2. Enlist the insides of your cabinets.
Even if you only have one or two little cabinets, you can still stick a corkboard or a magnetic board in there. From Better Homes and Gardens.
3. They can also store your measuring cups.
Learn how to make this happen on Family Handyman.
4. Keep ‘em organized with a coat of chalkboard paint.
5. Organize by pegboard, à la Julia Child.
Learn how to make one over at Apartment Therapy.
8. Turn your fridge into a spice rack.
Hey, in a small kitchen, everybody’s got to multitask. Learn how to make these cute magnetic spice jars on Dav.i.son.
10. Use every. Single. Bit. Of wall space.
Got a setup like this one? Get some shelves in there.
11. Utilize the sides of your cabinets.
With a little help from Ikea, Not Martha creates this functional, modifiable storage system on the end of one her cabinets.
13. Hang pots and pans from the ceiling.
Yeah, these are usually reserved for expensive, fancy-ass kitchens, but if you’ve got the space above your head, why not use it for storage? This version from Bed, Bath, and Beyond is downsized for small spaces.
14. Line the area right underneath the ceiling with shelves.
15. Fill awkward corner cabinets with pots and pans, using hooks or lazy susans.
This can work for organizing other, non-corner cabinets too.
16. Use an over-the-sink cutting board to temporarily expand your counter space.
Using your sink as a temporary chopping surface frees the rest of your counters for other cooking steps. Crate and Barrel has one for $29.95. This bamboo one “catches veggies as you slice,” $33.31 on Amazon.
17. Make all that under-the-sink space work for you with the help of Command hooks and a little basket.
For those little things that have nowhere else to live. Via I Heart Organizing.
18. Command strips are basically the easiest and best route for attaching storage to the inside of your cabinets.
Like in this cool magazine rack mod from Inspired Life.
19. The insides of cabinets are also great places to put hooks for rags, gloves, and pot holders.
20. Keep dog or cat food in a cereal container.
It’s easier to pour, less bulky than the bags, and keeps it fresher longer.
21. Use a small curtain rod to store lids for easy access.
Store them with help from Instructables.
24. If you have the space, a kitchen cart can serve multiple purposes.
It can serve as an extra counter, an extended storage area, or a temporary bar for entertaining. This one’s on Mary Made This. (There’s a summary in English at the bottom).
25. Even a narrow rolling cart can serve as extra storage.
Stick it in a small, narrow space that wouldn’t serve any use anyway.
