Robyn and I don't have much counter space in our kitchen.  At all.  It makes it difficult to do more than one or two things at once (and we can forget about having the oven and dishwasher open at the same time).  So sometimes, we have to get creative with how we use the space we have.  To that end, here's a trick I'm anxious to try...

The funny thing is, Robyn already does something like this to save counter space in the (also small) bathroom.  I can't believe we've never tried it in the kitchen!
