Designate a Baking Center, Food Prep center, Canning center, Cooking center, and Small Appliance area.
Store as much as possible behind doors and in drawers to keep your kitchen looking neat. I have a small crock for daily used utensils and a blue canning jar for a few others. ( I have the crock by the wood cookstove that I use in cold weather and the jar of utensils next to my electric stove, so i actually have 2 'kitchen' type areas to keep organized depending on what season it is.)
Make use of rubbermaid stand-alone shelving that fits inside of cabinets and on shelves to add more storage space. A corner metal shelf rack inside a cabinet holds my various sized dinner plates without actually stacking them on top of each other.
I have a magnetic set of hooks on the side of fridge for hanging my wisks and a set of hooks on the wall for my potholders and oven mits.
We are awaiting our kitchen remodeling and have our cabinets bought ($650 at habitat for Humanity Restore...complete kitchen and bath cabinets!) and 2 countertops bought and stored. I have picked out flooring, but will wait to buy yet.I have a newer dishwasher ($75 at Restore) in storage too. Brand new cabinets are so overpriced. Our bath need to be finished this winter before we can start on the kitchen. And that comes after the new furnace and water heater gets finished (that dh is working on currently.) BTW our appliances were bought at the Restore ($50 self cleaning high-end stove) and Menards ($650 for our dream 25 cu ft fridge with the water and ice on the door) You CAN do a remodel on the cheap if you work at it and aren't impatient.
