Get A Tidy, Organized Kitchen

Get A Tidy, Organized Kitchen

Most of us have at least one, probably two junk drawers in our kitchen. The kitchen, whether we like it or not is a popular breeding ground for junk. So if you’ve always wanted a tidy, organized kitchen where everything is right where you need it, take control and get it!

First you need to sort and toss. Chances are, much of your clutter is composed of stuff that isn’t really essential to the day-to-day functioning of your kitchen. Start the cleaning process by purging your cabinets and drawers of gadgets you hardly ever use. Take a hard look at your kitchen gadgets. You can hang on to the tools that do many things well, like your blender, and consider ditching the cumbersome one-trick ponies like your hard-boiled egg cooker.

Donate the things you don’t need. They will give you a tax receipt and you’ll never miss the stuff.

Once you’ve pared your inventory down to the essentials, put them in places that make the most sense. Keep glassware and cups near the refrigerator or sink; utensils, spices and plates near the cooking area; mugs near the coffeemaker.

You’ll not only save space, you’ll save steps, and that saves time.

Now, you need to get smart. Consider freeing up precious counter space by installing an under-cabinet coffeemaker, or one that installs directly into your cabinetry. Finally, eliminate the piles of takeout menus and recipes torn out of magazines from your kitchen. If you can‘t part with them, organize them in folders that are tucked away in your drawers.

    Not only junk but most likely, germs and bacteria.Cleaning and having the kitchen organized is something that should be done at least twice a month to keep everything tidy.
