13 Kitchen Storage Items You Never Knew You Needed


The kitchen in my apartment is not big at all. My counter space is pretty limited, and once you throw a microwave on there, there's not much room for anything else.

But I can't just not have things for my kitchen. I started looking in to storage and organization options and let me tell you, there are a ton.

These are some of the best kitchen storage and organization tools that I've found, and I'm sure they'll help you keep your space tidy!

1. Sink Caddy

A wet sponge sitting on the counter is a breeding ground for bacteria, and it leaves a mess. The sink caddy keeps everything in one spot, and allows your cloths and sponges to air dry!

3. Utensil Drawer Organizer

Not everyone has the counter space to keep their larger utensils out in the open, but a utensil drawer with no order is a recipe for disaster. This organizer lays everything out flat and allows you to find what you need quickly.

10. Fridge Storage

Clutter makes your kitchen seem even smaller, and yes that even counts the fridge. Having everything laid out is a stress-free way of organizing your kitchen and not fussing around when you're in it.

11. Can Rack Organizer

I have a lot of canned soups and veggies, because I find they're great when I'm not really in the mood to cook. Though they're convenient, the cans end up taking a lot of space in the cupboard. By using this rack, you can eliminate the clutter and add some space.

12. Plastic Bag Holder

My current plastic bag holder is just a GIANT plastic bag under the sink. This is a more convenient way to store your bags while saving under-the-sink space.
