16 Smart Dollar Store Ideas To Declutter Your Kitchen

Organized? Check. Cheap? Double check.

1. Organize your fridge with a few small bins.

It's pretty straightforward, but you can read more about how this mom organized her fridge here.

2. Then employ bins in your pantry, too.

3. Use small baskets to clean up your cutlery drawer.

4. This also works for rounding up everything from tea to Tylenol.

5. Use tension rods to store your cutting boards and baking sheets so they're easily accessible.

6. Or buy a basic wire rack and some zip ties to keep them on the inside of your cabinet door.

See the tutorial here — the blogger got both the organizer and the zip ties at Dollar Tree. You'd have to have the space in the front of your cabinets to have a wire rack there, of course.

7. Then use magazine files to hold your placemats and paper goods.

8. Pick out some small baskets for canned food organization.

9. Go hardcore Pinterest and transfer all of your dry goods to matching glass canisters.

10. Line your drawers with inexpensive (non-seasonal) gift wrap.

Sure it's not a ~permanent~ solution, but it's a cute way to decorate your kitchen, and protect the bottom of your drawers. And it's easy enough to swap out (or remove completely) if you get tired of it or if it gets torn or dirty. See how to do it here.

11. Pick up a binder to house all of your favorite recipes.

12. Attach magnets to small plastic baskets to make a nifty spice rack that fits on the side of your fridge.

You could also use removable hooks to hang them on a wall, if the side of your fridge isn't available. See how to do it here.

13. Pair s-hooks with binder clips for some simple pot storage.

14. Get a few self-adhesive hooks to make an easy-grab station for your measuring spoons.

Especially good for frequent bakers. Read more about it here.

15. Line your refrigerator shelves with (off brand) wax paper, plastic wrap, or cling film.

16. Cover leftovers with shower caps.

This is particularly great for oddly-shaped containers, if you hate wrestling with plastic wrap. From here.

Now go enjoy your organized kitchen AND all of the money you saved!
