Steps To Get Your Kitchen Organized

Are you ready to get your kitchen organized? Once completed, an organized kitchen will make cooking and cleaning go a lot smoother. Here are the steps to follow to get your kitchen organized:

Step 1: Take Everything Out

You need to see what you’re working with. That means everything has to come out of every drawer and every cabinet. You don’t want to do one cabinet at a time but all of them. You’ll probably need to spread things out on the dining room table to access what you have. Once everything is out, take advantage of the clear space by wiping down all the shelves and drawers. It will be as clean as it was when you moved in!

Step 2: Take Stock

Now that you can see everything, you get to decide what stays and goes. You might discover containers and gadgets that you forgot you had. That would be great if you can put them to use but if you have things you haven’t used in over a year, then it is a safe bet you can do without. The goal is to minimize what you have. That will help with organizing and with access.

Step 3: Improve Storage

With everything out, you have a good chance to utilize better storage devices. Hooks can go on the inside of a cabinet to hang pot lids. A magazine holder can be used for cutting boards. A Lazy Susan can be put in the pantry shelf for spices and canned goods. Big containers can be used to hold all those little containers. It is all about finding a home for every item in your kitchen. You might also discover that some things work better out of drawers or cabinets. Perhaps it is time to put up a pot rack on the wall or a magnetic strip for your knives.

Step 4: Put It Back

Now you get to put everything back but with a better sense of where it all is going. You want to try and keep your cooking utensils close to where you do your prep work. Once it is all back, give your family a “tour” of the new organized kitchen so they’ll also know where everything goes.

Now that the kitchen is organized, you might be left with a lot of stuff to get rid of. A smart move would be to turn all those household goods over to Junk King Hudson Valley. These are the junk removal pros that will not only clear all that unwanted clutter away but will see that is gets dropped off a charity.

Ready To Start A New Hobby?

Everyone should have a hobby. These are the activities that help us unwind after a long day at work. They’re also fun to share with friends and family members. Too often folks complain that they don’t have time for a hobby. That’s what is great about hobbies: You can spend a little or a lot of time on them. Are you ready to start a new hobby? Here are some terrific ideas:

Macramé

If you like working with knots and loops but on a slighter bigger scale than making lace, then macramé projects might be for you. All it takes are several yards of cotton cord and design plans you can download online. Before long, you can create holders for hanging all kinds of baskets and planters. You can also “shrink” your efforts to make mini-macramé bracelets. Those make wonderful gifts.

Painting by Numbers

You might have done paint by numbers pictures as a kid. Now that you’re grown up and know the benefit of staying within the line, you can probably take those paintings to the next level. These are very rewarding projects that can make for terrific decorations around the home or office. As for what you can paint by numbers, you’ll be amazed at just how many kits are available of scenic landscapes and copies of masterpieces.

Woodworking

If you’re not afraid of using a saw and other power tools, then perhaps you can take up woodworking. Once again, you’ll find all kinds of designs and templates online to help you build anything from a toy train set to a backyard picnic table.

Most hobbies don’t require a lot of space to take on but it helps to have a corner of the garage or spare room where you can store all your materials. This is where Junk King Hudson Valley can be a bit of a help. Junk King can dispatch a pair of dependable movers who can clear out clutter from any corner in your home. Just taking out an old sofa in the basement or the dresser in the garage will open up enough space to get you started. Begin your new hobby with space clearing help from Junk King Hudson Valley.

Make Junk Removal Work For You

In theory, city workers actually work for us. We pay their salaries through the taxes collected by the city and the state. In return, they provide a wide range of services from putting out fires to collecting garbage. But that doesn’t mean we can actually “boss” these workers around. They have to follow rules. That is very true when it comes to that garbage collecting. As much as we’d like to have the garbage trucks be on call to take away anything we want to get rid of, they could never do that because it would interfere with normal collections. That is why it is so challenging to get rid of oversized items like a coach or washing machine. The way to make junk removal work for you is to hire Junk King Hudson Valley from the start.

Junk King works on your terms and that starts with scheduling. Most often, they won’t tell you when they’re open. You’ll tell them when a pickup works best for your time and that’s when they’ll make it happen. On the day of your pickup, the Junk King crew will be in constant contact to keep you aware of their ETA.

The only limit Junk King puts on what they can take away is the same limits as the city: No hazardous materials. You won’t be able to get rid of propane tanks or cans of unused paint. But the Junk King crews can tell you the closet drop off for those kinds of objects. As for the rest, everything goes regardless of size or weight.

If you were to follow a Junk King crew around for a typical day you might see things going on the back of the truck like refrigerators, mattresses, sofas, bookshelves and the occasional hot tub. Yes, even something that big can make it onto the truck even if it has to be cut up into pieces (true story!).

To help with this entire junk removal process, Junk King will provide you with a pair of movers who are going to do all the lifting. Making junk removal easy is what Junk King Hudson Valley is all about. Put them to work today.
