Do you spend a lot of time looking for things in your kitchen? It’s not just about finding the perfect snack but the perfect utensil or pot needed for whatever you’re cooking. Often when you do find that item, it is buried under a lot of other utensils or pots which means rearranging everything to get to what you need. A better approach would be to organize your kitchen. Here are some smarts ways to get that accomplished.
Store Food in the Fridge Properly
Did you know that you should keep your dairy on the upper shelf of your fridge? That’s’ because the temperatures are the most constant. Your meat should always go on the bottom in case there is any accidental leakage. Much easier to clean up one shelf than all the shelves. Take the time to clear out all the expired foods and old condiments. Once everything is cleaned out, get into the habit of grouping things together on inside shelf doors. You can also use plastic containers as a kind of makeshift drawer. It is easy to slide out the container to find a jar than constantly rearranging those jars.
Maximize Pantry Space
Some kitchens have separate pantry rooms while others utilize pantry cabinets. In either scenario, you want to make things easy to reach and find. You can incorporate Lazy Susans and more clear storage containers to hold all your canned goods, spices and packages. The back a pantry door is a good spot for one of those over-the-door shoe holders. Those can now hold favorite family snacks, seasoning mixes and a lot more.
Create Kitchen Work Zones
When creating a work zone for the kitchen think triangle. The three points are fridge, oven and sink. Keeping what you need to cook close to those zones will help with the process. You don’t want dishes near the stove or pots next to the sink. The ultimate goal would be able to get what you need blindfolded!
