How to Hack Your Way to a More Organized Kitchen (Without Spending Your Entire Paycheck)

Let’s face it: we all spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Whether it’s cooking, cleaning, or hosting, it’s important that our kitchen is a space were we feel comfortable.

Many of us don’t have the luxury of a spacious kitchen, which is why DIY storage hacks are key. If you’re looking for creative ways to save space that won’t break the bank, here are six ideas:


1. Mount a dish drying rack to the wall

A dish drying rack will help free up counter space. All you need is a rod, two wire baskets, hooks, and a cutlery holder. Also, don’t forget to put a small mat or towel underneath for any dripping.


2. Use a clear desk organizer in your fridge

When it comes to creative ways to save space in your fridge, one option is a clear desk organizer. This will not only help keep your food organized and easy to locate, but it’s also a great storage solution.


3. Hang cleaning supplies on a tension rod under your sink

This means easy access to your ThreeMain products! Hanging your cleaning supplies on a tension rod allows you to store more household items underneath.


4. Create a compartmentalized recycling drawer

Having a recycling bin in a pull-out drawer is a great way to clear the clutter in your kitchen. Rather than having several bins for glass, metal paper and plastic, use one large bin and separate it into four designated sections.


5. Put a pegboard on the wall

The beauty of a pegboard is you can hang almost anything on it, ranging from cooking utensils, pots and pans, to grocery lists.


6. Hang fruit baskets

Rather than having fruit bowls scattered on the counter, why not create more room with floating fruit baskets? Depending on the design you prefer, you can hang several baskets or create one- tiered basket.
