But fear not for I have some awesome, easy, and cheap DIY kitchen organization tips, tricks, and techniques for you. So without further chit-chat, let’s get into it! 

21 Brilliant DIY Kitchen Organization Ideas

1. Bamboo Skewers As Knife Holders

It’s extremely important to keep your knives covered for safety as well as sanitization reasons. I for sure have unfortunately hurt myself way too many times because of leaving these sharp objects around. But buying a knife stand can be a little over the top and even seem unnecessary at times. So instead of that, fill up a jar with bamboo skewers or barbeque sticks and place them in that. 

2. Under The Sink

3. Cutting Boards As Utensil Holders
