This $20 Amazon Find Creates Shelf Space Out of Thin Air (No Drilling Needed!)
The older you get, the more you realize that storage space is a luxury. In an ideal world, you wouldn’t have to incorporate a ton of baskets, bins, and hanging organizers into your home because it would have enough of its own built-in shelves and expansive closets. But alas, because this is Apartment Therapy, we know you probably don’t have as much open shelving at your disposal as you’d like. Instead, your best bet is to try and expand what storage space you already have, which is fortunately not hard to do. There’s a simple solution on Amazon that can significantly increase — and potentially even double — the size of your pantry, linen closet, or spice cabinet. These under shelf baskets by SimpleHouseware eliminate dead space and ensure that wherever you put them, no square inch goes unused. And right now, you can buy a set of two for 20 percent off!
With your purchase of these bronze or white shelf baskets, no guesswork or tricky assembly is required. Each basket has long hooks that allow it to slide onto flat surfaces in seconds — no hardware necessary. The best part is, these ingenious organizers can serve a variety of different spaces, whether that’s the garage, kitchen, or laundry room. “My cabinet has been a hot mess for a decade,” one reviewer wrote in reference to their plastic wrap and foil storage. “We often overbuy because we think we’re out, when it’s really just buried beneath the pile of roll boxes. I was able to set these up and organize the cabinet in about 15 minutes.” Other customers also note how sturdy the makeshift drawers are, as well as how easy it is to slide them out and find exactly what they’re looking for. Regardless of the weight they hold, the baskets won’t cause any damage to your shelves when you pull on them.
Although you receive two baskets with one purchase, each one measures more than one foot in width and nearly the same amount in length. Thus, it can hold plenty of items, from pantry snacks to office supplies. And whereas some organizers can look dowdy and cheap, the simple and durable design of these metal baskets proves unobtrusive and highly practical. With all these amazing features for such a reasonable price, it won’t be long before you realize you need these baskets in every room.
