How cluttered is your kitchen? Does it always look like a storm is blown through? Do you have a hard time getting your family on board with organization? It’s tough to break old habits but once you establish a new organization order then there should be no excuse. The key to organization is that everything has its place. Your goal is to establish that place and then use it. Here are some helpful tips to help for better kitchen organization:
Pull Everything Out
To get organized you’re going to have to pull everything down from the cabinets and out of the drawers. Once you’ve clean those spaces, you can sort through all the stuff that is now piled up in your kitchen and decide what can stay and what should go.
This is your chance to organize cabinets into categories. You may already have designated areas for dishes, glasses, pots and pans but how many random items turn up at the same spaces? There’s nothing wrong with having a “miscellaneous” shelf but just let it be one.
In your pantry cabinets, you should also organize by type of food. Put can goods on one shelf and dry goods on another so that you can always with a glance know exactly what you have in stock. There are plenty of terrific spice racks that you can incorporate inside a cabinet so that all of your spices are neatly organized.
On the kitchen countertop, you should only have those appliances that are used daily. If you have a lot of recipes clipped out of magazines, then they should go in a binder inside plastic sleeves. Every time you come back to the grocery store you should clean out your refrigerator of any expired food or leftovers that are going to be eaten.
As for all your random Tupperware containers, you should get a single plastic bin large enough to hold all of them. This should be the only space where the lids and containers go. It’s too easy to lose these just like losing socks in the dryer!
