How many of us suffer from messy kitchens? I am certainly one of them. But whether its due to lack of counter or cabinet space, an overstuffed fridge, or what have you — organization tips and products are always a great help. Get Organized! is a great site FULL of great gadgets to help your household on track. Here are four products I think would be super helpful in my kitchen, and maybe yours, too!
Looks like I won’t be using that plastic-bag-underneath-the-counter trick anytime soon. This “Scrap Trap” even comes with a scraper/brush that stores on the side. AND it holds up to 2 quarts!
Okay, I will admit that I’m one of those people that has their flour and sugar spill all over the cabinet and countertop whenever I go to use it. This dispenser can hold a 5lb bag of sugar or flour and allows you to pour right from the bag without a mess! It also keeps its contents fresh, dry and bug free while helping your cabinet get organized. Too great!
FRIDGE ROLL OUT CADDY
This roll out caddy keeps your food organized and accessible, eliminating the possibility of those “forgotten items” in the back of your fridge. They’re also dishwasher safe!
LID AND SPOON REST
I hate when I’m cooking and I go to take the lid off my pot and its a. way too hot, b. covered in sauce or water, and c. DRIPS EVERYWHERE. This lid/spoon rest eliminates those problems and saves valuable counter space while you’re making dinner.
Don’t be embarrassed. Sometimes we go a little overboard with food shopping and the result is a fridge you don’t want to look at, let alone let other people see it. But one of the things that results from fridge clutter is spoiled food. Do you find yourself often asking “is this still good?” or “when did I buy this?” or “how long does leftover pasta stay good for?” — you are not alone. It’s pretty much the dirty little secret that we all share.
But to help you keep track of your own food, here are a few key items you should be keeping tabs on more than the rest. Feel free to print this and keep it on/near the fridge.
Aren”t wish lists fun? How many times have you joined a website like Amazon.com or a clothing website and they have the “Add to your Wish List” button? It”s almost like retail therapy to go click happy with the Wish List button — spending thousands of imaginary dollars on items you could never afford? (Try it sometime, it works for me!) I feel like kitchen gadgets are always on the “(When I”m RICH) Wish List,” mainly because they”re so expensive. However, it”s always nice to dream!
Are there any Richard Blais fans in the house? I”m a Top Chef fanatic, and Blais is definitely one of my favorite chefs the show has seen — mainly because he has some sick skills when it comes to food. Today, he released his holiday wish list of kitchen gadgets on the Huffington Post, many of which are also on my own list. Here are a few (click on each picture to learn more about an item):
1. iSi Twist and Sparkle Beverage Carbonating System
2. KitchenAid Stand Mixer
3. Le Creuset Cast-Iron Enamel Dutch Oven
4. Arcobaleno Pasta Extruder

Cool kitchen gadgets are THE BEST. And there”s so many out there! If you could have any kitchen gadget you want, what would it be? Big or small, we love to wish!
Heads up everyone! There is only a month until Thanksgiving. That”s it. A month. Not sure about you, but Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. In fact, lately I”ve been finding myself honestly dreaming about turkey dinner and hallucinating the scent of turkey and gravy. A problem? No — I just call it anticipation.
And because November 24th will be here sooner than you realize, now is the time to start figuring out your dinner plans. Who”s house this year? What to bring? Meanwhile, I”ll be listing off the usual dishes present at my favorite feast of the year:
