If there’s one place in most homes that never seems to have enough storage space, it’s the kitchen. Between the dry foods, cookware, spices, and flatware, kitchen cabinets are often stuffed to the brim making it nearly impossible to find what you need to cook every day. Here’s how to increase your shelf space and stay organized without a major renovation.

1) Use stackable organizers for double the storage.

If you need more space for flatware, going vertical is a simple solution. These stackable kitchen shelf organizers from DecoBros can help you double your kitchen cabinet space in seconds for under $20. They’re also expandable so you can fit them to your cabinets.

Organizing your spices can save you time and frustration when you cook—but it could also give you more shelf space. This 2-tier elevated spice rack keeps all your spices visible at one time and holds 16 jars while clearing up space below the rack for other kitchen items.

Mulch creates a uniform appearance to any garden bed because it establishes a consistent background for the soil, a backdrop, which lets the flowering plants stand out. That’s what you can see. Below the surface of the soil mulch reduces evaporation and slows the growth of weeds while protecting the roots of plants in temperature extremes like no other material can. When mulch is an organic material like wood chips or bark, it improves the quality of soil as it decomposes. If mulch has a downside, we don’t know what it is, and there’s no job easier than adding it to garden beds.
