Not everyone is lucky enough to get a Fixer Upper home makeover from Chip and Joanna Gaines, but what everyone can do is steal a few tips from the experts themselves. If anyone knows how to create an organized kitchen, it's Joanna Gaines, and she often shares behind-the-scenes snaps of her home life and HGTV projects with her millions of fans on Instagram. Plus, Joanna is soon to be a mom of five children, so she knows a thing or two about keeping clutter in check! With the following organization ideas in mind, you can create a clean and inspiring kitchen space that's both Gaines family- and Marie Kondo-approved.


Use a chalkboard to organize your dinner plans for the week.


Add shelves above your counter to have dishware that you use often readily available.


"Spank" your kitchen, aka declutter your pantry, cabinets, and fridge on the regular.


Get a cookbook stand to reference the recipe hands-free and stay organized while cooking.


Get individual potted herbs if you don't have the space for a garden.


And if you have the kitchen space, create a whole wall of them — they double as decor and ingredients.


Keep your favorite kitchen tools on display with door-free cabinets.


Plan your dinner around what produce you need to use up.


Remember that it's OK to make a total mess of your kitchen on the weekends.
