Sarah’s Organization Project: Kitchen Corner Cupboard

My organization project has slowed down around here, but with the twins coming in Feb it’s got me kicking things up into high gear before they get here.

To get me back in the swing of things I picked a small but very rewarding project…

the dreaded kitchen corner cupboard.

In the past I’ve found this odd shaped cupboard to be more of a nuisance than a help, and thoughtlessly crammed anything in there that was equally odd. Such as: magic bullets, waffle and ice cream makers.

However, I’m converted to the logic ‘less is more’ and found that everyday items such as napkins and straws can live here, and it can become a highly functional part of your kitchen. Take a peek…

As always using our very favorite $1 tubs saved the day. I labeled them: straws, utensils, cupcake liners, and napkins. By grouping bitty items in an enclosed space, ensures randoms don’t run wild!

It’s also super handy to arrange items towards the front of the cupboard, especially when they are so deep, you want things at your finger tips, you don’t want to go on a treasure hunt!


Project cost: $0 (already had everything)

Project time: 1 hour


Valuable kitchen space is more usable. Now when the hubby asks “where are the kitchen straws?”, I’ll say “in the bin labeled straws, darling!”

    I use my corner cupboard for my holiday dishes and large serving bowls. I do like your ideas though. Now I wish I had another corner cupboard just for random kitchen supplies.

    Our corner cabinet has a three tiered lazy suzan so we use it as a second pantry!
