Kitchen Organizational Tips
One of the first things to do is to organize based on different types of kitchen items. For example, create a zone for storage containers, cleaning supplies, pots, pans, and utensils. If you have space, try devoting a corner of your kitchen cabinet to baking and stock it with cookie sheets, loaf pans, flour, sugar, and other necessities.
Essentials In Front
What do you use most in your kitchen? Things like towels, spices, and sponges should be front and center. Think also about what appliances you use regularly and keep the most important ones on the counter. Stash what you don’t use often away, giving you extra counter space.
Corral Your Plastic Bags
Plastic bags can build up quickly! However, if you like to reuse or recycle them, you’ll need a place to store them. Instead of stuffing them in a closet, try getting a mounted plastic bag dispenser. You can easily access the bags without taking up much space.
Get A Rolling Cart
If you have a tiny kitchen, consider investing in a rolling cart or island that can fit beside your fridge or stove. You can store things like olive oil or produce on the cart and move it in and out whenever you need it.
Purge The Pantry
Your pantry can build up over time, and if you’re ready to start fresh, it’s time to purge. Take a long look at your panty and donate extra things to a food pantry. Then, group food by category so that you know exactly what you have and can access it quickly.
Get A Dry-Erase Board
Mounting a dry-erase board on the inside of a door or on the fridge is a great way to stay organized. Keep track of your grocery lists and chores, as well as any other pressing info. You could also write a meal plan for the week.
Hang Things Up
If you don’t have much storage space in your kitchen, try installing hooks on the walls for cooking utensils or mugs. You could also invest in a hanging pot rack to add charm and free up room in your cupboards. You can even choose one with lighting.
