'Vitamins and supplements... HOW CAN THEY LOOK GOOD ON THE COUNTER??' writes Emily on Instagram. On her blog (opens in new tab), she recommends the fridge magnetic shelf above.

Our kitchens are incredibly busy places, and they're rarely Instagram-ready. But we think this kitchen idea is great for keeping the space orderly so you've got plenty of room to cook.

The fridge magnetic shelf is designed for holding spices, condiments, bottles and so on, but works perfectly for storing vitamins. It stops a random pile of bottles ruining the aesthetic, and every time you head to the fridge for a snack, you'll be reminded to take them.

'I prefer to store vitamins out of the sunlight because you don't want any rays melting the gel on your omega-3 or collagen capsules,' comments Real Homes' Acting Editor Camille Dubuis-Welch. 'You'll end up with a bit of a gooey mess.'

Camille says if she was to keep them on show in a shady space, she'd would decanter them into labeled glass jars and store them on a wooden shelf for a nice apothecary-like finish.

There are endless other clever options you'd never have thought of when it comes to how to organize a kitchen, but anything that uses vertical space gets a big tick from us. Emily's vitamin storage hack keeps things feeling calm and tidy, and means you can clean your worktops without the faff of moving lots of little jars around.
