The kitchen is probably the most used room in the house.  It is the room we cook in, and the room we often entertain in.

If your kitchen is anything like mine, it may look great, but upon closer inspection, the drawers are disorganized and it can be difficult to find what you are looking for.

If you love to cook as much as I do, you know how frustrating it can be when your pantry is disorganized and overflowing, or your cabinets are filled with pots and pans.  It’s not just an eyesore, it’s inefficient.

I love it when people find inexpensive ways to do something.  Or to repurpose something in a whole new way.

Here is some inspiration with 16 budget-friendly hacks to organize every part of your kitchen, with only one trip to the dollar store.

Organize Under the Kitchen Sink

I think the expression “everything and the kitchen sink” might refer to all of the odds and ends that have come to live in that space.

Finding my way around everything that has been thrown (I mean carefully placed) under there can be a nightmare.  Particularly because you have to work around pipes and other fixtures.

Here are some amazing ways to keep it organized, on a budget.

    I love organization as much as the next girl, but I try as hard as I can to avoid Dollar Store, because stuff that cheap can’t be made by someone who is treated well. So I try to buy secondhand or made in America instead!

      I completely understand you. Sometimes, budget wins. But yes, you are right, buying local or second hand can be a great alternative.
