Many of you know that we’ve recently moved to an awesome new house. Well, new to us, considering this beauty was built in 1930:
The sellers did an amazing job updating all three floors on the inside – I couldn’t be happier with what a great job they did. The kitchen is big and open, it could certainly stand a few more cupboards and drawers, but I’m certainly not complaining:
Organizing this kitchen is a bit of a challenge, only because of the lesser amount of cupboard space than I’ve had in past houses. But YouCopia sure does help with that organization! I received the Lid Holder, the Drawer StoraStack, and the Store More Bakeware Rack.
The very first shipment (literally!) to arrive at our new house:
Perfect timing since usually the kitchen is my first room to get set up. Have to make sure I have everything I need to feed my family, right? So these should come in handy:
I wasn’t able to fit the bakeware rack in my skinny cupboard where my bakeware’s new home is, because of it being a ‘skinny’ cupboard, so I’m going to use it on the end of the counter to house my cutting boards. I may need an intervention, as I have a rather abundant collection of cutting boards!
With the limited amount of cupboards to house all my pots and pans (frankly, I apparently need an intervention for all kitchen items, since I have multiple sets of cookware, too!) I wasn’t able to utilize the lid holder (yet), but since I’m planning to add some cupboards and an island, I will have a chance to use it at that time. I’m looking forward to it!
I did start to set up the Food Container Organizer:
And for now, it’s working like a charm holding my food containers in an organized manner. I still haven’t unpacked all my containers, so that will no doubt need to be relocated once I add more cupboard space and unpack the rest of the boxes. Baby steps!
I have other YouCopia items that I’m still using (and loving) and I am very happy with how versatile they are, as well as the quality, which gives me confidence they’re going to last a very long time.
If you don’t know who YouCopia is, let me fill in the blanks for you:
YouCopia was founded in 2006 by father-daughter duo Mark and Lauren Greenwood. A product designer with 30+ years experience, Mark developed the SpiceStack, an award-winning spice rack concept that smartly organizes store-bought spices in the kitchen cabinet. (I have the Chef’s Edition SpiceStack and absolutely love it!)
With more than 1 million sold, the success of the SpiceStack led to many more innovative ideas for the kitchen. Today, YouCopia offers busy home cooks solutions for organizing spices, coffee, tea, oil and vinegar bottles, silverware, food storage containers, pot lids, bakeware, cutting boards and more.
Their products are affordable, functional, easy-to-use, space-efficient and most important, unique to the market. They want to help people experience organization so they can live with less stress and more happiness. Working for me!
YouCopia products are good, solid organizational products. They’re priced at a reasonable level for this type of item, and they also offer a number of other products to help organize your kitchen including the Shelfriser, SpiceSteps, the TeaStand and the WrapStand, which which are organizers I need to pick up next.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to organize your kitchen, YouCopia is a good choice. They are easily found at Target, Amazon, and at major home retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond.
