Sure, you can see plenty of pictures of beautiful kitchens that are enormous and neither storage space nor price is any object when it comes to organizing everything that is housed there. For those of us who do have constraints on our budgets and our space, here are some great solutions (using easily available, inexpensive tools) for storing all kinds of things, from food to plastic containers and lids to mugs. Using hooks, whether attached to the outside of cabinets for hanging pots and pans to the inside of pantry doors to make measuring cups and spoons easier to find is a cheap, easy idea. If the side of your refrigerator is exposed, use a magnet to help you store spices or knives. Baskets are also a good solution for extra dish towels or easy-to-grab snacks; just try not to use too much counter space for them or you’ll defeat the purpose! Another great idea is to “add a drawer” if you have shelves that could be better used. Especially when it comes to storing food, whether in the pantry or in the freezer, the most organized kitchens always use labels. Using clear containers helps, too. I like that most of these ideas don’t require a kitchen redesign or a big investment. You can implement as many or as few of these “hacks” as you like and you won’t need to worry about the design not feeling consistent–these are simple, straightforward storage solutions that could work in any kitchen. Good luck!
