The best six-bucks I ever spent

Our kitchen island is the only logical place to store pots and pans, but it's just a mess under there.  It's one big open shelf with this huge venting tube running down the middle and conduit cables running everywhere (our cook top is in the island). Anyway, it's hard enough keeping the pots and pans stacked, but throw in the lids sliding around, and it's just chaos.

I took a trip to Ikea to check out their built-in kitchen storage solutions, but I was just window shopping.  On my way out, I spied a cheap plastic drying rack and decided to give it a shot. I can't believe what a difference $6 made!

Update:  Ikea doesn't seem to sell this drying rack anymore, but they sell something similar for $8.

we have those same pots and pans. and were forced to hang our pans and pots next to our cook top. Not cute.
