So, you’re running a little short on countertop space? Fear not! This handy kitchen hack can multiply your kitchen workspace with ease. While the cutting board shown here is on the small side, this hack works best with a rectangular board that fits fairly evenly over one of your drawers.

Once your cutting board is in place, enjoy your newly expanded countertop, whether its for actual cutting, or just additional space to set things on.
