The kitchen is one of the few places in your home that can be really tough to keep in order due to a lot of small items lying around. Not to mention the clutter that is caused by dishwares, spices, groceries, cleaning products, and plastic bags. Here are a few tips and tricks to organize your kitchen the way you’ve always wanted it to be.

● Install tension rods, you will be able to free up all of the room under your cabinet and your spray bottles can be easily placed on the tension rod. You will find what is needed immediately, and you don't have to shuffle everything to get your cleaning products or food out. Putting everything you’ve taken out back again is as easy as pie as well.
● Organize your vegetables in the drawer. Don’t just leave your vegetables rolling around on your countertop You can use baskets or boxes to separate each type of veggie too!
● Paper towel racks aren’t just for paper towels. You can use them to keep your cookie cutters in place. All you have to do is stack them on each other over the paper towel rack. It is another approach where a lot of other applications will probably be considered when you begin using it.
● Label your ingredients and jars with chalkboard paint. Chalkboard markers or paint are absolutely stunning to use throughout the house and is particularly perfect for organizing the kitchen. You can use them to label your ingredient jars and store them upright for an easier way to recognize and use your kitchen edibles and spices.

● Try out a freestanding closet. If you have a tiny closet filling to the brim with clothes, or perhaps you don’t have a closet yet, opt for a freestanding closet. Having it out in the open will make it easier for you to pick out which outfit to wear for the day and it will encourage you to stay organized instead of just throwing your clothes into a mess.

Keeping Up with the Garage and Toolshed

Your garage and toolshed are by far the toughest places to organize within your home. With a wide array of tools, paints, and old items stored in them, decluttering the shed almost seems like an impossible task to take on. These simple and easy storage hacks are sure to lighten up the load when it comes to organizing your home’s storage unit.

● Recycle your tin cans. If there are any old and empty tin cans of paint just lying around in your garage, you can clean it out and use it as a storage material for your tools such as nails, hammer, wrenches or paintbrushes.
● Create a pincushion for your tools. You can do this by taking a piece of foam, gluing it to plywood and mounting it to a wall. This is ideal for pinning in your drill bits, screwdrivers and wrenches.
● This one is a no brainer. Items that should be thrown away are not supposed to go in the garage or shed.
● Try renting out a storage unit. If you do not have a garage or shed and you’d rather keep the rest of your home sightly, opt for renting a storage space. It can be a great solution to keeping items you’d rather hold on to than throw away without compromising the tidiness of your home.
