From The Kitchn - July 17, 2017

The problem with organizing the kitchen is that it's full of stuff, and that stuff tends to be all different sizes and shapes, so there's no magical solution that will work for everything. Challenging! So it's no wonder the internet is full of ingenious hacks to tackle different areas of the kitchen. Here are some the best ideas out there right now.

1. Hang measuring spoons and cups inside your cabinets.

If you are like me, your measuring spoons are all in a jumble in your silverware drawer and the measuring cups are currently being used as noisemakers by the kiddos.

3. Add a tension rod under the sink.

This clever solution, which we have written about before, turns that teeny space into drawers, so you have a few extra inches to store flat, infrequently used items like cookie trays and linens.

5. Use a tray for countertop clutter.

6. DIY a pullout drawer for your baking sheet.

7. Make a hanging utensil rack.

8. Set up drawers diagonally.
