1. THE HANGING STORAGE SHELF
If you have cupboard shelves which are wide apart, this wire storage shelf is a great way to make use of the wasted space above. It neatly slides under the shelf and is suitable to store cups, small plates, tissue rolls, drinks bottles and more.
If you’re feeling fancy you can even spray paint these shelves gold, silver or black for a premium look and at only £3.50 from Wilko what’s not to love?
2. THE 3 TIER ORGANISER
This tiered organiser is my kitchens best friend. Do you struggle to reach some of your tinned food that sits at the back of the shelf or are there some you’ve even forgot about that’s exceeded its sell by date? This little device allows you to see all your cans by storing them at varied heights.
It also makes your cupboards look ‘shoppable’ and will leave your guests feeling impressed by your exceptional organisation skills. Believe me when I say you NEED this in your life. Don’t think about it, just buy it – £4.50 from Wilko.
3. THE ROTATING ORGANISER
Another great Wilko find is this round shelf organiser for £4. You can store jars, short bottles or spices and best of all it rotates making it easy for you reach your items. Both the top and bottom can be used as shelves therefore a great space saver!
Also known as a ‘Lazy Susan’ in other countries and similar can be purchased here .
4. IKEA SPICE JARS £2
I do love IKEA for its storage solutions and these RAJTAN spice jars are brilliant. At only £2 per pack of 4 it works out at only 50p a jar – bargain! You can stand them up on their side or bottom and they fit perfectly into small spaces. Below are some ideas of how you can store them – side-by-side in a pull-out corner unit or lined up in a drawer. These also look great on open shelves and spice racks.
5. AIR-TIGHT STORAGE CONTAINERS £9.99-24.99
If like me you spend hours on Pinterest and home Instagram accounts scrolling through other people’s food pantries and larder cupboards, you’ve probably felt a bit envious of the beautifully arranged cereals, pastas and snacks.
No matter how big or small your space is, this look can easily be achieved using food storage containers. I use air-tight plastic ones from Amazon, but you can buy containers from most essential homeware stores like Poundland, B&M, TK Maxx etc.
The key is to buy the same design and shape so they all match. Matching containers lined up side-by-side or back to front tallest to shortest makes all the difference.
I hope you enjoyed these budget friendly storage ideas and that it has given you some inspiration to re-arrange your kitchen cupboards. Take care, stay safe and happy organising!Love, Naheeda x
