If you’re looking for a simple, cheap, yet totally smart product for your small kitchen, buy a big magnetic hook right now and hang it on the side of your fridge.

Here’s why.

Magnetic hooks hit that hard-to-find kitchen solution sweet spot: they’re cheap, renter-friendly, make use of an otherwise under-utilized space (the side of the fridge), and mostly importantly, will make your kitchen a little neater.

Last year my friend and colleague Carrie hung a magnetic hook on her fridge. As she wrote in a post for Apartment Therapy:

All my life I’ve hooked a towel around the fridge door handle because it was easy and it was there and I just didn’t give it much thought. [The magnetic hook] gives the fridge front a more streamlined look and is another easy way to use the vertical surface of the fridge.

A straight-up stainless steel hook is simple and unobtrusive, but you could also go for something like the tree twig magnet, shown above, for a little fun!
