These kitchen hacks offer practical and budget-friendly solutions to common kitchen storage challenges. By implementing these ideas, you'll be able to declutter your cabinets and improve accessibility to your essential items.
1. How to Make a Lazy Susan
Tired of digging through crowded cabinets when cooking? By using two cake pans from the Dollar store and a bag of marbles, you can create a functional and accessible spice storage solution that is perfect for storing all different types of condiments and seasonings.
Pour the bag of marbles into the larger cake pan.
Place the smaller cake pan on top of the marbles and you now have your very own DIY turntable.
This clever kitchen cabinet organizer idea is so easy to make. With a simple spin, your favorite spices will be at your fingertips, inspiring you to create delicious meals with ease.
2. Efficient Under-Sink Storage Systems for Garbage Bags
Transforming the messy and disorganized space under your kitchen sink doesn't have to be a daunting task. With this smart kitchen cabinet hack, you can create an efficient storage system specifically designed for your garbage bags.
Grab a plastic curtain rod and your trusty garbage bags. Start by marking your desired length on the bag to ensure it fits neatly under the sink.
Carefully cut the rod at the mark.
Reattach the end piece to the plastic rod to reseal it.
Install brackets on the inside of your cupboard and install your roll of garbage bags.
No more struggling with tangled bags or cluttered cabinets, this under-sink organization idea lets you enjoy a clutter-free cabinet by providing easy access to your garbage bags.
3. Stylish knife display and storage solutions
Next, let's talk about knife storage. I have two space-saving knife storage techniques that combine style and practicality.
DIY Magnetic Knife Holder
To create your own space-saving knife storage masterpiece, you'll need a strip of wood and some magnets.
Start by using a Forstner bit to create holes in the wood strip, deep enough so the magnets fit flush with the wood strip.
Apply wood glue to the strip and firmly press another strip on top.
Use clamps to hold the pieces together while the glue sets and dries.
Once dry, you're ready to mount the strip on the wall, effortlessly displaying your knives in a sleek and stylish manner.

- Bamboo skewers
Creative DIY Knife Holder
Say goodbye to dull knife blades caused by traditional knife blocks. I have an exciting kitchen storage hack that will revolutionize the way you store your knives.
Start by cutting 4 equally sized rectangular pieces of wood.
Use glue and a few brad nails to hold the pieces together to create a box.
Cut a bottom piece that fits snugly and allow the glue to dry for a couple of hours.
Once the glue has set, it's time to add legs and sand down the surfaces for a polished finish.
But we're not done yet! The magic lies in the next step. Grab some skewers from your local Dollar store and cut them to the appropriate size. Insert the skewers into the box, ensuring they are evenly spaced.
Set your beloved blades inside, marveling at how perfectly they are held in place.
This unique knife storage alternative not only keeps your knives organized but also protects their sharp edges. By eliminating the risk of scraping against wood, your blades stay pristine and ready for action whenever you need them.
4. Simple Snack Organization Idea
When it's snack time, stop rummaging through bins for treats.
Install a shoe hanger on the back of your pantry door or cabinet using simple hooks.
The shoe hanger provides easy and accessible snack storage keeping everything organized and within easy reach.
