WFMW: Lower Cabinet Organization

I have more lower cabinets than I need in my kitchen.  After we'd lived here for about 5 years I realized that I was "losing" stuff in the abyss of one cabinet, in particular, where I kept pantry items - refills on stuff that was already open elsewhere, cans of soup, boxes of unopened crackers, etc.  (Since it's a lower cabinet, I didn't want to attract critters by putting OPEN items in it...).  

I went to Walmart and found a plastic bin that would fit into the space between the floor of the lower cabinet and the shelf in the lower cabinet, so that I could use it as a drawer and no longer lose small items in the back.  Here's a picture, because that doesn't make any sense...




Ok, so maybe it doesn't LOOK organized, but it sure beats having to pull everything out to get at the Macaroni & Cheese that's in the back, and then replace everything in the cabinet.

So, that's what Works for Me! Visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer for more WFMW tips!

I will be down shortly to steal away your extra cabinet storage!
My kitchen is galley style and it SUUUCKS!

That is a FABULOUS idea! I have narrow deep lower cabinets, too.....will have to think about the totes!

Totes are great. They make chaos look organized. Great job

I think that's a great idea! And I'm with you on how some things don't have to look organized to feel organized. :)
