This will help the vertically challenged person, such as I, to utilize those top shelves while being able to reach things. I arrange my cereal and cracker boxes like books on a shelf and I can reach the front edge and get them down. This also helps with those boxes which are too tall to stand upright on the shelf.

I have been reading different ideas here on ThriftyFun, and looking on line for frugal ways to redo my under the kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, my kitchen drawers, my food cabinets and pans, etc. I really made out very well after doing a lot of searching, I found the best pricing and best variety at Walmart.com

I also covered a useless wall in my kitchen where only my phone hung out by putting up a cork board, then mounting my phone back on it. Now I can use it as a message board, pin a recipe on it, as it is on the left side of the working counter where I do all my cooking/baking work. And I like the look.

I am happy with all the new changes. Oh, I also did my closet over with two white two tier racks for shoes.They were so cheap in price! You have to check out "organizing your kitchen/closets".

I live in a small apartment and have limited storage space. I love to bake and have lots of odd size pans and casserole dishes. I purchased several small plastic crates similar to a milk crate. These fit neatly in one lower cabinet. One holds my baking pans and cutting boards standing on end like books on a shelf and the other holds my odd shaped glass dishes in the same manner.

These will not fall over when one is removed because of the limited space between them. I can find them easily and I don't have to climb up to reach a top cabinet.

My cupboards were a hot mess. It's never that I have too much food, but never enough space. I have shelves that fall down (I have one held up with food containers), or they are too high up.

So today, I dug out the recycled food containers I had been collecting and went to town.

Total Time: 2.5 Hours

Link: None

Supplies:

  • food
  • food containers

Steps:

  1. The first thing I did was take all the food out of the cupboards. When that was done, I picked one package or box of stuff and one container.
  2. Doing this made it easier to keep track. I didn't have a ton of things sitting all over the place. The food was on the counter and the containers were on my table.
  3. When things were converted, I had enough containers from thrift stores or from other foods to repackage about 75% of the foods. Those that I didn't, I left in their boxes for now.
  4. I then put the baking goods and the canned fruit and veggies in the other cupboard, separated by a shelf.

  6. In the last cupboard, I made two containers for the packaged goods I get. Ranch dressing, apple cider, gravy mixes, etc. The last one is for larger items like instant spuds, Gnocchi, drink mixes, etc.
  7. For the final conversion, I made a "medicine drawer" of things I need daily. Medicine, honey, spices, etc. NOTE: All the plastic is food grade and is never microwaved. N-JOY!!

Cut down a box lid to custom fit the shelf in your cupboard to place pans or dishes on, grab and slide out for easy reach and storage!

If you are like me and have limited space and keep plastic containers, I found a great solution. Keeping in mind the Nesting Dolls, I found that with a little planning, I can keep smaller ones inside bigger ones, inside even bigger ones!

Conventional storage in many cupboards in the home leaves a lot of wasted space. To maximise this space I have added 'intermediate' shelving.

When I had to open my utensil drawer to put away the pancake turner, I would look around and see what else needed to be put away in that drawer while I had it open.

Upon cleaning out my cupboard this last time, I found that placing everything into plastic ziplock bags or container made everything easier to get to and to organize.

Go to dollar store and buy small plastic baskets to fill with products like oil, vinegar, spices, marsala wine, vanilla extract, etc. and then put them in your cabinets...

The inside of your cabinets can provide some excellent organizational space. Put some hooks at the back of the cabinet or attach a piece of pegboard or cork board in the back and use this space to hang small kitchen utensils, pot holders, and various other small items.
