Too many bake trays, not enough baking going on?
Need a way to keep the wet shoes and boots at the door from ruining your floor?
Tired of trying to coral and contain the many little spice jars and sticky bottles of oil and vinegar in the cupboard?
Let's rethink the possible uses of those extra baking trays...
1. Try using baking trays or pans as cabinet organizers.
Gather up those small items such as small spice jars, pouches and small bottles and place them in a spare baking pan. Then treat it as a drawer, carefully sliding it in and out of the cabinet when you need to get items stored near the back. You can also use small to medium sized baskets if you have those instead. What ever you use the beauty of using baking pans or leak proof baskets is that it will catch drips and small spills thus making clean up a lot easier. Tip: For taller glass bottles use deeper trays.
2. Give your old baking pans the 'boot'.
Rectangular baking sheets and pans can make wonderful receptacles' for wet boots and shoes. Again the pan or sheet can help catch muck from the street and when it's dry the pans can be washed and replaced easily. If they fit you can even slide them into existing cubbyholes at the doorway, taking their contents out of the way.
