20+ Brilliant DIY Projects to Organize Your KitchenI don’t have a lot of storage in my kitchen. Let’s face it – I don’t have a ton of storage in my entire apartment. I have to be really smart about how I organize everything.

Unfortunately I’m not smart enough to come up with really great ideas for organization on my own (it’s not one of my strong areas), so I have to rely on other smart people who know exactly what they are doing when it comes to setting up a space efficiently.

I found 20+ ideas to organize your kitchen – and by “your” I mean “mine.” But seriously, some of these DIYs are genius, and I think you will appreciate them as well. Scroll down to organize your kitchen!
