The use of shelves in base cabinets is poor ergonomics: It makes it very difficult to find items as it is impossible to gain an overview of the entire cabinet contents. It is quite common for a kitchen user to have to bend and stretch when searching for something. Equally they frequently have to remove the contents at the front in order to get to the items at the back.
Once things are fresh and covered, dig into your kitchen drawers. This is often one of the most disorganized parts of a kitchen because people think nobody looks in their drawers other than those using them. However, even if this is true, using disorganized drawers adds to stress and frustration when cooking. Everyone knows how annoying it is to reach into a drawer while cooking three of four items on the stove, only to see a giant mess and no whisk, spatula or stirring spoon. Use drawer organizers to divide items into categories and if you feel like there are no organizers that suit your needs, make your own.
Any kitchen organizing solution begins with uncluttering. Take everything out of the drawer. Sort items into one of 3 piles based on how regularly you use the item. Sorting by your/family usage is easier and helps weed out under utilized or infrequently used kitchen items. For each item place it in one of three piles; regularly used pile; less often used pile or, almost/never used pile. This way you are getting rid of kitchen declutter. The almost never used pile of items is the pile for charity or to throw out. The exception are those items, like a turkey baster for instance, used for annual events like holidays. Try and keep these items to a minimum or better yet store them away with the other same seasonal items. For instance, the nut cracker you pull out every December, keep it with your other items you store for this time of year. For the less often used pile look to dispose of duplicates, worn out, novelty items no longer used. Keep the regularly used items. A general rule of thumb is 25% of the stuff we currently have, we can live without. See if you are living by this rule.
