Cheap Kitchen Storage Improvements You Can Do On A Budget

1. Hanging Fruit Baskets

Baskets a-fixed to your wall where fruit and veg can be stored are an inexpensive and stylish option 

Not only does this food storage technique create more bench space but it also helps separate your fruit and vegetables out, preventing things from over ripening or get squashed by heavier produce. 

2. Glass Pantry Storage Containers

Not only are glass containers a more sustainable form of storage, but they are also a better preventative against weevils – so they protect your food and help it last longer. Not to mention they make everything organised and easy to find.

Simply purchase, or reuse, your glass jars and find a marker of your choice to label them with.

After that, switch items such as flour, sugar, oats, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, rice, even tea into their separate jar and label them accordingly. 

We love how @styledbyfliss has created this clean pantry space.

3. Vertical Tray Stacking

Baking trays can take up a lot of space.. 

One of the best ways to improve this is to simply stack your trays vertically instead of horizontally. This allows you to easily locate and pull out the tray you want without having to noisily shuffle through every tray first.

This hack works for cutting boards as well because they’re flat and take up less space when stacked vertically. 

MDF from Bunnings is cheap and can be stained or painted easily to suit your kitchen. Alternatively, visit check gumtree for free listings.
