Organize under your kitchen sink

Mine wasn’t that bad, mostly because we don’t own that much for cleaning supplies and I store the bathroom cleaning stuff in the bathroom. Still, there’s always room for improvement, mostly to make everything easier to see and reach.under kitchen sink before

The pink thing is a plastic bin that came with the house we owned 2 houses ago. One house ago I painted it pink for my pink and green laundry room redo. In this house it’s been in the garage since we moved in. I drilled and screwed two large L-brackets into the cupboard wall, taking care not to drill straight through to the other side, then measured the holes of the brackets that extended under the pink bin so I could drill a hole in the bin and screw-and-bolt-it to the L-brackets. It sounds complicated but the worst part was finding screws and a drill bit that were the same size.

I put the white kitchen bin bag roll in a plastic basket ($2 Dollar Store- my only purchase for this upgrade) as well as the roll of garbage bags.

The SOS pads went into the pink bin.

I used one 3M Command hook and one screw-in hook (again, don’t drill through the door) to hold the kitchen gloves and microfiber cloth on curtain hooks. Those curtain hooks are on of the greatest inventions ever. It’s a circle that will fit on most curtain rods (or hooks) and it has a pincer attached to grab the curtain, or dish gloves.

You could also use a binder clip instead of a curtain pincer.

The rest was placed just so, so I could see everything I had under there.
