Small Kitchen Storage Hack


They say the kitchen is the lifeblood of a home but what do you do when your kitchen is 3 feet long and can barely fit 2 people?

Living in New York City, space is at a huge premium and my galley kitchen is incredibly tiny! It’s really only got enough room for the appliances and I’m always scrabbling for counter space.





We are fortunate to have a washer and dryer in the apartment… but it’s in the kitchen base cabinets so I don’t have much storage for actual groceries or even basic necessities like paper towels, detergent, cleaning supplies, etc.

For a while, I was cramming everything (pantry items, cleaning supplies, bathroom supplies and laundry supplies in my one hall closet… along with my shoes, coats, brooms etc.

It was one jumbled mess and probably not very sanitary. I recently discovered Amazon Dash Buttons and they have been a game changer for small space living!




What Are Amazon Dash Buttons

Amazon Dash Buttons are WiFi connected devices for grocery, beverage and common household essentials.

Each button is paired with a specific product (there are over 250 Amazon Dash Buttons to choose from) and when you’re low on supplies, you just press your button and it will reorder the item through your Amazon account.





Brands that have an Amazon Dash Button:

A lot of brands participate in Amazon Dash’s program. Some of the more common household brands include:

  • Bounty
  • Tide
  • Charmin
  • Puff’s
  • Glad
  • Clorox
  • Cascade
  • Gatorade
  • Maxwell House
  • smartwater
  • Izze
  • Larabar
  • Olay
  • Gillette
  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Colgate
  • Playtex
  • L’Oreal
  • Gerber
  • Wellness
  • Finish
  • Optimum Nutrition
  • Greenies
  • Hefty
  • Ziploc
  • Ice Breakers
  • Digestive Advantage
  • Mrs. Meyers

… and more are constantly being added!





To use, you need an Amazon prime account (you can sign up for a 30-day free Prime trial here – items ship free). Anytime I notice I’m low, I press the Amazon Dash Button and the item arrives right to my doorstep.

I have buttons for my coffee grounds, laundry detergent and paper towels – things I am always running out of and tend to buy in bulk, but are heavy and space-consuming to store.

Every time an order is placed, you’ll see a notification in your Amazon account. The buttons respond only on the first press so until the order has shipped and arrived, accidental additional presses won’t result in more orders.
