Here’s a fun fact: Over the last three years, The Kitchn has written more than 100 posts about organizing. We’ve covered everything from spice storage to pantry planning. We’ve shared tips on how to arrange deep kitchen drawers and tame Tupperware cupboards. We’ve dug into pegboards, pot racks, and the pains of storing pot lids. We’ve cleared off countertops and reorganized cabinets.
