25 Small Kitchen Organization Hacks From Dollar Tree

Let’s talk about some of the Dollar Tree kitchen organization products you can benefit from if you have a small kitchen.

When you have a small kitchen you need to make use of every square inch of space. Here are some of my favorite ways to maximize my space.

1. Pocket chart

I hung the pocket chart on the side of my refrigerator with some command strips. This is a great organizing hack for things like coupons and menus, business cards, and all sorts of things.

2. Narrow bins

I recently picked up some long narrow bins to use in my refrigerator. They are the perfect size for so many freezer and fridge storage solutions. They are just right for narrow side-by-side freezer refrigerators.

This organizing hack will cut your fridge and freezer cleaning time in half. You can use plastic placemats as shelf liners.

4. Plastic jugs

I picked up some plastic jugs from Walmart. The shape of the jugs saves space in the refrigerator. Plus, I can see how much is left since the jugs are transparent.

5. Smoothie

I found this great smoothie blend powder made from dehydrated fruit. It’s great for a quick and easy no-mess breakfast.

6. Fruit chew

Organic fruit chews are a great no-mess snack option. There are no colorings or preservatives so they might not be bright and attractive, but they are delicious.

7. Refrigerator containers

Since we downsized to a side-by-side freezer and fridge this variety of storage containers has been essential. They really help maximize the refrigerator space, keep our food fresh, and make it a breeze to keep track of what needs replenishing.

8. Cleaning the refrigerator

I found that organizing and cleaning out my refrigerator about once a week keeps me eating healthier. It also prevents me from wasting food.

11. Clean the outside of the refrigerator

Clean the fridge with a half water half vinegar solution. Simply spray it and wipe it down with a cloth.

12. Meal preparation

I like to use meal prep trays to help me control my portions. It’s also incredibly inconvenient to prepare meals in advance.

I like to use these trays to prepare my morning oatmeal breakfast. I fill the sections with oatmeal and fruits and nuts.

13. Window sill clutter solutions

I tend to put a lot of stuff on my kitchen window sill and the clutter just piles up.

I decided to buy a small tray and put it on my windowsill and use that for small things I want to leave there temporarily, such as jewelry I take off while cooking and cleaning.

14. Stovetop clutter solutions

I found a stainless steel, multi-use spoon rest. Not only is it the perfect place to rest my spoon while I’m cooking, but I can also use it to hold the lids of pots and pans I’m working with.

15. Once-a-week sink cleaning

Once a week I give my stainless steel sink a good scrub down with The Pink Stuff miracle cleaning paste. It’s milder than most cleansers and it smells great.

16. Mug storage

My small kitchen cabinet was cluttered with an excess of mugs.

Once I got rid of the extra mugs, I bought a mug hook. I attached it to the underside of the kitchen cabinets and the mugs look so nice and organized hanging from the hooks.

17. Refinishing the cabinet shelf

Installing those mug hooks left the tops of the screws poking out in the cabinet. To resolve this, I used small pieces of foam cut from a pool noodle. I put some shelf paper over it and now no one can tell the difference.

18. Pots and pan storage

I wanted to do some things to make my pots and pans storage a bit more convenient. I started by putting a motion-sensing puck light on the wall of the inside of the cupboard.

Then I got these metal pans and lid storage racks. I no longer have to take out all my cast iron skillets just to get to the one I need.

19. Store most used items at eye-level

I have arthritis so I have to avoid bending down. I store my most used items at eye-level.

20. Décor

Décor can be challenging when downsizing to a smaller home.

I decided to keep our décor simple and framed an old family heirloom of a recipe that has been passed down for generations. I love using mementos as décor, especially in a space as well used as the kitchen.

21. Organize under sink

Get the cabinet under your kitchen sink organized and in order to reduce clutter-overwhelm.

22. Lights

I added some rechargeable motion-sensing puck lights to the area to make it easier to see everything.

23. Minimize cleaning solutions

I minimized my cleaning sprays to just 3 basic solutions. There’s no need to flood your cabinets with cleaning solutions.

24. Transparent labeled bottles

Put homemade cleaning solutions in transparent spray bottles. I make 3 solutions. One is a counter spray, one is a glass spray, and the last is an all-purpose spray. I used my Cricut to label each one.

With a transparent bottle, I can keep track of how much is left.

25. Over-the-door hanging basket

I store my sprays and some clean rags under my sink in an over-the-door hanging basket.
