Here are a few kitchen/closet hacks to try out for when you finally realize your kitchen can be used for things besides cooking.
1) Jewelry hidden in a bowl.
One of my favorite ways to use my kitchen for the greater fashion good is keeping a bowl in my pantry that holds my everyday jewelry. I have to pass my kitchen in order to leave my place, so having that secret stash of jewels is a great way to remind me not to leave without my watch. It's also a great hack to have when on your way out, you realize you have on one too many bangles. As Coco Chanel taught us, always remove one accessory before leaving the house!
2) Off-season shoes in your dishwasher.
I never use my dishwasher. Literally, never, and if you have one in your tiny NYC place, I doubt you do either.
