When I tell you this blew my mind, I mean it. These magnetic spice jars are a fantastic way to clean up your cupboards and be able to see all your spices without having to drag them all out of the cupboard — IYKYK. The ones that stick to the side of your fridge like this set from Gneiss also make for a pretty cool wall feature. The set comes with 24 rustic looking glass jars that have stainless steel magnetic lids and washable labelling stickers that can be placed on lids or glass bottoms. While they’re on the more expensive side, $119 for the set, they’re more of a long-term investment.

While you might already have a draw organiser, these expandable bamboo cutlery organisers from Amazon are a chic upgrade. Setting you back around $35, it expands from 13-inches to 19.7-inches wide to display two additional compartments, giving you seven in total.

Magazine Holders

As someone who used to work in magazines, it hurts me to say this — but since we rarely buy magazines anymore, it’s nice to know that magazine holders can be repurposed for even better use! This TikToker uses magazine holders to organise cartons of foil and clingwrap in her cupboard, and how she also uses it to organise Tupperware lids (genius)! She also demonstrates how good it is for organising coffee pods in your cupboard — really resourceful stuff, especially when this chic white set from Amazon will only set you back $22.

The draw full of pots and pans at the start of that TikTok is exactly what mine looks like. So, of course, I immediately jumped on Amazon to find an organiser. A few are similar to the one on TikTok, where you stack all the lids either horizontally or vertically. Then, there are a few that you can secure to the back of a door or hide in a cupboard.
