I don't like kitchen clutter but it often seems like it is something that just happens. But one thing that I think at least helps make my kitchen counters not look so cluttered is nicer containers for the things that need to be sitting out. Here are a few of my containers....
The olive oil bottle has dish soap in it. The small little shaker in the front on the right that you often see at pizza places with peppers in it - has baking soda in it. I clean with it quite a bit so I shaking it on to a surfaces with this bottle is quick and easy. The sugar pour bottle on the left is dishwasher detergent. I really like having it in this bottle because I don't use as much as it comes out more slowly then the box it comes in.
I got the 2 smaller bottles in the front from Dollar Tree. But I have seen smaller olive oil bottles at Dollar Tree and Big Lots.
* As pointed out in the comments that these could be mistaken for sugar. If you, have kids or those in your household that you feel would, easy solution would be to label them. We have a label maker that I use all the time to label shelves and such and I can see using that on these as well but in our house we both know what is in them and it wouldn't be mistaken for anything other then what is in them.
