Storing Everyday Kitchen Items

I'll be the first to say that I'm not one who should be giving out organizational advice (I could use a professional assistant in my scrapbook room specifically). But there are a couple of little tricks I use in my kitchen that I'd like to share today...
This little basket is right next to my sink. Clean towels at my fingertips--and a fun way to display them. The basket is from Longaberger.
I bake something almost daily, so my rolling pins and spatulas have to be nearby. I got these old heavy crocks off of ebay a couple years back and I love them.

Please feel free to share your kitchen storage ideas--I'd love to hear them too!

Have a great day all!

I use something similar..I use a carousel with different compartments that I can use for different spoons, spatulas, and even small knives. I believe I bought it through Pamper Chef. I know that I just absolutely love the way I can turn it and find exactly what I need.

i use a crock and a beautiful red glazed flower pot for my frequently used utensils. i also use my longaberger silverware server for pens, pencils, scissors, calc. and a pad of paper. when we have a party, i just dump it out and then i know it's time to go thru it. i also use a small longab. for crayons and one for markers. the kids can grab whatever basket they need and they look nice on my counter!
