PUT A LID ON IT!
Hanging pot racks can be a pain in the neck and make spaces look much smaller than they are (and they obstruct views to guests, kids, etc.) so I often like to use a wall-hung rack instead. One of my favorite things to do is grab a stainless steel towel rack and use s hooks from the home depot to hang pots and pans from it.
I recently wrote about this tip, to securely store lids by attaching smaller towel bars to the inside of cabinet doors and resting the lids between the bar and door. Works wonders and costs little!
SPICE IT UP:
If you don't have a spice drawer or a drawer big enough to incorporate a spice rack, I like to take the stepped expandable shelf unit and place it in a cabinet near the stove and place my spices on it. This is also great for glass organization in a cupboard so you can see all glasses.
While normally used for standing plates upright, I like to place pegged wooden plate organizers in cabinets for pots and pans and use them to keep lids Upright and closest to the pots they belong to.
