Organizing Pans in the Kitchen

Kitchens seem to be the room in the house that need the most organizing. When Handy Man pulled apart our kitchen, I had to stack all of our kitchen stuff in another room.  When the kitchen was finished and I had to move everything back, I took the opportunity to go through everything. Again. 

I donated some items, and tried to put things back in a way that made more sense. One of the things that helped to store my baking pans was this wooden gadget, shown above. I had seen something similar in a magazine, and told Handy Man that I wanted one for my baking sheets and pans in one of our cabinets. 

What a difference it made! It's so much easier to take out items when I need them. Handy Man even made the system flexible, so I could remove sections to make them larger or smaller.

If you have a Handy Person in your house, perhaps you could ask them to make one for you. Or, see if you can find something similar online. Even if you don't have the best storage in your kitchen cabinets, try a little rearranging. Take out the contents of one drawer or cabinet, go through everything, and put back only what you use. 

Anyone else need a kitchen declutter?

Great idea! I'm going to show DH that (even though he isn't handy, he knows guys who are.) And I agree about clutter -- if you haven't used it in the past few years, toss it. I need to do this more often. Also, when I purge, I go through things once and then again and get rid of even more. (Maybe even a third time.) Same thing with photos when I do my albums!
