The Great Baking Closet Clean Out

Toni and I have teamed up with a handful of other bloggers to bring you The Great Baking Closet Clean Out!

JC’s Baking Closet Clean Out!

 

TGBBCO-Before-1

I live in military housing here in Germany, so I didn’t get to choose the space that my baking supplies would live in.  I just had to deal with what I was given and improvise.  The main bulk of my supplies are actually kept in our front closet.  Half the closet has hanging coats and the other side shelving… this ended up being the perfect spot to store all my supplies. You can see in the photo above on the right that I’ve got a lot of storage bins already separating out my supplies… but over the last year or so, it’s gotten a little crowded.  Not everything had been put back in it’s bin, some things didn’t even have a bin and it just needed tidying up.

I recently acquired additional storage (as seen in the first photo on the left), but it had turned into a “catch-all” for baking chips/chocolate/candy, props and my Sistema storage containers.  I even had a cute piece of wall art that hadn’t been hung in the 8 months I’ve owned it.

TGBCCO-After-1

To tidy up my closet, I picked up a couple extra storage bins to hold my gel food coloring, the extra cookie cutters and all my new macaroon making supplies.  I took some of the baking pans out to make room for the new bins.  Now, everything has a home and it all fits nicely inside the cabinet! I used these Sterilite bins… I like them because they’re see-though and their lids have a latch!

I think my most favorite part about this entire process was being able to hang my cupcake & coffee picture and have a place to display my CakeSpy art and baking cookbooks!  My extra storage cabinet has been transformed into a cute little area for my styling/photography props and a home for my pretties!

The two pieces of art are CakeSpy originals.  One is of a cupcake falling in love with a cup a to-go coffee and the other are cupcakes drinking wine and martini’s outside of a bar.  LOVE both of these mini pieces of art from my friend Jessie at CakeSpy!

It feels really great to have a space that it not only cute… but completely functional and organized!

    Your closet looks great Betsy! Mine is definitely still exploded in moving boxes here there and everywhere. This was so fun and such a great idea. Thanks a million for including me!

    Wow that looks great! I got the cloth bins and put all my things in those so they would fit in the closet. I too have no room and tend to have things on counters and tables instead

    Lots of clear bins so I can see everything I have!

    Right now mine are kind of contained to the cabinet next to the stove. Most of my appliances are all over the place though. That’s what I don’t have enough space to store.

      I have stuff in every room! In my craft room I have a large book shelf for props, scrapbook paper and supplies. My craft room is packed full!! And I store a lot of stuff in large jars like paper straws and cupcake liners. :)

    I don’t have a great way of organizing. I have some Tupperware for a few of my things, but most of my stuff is just stacked in best I can….I could really use some help in that department!!!

  7. Becca @ Crumbs and Chaos

    I have a few baskets in my pantry that are in serious need of attention – you may have just inspired me to get on it :)

    I wouldn’t call it organizing…more like careful stacking.

      Bryn, this totally made me giggle. That’s what my cabinets were before I got storage bins… carefully stacked!

    I have to start better organizing my pans, bowls, and cookie sheets. It is nearly impossible to get to the one thing I need without them all falling.

  10. Vicki

    I wish I had more storage room so I could organize. I have one little cabinet and I just try to arrange and stack up my stuff so that all my baking stuff is together and not scattered around.

    Reply

  11. Barbara Bradford

    I by no means am completely organized, but my favorite part of my pantry is my heavy dish separators where I store all my Nordic pans, mini Bundt pans and silicone vertical. I don’t have to dig through piles to see what I have.

    My husband is nuts about all my baking stuff. I wish I had more storage space to be able to organize my supplies better.

    Right now my biggest organizational problem in the kitchen is my extra dishes! I need a better system for those!

  15. Sarah A.

    Right now, I’m using the “carefully stack and pray for no avalanche” method of organizing in my kitchen. Too few cabinets, too much stuff!

  16. Beth @ Hungry Happenings

    I have lots of big rectangle Rubbermaid containers that hold my ingredients, supplies, and tools. I love them and wish I had some more.

    Thanks for hosting and including me, Betsy.

    I like to group things together in clear containers. Cupcake liners are a special challenge–keeping them accessible but clean and organized until I use them.

    Reply

  29. Charlene

    I started out with everything in a pile, or in my travel kit. Eventually I purchased a bunch of modular drawers. The latest addition was building shelves, which were built to fit my drawers (the drawers were starting to lean forward because of how tall the stack had become). The shelves also enabled more storage space and the not much used items were packed into a bin and placed in the shed out side.

  30. Lauren

    I don’t have an organization method (I know, horrible). I typically try to keep pans and pie plates together, but other than that it is kind of a free for all.

    Reply

    I envy you your organization.

    Came over here from Hungry Happenings. All of you guys are making me feel guilty for my messy, disorganized, teeny, tiny kitchen.

    I’m fortunate to have a lovely walk in pantry so my baking supplies are fairly organized on shelves and in drawers although I could use a better system for cookie cutters.

    Reply

  33. Krystal

    I use drawers and plastic bins to keep “organized.” I try to keep commonly used things in the drawers and seasonal items in the bins.

    Reply

  34. Julie B

    All I can say is, “as best I can.” I have a tiny apartment kitchen so I just have to put things wherever they fit. I do have a definite place for everything, though, so I can find things when I need them. I have a fairly big tool box which holds *most* of my cake decorating supplies.

  35. Teri

    I use the clear bins also. Aren’t they perfect? I love the latching lids. I also use mugs to keep my food marker pens and paintbrushes in order.

  36. Becca M

    I share my pantry with my sister who keeps stocked up on gluten free food for the foreseeable future, so most of my baking supplies are stuffed into two kitchen cupboards….things falling on my head are a regular occurrence.

    I have them in baskets from the dollar store

    After seeing all of these organized spaces today I already started the organization of all my decorating supplies by cleaning out the junk I don’t need, three big garbage bags worth! Now I just need to buy some containers. Thanks for the inspiration. I also have a Cake Spy original…of me and my five grandchildren (though now #9 is on the way)baking cookies:)

    Yeah, “organize” isn’t exactly the right word! The flours are all together, but everything else is stuffed where I can make it fit!

    I have a some of my baking stuff in cabinets in the kitchen, on a shelf in a closet and a 2 door pantry. I try and keep it all nice and neat by using some of the cookie carrier boxes as storage boxes, since I have so many and they are see thru.

    I have a great pantry in my kitchen in addition to a decent amount of cabinet space. I keep most of my baking items in the pantry and I have a long, narrow cabinet where I store my pans.

    I am actually about to move to a new house, and I will have to figure out how to organize everything from scratch!! Luckily the new kitchen is a lot bigger, so I am hoping to take advantage of lots more cabinet space.

    I absolutely love organization ! It helps make life so much easier ! I would have to say my most favorite things I use to organize are tupperware bins .. in every size from small to huge ! I am also a big fan of shelves , cloth bins, wicker bins, see through jars … really anything I can find ! There is always room for organization improvement , I think we all get organized and then somehow over time .. we tend to get unorganized or start adding more to our collections and have to start all over. Its always fun to get to do the spring clean and organization … it helps us get that new feeling again, a change , an improvement and it is very rewarding !

    I have a few plastic bins for my decorations, cupcake liners, and colorings. My cookie cutter collection is in large plastic jars loosely organized by type. The rest of my equipment is spread all over the cabinets in my kitchen because it often does double duty for more than baking sweets.
