Organize your dishes and pantry items with these kitchen cabinet storage tricks that help you store more.

Organize a Pantry

Perk up the inside of your pantry with attractive and colorful storage containers--groceries will be easier to find and your cabinets will instantly look more organized. Expand storage options by hanging containers on magnetic boards attached to the back of the door.

Snack Canisters

Keep everyday items, such as cereal and snacks, low and in clear containers so they are easy to see and reach. Tall, rectangular containers utilize full shelf height and fit snugly in its width.

Magnetic Containers

Magnetic spice containers are also handy for storing tiny snacks. These round jars hold grab-on-the-go sweets and sticks of gum--small items that often spill and clutter a cupboard.

List Clip

The back of the pantry door is the perfect spot to organize unruly coupons and grocery lists. Use interesting magnets and magnetic clips to hold them tight.

Note Holder

Turn a notepaper holder from the office supply store into a handy pantry bucket. A strip of magnetic tape turned this metal bin into a container for organizing small items that might get lost in a large cabinet.

Clear Reach

The top shelf of a kitchen cabinet is hard to see. Store less-frequently used items up top in clear containers. Adjust the top shelf so it is shorter than the bottom, maximizing the lower, more convenient shelves. Airtight plastic keeps these marshmallows and cookies fresh longer than their original wrappings.

Lazy Susan

Use lazy Susans on high or low shelves. Because they spin, you'll always find the small jars that used to get lost in the back corners of your cabinet.

Lined Baskets

Organize packaged snacks in wicker baskets with handles and cloth liners. They look tidy and corral small items. Narrow baskets keep the packages upright for grab-and-go ease.
