Cluttered kitchen cabinets, a jam-packed pantry, crowded countertops—if your kitchen feels too stuffed to fit another jar of everything bagel seasoning, you need some genius kitchen storage ideas to help you make the most of every inch of space.

Start your reorganization by taking stock of what you have. Pull everything out of your kitchen cupboards (and dump out your junk drawer!) and winnow down your kitchen gear where you can—expired spices, snack containers without lids, duplicates, things that are broken or missing parts, and rarely-used small appliances are some good places to start cutting back.

Then, try a few of these genius kitchen cabinet storage ideas from professional organizers and cookbook authors to help you streamline what you’re keeping and make your kitchen organization work for you.

Tiny kitchen? Be selective about what you buy in bulk. “A five-pound bag of coffee makes sense because you drink it every morning, but a 10-pound bag of rice doesn’t,” says Andrew Mellen, New York City–based organizer and author of Unstuff Your Life!  “Focus on carving out room in your cabinets. Boxed items are filled with air, so you can fit more of those products on shelves if you decant into sealable square canisters. To optimize your small kitchen organization, move mixing bowls, measuring cups, and other kitchen tools off the shelves and into a cart that can act as a food-prep zone. Last, collect loose items—tea bags, snack packs—in clear, stackable bins to keep them from cluttering up your space.”
