Are you wanting under kitchen sink organization ideas? I have several tips to share with just a few Dollar Tree items.
What should I put under my kitchen sink? The area under my kitchen sink had become a dumping ground for all sorts of stuff and a big fat mess. It is where I store cleaning supplies, cleaning products (many of which I don’t use anymore), scrub brushes, and similar items. Today I’m sharing my kitchen sink cabinet organization project. You will be amazed at how easy it is to create extra storage in your sink cupboard. You can do the same thing to create more storage space under the bathroom sink.
Here’s the big mess that I had before hand.

The first thing I did was empty everything out of the inside of the cabinet and sort it. If it didn’t need to be down there – it wasn’t going back in. I then wiped the entire area down and cleaned it up. You can see we had some water damage from a previous leak.
I bought some shelf liners from Dollar Store and lined the bottom of the under-sink cabinet – wow what a difference that made!
I took an old Clorox wipe container and upcycled it to hold all of our plastic grocery bags. Most of the time we use our recycled bags but we do reuse plastic bags as our garbage bags. You can find the tutorial on this upcycle here – Trash Bag Storage Dispenser Container
I bought a tension rod and placed it in front of the garbage disposal. This is one of the best ways to make extra space under a kitchen sink area or even under a bathroom cabinet. I used this to hang some of my spray bottles for easy access. The one you see here has rubbing alcohol in it for disinfecting. I also keep a spray bottle of dish soap and water as an all purpose spray, as well as vinegar and water.
I then replaced only the everyday items I needed to have in the under-sink area. I have large trash bags (my small container of grocery bags is right behind it), dishwasher, and dish soap. A few smaller items like back up dish scrubbing supplies are in storage containers in the very back.
I used a couple command adhesive hooks on the back of the cabinet door to hold some supplies I grab once and a while for cleaning. You can also find door organizers at the hardware store that fit inside of the cabinet door.
On the other side I put a portable caddy that could be easily pulled out and it contained some of our cleaning supplies. This container also comes in handy for cleaning, soaking, etc.
It is so nice to have a functional sink space that looks great.
