The Best Under-$30 Organizers on Amazon for Every Part of Your Kitchen
It should come as no surprise that an organized kitchen is a happy kitchen. When everything is in its place—and easy to find—cooking, baking, and performing general tasks becomes effortless: You’re no longer rifling through the pantry and sniffing mysterious bags of beans. If you haven’t invested in kitchen organizers, it’s definitely the next step towards total organizational bliss.
The easiest place to start shopping is Amazon, which is home to a slew of organizers for just about every section of the kitchen. To make things as seamless as possible, we've gathered together some of the most popular organizers and divided them into different areas of the kitchen: cabinets, fridge and freezer, pantry, and underneath cabinets. Keep scrolling for 16 top-rated kitchen bins, turntables, and airtight containers that are guaranteed to rein in any mess—all for $30 or less.
For the Cabinets:
- Simple Houseware 2 Tier Sliding Cabinet Basket Drawer, $23 (originally $30)
- YouCopia Storemore Adjustable Pan and Lid Rack, $20
- SimpleHouseware Kitchen Cabinet Pantry Pan and Pot Lid Organizer, $16 (originally $25)
- Copco Non-Skid 2-Tier Cabinet Lazy Susan Turntable $12 (originally $13)
Whether you need to create more space, or simply add a semblance of structure to the cabinets, there's something for everyone here. Prop a few of the Simple Houseware sliding drawers in the cabinets and fill with everything from jars of spices to condiments and coffee pods. If you need to find a place for pots and pans that isn't just under the stove or thrown haphazardly into the back of the pantry, set up the YouCopia adjustable pan and lid rack or the Simple Houseware skillet organizer, both of which are designed to not only save space but also keep everything in place.
"Bye bye messy cabinets," one five-star Amazon shopper says of the SimpleHouseware skillet organizer "No more cluttered cabinets! When I need a skillet, I pull one out in a matter of seconds versus digging through hazardously piled pans that my family carelessly threw back in."
For the Fridge/Freezer:
The fridge and freezer don't merely have to be a chaos zone, with vegetables and cartons of milk haphazardly tossed into any section. Keep things at arm's reach with the mDesign translucent food storage bins, which show you exactly what's in the fridge at any given moment. You can even unpack boxes of eggs and place them in this adorable egg holder designed to store up to 24 eggs. And If you're searching for containers that'll keep produce fresh, look to the Silivo bins, complete with a removable drain tray that prevents fruits and vegetables from becoming limp.
“These are awesome for organizing the fridge,” one five-star shopper shares about the mDesign plastic storage bins. “I buy cups of cinnamon applesauce and diced peaches and once the package is open they are all over the fridge. These hold multiple packages of each all stacked perfectly and ready to just grab and go.”
For the Pantry:
If you're lucky to have a pantry, you know quite well that it's a double-edged sword: Even if you have plenty of space, maintaining organization and being able to find that certain box of pasta can be tricky. Rather than rummaging through the chaos, store dry goods like rice, beans, and pasta in these airtight storage containers, move dried spices into these translucent glass jars, and store snacks or tea bags in this turntable that comes with removable bins.
“These containers are awesome,” one of 7,000 five-star shoppers says of the Vtopmart airtight bins. “I almost spent a lot more buying a name brand set of containers and I’m happy I tried these out first. I will definitely be replacing all of the containers in my pantry with these.”
For Under the Cabinets:
- SimpleHouseware Under Sink 2 Tier Expandable Shelf, $22 (originally $30)
- YouCopia UpSpace Box Organizer, $20
- SimpleTrending Under Cabinet Organizer Shelf, $18
- Madesmart 2-Tier Organizer Slide-Out Baskets with Handles, $23 (originally $25)
One way to create more space is by utilizing the area underneath a cabinet—whether that's dangling a shelf underneath, or by inserting a storage rack in an unconventional spot. Start with the SimpleHouseware expandable shelf that can be propped under the sink. The shelf can expand or contract to suit the space and be arranged with everything from cleaning supplies to sponges and towels. A similar rack from YouCopia can also be positioned under the sink or below pantry cabinets and stocked with plastic bags, aluminum foil, and other long boxes. If you're looking to increase space in already-filled cabinets, consider installing this under-cabinet shelf, which instantly doubles storage.
“Spring cleaning in a snap,” a shopper says of the SimpleTrending Under Cabinet Shelf. “I was tired of a messy cabinet and not enough shelving space. The baskets are a must for getting organized! They fold open and slip in so easily. I will be ordering more for all of my cabinet space.”
