You'd think cookie sheets would be relatively easy to organize, because they're flat-ish and rectangular. But in reality, they rarely stack unless you buy a set, and even if you can get them properly piled up, you inevitably want the one at the bottom come baking time. Fortunately, there are solutions.
Here are the smartest ways to organize your baking sheets.
1. File them in a cabinet.
Use a basic, non-tiered file organizer to turn that cavernous space above the fridge into a neatly organized baking zone. Kevin and Amanda (from the blog of the same name) shared this photo above and let us all in on a little secret: They do the same thing to organize glass baking dishes, muffin tins, pie pans, and cake pans.

2. Build a custom DIY drawer.
Deep bin-style drawers with dividers inside are perfect to keep cookie sheets in order. Make your own using these handy instructions by Megan from Two Feet First.

3. Squeeze them between the cabinet and stove.
Narrow cabinets (which are usually put between the rest of the cabinets and the stove out of desperation!) are just the right size for a collection of cookie sheets, as this kitchen from Lowe's proves.

4. Organize them in a pantry between tension rods.
We love this idea from Martha Stewart: Set up a few tension rods on pantry shelves to create customizable cubbies to stand up sheet pans, cutting boards, and larger serving platters.

5. Stash them in a toe kick drawer.
Did you know there are a few inches of wasted space under almost every base cabinet? Convert it to a drawer and it's perfect for flat items, as Shawn from I Wash You Dry found.

6. Add lots of shelves.
Who says you can only have two or three shelves per cabinet? Add a few more to easily stack cookie sheets and other bakeware, like Andrea Dekker did in her kitchen.
