I don't know about you, but the area under my kitchen sink is basically chaos. Yes, I have a few systems, including some cleaning bins and one little shelf, but it only stays clean for a short time before it starts looking sloppy again.
Luckily, a quick spin through Pinterest recently gave me all the inspiration — it's amazing what some smart hacks, good containers, and DIY skills can do to turn this normally dark and messy space into one that's Pin-worthy.
Here are the best under-the-kitchen-sink organizing ideas on Pinterest.
1. Stack clear containers.
The benefit of clear containers: You can quickly figure out what's inside, while keeping things neatly corralled and easy to access. That's what Abby — from Just a Girl and Her Blog — found when she redid the area under her kitchen sink. Using a mix of containers from OXO, a caddy, and a few other containers (plus a little help from contact paper for prettiness), she got that area cleaned up.

2. Hang a tension rod.
This hack's been around the internet, but I love how this idea (from Passion for Home) includes a container for sponges, too. Hang a tension rod so that it spans the inside of your cabinet, then hook the handles of spray bottles onto the rod.

3. Stick up hooks
Add hooks onto the inside of the cabinet to get small items — like dish gloves, brushes and more — up and out of the way. Here, Toni from A Bowl Full of Lemons used simple-yet-colorful Command Hooks, and that's what I'd recommend, too.

4. Repurpose a spice rack.
I'm a big fan of using the insides of cabinet doors for storage, and this hack —from I Heart Organizing — is a fresh take on it. Use a wall-mounted spice rack inside the cabinet door to hold smaller items (like scrub brushes and sponges) that can easily get lost in the depths.

5. Add a turntable
Lazy Susans may have "lazy" in the name, but they are actually a workhorse tool that can help you reach the deepest corners of your cabinets. Sarah from Mommy Suite used a plastic one with a rubberized base to organize her supplies and make them all reachable without having to take other stuff out.
