How to organise under the kitchen sink cupboard

From a recent survey I learnt that the kitchen, and in particular under the kitchen sink, is one of the cupboards that many of my readers have trouble keeping tidy. I keep my under the kitchen sink cupboard fairly minimal for a few reason:

- It’s easier to find what I need

- There is less clutter as I’m using less commercial cleaners.

I thought it would be good to share a post on ‘How to organise under the kitchen sink cupboard’ so you can see how I sort out mine and you can have another clutter-free space in the house!

You want to make this cupboard organised enough that everything has a place to avoid it from becoming a mess. You only want to have supplies in there that you use regularly to avoid it becoming too cluttered.

- Remove everything from the cupboard, grouping similar items together

- Access what was under the sink

- Purge anything you no longer need

These drawers are from Bunnings. In the top drawer I keep my tea towels. Previously, I stored them on the other side of the kitchen. I’ve moved my stash to directly under the sink so we don’t drip water onto the floor. In the lower drawers I have dishwasher tablets and spare sponges.

This aqua tension rod holds my homemade cleaning bottles, it helps to keep the cupboard clutter free. I got this rod a few years ago from . Tension rods are extremely hard to find, if you find one please let me know! Bunnings don’t sell them. Spotlight have some great quality ones, however, their smallest is 80cm.

I’ve placed 3M hooks on the cupboard door to hold our gloves. I have 2 pairs one for my small hands and one for my hubby .

I have recently changed from my glass jar of to this plastic container, only because I wanted more wipes on hand as I found I was using up the 6 wipes that would fit in the old jar far too quickly.

Happy to share, on the most part a good declutter and tidy up will always help with making it more manageable ????

Just reading your post about how to organise the cupboard under the sink. I think you could buy a curtain rod & tension ends from any curtain shop & it would do the same job as you can get it cut to fit. Keep up the good work cos i love your emails.

So tidy. Ours isn’t too bad but a lot of the space is taken up with fitted bins and a water filter. It does get grungy under there though so it’s time for a cleanout.

You could always use a shower curtain rod instead of the tension rod. They have them at the Dollar Store, Freds, or Family Dollar. Possibly at Walmart too.

Hi, Katrina. The tension rod is a brilliant idea! I just hang my cleaning bottle spray on a small kitchen rack which also has a rod. However, it is exposed and can be an eyesore. Now you gave me an idea on how to store it under the sink!

Love that idea it looks well organised and clean. Under my sink is all cluttered with fly spray, shower cleaner, hand cleaner, borax etc. Where do you store all that type of stuff?

This is an amazing idea. I’m definitely going to do my cupboards this weekend. Thank you

What a genius under sink solution.

If I can manage to lower my shelf to still store my fry pan, Sandwich press and piemaker…

Make my life so much easier, when I tidy up a few weeks ago I found 3 bottles of dish washing liquids several opened packets of sponges scorers and long lost tin of dog food.. think of the money I could save…If I can srt out the shelf problem it’s a fixed shelf…… Thanks ???

Thanks for your great tips. You can purchase tension rods from eBay the smallest I saw was 30-50cm. ?
