I love looking at how people store things - especially in their kitchens. I like learning other people’s reasoning for things, I like snooping, and I always like to improve on my own spaces. So, I filmed one of my own kitchen! However, mine isn’t perfect. This whole kitchen was a stopgap solution until we could renovate the space (coming soon!) so there’s no fancy pull out drawers, no custom spice racks, no perfectly sized shelves, and certainly no perfect layout.
I feel like there are definitely techniques I use that I think others can learn from, but I also know there’s much to improve. Part of why I filmed this video is because I know that when we renovate and the kitchen has a more functional layout, I’ll be able to look back at this and think, “I did what with my spatulas?!”
Without further ado, here’s a narrated tour of my kitchen cabinets, then below I’ve linked to every item I have in my kitchen - in case you want the same thing yourself.

Speaking of videos will you pretty please subscribe to my YouTube channel? It would really help me out with reaching more followers.
If you’re curious about the improvements made to the kitchen and how far it’s come since we first bought it, click the link below. Blog posts include covering the existing counters with concrete, swapping out hardware and painting, installing a buffalo check floor, and adding additional storage. You can also check out how I deep clean my kitchen here.
Shop the Kitchen:
The most sustainable option is to always buy second hand from thrift stores, local Buy Nothing Groups, or even eBay for small appliances. So please consider those options when shopping for new kitchen gear. If not, I’ve linked to new items.

Wow. Watching that video back and typing out everything I own makes me want to seriously downsize. I can already tell what won’t be making it’s way back into my newly renovated kitchen when the time comes.
