Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
use sink caddies on the sides of the pantry or closet wall. Smart way to keep track of all of those small packages of pantry items. they are just little sink caddies, held on to the wall by self-adhesive velcro dots!
