New Ways To Use A Kitchen Cabinet Organizer

Organizing products just rock! One of the great things about them is that they can be used in all sorts of different ways. Today I'm spotlighting the cabinet organizer.

It's typically sold in the kitchen section of retail stores, but it can be utilized for getting organized in any room of the house. Below are 12 different ways to employ this type of organizing product. Enjoy!

Right Side Up (as shown in the photo above)

You can use a kitchen organizer in the way it was originally made for, and that is shown in the photo above. In this case, it's being utilized to sort and store pans for easy access. You know, you avoid all that uncomfortable lifting that usually accompanies retrieving heavy pans from a cabinet.

You can also use it in a kitchen cabinet to separate and organize plates. It's the same concept as the pans - avoid all that stacking and lifting (and possible breaking).

Huh? This is actually a really, really useful one that I came across on Pinterest. You know how you can have plates of leftovers, and it's hard to stack stuff on top of them? Then you end up wasting valuable fridge space in that area above the plate. Employing a cabinet organizer in the refrigerator solves this problem beautifully. See it in action here.

Turned On Its Side

Turn the kitchen cabinet organizer on its side, and a whole new world of possibilities opens up. Rather than organizing items horizontally, you can now store things that require vertical dividers.

For example, you could use it to keep the following organized:

  • baking sheets
  • cutting boards
  • serving trays
  • paper or plastic plates


So far I've only talked about using a kitchen cabinet organizer in the kitchen, but it can be utilized in every other room in the house.

Here are some bonus examples:

  1. Kid's stuff like puzzles or large books (turned on its side)
  2. Office items like files or magazines (turned on its side)
  3. Linens to avoid toppling piles
  4. Clutches (turned on its side)
  5. Pantry items in bags like chips (turned on its side)
