Have Your Drawers Work Twice as Hard
It's a two-for-the-price-of-one storage trick: Take a deep drawer, create a second level that rests above the original, add drawer slides so the new level moves across the top, then marvel at how easy it was to double your space without doing a major renovation. Follow Debbie Thompson's guide, on her blog Me and My DIY, to creating a two-tier drawer system, and then use it to streamline kitchen utensils or to keep cosmetics all in one place.

Thing to remember: Your drawer should be at least 3 and 3/4 inches tall to be able to accommodate a second sliding level.
