Getting Corky in my Kitchen

We were in need of a bit of organization in our kitchen. The "catch-all" drawer and basket was getting a bit overwhelming and being a visual person that wasn't working for me. I decided to purchase some inexpensive cork tiles at Hobby Lobby for $6 and used the adhesive squares it came with to adhere them to the inside of a cabinet door that is frequently used -aka the snack cabinet. I was then able to pin up many things that I wanted to access to including our weekly dinner menu, coupons, and photos. It took only a couple of minutes and we then had a DIY cork board hidden within a cabinet.

I love that it was cheap, easy to do, and practical. Anyone else have any easy DIY organization tips for those items you don't want sitting in a pile. If so do share.

Great idea!!! I love that it is inside the cabinet! Hmmm, one organizational tip I have is we keep all of our take-out menus in page protectors in a 3-prong folder.
