Expandable Over The Sink Shelf--got a bamboo version of this. Really makes a big different in the kitchen and in the small space we have. Wish I had purchased a prettier one---like this one--but what I got gets the job done. Plus, we have a small pull-out basket for sponges and such with ours, so I can't complain THAT much!
Keeping The Litter Box Area Clean by buying rubber garage tiles at a home improvement store and placing them under the litter box. The litter gets trapped in the holes and not tracked all over the house! Works better than the litter-trapping mats that are sold in pet stores!
