Organization: Plastic Wrap, Aluminum Foil, Etc...


Do you have a small kitchen?



Gentle readers, Boyfriend and your MatchGirl are in a constant conversation as to how to better organize our tiny, tiny kitchen. Something we've yet to agree on is how to store those boxes of aluminum foil, plastic wrap, Zip-Loc bags, parchment paper, etc... Boyfriend likes to have them handy on a shelf near the stove. I'm not so sure that's the best use of that space.

Perusing the best website ever (ie ContainerStore.com) this morning, I came upon some organizational ideas for these annoying, yet necessary, little boxes.

This I see a kitchen organizing project in our future...

  1. My kitchen, while small, is set up a little different from yours. We bought a bin from Ikea and have all of the boxes standing up vertically (like the photo) on one side, and on the other is where we have a sort of bendy basket thing where we keep produce bags-- but would be a good place for plastic bags to reuse, recycling, etc. We have a very wide under sink/counter area that has no divisions, so it is what we could do to create a space, and works pretty well-- especially since we don't use those things every day, but they are pretty handy when we do.

  2. I should say also, that I am not usually a fan of those cabinet door things because they limit what you can put into the cabinet (unless you have really deep cabinets) and they can make larger objects tricky to get in and out of the cabinet (unless your door opens almost 180º). They just feel unnecessarily limiting.

  3. We have one small cabinet which is super under-utilized, which is the only reason I feel the door thing might be a good idea for these annoying boxes. But now that you mention it, getting things in and out from the particular cabinet I was thinking of might be a pain in the butt... We were hoping to hang them on the wall somewhere, but there's simply not enough room.

    It's a little difficult to organize a small kitchen, especially going from a large one, but totally worth it in the long run!

  4. This principle and essential physical trademark additionally makes it all the more striking and appealing for applications in different fields where minimizing weight is exceptionally critical, for example, aviation, building and skyscraper development ventures. http://aluminiumgutteringcompany.co.uk/
