Cutting Board Slots

Okay, this isn’t directly food, but you need cutting boards in your kitchen so you can safely chop your food. Even though you only need one or two cutting boards, it’s natural to have a few more. The unfortunate factor is that they tend to take up more room in your kitchen, which leaves less storage room for your food. 

One way to overcome this problem and allow more room for your food is to place cutting boards in slots. You can make your slot right inside of the cupboard by adding vertical wood pieces inside so the boards can sit up without falling over.
