Happy Tuesday! Today for Tuesday Tips & Tricks, I am sharing how I store my cutting boards in my TINY kitchen! When you use these things everyday, having convenient Cutting Board Storage is a huge help when space is limited!
My cabinets are original to the house the house was built in the early 70’s. My lower cabinets are very deep and have a half shelf along the top. They are a good sized cabinet, however you have to stack everything in there and we all know that cutting boards would either go on the bottom because they are flat or vertical along the side. My problem is that half shelf…the larger cutting boards hit the shelf and don’t fit when standing up. Then when I remove a pot or pan the ones that are standing up fall all over the place.
I utilized some of this dead space in the front of the cabinet with a simple and very cost effective solution for cutting board storage!
Items Needed for Easy Cutting Board Storage:
I purchased a package of zip ties and a wire organizer (for foils and plastic wraps) from my local Dollar Tree. That’s right this cost me $2. And I still have a ton of zip ties left over…for you know, when I need to zip tie things! ha!
Screw the wire organizer onto your cabinet door, making sure that when you close the door there is enough clearance for anything inside plus your organizer and cutting boards. Also make sure you put it low enough so your tallest cutting board will fit when you close the cabinet door.
Since the bottom is open slats and the board would just slip out. I simple tied on a few zip ties and trimmed the excess off.
Voila. My cutting boards are easily accessible. Easy in, Easy out and nothing falls over when I take one out and I don’t have to rearrange my pots and pans every time we need an apple cut!!
