You spend a lot of time in your kitchen; why not make it work more efficiently for you? An organized kitchen allows you to move freely and easily, with no wasted space. Take a look at your kitchen. Is it working for you? Are you utilizing your space efficiently? If not, follow these simple steps for an organized kitchen that works for you, not against you.
Cabinets offer plenty of storage for all your pots, pans, and kitchen necessities. However, keeping them organized is a hassle. Pots scattered everywhere, no matching lids in sight, things stacked on top of each other, an overall mess. Sound familiar? Don’t fret, though! We have multiple options to keep your cabinets clutter-free. First, try rearranging your cupboards by grouping similar objects. This means your plates should be in a cabinet, your glasses, mugs, cups in a separate one, etc. Make sure to put frequently used things at lower levels! Then, to keep your bottom cabinets organized, we recommend using kitchenware dividers to separate your pots and pans from their corresponding lids. Looking for extra cabinet space? Try using a baker’s rack for your pots and pans! We suggest a tension rod and baskets for the cabinets under your sink to keep all of your cleaning supplies organized.
The snack space, the rice keeper, the collector of plastic bags, the pantry. It’s no secret that the pantry is the heart of the kitchen. Like the heart, it tends to hold a lot. We suggest clearing out your pantry first. Check all the “use by” dates, donate all the good items that you’d like to get rid of to a local food bank, and for the things you want to keep, we have a few ways of organizing them. For dry goods, we encourage the use of stackable airtight containers. These are great to keep everything easily accessible, and the stackable feature clears up space in your pantry. Another tip to increase storage space in your pantry is to utilize an over-the-door hanging organizer for small snacks! And for those pesky plastic bags, try a grocery bag holder!
Remember where you put those leftovers? No worries, you’re about to get a fresh start! First, you’ll want to empty your refrigerator. That’s right, throw away all those long-forgotten meals. To keep your refrigerator organized, try grouping liked items and labeled bins. You’ll never have to wonder where you put that yogurt you swore you bought! Bonus tip for the freezer, add magazine holders for instant freezer shelves!
We’ve all heard the legend of the junk drawer. However, your drawers don’t need to look that way! Again, try grouping like items together. Baking and cooking utensils should be together, and knives and sharp objects should be together in a separate drawer. Use dividers for your eating utensils and Tupperware drawer.
