Under The Kitchen Sink Organization

One small project I tackled before Owen’s arrival was organizing under our kitchen sink. I didn’t like how I would knock over things to get to other things in the back of the cabinet. I also wanted to be able to put items we used often in a more strategic place. First world problems.

I started by clearing everything out. Then, I put down some shelf liner, which classes things up a little in my opinion. I grabbed two plastic storage bins from Lowe’s and put our general cleaning supplies in one bin and kitchen cleaning supplies in the other. Now if I need an item in the back, I can slide the bin out and grab it.

I also invested in two storage baskets from Lowe’s for the inside of the doors. I put the items we use most often, besides dishwasher detergent, in the baskets. On one door I have disinfecting wipes and trash can liners.

I put dish soap and Brad’s heavy duty hand soap on the other door.

  4. The good ‘ol under the kitchen sink area – an area I despise. Good ideas here, which I shoudl employ once that are fills up again. When we replaced our sink, everything went into a plastic bin in the garage and I’ve slowly been bringing things back in on a need-as basis. It’s only now getting cluttered again.

    I like the hanging baskets, but do the hooks show on the front of your cabinets?

    authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same
    information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my

  6. My family always say that I am wasting my time here at web,
    but I know I am getting familiarity daily by reading thes pleasant posts.

  7. This is about 4 years too late, but personally I’d be reluctant to use those door baskets what with the hangers that go up the side and over the top, and maybe even over the other side as they look like wreath hangers. The constant movement of the doors would have to start wearing the finish or paint down. It looks like your cabinets were professionally finished, so it’s a risk I wouldn’t take. Anyways, it’s just a thought for others in the future.
