'Brilliant' Kmart kitchen bin hack solves annoying problem

A woman’s incredibly clever solution to a common kitchen bin problem has gone viral online thanks to her ingenuity and a few bargain Kmart products.

Taking to a Kmart hacks Facebook group Emma revealed she had grown tired of her bins being on the floor in the kitchen as there was ‘no space’ for them, but in-cupboard bins often come with a hefty price tag, and that’s if you can find ones that fit.

“I snapped last week and cleaned out the only possible cupboard we have in the kitchen,” she wrote.

“It's less than 450mm wide and I've had trouble finding anything small enough or cheap enough to go in there.

“Kmart to the rescue.”

Using two $12 bins and placing them into a $29 sliding organiser from the popular store, she created her own slide-out bins.

“My problem is solved. Saved myself around $100,” Emma concluded, telling Yahoo Lifestyle she was quoted up to $300.
