This past weekend I tackled organizing under my kitchen sink. YIKES! We have lived in this home for 4 years and I have just kept piling stuff under the sink until it looked like this:
I know some of you are thinking that it isn't that bad, but when you can't even find your everyday cleaner....that's a problem!
So...I went to Pinterest for some inspiration and here is what I found:
The lazy susan would give me a place for the items I use daily and I liked the idea of the tension rod to hold my spray bottles. It would also give me some extra space below to organize other cleaning products.
It was then off to Target!
These small plastic bins were also perfect size for under the sink and they were on sale for $3.99 each!
My last purchase was the tension rod for $5.99. I bought a thin oval rod instead of a round rod. I knew that some of my spray bottles had smaller nozzles, so the rod had to be a bit thinner.
It ended up working out perfect!
I emptied everything out from underneath the sink and gave it a good cleaning!
(who knows when the last time that happened)
Have you ever wondered why there are so many contraptions under the sink? I mean...you would think they would have come up with a better idea by now! Geez!
Next, the oval tension rod went up! It was placed from one end of the cabinet to the other.
The Lazy susan was placed closest to the door for immediate access. These are mostly products I use on a regular basis (minus the Ant Killer).
One plastic bin went closer to the back with supplies that are used only on rainy days.
And.....the finished product!
Not too spiffy huh? Aside from going to Target, this whole project maybe took me 45mins to organize.
So far so good! It has stayed this way for 3 days now...hehe.
This little bit of organization only cost me $20! And to think....I was going to go to The Container Store to buy some items. I would have walked out of there with at least $50-$100 worth.
So thankful for Target....my first love!
