Under our kitchen sink was a serious mess.  I couldn't find anything and the small stuff was taking up just as much space as the big stuff.

For about $10 I built this amazingly simple organizer that turned frusturation into storage freedom!

Watch and see in my video tutorial:

This is an easy build that only requires a drill and saw, and is very adjustable in size - so you can get that custom, perfect fit look!
