Baking Cupboard Organization

What’s behind closed doors is not always pretty and functional – but it sure can be!

I hope you’ll be inspired by my new baking cupboard organization, enjoy hearing about my process and take advantage of my free “Baking Cupboard Essentials” printable checklist.


GATHER & FOCUS The first thing I did was gather all the containers I currently had and wrapped my head around what exactly I wanted the purpose of this space to be.

A baking cupboard could hold lots of things, but since I only had this small space, I wanted to designate it just for dry goods and find a separate home for oils, extracts, fats, etc.


EMPTY & CLEAN After you’ve gathered all the containers or bins you have and want to use, it’s time to empty that cupboard or space completely.


That’s right, pull it all out and enjoy all the surprises tucked away that you forgot you had. While the cupboard was empty, I also took the opportunity to scrub the shelves until they were shiny clean.


GROUP Once all the items are out for you to see, it’s time to group like items. This helps you wrap your head around what you had in there, and what you will need to find organized space for.


PLAN At this point, with all the junk all over the countertops and spread out everywhere, it is easy to get discouraged and overwhelmed. This is why planning is so important.

Get out a paper, and jot down all the things that you want to go back in the cupboard or space.  Try to envision your end goal or even sketch it out! This will really help you keep focused.
