1 – GET RID OF THINGS YOU NO LONGER NEED
As obvious as it may sound, getting rid of kitchen items you no longer need is one of the best ways you can declutter your kitchen cupboards. Has been a long time since you last cleaned out your kitchen cupboards? That’s ok. Keep in mind it is less overwhelming to tackle the job in “baby steps” that to try and conquer it all in one session.
Tackle one cupboard at a time over a week in order to not feel overwhelmed. If you’re like me and have no time for that you can get it all finished in a day by focusing on eliminating all of the items you no longer want or need in one go. Place three large baskets in the kitchen. Label them: keep, donate, rubbish. Keep going until every item in your kitchen cupboards have placed in one of the baskets. If you have some great items you no longer want but can make some money from, then create a “sell” basket to place them in. Once you have sieved through the clutter, find a home for all of the items you are keeping.
2 – USE DOOR SPACE
If you’re ignoring the back of each and every one of your cupboard doors, you’re missing out on a ton of hidden storage space. It’s very easy to utilize this overlooked real estate to hang small utensils, chopping boards, Spices and more!
Go one step further, to create a secret message center. Use chalkboard paint to paint the inside of one of your most-used cupboard doors. If painting isn’t your thing, line the door with corkboard. The second option even gives you a handy place to pin some of your favorite recipes.
3 – SWITCH TO A CLEAR GLASS STORAGE OPTION
Clear glass containers are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Switching to this storage option not only keeps your kitchen cupboards organized and your food fresher longer, it makes it very simple to locate the specific ingredient you’re looking for without the need to hunt for it.

Jazz up the containers by downloading cute labels, readily available with a click of your mouse. Perform a quick Internet search. Chances are, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all of the labeling options you come up with.
4 – STORE FLAT ITEMS UPRIGHT
Storing flat kitchen essentials such as cookie sheets and cutting boards typically takes up a great deal of valuable cupboard space. Yes, you can stack other items on top of them. But, then you have to “un-stack” everything to get to what you need at the bottom.
What’s the solution? Store flat items upright in your cupboard or even in the space between your stove or refrigerator and the cupboard. If you don’t want them to come in direct contact with the floor, put them in a wire filing rack.
