No matter how disorganized our bedrooms, bathrooms, or living rooms get, we're still going to sleep, shower, and watch Netflix in them. But clutter of the kitchen variety has the power to make us kiss cooking goodbye altogether. Tidy and well-stocked kitchens make for a welcoming space — but when silverware drawers, spice racks, and cabinets get out of hand, our desire to make a homemade meal goes in the garbage (that should have been be taken out yesterday).
Starting from square one with a deep kitchen clean or restructuring seems daunting, but it doesn't have to be. In order to avoid blowing our future grocery budgets on one too many takeout orders, we rounded up the top storage essentials to help keep those messes at bay. Scroll on to stock up on the organization goods that will help to manage all your gadgets and groceries — and also prevent your kitchen from turning into the wild, wild West (cue counter tumbleweed made from miscellaneous crumbs).
