It’s so easy to let the cabinet under your kitchen sink get messy. It just feels like too much work to get it together. There’s so many things that you want to keep down there because it’s so darn convenient, but the pipes and other things down there make it hard to store things without complete chaos. But I think I’ve got the solution!
We have a particularly tricky sink. There’s a lot going on in that cabinet. We have a dish disposal, instant hot water heater, water filter, and all the hookups for our dishwasher. There’s a lot of tubes and cords and whatnot under there, which makes organizing all that much harder.
I fond the perfect solution- this amazingly customizable Undersink Organizer. Seriously, this thing is ridiculously genius. It is able to fit around everything- even under our crazy busy sink! I am so excited about how much better looking and more functional that cabinet is now.
But please don’t judge me for how bad I let it get before we addressed it….
That’s pretty bad. As we’ve moved in, I just kind of threw stuff down there. It is getting to the point that it is no longer functional, so I had to address it.
Okay, so I’ll show you how I did it.
See how crazy our undersink situation is?
The first thing I did was take EVERYTHING out from under there. Every single plastic bag, brush, sponge, and miscellaneous nonsense. How did I get so much crap under there? This is always my first step to organizing. Without it I have no idea how much is actually in there and what actually needs to find a place.
Biscuit was pretty confused about all the commotion.
Then I cleaned out the cabinet- wiped everything down and used the handheld vacuum to make sure it was really clean. Then I laid out this adorable bright contact paper to make it look a little happier under there.
I put together the undersink organizer. Seriously, there aren’t enough good things to say about this organizer. It is crazy adjustable so you can fit whatever you need and work around all the crazy pipes. You have to put it together in place- or at least I did. That made it slightly trickier, but it was still so easy to figure out.
Then I decided where everything should go. I keep most of my cleaning products in the laundry closet, but there are a few that I want to be able to grab quickly. My dusting spray and all purpose cleaner top the list.
Sponges, some microfiber cloths, dishwasher tabs, and plenty of other goodies go down there. Extra dish scrubbing brushes and trash bags I also like to have close at hand. And my foldable dish rack fit perfectly next to the organizer.
We also have this amazing roll up dish rack. It lays out over the sink so it doesn’t take up counter space. I love this thing- we use it almost every day. But when it’s not in use it rolls up conveniently and fits right under the sink.
I kept all my things that I use most often under there. Most of my cleaning supplies are farther away, but I like having a few things there. I would never replace trash bags if I couldn’t grab them quickly. Or do a quick wipedown of the counters if I had to go retrieve the sponge from somewhere. It’s all about convenience. If it’s not convenient, you won’t take it out or put it away.
So there you have it- the easiest way to organize under your sink. All you need is an amazing under sink organizer.
