Wall space: Knife Strip
Elsie Callender, author of “Your Simple Home Handbook,” lives in a 600-square-foot cabin with a kitchen that’s about 9 feet long.
One of her favorite kitchen space-savers is a magnetic knife strip.
For well under $20, this simple organizing device can free up drawer space while preventing knives from premature dulling caused by knocking against other objects in drawers. The strip also can be used to store other types of utensils made from magnetic metal.
