Home Tips On Tuesdays: The Kitchen

Keeping your kitchen cabinets neat and organized can be daunting task. Here are a few clever ideas for helpful storage solutions.

Enter the utilitarian pegboard. Tall pegs, inserted into the pegboard that lines the bottom of the drawer, keep dishes in place to minimize potential chipping and breaking. Plus, the pegs can be reconfigured if you want to change arrangements or get new dishes that are a different size. via Better Homes and Gardens

T-molding designed for wood floor transitions makes a perfect rack for stemware. Just cut it to length, predrill screw holes and screw it to the underside of a shelf. 

Use a magazine rack to store pots and pan lids. (Would be a helpful solution for tupperware lids too) 


A clever way to stay organized in those kitchen cabinets - Cutting Board Storage Rack attached to the door. Use a single wall mounted magazine rack or Diy with this helpful tutorial.

Use wire closet racks on a slant in kitcheb cabinets or pantries to store soup cans.

Free up drawer space by hanging measuring cups inside a kitchen cabinet. Position and mount a wood strip so that the cups will hang between the shelves and allow the door to close completely. Mount a second strip for your measuring spoons, then screw in cup hooks on both strips.
