Ready To Get Organized In Your Kitchen

Pull Everything Out

This is the part that will be the most time consuming. Everything needs to come out of everywhere. Clear the dining room table and spread out everything in your cabinets and drawers. Once it is all out, you can being sorting through the things you use and the things you’ll never use. Now you know what goes back into the kitchen.

Utilize Open Space

The doors of cabinets are a good place to utilize for storage. Any container store will have a kitchen section with plenty of options for this space. Of course, you could just go simple and put hooks up for things like potholders and utensils.

Group Like Items

Your pots and pans need to be together and they should be close to the stove. Storage items should be together by the fridge. Dishes and glasses go by the sink. Those are the three main zones of your kitchen and what you’re keeping in those zones should reflect how those zones are used.

Nothing Scattered

Everything needs to have a place even if it is the rubber bands in your junk drawer. Flatware holder work for kitchen utensils. Some plastic containers can be arranged in a draw to hold all those loose random items. It’s all about finding a spot for everything. Even you take out menus should be gathered into a folder or binder.
