Here are some quick and very efficient kitchen organization tips that will make your life easier and your time in the kitchen pleasurable.
How to keep your kitchen looking neat and orderly?
- Start from scratch
When you want to organize your entire kitchen, it is always best to start from scratch. This way you will know what you actually have, what you need and what you can discard. You won’t have to repeat this step always just may be once every few months.
Start by emptying all the cabinets and kitchen drawers (cupboards). Segregate everything that you have in to what you need and what you don’t. All those soiled cupcake moulds and chipped glasses have been taking too much unnecessary space in your kitchen. You may have special memories attached to some of your cups and plates but if you know in your heart that you are never going to use them again, it is best to get over them.
- Group similar items
Group all your kitchen ware as per your convenience. Stack up all those utensils that you seldom use into one pile and arrange them at the back. Keep all your regular use utensils in the front. This will save you a lot of time when you are serving and cooking.
- Label all containers
Labeling your containers with all your spices and herbs is the best way to save time. Also use clear containers. This will help you see if there is anything that is spoiling and needs to be thrown away.
- Keep the pots and lids together
When keeping all your cooking utensils, make sure that you keep the pots and lids together. This will save you the time and effort needed to look around for the lid when you have to make a quick meal.
- Use the spaces wisely
You might have a very small kitchen or a large one but you will always fall short on space if you do not use the walls and the space under the cabinets or drawers. Use this space optimally for hanging your cups or spoons.
