When we planned our kitchen remodel we made sure to map out every cupboard & drawer so we would know where things would go and what kind of storage we would need. I knew I wanted to have a drawer for my spices in my island as well as a drawer that I could keep all my flour, sugar and baking staples . I recently finished organizing & labeling the drawer and I wanted to share it with you! I have been using it for a couple of months now and I love how convenient it is having everything at my fingertips instead of having to walk over to the pantry for everything. I love it!
I use the Prepworks Prokeepers Storage Set for storing my flours and sugars and I love how they are designed. The flour keeper has a device to help you level your flour when it’s in the measuring cup, the brown sugar keeper has a terra cotta disc to help keep your brown sugar fresh. They truly have thought of everything. If you have a Costco nearby, I highly recommend checking to see if they have the 6-pc set in stock. I got one of my sets there when it was on sale for $23.99. Their normal price is $29.99, which is a steal because the regular price for the set is $59.99. Here are a few other places you can pick up the containers:
I own 2 of the 6 piece sets and I bought an additional flour keeper because I wanted my sugar storage to be the same size as the flour containers. I use the extra containers in my pantry for items that don’t get used as much like oats, corn meal, cinnamon sugar, etc.
To make things easy for me, I labeled the top of each container. I used my Cricut to cut out black vinyl and adhere it to the top of each container. I used a font that I found at DaFont called Valentime. My Cricut is one of my favorite things I own, you can do so many things with it, like make custom tees, create holiday decor, make faux leather keychains and of course you can use it for labeling and so much more! The Cricut has been a huge help when it comes to labeling and organizing my home.
Other things I have in the drawer are a salt cellar, garlic keeper, mini prep bowls and I have a pepper cellar coming soon. Having all the supplies I need for baking and making marinades stored in my island has made baking and dinner prep so much more efficient. I have more kitchen organization planned for the refrigerator and a complete pantry overhaul. If you have any organizational tips for the kitchen, I’d love to hear them!
