A couple months after we moved into our house, we remodeled our kitchen. All we really wanted was to replace our sink, but one thing led to another and bang! New kitchen.
Ok, the layout is still the same, but we changed the cabinet color, the sink, upgraded appliances, added backsplash, and installed new counters. The counters are the star of the show.

For that reason, I keep clutter off the counter as best I can. I don’t want to cover up the gorgeousness. Plus, it’s nice to have a functional kitchen where things are in the areas where food is prepared (like the fresh baked bread pictured…I’m so hungry right now).
Today I’m sharing 2 organizers to curb kitchen clutter.
I used both of these organizers in my kitchen. Both have added efficiency to my kitchen and both prevent clutter from piling up on the counters or in the cabinets.
I just realized both organizers I’m sharing are for drawers, so yeah…
Organizer #1: In-Drawer Knife Block
Honestly, that knife block that came with our knife set takes up a lot of valuable real estate on the kitchen counter. Plus, I would have to store them near a wall. Since I do all my chopping on the kitchen island it makes sense to keep the knives in that vicinity as well. I use this in-drawer knife block from Amazon, and it’s definitely one of my favorite kitchen organizers. I just open the drawer when I’m ready to chop without needing to turn this way and that to find a knife.
Organizer #2: Spice Drawer Organizer
Our kitchen has plenty of lower cabinets and drawers but limited upper cabinets. Usually it makes sense to keep spices in a cabinet next to the stove, but I need space for my drinking glasses (next to the refrigerator) and my dishes (near the dishwasher). I have three deep drawers right next to the stove that are perfect for storing my spices. I use this spice drawer organizer to keep my spices from sliding around and staying organized.
Let’s face it: when you have a spice cabinet, spices tend to get lost in the back and we end up with duplicates. I have duplicates in my drawer from the spice cabinet days. Storing my spices this way allows me to see everything I have in one quick glance without needing to shift things around.
(That’s yet another way organizing your home can save you money.)
