All kitchens, great and small, can benefit from clever ideas for storing kitchen gadgets, linens, and foods. Not only can creative packaging help find appropriate spaces for kitchen things, but they can add interest and style to any kitchen as well.
~ Metal tins with lids make great containers for tea, sugar packets, or recipes.
~ A garden urn lined with a fabric napkin holds flatware and old silver where it is easy to reach for daily use.
~ A fishing creel can hold oils and vinegars and look pretty when hung on a wall near a work area.
~ A clear glass cruet makes a lovely holder for liquid dishwashing or hand soap.
~ A small basket works as a handy container for powdered dishwasher detergent. A teaspoon works as a scoop and provides just the right measure.
~ A magnificent soup tureen doesn't need to sit empty. Fill it with zip-locks filled with crackers, seeds, or nuts. Great storage!
~ A large and sturdy basket set on the kitchen floor works well to store oversize baking stones.
~ Likewise, long and narrow baskets can be set on a countertop to hold chopsticks, skewers, and other items that are hard to contain in a drawer.
~ The inside of a cupboard door works great as a mini bulletin board. Attach recipes, menu charts, & schedules.
~ Fill a three-tiered hanging mesh basket with jars of vitamins and herbs. They are handy and easy to remember when in such clear view.
