Kitchen Storage Ideas

I’d been moving out to a new house. While doing this, I found out that moving to a new house is a great way to discard old and unused stuff. My grandma used to say that everyone should do a mock move every 2 or 4 years, and now I understand why. It’s unbelievable how much stuff we keep, most of it is unusued or even useless.

I love this new house, it is bigger and we fit better, my baby has her own room and there are two bathrooms instead of one. The only problem is that the new kitchen is not as big as the old one. I had to sell and give away some stuff, and to optimize small spaces. So I got my hands on searching around the web for some kitchen storage ideas. I would like to share what I found with you.

My first storage big problem were the pot and pan lids, here are some ideas for storing them and saving some space.
