So I’m starting a new thing over here – one day per week, I’ll talk about things that make my life easier.  And maybe, you’ll find benefit in them, too.  :)

I love Ikea – this is not in question.  And I’m always looking for ways to make my kitchen more “me-friendly” and easy to navigate for the whole family.

That said, when I was at Ikea last week, I picked up a roll of shelf-liner, or as they call it, drawer liner.  I was getting frustrated with the lightweight green bumpy stuff in the cabinets and how it shifted when we put dishes away.  The bonus was that the stuff at Ikea is only $3.99 per roll.

I picked some up and measured the cabinet-space when I got home – and was absolutely *delighted* to find that it not only works well, but it looks really nice, too.  It’s clear and makes the cabinets look much more … professional? or something … than they did before.  It’s smooth on one side and has raised bumps on the other (I put the bumpy-side up) and seems as though it will be easy to wipe down when crumbs get in there (as they inevitably do).

It comes in a roll and has a little bit of memory, but it’s easy to cut with scissors and make your shelves and drawers that much more organized than

they were before. 

What can you not live without in your kitchen?  Is there anything that makes your kitchen that much more organized than before?
