In the hustle and bustle of daily life, maintaining an organized kitchen can often be a challenging task.

One area of kitchen organization that tends to be particularly troublesome is the storage of essential kitchen items like plastic wrap, food storage bags, and foil.

The unraveling rolls and misplaced wrap and zip top storage bag boxes can turn into a chaotic mess if not stored properly.

Fortunately, there are clever, creative and no-brainer solutions to keep your kitchen in order.

In this blog post, we’ll explore 10 different ways to organize and store plastic wrap, food storage bags, and rolls of aluminum foil efficiently.

Dedicating an entire kitchen drawer just for food wraps and storage bags will give you a leg up on fully organizing this area of any kitchen in the best way.

Maximize your drawer space by using drawer dividers to create dedicated sections for plastic wrap, baggies, and tin foil.

The thinner, the better, leaving more room for your items.
