{re}organized kitchen: section 3

I had my eye on a few storage containers from Ikea for a while now and I was finally able to go this weekend. I love how simple and affordable they are, and thought they would be perfect for storing all of my baking supplies. Plus this image has been stuck in my brain ever since I first saw it!


Here is a rough layout of our kitchen. 


And, here is what section 3 looks like from the other side of the kitchen.


I have already talked about section1 (here) and section 2 (here). 

I'm going to post a before and after picture, and then talk about what I did with each drawer/cabinet.

Okay, so not a lot happened here. I just got rid of some vases we hadn't used in a while which allowed things to look less cluttered.

This is now my favorite drawer to open up and look at. Please tell me I'm not the only one that does that?! It's so pretty now and I just can't help it. This used to be my "jumk drawer" until I made drawer organizers to contain all that "junk" in the entry table. Since this drawer was empty and right under my Keurig, it is just the spot for all my k-cups and coffee sweeteners.

Here, I went through and got rid of a few items and straightened everything up. Not only does it look better, it is also easier to get things in and out of this cabinet.

This cabinet had gotten so bad that things started falling out every time I opened the doors. I have a bruise to prove it! I was storing all my baking supplies in here, but found a better option for those items this weekend (more on that later this week!). Clearing out all that stuff made a huge difference and this cabinet isn't a safety hazard anymore!

The changes in these four drawers were minor. I got rid of a couple of things, cleaned out the drawers, and straightened everything up. 



So, that officially completes my kitchen cabinet tour. I'm sure each and everyone of you were on the edge of your seats for these three posts!

 I don't know about y'all but I'm super nosy about how and what people store in their cabinets. If it were acceptable, I would totally peek into every single one of your kitchen cabinets and drawers!

But, that would be weird so let's just stick with this...what kitchen organization tips and tricks do y'al have for me?
