  1. The magnet board!!! It’s perfect! I always have trouble with labeling the spices, finding the right one for my meal, keeping them nicely organized in one place…. Magnet board – that’s the solution :)

  2. I know in theory, the drawer with kitchen utensils standing up looks like a good idea, but it looks like a lot of wasted space to me. It takes up two whole drawers, which is fine if storage is at abundant, but not so great if it is at a premium.
