We all know how annoying it can be when you have the perfectly sized container to store some leftovers but cannot find the matching lid, or when you reach for something and whole bunch of containers or water bottles tumble out at you. Well, we have put together 5 of the best quickest and inexpensive ways to utilize every bit of your kitchen cabinets as well as keeping your containers and supplies organized and easily accessible.
Water bottles are taking a lot of space. Find a space in your kitchen where you can put a magazine or paper holder standing up. Now all you need to do is stack the water bottles on top of each other, keeping them for all toppling out when reaching for something behind them in the cabinet as well as taking up a whole of unnecessary space.
Under Shelf Space-Saver
Food containers all can take up a lot of valuable storage space, especially the larger ones. This easy hack can give you additional storage space, as well as keeping things neat and tidy, while also making it easy to get what you need. Simple fix an undershelf basket on the bottom of a shelf in your cabinet, which you can then fill with sorted food storage container lids, and place on the shelf underneath the containers under their corresponding lids.
Create your own makeshift pullout cabinets by putting some lightweight trays or some medium-sized boxes in a drawer, so that you can put the food containers sideways, stacked, with their corresponding lids stacked next to them, and all in an organized manner. This helps save space as well as all that fumbling around in the backs of cabinets searching for matching lids for the right container.
You may think that the only use for a wall-mounted file holder is for papers but think again as it can be great for small kitchen organization. Simply hang one on the inside of a cabinet door (making sure it is positioned so that you can still close the cabinet), preferably the cabinet you store all your containers in, and fill it with all the food storage container lids that are usually so hard to find. This guarantees that the lids are always within reach as the smaller ones will never be so hard to find.
Tension Rods for Organization
This is another easy hack that can save so much time and energy, giving you a great kitchen cupboard organizer. Simply take two tension rods, and place them near the top of the kitchen drawer about two of three inches apart, giving you three compartments; one large, one medium, and one small one in the middle. You can keep the food storage containers in the large compartment, the lids in an upright position in the small compartment, and water bottles or tall jars lined up in the medium compartment.
