Is your kitchen in need of an organizational overhaul? Good news: You can totally make that happen, even on a tight budget. And (bonus!) you get to indulge in your desire to buy literally everything you see at Target in the processjust, you know, with a plan this time. You do not need expensive organizers to make it work; a bunch of smaller, thrifty items can be just as handy to get your kitchen in order.

To prove it, here's what you can buy at Target with an imaginary budget of $100 to help you get the most reorganizing magic for your money. Let the hypothetical shopping trip begin!
