Use a rolling cart for extra storage. When you can�t seem to find any more free drawers or cabinets; and installing another built-in cabinet isn�t your option, you can opt to use a rolling cart. Sometimes, an open storage is best for you and since it�s a rolling cart and not designated in a specific spot, you can bring it wherever you need it close to you.   

Make use of command hooks, tension rods and extra baskets.  Doesn�t it get under your skin when your soap, powder soaps, spray bottles and other cleaning detergents and tools tools are forever cluttered. No matter what you do, you just couldn�t get them stacked neatly. Well the solution to that will change your life -- command hooks, tiny baskets and tension rods. Every free space shouldn�t go unnoticed. So if you want to maximize those unused space, mount these materials and utilize the extra space.

Metal towel bars as lid racks. Don�t you hate it when you�re having a hard time getting a pot out of the pile of pots? Be careful not to drop one. Also, how much time have you lost trying to figure out where to put next those lids? Well, the answer is here. Mount a towel rack (not too bulky; preferably those that stands around 2 inches) onto the sides of your wooden cabinet or inside your cabinet, whichever you choose. There you have it, slide in your lids and let them have their own home.

Divide spaces in your drawers. Throwing your utensils in a drawer without dividers or any other tool to separate one from another will do no good for you. It is a nightmare. If you have the patience and a few dollars in your pocket, you�ll have a well-organized and neat utensils drawer that you will surely adore. You have the option to glue the divider board in the drawer or not. As a suggestion, glue the boards together and skip gluing them in the drawer itself. That way you can lift the divider piece and clean the drawer seamlessly.

Mount a pegboard and start hanging. If you live in a rental or a small kitchen space, this could be a big help for your organization and stacking dilemma. To squeeze in more extra pockets here and there, hang tiny baskets where you can put your utensils, spices, etc. Hang your essentials strategically so you can maximize the space and not waste an inch.

Container everything! Just when you thought there aren�t any more options, one of the most cheapest and ideal hacks would be storing everything by order in containers and then putting them in your shelves. If you have an open shelves storage, you might want to consider choosing uniformed containers to make it appear nice and tidy. Moreover, since you�re storing everything in a container, think about getting rid of your flour carton and keep it in a mason jar or glass container. The same goes for your cereal, sugar, coffee, baking soda, cornstarch, etc. And while you�re at it, label the containers accordingly.
