PROBLEM: I have deep cupboards in my kitchen and the shelves don’t pull out. It is impossible for me to get to the things in the middle and back of the shelves.

SOLUTION: Put a tray, baking pan, plastic bin, or cardboard box on the shelf, which can act like a pull out shelf. You can slide the bin part way out or take it all the way out in order to access what you need. The space behind the bin can be used for taller things that are less often used and the area beside the bin can be
lined with the same item so you know exactly what is there.

HINT: You might want to put felt strips on the bottom of the container so that as you slide it in and out it doesn’t scratch the shelf.
