Like most people, I have a pretty simple/standard kitchen. However, there is one thing you that when seen, often gets peoples attention. I picked up this gem of an idea somewhere years ago and I will never be without it again.
I have a shoe rack attached to the inside of my pantry door!
Let me tell you for a moment how fantastic this is :)
You can put just about anything in it and use it however you need to!
Here is how I use it...It frees up space on my pantry shelves, helps me to actually be able to see and find random items, keeps open bags from spilling all over & even helps us waste less food. Whenever I get toward the bottom of a box of individually wrapped items, instead of having the entire box with 1 or 2 things in it, the items go in a pocket in the door. Those little packets of seasoning, gravy/soup mix, sugar substitute, etc., they all have a home. Open bags of chocolate chips, brown sugar, rice, etc., they get a twist at the top of the bag, then placed twist side down...no spilling and no spoiling!
This is by far the best use of a few bucks & 2 screws (make sure you're screws are short enough to not go out the front side of the door). If you are looking for a way to get more organization in your kitchen, maybe you should give this a try!
Have another good organizational tip...please share!!
