The Best Pot Lid Organizer!


Cabinets are so hard to keep organized. I’m always looking for great organization ideas. While looking around on the internet I saw people using the unused space between the cabinet door and their shelves for lids, and I thought, "what a great organization solution! I've got to try this."

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

All you need are some command hooks. It's really simple, and you can basically buy them anywhere. I got mine from the Dollar Store!

Here’s my messy cabinet. See how unorganized it is?

Step 2: Prepare Your Sticky Hooks

I peeled the front paper off of the sticker and attached it to the hook, following the package’s instructions. Then I peeled the back off of it, so it was ready to stick.

Step 3: Use the Lid to Measure

I placed the hooks onto the lid and then placed the lid where I wanted it to go (where it’s handle hits between the shelves) and pressed lightly. This way I didn't have to guess the distance between the hooks, and I knew it would fit.

Step 4: Press Firmly and Wait

I pressed the hooks firmly to the cabinet door (without the lids, of course). Then I waited 30 minutes before using them, as per the instructions on the package.

Step 5: Hang your Lid

Lastly, I just slipped my lid into it’s custom holder. Ta Da!

The great thing about command hooks is I can change the locations whenever I want, because they're so easily movable. I think I'm going to do this for all my pots and pans.

    Don’t the lids block the cabinet from closing all the way?

    Has this held up? I've had really bad luck with command hooks failing. Maybe it works better on a totally smooth surface? Maybe it's just me...
