my local Bed Bath & Beyond.
This area was easy to clean out and make pretty. How fantastic is this bread box?! Call me old fashioned, but I love me a wooden roll top bread box. We eat a lot of sourdough toast and sandwiches in our house, so it’s important to be able to store it away. This whole unit is full of items that I use on a regular basis, like our electric tea kettle. I also organized all of our baking items in jars and these storage bins. For me, it’s all about being able to see what I have available. This way I am not over buying anything.
For our food cabinet, I needed to create some magic. As you can see it was a mess. Our kids pretty much eat the same snacks constantly, which makes it easy to store food items in containers.
In the end, I chose these pop lid containers for our snacks, nuts, cereals and more. It really has been a game changer! My kids can see what’s available. They also don’t make giant messes with boxes and wrappers now.
Under our cooktop, we store all of our spices, oils and sauces. As you can see, it was another mess. And it was super annoying to have to reach in and feel for what I needed.
We found these Real Simple under cabinet organizers that quickly created order to this out of order space. And now all I need to do is pull them out to see what I need.
It’s amazing to me how it’s simple changes that make such a big difference when it comes to organizing. I am thrilled with how everything functions now!
