While we are huge fans of any and all smart organizational finds, we give extra points to anything that’s also smart-looking. After all, if something is an eyesore, it’s not going to give you much pleasure, is it? That’s what brings us back (again and again) to Yamazaki Home. We’ve written about our love for this gorgeous storage brand before, and our passion has not wavered. In fact, it’s possible we might love it now more than ever before — because we just realized that the brand offers so many ways to put the side of the fridge to good use.

The Side of Your Fridge Is Storage Waiting to Happen

Even if you have an itty-bitty kitchen, we bet there’s storage space just waiting to be used. We’re talking about the sides of your refrigerator. It’s possible you may just be dealing with one side, and even still, there is a lot you can do. Skip the cutesy magnets and clutter-y papers, and try one of these gorgeous magnetic organizers instead.

1. Yamazaki Home Magnetic Kitchen Organization Rack

This slim, low-profile shelf packs a surprising punch with three separate storage areas. The top shelf is ideal for storing your most-used spices, tucking away cleaning supplies, or keeping aluminum foil at the ready; the middle section is designed for paper or cloth towels but could also be used for hanging spray bottles, kitchen gloves, or microfiber cloths; and the bottom hooks are handy for tools and oven mitts. In short, this is your one-stop spot for those things you’re always reaching for — without having to open up a door or drawer.

Clear your countertops with this ingenious basket, which can easily hold your wooden spoon collection, salt and pepper, olive oil, and whatever else you want close at hand without taking up precious cooking space. Or turn it into a mini pantry, spice rack, or place to stash your vitamins. The magnet is shockingly strong, so don’t be afraid to load this basket up.

3. Yamazaki Tosca Magnetic Dish Towel Holder

This storage solution does exactly what it says it will: It holds your dish towels. But it does so while looking impossibly chic. In fact, it’s so good looking, many reviewers note that they’ve put it on the front of the fridge (instead of the side). Whatever you choose, your dish towel has never had a better place to hang.
