There might be a lot of clutter around your home but most of it is probably in the kitchen. Just as with a closet full of clutter, having a kitchen full of clutter makes it difficult to get things done. Just think of all the time you waste looking for stuff. The following are some effective ways to organize your kitchen. Once you set this up it will be easy to have everything find a new home.
Hang Your Cleaning Products
You probably store a lot of cleaning products under your sink. They can become a real hodgepodge of spray bottles. A small tension rod can be suspended under the cabinet that allows you to hang those bottles. That frees up space below for baskets to put the rest of your cleaning supplies. Those same tension rods can be set up in a cabinet vertically to make a kind of separator for cutting boards.
Use Magnets More
If you have a drawer full of loose knives, then you might want to hang up a magnetized strip on the wall. Those knives can then be attached to the magnet for easy access. There are also magnetic spice racks that can attach to your fridge or on strips inside of the cabinet. Remember, the goal is always to reach for something that you can easily spot as opposed to rummaging through things to get to what you need.
Utilize Wall Space
Your wall space in a kitchen is a perfect spot for organization. You can put up a painted piece of pegboard to hang pots and pans. You can also find decorative pieces of trellis to use with hooks for the same purpose. Even a hanging magazine rack can be adapted to hold a lot of your cookware.
Elevate Your Fridge
Your refrigerator will come with a limited amount of shelves and drawers. That doesn’t mean you can’t supplement that space with your own storage ideas. Small plastic bins are great for separating things like condiments, vegetables and fruit. If you can find ones with handles, then they are easy to pull out. You could also add a wire shelf or a Lazy Susan turntable.
Stack Your Bulk Items
Savvy grocery shoppers know that buying in bulk is always the best way to go. You can store your bulk items like sugar, flour and other dry goods in stackable plastic bins. Another good tip is to print out a conversion chart, get it laminated and then hang it on the inside of a cabinet door. That way it’s always handy for you to look up while you’re cooking.
Toss Out the Unwanted Appliances and Junk
