Hidden Cork Boards in Your Kitchen

Loving this concept from Young House Love…I love it because I don’t have a whole lot of counter space in my kitchen. This would be a great way for me (and you) to keep that small stack of recipes, meal ideas, shopping list and coupons off of your counters and out of the way.

This would work in just about anyone’s kitchen and would only cost a few dollars to purchase the cork boards and pins. I do believe I’ll pick some up next time I’m out and about on errands!

How do you keep the papers from piling up in your kitchen?!

I have a filing box in my kitchen with files like “to do this week”, “pending” (for all those invites that are coming up that you need to save for addresses, etc), “personal” file for each member of the house, “school” papers for each child, “coupons”, “gift cards”, “meal plan” etc. Basically make a file for all the things that get stacked up. Really helps with clutter and organization.

Even if you don’t use the cork boards for coupons and notes, it looks nicer than leaving it plain.

This is a great ides for people who have cupboards with no windows. Most of my kitchen cupboards have windows so I wouldn’t be able to do this. Thanks for sharing! Your ideas are so helpful!!!

Be careful – I used similar ones from Staples and the boards fell off and the stickies were impossible to get off!

Wow, this is really clever! It will surely help keep the mess and clutter away, which is often found in a kitchen. Is there a specific reason you use them in your kitchen? Would love to hear your thoughts!
