I can’t believe I never thought to put these organizing tools to use in my refrigerator.

I love this idea! Use tension curtain rods to create dividers. Buy rods to fit the space, and position pairs of them at intervals. Great for storing platters, cookie sheets and cutting boards

Use vinyl to place a measurement conversion chart right inside your cabinet door.

I don’t have much cabinet space, so I use a wall mounted pot rack to hang my pots over my stove.

I already use hooks inside my cabinet doors for dish rags to dry, but I love the idea of adding buckets to doors for sponges and tools too!

Make a chalkboard for the kitchen to keep track groceries needed, menus and to-do lists.

Use jars, containers, and baskets to keep pantry items organized.  Use labels to make sure everyone knows what goes where.

Make better use of the space under your sink.  Hang spray bottles from a tension rod for easy access.

    I love the idea of the tension rods and could use them in a hundred ways. Do you know where I could find them? Found you via Stumble upon.

    I just made a chalkboard for my kitchen, I love it!!!

    I saw this on the Rite Aid facebook page. I just love the tension rod for spary bottles idea. This is so awesome!

  5. 64

    I love you! I love these ‘dug why didn’t I think of that’s ideas. My kitchen is going to look faaaaabulous!

    Great idea re using a rod in the under the sink cupboard, ours is a right mess! Wish i was as organized as you!

  7. 66

    I love all your ideas! The use of the tension rods is a fantastic idea. Your panty and kitchen looks so great and everything looks so organized.

  8. 67

    Ooh these are great ideas! I specially liked the idea of the under the sink organization. Thank you for sharing.

  9. 68

    The last one I want to try. What a coincidence, just 2 weeks ago, my kids told me to put a chalkboard on the kitchen so they could put things that they want to eat there. And I find it very convenient too because I can just write down things that are needed at home.

  10. 69

    Wow! Fantastic ideas and it looks so organized.

  11. 70

    Found you on stumble upon. Love the pictures. It’s inspiring me to organize!!

    I love the gray and white pattern inside of the pantry. Did you stencil that on or is it some kind of wall paper? Thanks!

    Really good ideas, thank you. I wouldn’t hang pots over the stove top though, they’ll get dirty fast from whatever is cooking, they could warp from the heat, & if the handles are covered in wood or a polymer, they could split.

      Thanks for stopping by!
      Mine have been hanging there for over 10 years – they don’t get dirty because I use them often and I’ve had no problems with warping or splitting

    I’m pretty sure I’ll be using all of these… I just moved and haven’t the slightest clue how to start organizing my kitchen. I mean sure, I guess the pots should go near the stove… and the silverware should all be in the same drawer, but other than that, I am in serious need of some creative ideas. Glad you posted this!

    the tension rod inside the cabinet under the sink works good if you are using light weight bottles, bit as soon as I put the heavy ones on the whole thing comes crashing down. any suggestions on how to fix this without having to add another tension rod?

  16. 76

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking the time and actual effort to
    make a really good article… but what can I say… I
    procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

    I found this post via StumbleUpon….awesome! You have gained a new follower :) Would love to have you visit me over on West Street Story!

    I love the tension rod especially. Thanks for sharing your ideas with the world!

  20. 80

    great ideas! Never thought about using the rod under the cabinet to use some of that wasted space to hang bottles! I like how you are storing the cutting boards.

    I make alot of cutting boards in my shop

    I like your site, great pictures, and ideas and great information!

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, fantastic blog!

    Most individuals prepare for cost of moving expenses such
    as boxes and tape. However, you have to take the time to do it right and follow the proper steps for this dream to become a reality.
    Using furniture colors such as black or red in a light
    color themed room not only adds a bold feeling to the theme, it also gives it
    a modern look.

    It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this
    article at this web page.

  29. 89

    I read this piece of writing fully about the
    comparison of most up-to-date and previous technologies, it’s amazing
    article.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post
    was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for rookie
    blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  34. 94

    It’s amazing designed for me to have a website, which
    is valuable for my knowledge. thanks admin
