Magnetic Spices at Hand
Take redone baby food jars and turn them into magnetic spice jars that easily attach to the side of the refrigerator. They’re a great way to keep clutter out of your cupboards! I love this! If you have little ones tell them to STAY AWAY!
A Clearly Neat Menu Organizer
No more stacks of menus stuffed in a junk drawer or hanging on the side of the refrigerator! It’s possible to keep these tidy and organized (along with coupons and new recipes to try). Simply adhere any clear folder or plastic sleeve for paper documents to the inside of a cabinet or pantry door.
Magazine Rack for Pot Lids
Just screw a metal magazine rack into the back of a cabinet door and arrange lids by size. The sleek design not only makes it easy to find the right lid but also opens up some additional cabinet space, too.
Loaf Pan for Small Cooking Items
Soup-er Recycled Storage
Take an old cardboard soda box, coat it in Modge Podge, and cover it with decorative paper. Cut an opening in the back to restock cans so the older ones rotate to the front. GENIUS!
Hang Your Cups
To make, turn a coat rack on its side, or screw individual hooks into the wall, and assign each little one their own personal hook based on their height. What’s even better: They won’t reach for a new cup each time they get a drink.
An Elevated Soap Dish
Take dish and hand soaps to new heights by placing them all on a cake stand next to the sink. If you don’t have an old stand you’re willing to part from your pastries, try creating one by gluing a plate atop a wide-based candlestick. It adds an elegant touch to the sink area, while freeing up counter space.
Goodbye, Junk Drawer
A tray placed in a junk drawer can separate odds and ends in a snap — and keep them in place. Or, slide one onto a cupboard shelf to organize teeny baking supplies, like food coloring, toothpicks and sprinkles.
Rustic Wine Glass Holder
Simply remove the handle from any metal rake, and then anchor the head directly to the wall with screws. Flip each glass upside down and slide the stem between two prongs. Or, instead, use the rake to hang spatulas, wooden spoons or other kitchen utensils.
Shoe Organizer for Utensils
Free some space from countertops or cabinets with this sleek idea: Take an over-the-door shoe organizer from any home goods store and hang it on the pantry door or any other door in the kitchen. (The versions with clear plastic pockets are best, so contents are easily visible.) Then slip wooden spoons, spatulas, small appliances or snacks into the slots.
A Retro Spin on Place Settings
This idea from will instantly jazz up a birthday party or a fun dinner at home. Just take an assortment of old vinyl records (you can pick up a variety for a dime at a flea market) and set them as place mats or chargers for serving dishes. Or as an alternative, use the album jackets instead.
