YouTube personality Drew Scott is a passionate DIY fan who has his own home goods store, Lone Fox, along with a million followers on TikTok.

In a recent video, Scott revealed the super-easy techniques he uses to keep his kitchen neat and organized.

Scott advised that “life-saving kitchen tricks are a must.”

First, show a way to store measuring spoons and cups. As any home cook knows, “nesting” tools are great in theory, but they inevitably lead to clutter in your drawers once you’ve unfurled inside.

“Just hit two command hooks on the back side of one of your closet doors,” Scott explained.

“Slip all of your measuring spoons into the bottom of these command hooks, and make another row on top for your measuring cups.”

You’ll never find yourself using a spoon to knock a ½ cup or a teaspoon off the stairs again.

Scott explained, “All you have to do is open and close this when you want to get one.

You can buy sets of command hooks online and in the store with different fixtures, but an investment of $4 will get you enough out of the average kitchen.

Scott also showed off another clever purchase, which you can secure at Walmart or Target for about $30.

“If I needed some extra storage, I got an over-the-toilet storage organizer for the bathroom, but I actually put it on top of my trash,” he explained.

Sturdy wire shelves were the perfect height to allow access to Scott’s trash, while providing more storage around and over the area.

“It made a lot more storage space for things that wouldn’t fit in my little apartment’s drawers, like this air fryer or any of these baskets with cleaning supplies,” Scott explained.

But one thing was noticeably absent on the shelves around the trash: trash bags. That’s because Scott keeps them in a totally genius hiding spot.

“Let’s make our trash bag dispenser,” Scott said.

He pulled a roll of trash bags from their original bin and slipped the entire roll through the paper towel roll holder.

You can try the trick at home, too, and keep a tangle of trash bags out of your way.

“Just ride on the closet door from the inside, and you’re good to go,” Scott said.

If you’re having any trouble getting the bag roll on the “dispenser” arm, never fear. Scott explained what to do in a comment.

“Pull one bag out from the middle,” he advised. “Just move your fingers in there and pull one out and it’ll let you move it!”

Wall-mounted mounts can be found for about $8 at hardware and home stores, or you can try an existing distributor for less.

Using these three tips is a small investment that will save you time, energy, and frustration in the long run.
