Last week, I organized my baking cabinet. I’m still amazed every time I open that door. It’s so pretty in there! I can find everything, too! Love it! Next week, we’re working on our pantry, so if you have any pantry tips, I’d love to hear them, so I can share with other readers what you do!
I don’t know if you’ve been following along with us in this series, but I do hope that you’re plodding along with me. Disorganized people like to know they’re not alone! If you are doing your own organizing in your house, tell me so in a comment or on Facebook. I’d love to hear from you! Even if you haven’t done the whole list yet….or even if you’re tackling a different part of the list. Tell me how it’s going!

This week, we’re working on our pots, pans and cookie sheets. For me, that means I get to clean out two cabinets. It’s funny. I usually dread my weekly assignment, but once it’s done, I am so glad that I did it! It’s been sooo nice to have things organized. I’m even keeping up with it…and quickly organize it again once I notice things getting out of control in those spaces again. It only takes a couple minutes or less if I stay on top of it!
My Before Pictures:
My Pots & Pans Cabinet
My Cookie Sheets:
Some of my pans, I got for my wedding, almost 19 years ago…so they’re in really bad shape. You can see the rust on my muffin tins. I have some circle pans that are getting pretty rusty, too. See….?
It’s hideous. I got a new cookie sheet for Christmas and that’s been so nice to have. Now it’s time to get some circle ones and some new muffin tins. I just ordered these from Amazon. I decided to get rid of the metal muffin tins and try out silicone for a change. We’ll see how I like them!
I also decided to order this little organizer for my cookie sheets. I think it will be very helpful to have them upright and not falling down all the time!
So….How do you organize your pots and pans and cookie sheets?
How many do you keep on hand?
How many is enough?
It’s so hard to know, because you sure don’t want to be without when you need another one.
Do you have a special way to keep them organized and under control?
When I asked on my Facebook page, how YOU keep YOUR pots and pans organized, here’s some of the ideas that were shared:
Candyannie says: Pots and pans under sink on wooden dish rack from dollar store. Casseroles and sheet pans under counter in an old metal file holder uprighted so different sizes go in different slots.
Shirley says: I use a pegboard for all my skillets and pots with handles. Floor to ceiling about 30 inches wide. So nice easy access.
Donna says:My baking sheets (3) are inside the oven. Other ovenware is in the drawer under the oven.
Michele says: My pots and pans are in a deep bottom drawer in our large island. My cookie sheets were in the drawer of my wall oven but had to move them to under the range cabinet.

We’re going to be working on our Pantry. The place we keep food…it sure gets messy in there! Do you have a great way that you keep your pantry nicely organized and clutter free? Do you ever throw out expired food? Please share here with me, email me or share with me on Facebook, so I can share your ideas. Pictures are always appreciated, too!
