Every time Mom, Dad, and Uncle or Aunt come over, they seem to want to drop off an extra pot or pan. Over the years, you have collected so many pots and pans sets, your cabinet is full of stuff piled on top of stuff.

Now the question is, what are you going to do with all that stuff? 

Be sure to sort and purge any pots and pans that do not get used or are duplicates.  Keep only the ones you love, use and that are in great shape.

Once you've done that, let's get the remaining keepers organized.

NAPO Michigan would like to share some tips on how to organize the kitchen cabinet that holds your pots and pans.  

Here are three great tips to help you get your pot and pan cabinet under control.

1. Separate pans from lids

Storing lids separately from the pots and pans can provide additional space.

2.   Insert Storage Bars on Cabinet Door

If you attach some thin towel bars onto the inside of the cabinet door, you can store your lids there.   Storing lids on the cabinet door can provide more room to place large amounts of pots and pans inside the cabinet.  Make sure your cabinet door is sturdy enough to drill into.  As an alternative, you can also buy lid racks that hang over the door for you non-DIYer’s and renters out there.

3.   Put Items in a Rack

Putting a rack or divider into the cabinet can help sort the larger pots or pans from the smaller pots or pans. That way when you go into the cabinet, you can easily view and access the pot or pan you need. 

Organizing your kitchen cabinet is easier than you think!  For more organizing tips, visit
