Practically every kitchen has the fridge next to the cabinets/counters. As such, a minimalist has an advantage!
Insert: "A minimalist's magnetic knife holder"...
Step 1: What You'll Need
Here's what you'll need:
1. A fridge
2. Round or square craft magnets
Step 2: Make a Rack / Strip
Align the craft magnets--so that they're touching--on the side of your fridge nearest where you will do your food prep. (Make sure it's at a comfortable height on the fridge for you to easily reach when needed.)
Stick your knives on the magnets.
So ingenious it hurts ;)
