Being a student and having shared accommodation I know you are sometimes really tight for space, so here are just a couple of easy (and cheap!) kitchen storage solutions that I use.
Shelf – I have quite tall cupboards which I would never fill to the top normally but having the shelf just means I can neatly stack a lot more in the space and easily access it.
Turntable – This is really helpful if you have lots of little bits and pieces, I use it to store spices, stock cubes and small tins. Having the 2 tiers also makes it so much easier to get to things.
Utensil Pot – Seems quite obvious what I would use this for but I have about 3 now for a variety of utensils but also for our washing up brush/sponge and gloves. This is great for tidying things out of the way and I much prefer it to having utensils all mixed together in a draw.
Glass Jar – I have a few of these as well now and use them to store rice and pasta. It makes the cupboards a lot neater than having bags which often spill. Also a bonus – if you sign up for an Ikea Family Card you get to choose a free gift so I got my first jar for free!
Other Tips – You can recycle old jars – I’m also using big coffee jars which are great for tagliatelle and other bigger pastas.
