Works for me Wednesday


You know how much space utensils and other gadgets take up in your drawers and cabinets? Here's how I store mine:


I have a piece of pegboard in my pantry. You can buy different types of hooks for hanging different things. It's amazing how much can be stored in a small vertical area. I even have my big fry pan hanging on it.

I was just complaining about my utensil drawer being loaded but I don't have a pantry and I'm limited with space.

I like how organized and neat it looks though.

THIS idea would eliminate all the clutter I have in one drawer in my kitchen! Clever idea Mari.

Thanks for stopping by. I always look forward to your visit.

Jennifer said...

That is a great idea. I'm sure it makes it way easier to find what you are looking for too!
Smiles!

Susan said...

Another great idea. Unfortunately I don't have a pantry.

Connie said...

What a neat idea. I have a tall/large jar on my counter next to the stove that I put all my wooden spatulas etc. in - works for me.

Ally said...

I love this idea! I have my utensils in an old jug on my counter top--I think it looks cluttered though. If I had the space I'd steal this idea for sure! Thanks for sharing.

Brooke said...

very cool! why should such a good idea be limited to tools in the garage.

Amanda said...

Not only is it organized, but it looks so cool!

Fantastic tip! Thanks!

If only I had a pantry..my hearts desire.
Till then - I know my mansion in heaven will have the pantry of all pantry's - I will remain cluttered!
sigh~

Mari,

I love this idea of a new way of organizing. I mean you can see everything without digging through drawers. Might have to try that one.

What a great idea Mari and everything seems so handy. Much better than having to dig through a drawer!

Lorie said...

What a neat idea!! I tried your french lasagna last night and it got double thumbs up from everyone!!

If you have ever watched Julia CHilds...you've got it all except that she had lines tracing out where each item belonged so that it was easy to put everything back into place!
you should do that too! lol

did you see Julie and Julia the movie?

ciao

I wish you could see my face right now. This is what it says:

"Wow. That's really crafty. Why haven't I ever thought about that?"

(Answer: Because I'm very non-crafty. ;) )

Betty said...

What a great idea! That would save a lot of drawer space, but I doubt that we have these pegboards here.

Mari, Thanks for dropping by to see me and your kind remarks...
I thought it was interesting that you stayed in the Eagle's Nest at the Potters House Retreat....Names just reversed......
I love your peg board idea...holds so much stuff and you can see everything.... Not have to dig around to find what you need...
Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and Blessings,
Butterfly

What a way to keep organized. Love it!

~Ginger said...

I love the idea, but don't have a pantry or a good place to do this. Besides, what is all that stuff and what do you do with it, LOL

Mari,
I think this is a safer method for storing sharp objects. I'm always worried someone is going to slice a finger reaching for the pizza cutter.

Crystal said...

I can't wait until we have a new house (hopefully our OWN) and can do things like this. I haven't had a pantry in so long I don't even know if I'd know what to do with one!!! =)
