10 containers to reduce counter clutter

How come our kitchen countertops always seem to be a magnet for clutter?

Groceries, piles of mail and kitchen utensils always seem to find their way to my counters. Frankly, organizing isn't something I'm good at. But I'm working on it. Sometimes you just need the right tools for the job.

Today I collected some useful items to reduce kitchen clutter.

I love kitchen utensil holders because they are both decorative and functional. I am in favor of white stoneware with wooden utensils.

Going vertical and using wall space is another way to give yourself more storage space. This magnetic knife strip and tool holder can keep everyday objects within arm's length.

One thing I do in my small kitchen is try to make ordinary things look more decorative so that I can keep them in plain sight. I especially love this beautiful set of oil and vinegar cruets.
