how do I give this kitchen more storage, it's quite small, I'm on a pretty tight budget so any ideas would be helpful :)

Do you have wasted space in your lower two corners? Put microwave over the stove and you gain space where it had been. Maybe add narrow shelves or storage in front of peninsula if it wouldn't t crowd your table.

there are 2 corner cupboards, with quite a bit of room in them, there is really no pantry so most of the our dry goods go in them and some cookware

Maybe add a tall hutch where your current buffet is and most of your dishes and cutlery could go there.

could you post a picture of the other side of dining area please? short square baskets could be on top of cabinets for items not used often.

Two ways to take advantage of that airspace above your countertop peninsula -- the hanging pot rack idea is definitely the less expensive of the two. You can pick them up at Ikea for about $20 or you can spend a little more shopping around online. Just be sure to anchor it securely (don't use plant hanging hooks, haha). I have the same type of kitchen/dining layout as you and I'm going to build a shelving unit -- eventually, haha. Good luck!

Agree with Patricia Kent that a narrow long chest on the back of the peninsula would give you added storage. Also, there have been many recent threads and ideabooks about de-cluttering... Perhaps getting rid of some kitchen items, or for seldom used items, storing them in a cellar or garage.
