Simple Solutions: Easy Storage For Your Kitchen Necessities

I admit that I am not the most organized person in the world,
but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve...
granted most of them have been passed down from relatives and long time friends...
but they are good! And now I am going to share one of them with you!
And, if you are like me...ways to maximize space and
create efficient storage solutions in the kitchen in a top priority.

Easy Kitchen Storage EVER from 504 Main

For the longest time I was frustrated with how to store my cutting boards,
baking racks, baking sheets and even pot lids.
Then I remembered this trick I learned from a family friend!

So you know those metal file holders/sorters...
they are AMAZING in the kitchen.
The keep you cabinets tidy and your necessities sorted and ready to go!

And better yet...this is one of the easiest DIY's EVER!

I pick up my metal file holders at thrift stores - they are super cheap ($2.00-4.00)
I clean them up and place them in my cabinets.
Then I sort out my items.
Things like cutting boards, baking racks, etc. store great when "filed" like this!

In this cabinet I used the metal file sorter for my most used items,
but I also use a metal file sorter in other ways.
I store my pot lids this way and I store my baking pans -
like mini donut pan, mini muffin pans, muffin tins this way as well.

  1. That's a great idea. I never see those anywhere, but I'll start watching. Can you get a casserole dish in them?

    1. A standards Pyrex casserole dish fits right in. The spaces on mine are just about 2.5"

  2. Love it, Holly! I have a vertical stand for my cutting boards and baking pans too! It is a necessity in my small kitchen, for sure! Great tip! Have a super week!

  3. That is an excellent idea! I hate when my pot lids fall out of the cabinet every time I open it!

  4. My hubby was wondering if i knew what to do with cookies sheets bravo with wonderful idea. May i share this on face book and google?


Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation! I sure hope you come back for more!
