I don't know about everyone else, but I have a fairly small kitchen and not a ton of counter or cabinet space and everything always seems to be lined up or crammed into one corner making it looked cluttered and disorganized. A few years ago we actually had our dishwasher removed to add extra cabinet space, which I know is a big "no-no" in the real estate world, but a place to put pots and pans seemed more important at the time. I found a site with some really clever ways to help get items and gadgets off your counters and up in the air or in storage containers. I really thought the baskets & caddies on a rod was unique and inventive along with pasta/beans/snacks in mason jars suspended below your cabinets. I hope at least one of these tips gets your creativity flowing and helps you out with what seems to be a common problem especially with apartment or small home living!
