If you’re like us, we were counting down the days until Get Organized with the Home Edit premiered on Netflix. Home organization isn’t solely about keeping your surroundings tidy, but providing peace of mind knowing there isn’t a mess to attend to. Taking care of our mental health is extra important during this challenging time,
As one of the most used rooms in every household, kitchens benefit from a good organization system. Between plates, glasses, silverware and food, taking the time to organize this important space will create a better flow.
To help you get started, here are our five tips to organize your kitchen and create a sustainable system for years to come.
Nothing Lazy About it
Incorporating a lazy Susan into your kitchen cabinets or on your countertops allows you to organize similar items neatly in one place. It also helps you find things much faster.
It’s okay to feel hang-ry
Hang pots and pans on the wall or from a ceiling organizer to free up space in your cabinets. It’ll be much easier to organize pans by size and use if you can see them! You won’t have to dig through a mess of metal every time you want to cook dinner.
This is an easy way to quickly organize your kitchen items. Whether it’s in your cabinets, drawers or refrigerator, keeping like items together makes it easier to grab what you need, when you need it. For example, store everyday dishes on a lower cabinet shelf and special use items on a higher shelf. Put each type of food together – like cereals and breakfast food, snacks, pasta/grains and baking ingredients.
Tupper-where is the lid
Tupperware is an item that a lot of people have trouble storing. It takes up space and putting matching tops and bottoms together sometimes seems impossible. The tops and bottoms might be disappearing to the same place as the matching socks that always seem to get lost in the dryer. Instead of storing them in cabinets, put a dish organizer in a pull-out drawer and store the Tupperware tops and bottoms with no problem.
Get OVer it
If you have a large pantry in your kitchen, consider an over the door organizer. You can store your most used food items in a clear organizer to eliminate search time and keep things neat.
