Organizing Products I Use – Two-Shelf Organizers for Dishes

As I told you in a previous post, I have a weakness for dishes. And I love to entertain. So the combination could be a little scary if it weren’t for sOrganizing Products I Use - Organizers for Dishes @ 1-2-3GetOrganized.com/blogpace-saving organizers! My new favorite is the Grayline 40126, Large Two Shelf Organizer. I bought four of these gems from Amazon and use two in each cabinet. They were about $22 each, a pretty reasonable price for making me smile for years!

I bought these stars and stripes dishes one year after the Fourth of July at half price.  This was the year I was having stars as a Christmas theme, so perfect! (I no  longer have Christmas themes, as I started accumulating too much stuff!)

But I love these dishes – great for the Fourth, Memorial Day, birthdays (stars for the star), and Christmas. I found star glasses at another store and collected some star baskets, a sugar and creamer, napkin rings, and a large star bowl.

In the past, I’ve had to stack these and store them in different locations. I’m so happy that I can keep all my star stuff in one location and be able to find what I need when I need it. I had a little extra room and stored some party plates in the extra space on the left.

My mother-in-law gave me tulip serving dishes one year. I’ve never been able to store them all together until now. The plates are white with embossed tulips – not expensive, but I love them!

So back to the organizers – what I enjoy about these organizers is that they really max out space in cabinets that are high and deep. Things are easy to get to without having to unstack anything. The only thing that would have been better is if both organizers could have fit horizontally against the back wall. But I didn’t find any that worked. Nonetheless, I’m very happy with how they’ve allowed me to store an abundance of dishes in a small space.

If you love dishes like I do, these organizers may make you smile, too!

    We don’t have a bulk store in my town so to save money I buy my spices in bags and refill my spice jars as needed. Of course the bags hold more than the spice jars do so there was always some leftover.
