No matter how big your kitchen is, it’s safe to say you could use a little more space.
And, keeping your kitchen at least somewhat clutter-free and organized will definitely free up a lot more space.
These are 15 awesome ways to organize your kitchen and create a better kitchen!
1. Store Your Spices in Drawers

The space underneath your sink is usually unused or maybe only one or two cleaning items are there. To take full advantage of this under-used area, you can install this two-tier sliding shelf to store cleaning supplies.
It screws to the bottom of the cabinet so it’s really stable when sliding out the baskets. The sliding also makes the items inside the organizers so much more accessible too!
6. See-Through Containers
