The Best Pot Lid Organizer!

1 Material

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.

    I don't see how you can close the door. The kids are going to bang into the shelves.

    I like the idea but I have had bad experiences with the hooks purchased at the dollar store. I think I will try it but using brand hooks only. Thanks, it's a great
