Measuring Cup Organization

Pin It Now!

Anyone who is a self proclaimed pinterest-aholic will probably tell you that they have all seen the pin that shows the inside of a cabinet door sporting a lovely bar with great eye hooks, cute vinyl measuring labels, and pretty colors.  I know I have seen it, and I have pinned it from like 5 different people.  I had to have it.  I own 4 different sets of measuring cups, and that many different sets of measuring spoons.  I can not fit them all in one drawer and still be able to open it.  I use them every day, and I can not stand to be drives me the core of my very being.  I can't control my toddler, but dang it, I can control the clutter in my kitchen drawers!!!!!

---Or maybe not.

Our cabinets were too thin to screw in the lovely piece of wood that held the hooks.  I was so disappointed.  Then one night a few days ago, it came to me in bed....3M HOOKS!!!!  They don't require a drill, they don't require me wasting the husbands time on something fairly trivial in the grand scheme of things, and since I had a ton from Christmas, they didn't require any money to be spent either.  So, yesterday I put on my big girl panties, made my first journey into our attic, and dug through all our Christmas boxes until i found those darn hooks!!  Now, I have organized measuring cups, and a drawer where my non-hang-able baking items can reside, unmolested by the other items.

I have another cabinet that has more measuring cups on these hooks, as well as two sets of measuring spoons.  This was such an easy, inexpensive, and NON-PERMANENT answer to my problems.  The pin on pinterest may look nicer, but for 5 minutes work, this was so worth it.  I could even write the capacity of the measuring cup that should hang on each hook if I was truly anal.  I guess it can go without for at least a day while a stew over the necessity of that :)
