The inevitability of running out of space. In an ideal world, we’d only have need for a finite number of appliances, cookware and utensils, and items. And whenever we need to replace stuff that’s defective or has been exhausted, we place the replacement where the old stuff used to be at. Except, reality isn’t as Elysian as described in the preceding paragraph.

At some point, you’re going to run out of space. You may already have, are close to it, or just dread the thought of it. Regardless of the stage you’re at, you can always use clever and unique organization ideas to postpone the D-day.

12.Magnetic Spice Organizer

You might be able to get away with having a muddled up collection of spice bottle and bags for some time. But after a while that gets long in the tooth and a little organization becomes necessary. There are no shortages of spice organization ideas, but this has to be one of the most uniquely creative ones.

For the most part because it is dead simple to set up. Granted, you’d need one side of your refrigerator to be clear and accessible. But once you have that, all that’s left on your materials list are small square metal containers, magnetic tape, and a pen (to label each tin). That’s it.

Simply slap magnetic tape to the underside of each tin (some spices are heavier than others are, so make certain you use more tape for tins with heavier spices), and arrange them on your refrigerator as you deem fit. This guide walks you through the process with a tad more detail.

11.Organizing a Pots & Pans Drawer with Dividers
Organizing a Pots and Pans Drawer with Dividers simphome com

If you store your pans and pots in a drawer, you know how hard near impossible it can be to arrange them neatly. You’ve probably thought about using a different type of storage for them to save your sanity. Well, hold that thought! This DIY is the easy fix you’ve been frantically searching for, and it would make organizing your drawer a cinch. It primarily requires four strips of molding and panels that’d serve as the dividers.

Here’s the complete rundown of the project—which in summary is giving the inside of the drawer a new coat of paint, gluing two strips of molding each to the top and bottom of the front and back ends of the drawer (four in total), and sliding the painted panels between the molding strips. Easy!

10.Kitchen Shelf for Spices and Kitchenware

The core of this project is a pallet. In the original guide, an abandoned pallet found on the street was re-purposed. It’d need a touch up (hitting the nails in, sanding, and light painting). But once that is done, you can go to town on how best to transform it into a kitchen organizer.

You could follow the guide to the letter, with the use of ledges (for storing spice jars), magnetic knife holders, hooks, and a metal flowerpot (for pens and scissors). But that isn’t set in stone, and you could be creative as well with the materials you use.

9.Use Glue Dots Mounting Tape to Add an Extra Shelf in Your Upper Cabinets

8.Can Dispenser
Can dispenser simphom comSpices aren’t the only food items that could use organization in a kitchen. Canned foods are next on line. They come in different types and have different brands, and sure enough, you’d want them to be easily accessible. That’s where this DIY comes in.

7.Canned Food Organizer
canned food organizer simphome comThe can dispenser DIY above is basic and gets the job done. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But this organizer solution is much more. It is more durable, as it is made of wood.

The implication is that it gets you to use older cans before newer ones. Which doesn’t occur as seamlessly with the alternative solution above. It is a simple project really, and this guide shares everything you’d need and the steps to follow.

6.Produce Storage Cart
