    I have an eat in kitchen, no dining room, so my hutch is all storage, and clutter. I could use this workstation to get some stuff out of the hutch, and to replace the microwave cart that is held together with a thousand screws. I also could use a new fridge! Everything is 20 years old!

    The problem with our kitchen is that the counters are too low and deep. By the time you put everything away, you have no idea what is down low and way in the back. Things get lost. There's also a rather large corner spot that is completely useless except for spider webs. You can get to anything down there, but its really alot of space not being used at all.

    I have too many beloved pans and not enough storage space in my small kitchen. Help!

    Dear Stacks and Stacks,

    My kitchen only has one cabinet section! There is a floor cabinet with a chopping block on it and one cabinet mounted above that. Because of the chopping block location, any food prep has to be done here. Basically, only one person can operate in the kitchen at a single time because you basically block access to most of the dishes etc.

    The kitchen is not small per se, there is a large open space where such a workstation as the one you are offering could go, but as a medical student I can't afford to buy it!

    I have issues with my party items and storage. Items like wine and other drink glasses, plus chargers and other serving pieces end up on my table with no wear to go. I have now taken over the guest room closet for additional storage but it's not the best solution. Still trying to get it done better.
    BTW – Love those totes!

    Storage? Not even familiar with the term in my kitchen. We have a galley kitchen. To make matters worse, the previous owner decided that attaching a huge long table covered in the same ugly formica as the countertops to one of the two long walls was genius. It's not. My solution (someday soon) will be to remove the obnoxious table, knock down the wall and install an island/breakfast bar with cabinets below it.
    Until then…you don't even wanna know.

    Big Cheerios boxes – the two pack size. Where do they go in a kitchen? We have resorted to storing such items in the basement. Meanwhile, the kitchen, while spacious (read that as airy), holds a meager load in its pantry space.
    You say that kitchen island is solid wood? Nice!

    We have a nice sized kitchen but there isn't enough counter top space for two of us to work in there at the same time! We have our "dream" remodel all planned but the economy has put that dream on hold for a lengthy time. The workstation would make waiting a lot easier. ;)

    My storage problem…not enough closets! And, too many bags. Where do I keep them all?

    I have a 1950s kitchen that is not very well laid out. This is too big for my kitchen but my sister could sure use it since she gave her kitchen table to her daughter who just graduated from college. I did see some other smaller ones on the website that might work for me.

    Our kitchen is horrible for clutter. We have no counter space at all and we have had to put a lot of our dinnerware into storage just because we don't have enough room. It could surely use a renovation in the future. With the economy so bad (especially here in Michigan) it is tough to fine the money to expand a kitchen (not such a high priority considering other things). This would help a lot for freeing up some counterspace allowing both my wife and I to work at the same time.

    My oldest son requires a gluten-free/casein-free diet. Because of this, we buy grains in 6-gallon buckets. I, then, grind the grains into flour to make his meals. The problem is that 6-gallon buckets don't fit in standard cabinets! Although I still have more buckets than I can store in my small kitchen, I have found a solution. My husband removed the shelving boards in our lower cabinets. Now, each cabinet can hold 4 of the 6-gallon buckets!

    We have a kitchen cabinet with a built in lazy susan. I use that area to store baking items (various sugars, flours, spices, etc.). If only someone made plastic storage ware that was pie-shaped so that space wasn't wasted! I find it frustrating opening the cabinet up and seeing all the unused area.
    I can see this cascading nicely as, with more room underneath to store, I would be able to move other things off the counter.

    What ideal space-saving solutions! Right now I'm trying to manage my shoes with limited closet space, and the stackable shoe storage could so easily fill a vertical space along the wall inside my closet. Thank you for the great suggestion.

    I am a military wife and the problem is that we move from base to base and there never seems to be a big enough kitchen for our necessities.
    The kitchen cart looks great. I think that it is very stylish and I know that I could get a lot of use out of it.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win it.
