Organize Your Kitchen Without Clutter

The best way to prepare any meal is to get organized. You have a recipe, ingredients and all your cooking utensils. It helps if you have everything prepped and ready to mix laid out on the counter. As you’re finished with a bowl or spoon, you should wash it and put it in the dishwasher. The meal will come together and you’ll have a minimum amount to clean. What prevents that kind of smooth operation is a lot of clutter. You could spend more time looking for the right pot or knife than you do with chopping up your veggies. This is why you need to organize your kitchen without clutter.

The best approach for getting rid of kitchen clutter is to take every item out of every cabinet and drawer. It’s not just about taking stuff out, cleaning the area and putting it all back in but, instead, taking stock of what you’ve got. You’re sure to find that there is a lot you can get rid of. Anything you have used in at least a year is probably something that is not ever gone to be used. Set those things aside.

With everything empty, you have the opportunity to reorganize by grouping similar objects together. It’s amazing how the lids for containers end up in one cabinet and the actually containers in another. All those lose containers and lids should be placed in a single container. That’s where they’ll “live” from now on.

As for your pots and pans, you might need to find alternative storage methods. You could use a hanging pot/pan rack to put those items that you use the most within reach. The pot lids can be put on hooks that are placed on the inside of a cabinet door.

All your pantry items should also be put in organized group so you can see at glance what you have and what you need. Canned goods on one shelf, packaged goods on another.

After all this organizing, you could be left with a large pile of things to discard. You’ll also have a lot more storage space. This is when you bring in Junk King Chattanooga.

Refresh Compost Pile

If you don’t have a compost pile, then this is the year to start one. It’s the perfect place to put all your kitchen scraps and provide a nutrient rich source of fertilizer for your plants. There are easy DIY compost instructions you can find online.

Divide Perennials

You need to assess your current garden plot to see if any plant has outgrown the area. Think about dividing the perennials and planting them in different areas or containers. You don’t want to overcrowd your plants.

Consider New Flowers

You know what works in your garden. Now is the time to expand the possibilities and add in some new flowers. Think about color and growth patterns when considering what to plant. You can go for a mix and match kind of variety or sections of uniformity.

Fertilize

A soil testing kick will let you know what’s missing from your dirt. Whatever that is, you can probably find a good fertilizer or use your compost to replace those missing nutrients. Once you’ve treated your soil and given it a few days to acclimate, you’ll be ready for planting.

Use a Garden Planner
