Make use of the inside of your cupboards

Utilize every space in your kitchen, by making use of the inside of your cupboards. Make sure though that any new storage doesn’t protrude too far inside and stops the door closing properly!

Pegboard Perfection!

A pegboard doesn’t just have to be for the garage and hanging power tools. Install one onto an empty wall, paint it a nice color to match the decor and then hang your most commonly used items from it.

Turn your fridge into a spice rack

This one is my favorite. All you need to do is glue some small magnets to the lid of a small spice jar, write the name of the spice onto the bottom of the jar (so you know what it is), then stick it to your fridge. It looks fun and is highly useful!

What a waste the sides of your cupboards really are! Get some racks and hooks from your local hardware store, attach to the side of a cupboard not in use and then hang your cooking tools from it.

Place your most used plates & bowls on the counter top

I kicked myself for thinking about this one sooner! Basically, we can apply the 20/80 principle here. We all use about 20% of item about 80% of the time, so why not follow this rule and put the most used things easily to hand. I.e. we use plates & bowls a lot, so put them where they are easy to get!
