A few weeks ago I shared how to clear the clutter, and I hope I inspired you to get control and start getting organized.
In most homes, the kitchen is the busiest room, in fact, it's grand central station in my home so I have decided to start with my kitchen.
5 easy tips for organizing your kitchen
1. Use containers for Functional Storage
Baskets and colorful bins are a great way to store smaller loose items like packages of seasonings, boxes of jello, packaged food, etc.
They are also great for collecting mail, and all of the loose “stuff” that gets left on our counter top. You can hang them on the wall, place them in the cupboards, and even put them out on the counter top. You can find decorative baskets and containers that will give your kitchen a look stylish.
~ Over the door shoe holders are also a great way to organize your pantries. Store your spices, small food packages, and utensils in each pocket to clear up space for larger food items.
2. Save Space with Hooks and Rods
Free up cabinet space by hanging a tension rod inside the cupboard to hang cleaning spray bottles from. This will leave the cabinet open for more kitchen products to be stored.
Decorative hooks like 3M hooks that stick to a surface can come in handy and serve many purposes in the kitchen. Try hanging them inside a cabinet door to hang your pot holders and larger utensils on.
3. Maximize Space by Using the Inside of Cabinet Doors
Inside cabinet doors are a great place to hang calendars, wipe off boards, or even cork boards! The inside of cabinet doors are often neglected but can be a valuable space for small kitchens.
4. Give Unruly Plastic Lids Order with a Dish Drainer
Did you know dish drainers are not only used for drying dishes? Try using them to store your lids to your pots and pans and your plastic Tupperware lids. Plastic container lids are easily stacked and organized. Try organizing them by size and shape.
5. Consistency is the Key to a Well Organized Kitchen
There are many tips and tricks to keeping an organized kitchen. However the most important one is to be consistent. If everything has a home, it's a lot easier to stay organized.
