My husband and I moved into an RV last summer and sold or gave away 80% of our belongings. I am looking for ways to make the most of our space for the 20% we kept. It's not that we're out of room, but I feel like I am not doing this in an optimal fashion. [more inside]

How can we store our kitchen sink dishwashing sponge to prevent it being eaten by our cat? Rupert
, after years of ignoring it, has recently decided that the sponge is a fun thing to shred and nibble on. Currently it sits on top of the sink edge on top of a spiky plastic soap saver thingy so it can dry. How can we store it so that it will be (a) easily accessible to humans, (b) not accessible to Rupert, and (c) able to air-dry? I'm imagining something like this
with a flap on top, for instance.

I have way too little storage space in my kitchen, and am looking to get something like this
. Are there any better options available to me for around $100-$200? What kind of standalone shelving do you use in your home?

I want to mount narrow shelves at the back of my kitchen counters, along the top of the backsplash. I have not been able to find anything suitable to match the dark decor.
I have black laminate counters with dark cherry-finish wood cabinets. All the hardware in our house is oil-rubbed bronze. See PHOTOS. [more inside]

I want to hang stemware upside down under a shelf in my kitchen, but it isn't a deep enough shelf for the racks I've used before, or really for more than one glass. What can I use? Hanging them in a track that runs lengthwise under the shelf is an option. Does that track exist?

Which way should you store your drinking glasses in a cupboard? Should they be stored right side up so the lip isn't contaminated by the surface? Or, should they be stored up side down to prevent dust from getting into the cup?

We want to hang our pots and pans from the HVAC ductwork on our kitchen. We're thinking strong magnetic hooks. [mi] [more inside]
