This simple organization step I recently took might just be my favorite thing I’ve done so far in my kitchen! I can’t tell you how great it is to have my measuring cups and spoons organized and hanging in plain site. NO MORE digging around in drawers trying to find them!
The first thing I did was buy small hooks. I got mine from Target. I knew if I was going to display my measuring cups and spoons out in plain sight, they would need to be nice looking, so I looked around for these while at Target, too. Giada and her awesome brand of measuring cups and spoons is what I stumbled upon and fell for instantly. I love the simplicity of them & I think they look quite sharp hanging under my cabinet in the kitchen.
I have VERY limited space in my kitchen. Especially drawer space…remember this post? I only have 2 drawers….yes, I said TWO! Oh, and a half size junk drawer…so 2 1/2! One is taken up by our silverware, so really that only leaves me one drawer for kitchen utensil storage. Do you see why I need to get creative in efficient kitchen utensil storage?
Peek-a-boo! I see you! Do you see me?
I honestly have found myself baking more often since organizing my measuring cups and spoons. These 3 jar canisters that I keep out on my counter under the measuring cups and spoons hold whole wheat flour, unbleached white flour and organic cane sugar. It is amazing how handy it is to have the things you need in an easy to grab place! I also have baking powder, baking soda, salt and yeast in mason jars, in a nearby handy location. I’ve been doing so much baking, especially this Whole Wheat Bread
from the bread machine and these Whole Wheat Honey Banana Muffins
, that both my flour canisters were empty on photo day!
Amazing what a little organization can do!

Oh I love it! So clean and tidy! I kept my spoons in a mug along with a couple of small knives. My measuring cups stack neatly in the drawer. I don’t have a problem with my set up but I think yours is prettier. 🙂

I’ve been wanting to do something different with my measuring cups and spoons…and I think that this might be the idea I was looking for. Thank You!

I love that idea! We are always scrambling to find those, tossed around a drawer.
