1. Add Additional Shelves Inside of Your Cabinet

For some of you out there, this tip might seem obvious. But there are a lot of people who don’t realize that you can add extra shelves into your existing cabinet. If you take a peek inside, most cabinets have notches running up and down the sides. This makes it possible for you to place shelves whenever you want. Do some measurements to see how much vertical space is left after putting your objects in the cabinet. There might be so much wasted space, you could add one or two extra shelves. This can be a huge life saver.

Before you go to the hardware store, remove all of the objects from your existing cabinet, and measure exactly how big it is. This will help you find the additional drawers when you visit a hardware store like Lowes or Home Depot. Sometimes, you can’t simply add extra drawers, if your cabinets were custom-made. This might be worth your time and money to find a local carpenter who can make the cuts of wood to create new drawers for you. It might seem like a lot of work, it’s still one of the best kitchen organization projects you could do.
