Get your kitchen organized with these simple and affordable dollar store kitchen organization ideas! Pick up these 6 items on your next dollar store shopping trip to easily organize your counter, drawers, fridge and cabinets.
January’s a great time to get organized, even if you’re not a huge fan of cleaning and organization like me! I need easy organizing solutions, so if you’re the same you might also like these simple ways to organize your kitchen this new year with 6 dollar store items.
1: Woven Plastic Baskets
I love the plastic woven baskets from Dollarama, and they come in a variety of colours that will match any decor. I used white ones to organize my Tupperware / plastic storage containers . They’re great for corralling smaller items, and in my Tupperware drawer I’ve used them to store all of the container lids and smaller items. I also used one on my counter to store all of our electronics. The small holes in the woven style baskets are handy to thread charging cords though to phones and tablets. Don’t forget to measure your drawers before you head to the dollar store, and bring your measuring tape with you to find perfectly sized baskets and bins for your space.
2: Patterned Drawer Liners
The rolls of rubbery drawer liners you can find at the dollar store are a wonderful way to protect the bottoms of your drawers and cabinet shelves while making them look pretty and organized. I cut these liners to size and use them to line all of my kitchen cabinet drawers and shelves.
3: Clear Plastic Bins
Clear containers are a great organization solution for people like me that like to see items in order to remember they’re there! The clear bins you can find at the dollar store (I found these at Dollarama) can come in all shapes and sizes and they work so well for organizing the contents of your fridge. I used some to organize the snacks, meats, leftovers and drinks in our fridge, and I used my Cricut machine to cut out labels to stick on the containers to help keep things in the right spot. You could also use a white chalk pen to hand write labels on your clear containers.
Instead of shuffling jars of food around your fridge to find things, try using a dollar store turntable to help organize and find things easily. I found a couple plastic turntables at Dollarama, arranged all of my jars of jam and condiments on them, and it made a huge difference in how our fridge looks and how easy it is to find things.
5: Adhesive Hooks
In the kitchen tools section of the dollar store, you can often find several different adhesive hooks in a variety of sizes and colours that are handy to use in your kitchen to organize all sorts of things. I’ve seen people use them to hang things inside their cupboard doors like measuring cups and spoons, and I’ve used one to hang my apron on the inside of my pantry door.
6: Cupboard Door Caddy
The over-the-door caddies you can find at the dollar store work wonders for under sink organization. I’ve used one to store our dish scrubbies, dish brush and dish soap. Keeping things up and off the floor of your cabinets makes your cupboards look and function so much better.
