6 Simple Kitchen Hacks You Should Try

Get tidy and creative! There are a few simple kitchen hacks you should test out on your own at home to clean up clutter and recycle old items.

1. Get rid of kitchen clutter on counter tops. Use a wire mesh magazine file and keep plastic bags and foil stored under the sink. You can pick one of these up at Staples, but you may just have an extra one laying around somewhere, which is very handy.

2 .Whether you're hosting a party, or just trying to drink more water, fill trays up with water, lemon slices, or whatever fruit you enjoy. Let them freeze, and as the cube defrosts in your cup, your water will be extra refreshing!

4. Instead of going out to by more containers for potted plants, you can recycle used cans. You can even get a bit creative with some paint to dress them up a bit.

5. Or use cans to create innovative cutlery holders for your next dinner party.

6. For those burnt out lightbulbs...Well, here's a crafty way to light up the home: Use them as flower holders!
