1. Conceal Cords On The Backs Of Appliances
We all have that thing we can’t stand seeing in our kitchen. For some, it’s a dish-cluttered sink. For others, it’s a tangled ball of cords. If you’re the latter, you’ll love this insanely easy appliance cord hack. All you need is a few cord organizers with a hook and double-sided tape. Stick them to the back of your appliances (i.e., coffee makers, air fryers, toasters, blenders—the sky is the limit) and wrap the wires when you’re done for a totally cord-free countertop.
2. Try An Adjustable Under-sink Shelf
This hack involves a two-tiered, expandable cabinet shelf with eight adjustable slats. After you place your cleaning sprays, dishwasher pods, trash bags or rubber gloves on the shelves, you can maneuver the slats around for maximum storage, regardless of how your pipes are configured.
3. Create Hanging Cleaning Supply Baskets
Of course, once we decided to revamp our under-sink-storage, we couldn’t stop with the adjustable shelf. This hack is for all of those “extras” that are either too small for a sliding shelf or too awkwardly shaped. Add a bottle hanger on the back of one door for the larger items and a few caddies on the other door for small, quick-grab supplies. You’ll never have to use your flashlight to search for hidden sponges or pods again.
4. Rock An Angled Cutlery Tray
It seems like we’re always unloading the dishwasher and struggling to squeeze all of our forks, knives and spoons into a tiny tray. Hence, why we love this space-saving hack. While the tray only holds 24 pieces of cutlery, its 4-inch width allows you to add a few for your forks, spoons and knives (respectively). Plus, it’s designed to store your utensils at an angle to make everything look neat, organized and easily accessible.
5. Mount Pots, Pans And Cutting Boards On The Side Of Your Island
This hack won’t just clear cabinet space you didn’t know you had, but it will also add a farmhouse vibe to your kitchen that you didn’t know you needed. All you need is a storage bar and some hooks to hang your cutting boards, pots or pans from the side of your island. After all, we didn’t invest in a sage Our Place Always pan so it could sit in storage.
6. Divide Your Berry Bins
There’s a special kind of satisfaction that comes from an organized fridge. And oh, how we love this berry bin hack. The waterproof bin is clear, and has a removable inner partition that you can use to separate your berries. Plus, its inner shell comes out of the base and allows you to rinse and drain everything in one fell swoop. While we know this bin has “berry” in the title, we’re using it for everything in our fridge—from grapes to cherry tomatoes.
7. Try An Over-the-sink Drying Rack
While we know we need a drying rack; we hate seeing them take up space on our kitchen countertops. That’s why we’re obsessed with this expandable, minimalist-approved over-the-sink rack, which has a spot for plates, bowls, cups and utensils. Plus, it’s super easy to store after everything has dried.
8. Create A Wrapping Dispenser
We don’t know why, but there’s something about tearing cling wrap that makes us irrationally angry. If you feel the same way, you need to hop on this double-sided holder for tin foil and cling wrap, which ensures that nothing will tear or slide around as you’re covering your leftovers.
