12 Clever Kitchen Storage Hacks You’ve Never Thought Of Before
Is something always falling on your head when you open up those kitchen cabinets? Then these are for you!
Use a tension rod to hang spray bottles
Instead of digging for your spray bottles under the sink, or piling them on top of each other, save yourself the mess with this nifty trick. Place a tension rod between the sides of the counter underneath your sink, and hang the spray bottles between the lever and the handle.
Use dividers for your cookie sheets
Even though cookie sheets are flat, they are always a paint to have to get. Typically people like to pile things on top of them to save room, which means having to dig every time you want to make some cookies or a sheet-pan dinner. Instead, use these simple 4-sort dividers for an easy grab! They also work great to organize the lids for your pots and pans.

Organize those cutting boards
With a simple package of zip ties and a wire organizer, you can easily recreate this hack inside another one of your cabinet doors. Again, no more digging for a cutting board that’s below all your pots and pans.
