Your kitchen is the workhorse of the home, and the items you store in it — serving pieces, utensils, and all that cookware — are among the toughest things in the whole place because they have to stand up to daily use.

And even though these items are super-durable, if you store them incorrectly, you could potentially damage them (or, at the very least, waste space you could be using for something else).
Here are five kitchen items you may be storing the wrong way.

1. Knives
If you, like me, throw your knives into a utensil drawer, you're doing it wrong. First of all, it's kind of dangerous, because you can cut yourself sticking your hand into a tangled pile of knife blades. But it's also bad for your knives: Every time a blade hits something that's not food — like another knife blade or even the edge of a knife block — it can nick it up. Instead, store them along magnetic strips, inside drawer inserts, or by carefully inserting them into a knife block.

2. Cookie sheets
Oh, are you still stacking your cookie sheets in a messy pile? Don't. The best way to store these babies is vertical, not horizontally. And you've got options: You can use tension rods to get them upright, try a file folder-style divider, or even try a DIY drawer for them. The point is, start thinking vertically.
