This one is my favorite. All you need to do is glue some small magnets to the lid of a small spice jar, write the name of the spice onto the bottom of the jar (so you know what it is), then stick it to your fridge. It looks fun and is highly useful!

I kicked myself for thinking about this one sooner! Basically, we can apply the 20/80 principle here.

We all use about 20% of item about 80% of the time, so why not follow this rule and put the most used things easily to hand.

I.e. we use plates & bowls a lot, so put them where they are easy to get!
