Looking to declutter your messiest spots? Organize under your kitchen sink in no time with these brilliant tricks!

Check out the video for more how-to's!

I was swamped under the mess of my cleaning supplies, extra garbage bags, and general house-care clutter. No matter how I rearranged it, I couldn't figure out a good way to keep that space clean. After a quick trip to the store, I found a few key items that helped me turn my under the sink cabinet around!

Step 1: Empty Cabinet

I made sure there were no kids or pets around and unloaded the area under my sink. I dug every single thing out

Step 2: Clean

I wiped out that whole area so that I was starting with a clean, blank slate. Make sure to do this step carefully, in case any of your cleaning supplies have spilled or leaked under there.

Step 3: Install Shelf

I picked up this handy shelf. It was super simple to install and it instantly organized my space.

Step 4: Add Tension Rod

Next, I added a tension rod that would hold baskets for my smaller items and supplies.

Step 5: Add Clear Bins

I lined the bottom of my cabinet with clear bins so that locating supplies later would be a cinch.

Step 6: Add a Lazy Susan

I slide a Lazy Susan in front of my clear bins to hold all the bottles and sprays. This will be super helpful in the future for quick grab-n-go cleaning!

Step 7: Add a Magazine Holder

Lastly, I filled a magazine holder with my garbage bags and other boxed supplies, so that they would stay upright and together in one area.

This under the sink revamp has been a huge game-changer for my cleaning routine! I'm loving how quick and easy it is to find what I need.

I hope this inspires you to get organized this year!

      They sell them at Walmart and amazon and homedepot and Lowe’s. They have plastic ones that have a rubber mat on it that is only $9-15

    How didn’t you keep the clear baskets on the tension rod from rolling right side up? Nice organization.

      Position it so the bottom touched the front of the cabinet piece that the doors close on. It can't move forward.

    My problem is that the garbage disposel takes up 1/2 the space.

    I have the same problem. I found a pull out shelf that is adjustable, in width, and has a 2nd shelf (narrower) at the local H.D or Lowe's.. I used the tension curtain rod to have all the spray bottles by the trigger. Not as much as she shows but better than the cluttered mess I had..
