WFMW: Kitchen Organization

It's time for another WFMW! I haven't participated in a while, but this week's in themed so I thought I'd jump right in.

Until this summer, we have had a TINY kitchen with very limited drawer space. I had to come up with clever ways to keep my measuring cups, measuring spoons and little cooking nick knacks organized. This is what I came up with: Open baskets with a slightly higher back than front.
(They were $4 @ Wal-Mart)

Now that we own a house with a large kitchen, I keep the baskets on my lazy Susan and in my pantry. Whenever I'm baking, I just pull the entire basket out from the lazy Susan, place it on the counter top and I have immediate access to my measuring cups/spoons.

I also love the little white metal shelf the basket is sitting on in my pantry. They are actually in the closet organization area at Target, and they run about $5 each. Check out how much more I can store in my pantry with the shelving:

Pretty pantry! I love baskets too, but I like how yours are higher in the back. Also, that little shelf on the door looks handy too.

I love this idea! I have been throwing all those things in a small cubard and hate how messy it looks. I will be looking for a basket to fit there!

Some great ideas for baskets. I also like the pix. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to do something with my lack of space.

I have those white metal shelves in my closet and they are WONDERFUL. You can't beat $5 at Target when they are so useful.
