I. Hang a lot of things
One of the best ways to utilize the hanging hack it to create racks inside your cabinets. You not only save space on your kitchen wall, you give the kitchen a more open and spacious look. To use this hack, hang only flat utensils inside the rack or on nails in the cabinet door. You want the cabinet to be closed when not in use. If the things you hang prevents the door from closing, you have defeated the purpose.

II. Reduce space with Ziploc
If you make a lot of food in advance or keep food in the refrigerator, using Tupperware (rubber maids) is a norm. Unfortunately, they tend to take up a lot of space in the fridge and if you have a small fridge, this might prove to be a bit of a problem. Using Ziploc bags to store food, vegetables and other perishables in the fridge will save space and still keep thugs fresh. Ziploc bags can be used to store cereals to save space on the shelves.
III. Utilize shelves
Use the already existing shelves to store bowls, pots and dishes. You can add more shelves beside the windows and in tiny hooks. Shelves can be designed in layers. You can use them to hold cups, spice containers and other things that would usually clutter the cabinets.

IV. Compartmentalize drawers
Your lower cabinets should come with drawers. If they don’t, then create some shelves under the sink. If you have drawers, you can optimize them by using cardboards or small plywoods. That way you can use one drawer to store so many items without mixing them up.

V. Odd spaces
Use the sides of your cabinets as a rack holder for cooking spoons or a small basket holder which you can use to hold spoons or spice jars. Another odd place is to hang your pots from the ceiling to save space on the ground. Create stations like the tea nook or coffee cart to have your favorite things in one place.
