It's a variation of a tool that we use in our pantry cabinets, too.

One of the best gadgets I came across in 2017 is a tool that doubled the space in my kitchen by adding a low-height shelf in my cabinets. The adjustable shelf can be found for just $10 (like this one from Bed, Bath, and Beyond), and has hundreds of positive reviews from shoppers online. I thought I had totally maxed out my cabinet space, until I stumbled upon a new adjustable shelf that’s designed for the cabinet underneath your sink.

The team at Apartment Therapy knows the cabinet under your sink often becomes a catch-all for things like rolls of paper towels, trash bags, and random cleaning supplies. So they found an adjustable shelving unit that can help corral those oft-overlooked items.

Most kitchen sinks have exposed piping (especially if you have a garbage disposal.) That’s why you wouldn't be able to use a freestanding cabinet shelf. However, this $20 adjustable gadget has two shelves, and is designed to fit around any existing piping.
