Organizing my Kitchen with Joseph Joseph

I’m on a purging kick and it has found its way to kitchen. Even though we’ve only been in this house for about 4 years now, it’s like decades of stuff suddenly multiplied inside our kitchen cabinets.

Take this cabinet for example:

Glasses before

The top level has like 40 wine glasses. And they aren’t even nice wine glasses – most of them came free with a tasting at a wine festival or vineyard. Do you know how many adults live in my house? TWO. So WHY do I have so many wine glasses? I’m pretty sure that I don’t even have 40 friends…

I tore through the cabinet and here’s how it looks now.

I feel like my cabinet can take a deep breath now (even though that is kind of a creepy thought). After cleaning out the unneeded stuff, I just kind of sat there and smiled at it for a minute. Then, I went into a purging frenzy. I took only about 15 minutes, but I literally went through all my cabinets and grabbed out anything that wasn’t actually used or needed.

I could have spent a lot longer and actually removed everything and cleaned down the insides of the cabinets… but who has that kind of time when a random MUST PURGE THE KITCHEN mood hits?

I’m pretty sure my kitchen purge was sparked when my Joseph Joseph order showed up at my door:

The nice people at Joseph Joseph sent me a couple of their most awesome products to try out for myself. Not only are they just all together pretty and well-designed, they really help keep the clutter under control!

Here’s a little ‘before’ shot of my storage container cabinet before I attacked it. It’s actually not too bad in this picture, but it has certainly been a lot worse.

I went through and got rid of anything gross looking, anything missing a top and any free promo items I received and never used. I then replaced some of the discarded items with my new Nest 12 Piece Storage set. Each storage container has a colored dot on the bottom that coincides with its lid to make them easy to pair. They also fit inside each other with each lid snapping into place!

I can’t believe how streamlined they are to store away in such a small space. And I kind of love the pretty rainbow of color from the lids!

Joseph Joseph also sent me their Nest 9 Plus which carries over their space saving design with food preparation items. This set contains: a large mixing bowl, colander/strainer, stainless-steel mesh sieve, small mixing bowl with measurements, and 5 measuring cups.

And the best part… look at this:

Yup, they all fit together for easy-peasy storage!

Just take a look at my formerly messy drawer now:

Yeah, I’m pretty much in organizer heaven. I really like the design of my new Joseph Joseph products and I’m hoping that they can help me keep my kitchen nice and organized in 2016!

Do you have a drawer in your kitchen that looks like my ‘before’ picture? What is your best tip for purging unneeded items?


Disclosure: I received the Nest 12 Piece Storage Set and Nest 9 Plus from Joseph Joseph for the purposes of my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

One thought on “Organizing my Kitchen with Joseph Joseph”

  1. I also purge at random times. I will be trotting along just fine in life and then all of a sudden, a “MY HOUSE IS A DISASTER AND I NEED TO GET RID OF EVERYTHING AND LIVE IN A STORAGE CONTAINER” mood hits. Over the holidays, I organized all of our kitchen cabinets except the coffee mug cabinet, which I’ll be doing TODAY because of this post. Thanks… I think 😉 PS. I love your pull-out shelves in your storage cabinet. That is so genius.
