21 Reader Spaces: Kitchen Extravaganza

Day one of the rockin' Reader Space week begins today!  Let's get right to it shall we?

CC shows us that shoe pockets rule in the pantry!  Who knew?

And that you can label slotted shelves with circular tags!  Genius girl!

Tiffany shares her super impressive recipe binder:

Barb DIY'd an adorable menu planning board!

The DIY Newlyweds shared a lovely spice cabinet before and after!

Along with an incredible freezer one as well!

April gives us a real life example of what a kitchen should look like if your are serious about whipping your cupboards or pantry into organized shape!

Brittany had me drooling over her new pantry, and offered tons of other organizing ideas for around the kitchen!

Jessica gives us a full kitchen cabinet tour, and sports a pretty sweet kitchen back splash to boot!


I seriously love spice containers and Kim show us why...

My girl, Jen, has another sweet pantry!  I adore the light bulb storage!

Heather gives us a peek around her organized kitchen, and shares how she saves money by meal planning!

Angie set up an organized oatmeal station!  I am so smitten for all those toppings!

Ashley has a brilliant tip for keeping everything in it's place!

And I couldn't have been more excited to have gotten an email from a friend of mine, who loves to bake as much as I love to organize!  As you can see, she has an organizing gene in her as well!!

Now if I could snag up that baking gene...

Thank you blog buddies for all of the fun ideas and for showing us why you heart your organized kitchen spaces!  Let's get chatty and share your absolute favorite tip for staying organized in the kitchen!

I will start.  Mine is to meal plan.  Taking the few minutes to invest in planning out meals saves us so much money at the grocery store and gives us a "go to" instead of hitting up a "drive thru".

Your turn!  Ready?  Set?  Go!!


  1. Great ideas! I keep 're-organizing' my cabinets every other week- which tells me my 'system' isn't working. Maybe some of these idea's will help me come up with one that works!

  2. I am tickled to death that you featured my little ole' kitchen!! enjoy your vacation!!


  3. My email notification started going nuts and I had no idea why since it's on an older post. Going through my RSS feed and coming across this I know why. Thanks so much for the feature! I'm so honored. =]

  4. Ohmygosh I'm dying over some of these! Jessica's chalkboard backsplash has to be my all time fav though! Off to stalk her bloggy! <3

    ooh! and I finished the first room in the new casa! Bathroom at Tiffany's

    Whatcha think? <3

  5. Thanks so much for featuring my spice cabinet and freezer organization! I'm so flattered!

    I'm also happy to report that my spice cabinet and freezer are still looking nice and neat, so the organization worked!

  6. So many awesome and inspiring kitchen spaces! Thanks for sharing them

  7. Have a blast on vacation Jen!!!! Love this idea of all the reader spaces all week! too much fun!

  8. Yea! You featured my fridge spice wall! That made my day. :)

    Thanks for your great ideas. Can't wait to borrow some for our daughter's room and home office. Have a terrific week!

  9. Ever say goodbye to your favorite white shirt because of embarrassing stains? Well now you don't have to, thanks to RAISE! Check out today's Clos-ette Solutions to find out what all the rave is about.

  10. I just posted about my kitchen reorganization over at my blog! Weird. Here are some of my favorite tips and tricks:

  11. Having my pantry and fridge labeled has made everything so much easier! I know what I have for meal planning, what I need so there's only one trip to the store, and I (especially Husband)can find things quickly.

    Thanks so much for the feature! I may have slightly freaked out a bit. In a good way. I love your blog and consider you an organizing guru! I'm totally flattered by your shout out! Have a great vacation!


    I just revamped my pantry today too! :)

  13. Ahhh! I'm tickled to be featured, as this is my favorite blog, and all of these other ideas are so fabulous! My tip for staying organized: never go to bed with a dirty dish. Otherwise they just pile up in our home!

    Loving the idea of this week even though I'll miss your original posts, Jen! But it's fun to see inspiration from all of my fellow readers!

  14. A favorite tip? Hmm...finding clear containers that fit your space really well, and emptying boxes/bags from the store into them. Especially with cereal...I swear no two cereal boxes are the same size, and there's no way the big ones would fit in my cupboard, so having plastic cereal dispensers is a lifesaver!

  15. Note to self: get into the kitchen tomorrow and organise the pantry!!!

    *insert roll of eyes here*

    I KNOW I have cooking chocolate somewhere... I just can't seem to place my hands on it at the moment :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. Seeing that DIY menu planner made me want to share mine! Hello chalkboard paint and vinyl cuts!

  17. Jen thanks so much for featuring my Pantry. I'm so tickled pink with delight. :) You really put a smile on my face. I heart this blog soooo much! Have a great vacation! Off to check out all the other blogs you featured. :)

  18. I am totally looking for light bulb storage (got a great deal on some, now i need the room). You made the comment..."My girl, Jen, has another sweet pantry!I adore the light bulb storage!" but I can't seem to find what you are talking about. Must be too early over here on the West Coast (Seattle) to find it!

  19. Hi Jen! Thank you so much for sharing our oatmeal breakfast bar! We are certainly using it every morning now that the weather has turned quite chilly! I am so very grateful for the feature..along with all of the other terrifc features! I think it's so nice how we all inspire each other! Have a wonderful Wednesday! Angie xo

  20. OMG!
    This is aboslutely the best find of the year! I am so happy I found your blog the day before this awesome giveaway! I've spent hours going through all of your content!

    My favorite item from See Jane Work has to be the Bamboo Desktop Dry-Erase Board!!!

    Oh but the leather portfolios are so cute too!

    Ok... practically anything in the eco-friendly section is a must-have for me :)
