Your kitchen is one of the most frequently used, important rooms in your home. After all, you’re in there preparing three meals each and every day, along with your family’s snacks. It’s important to clean your kitchen regularly and keep everything in its proper place. The most common issue people have with keeping their kitchens organized is their ineffective use of the valuable real estate inside the cabinets and other storage areas. And in some kitchens the shelves and cupboards are too far apart, wasting space that could be used for storage and help prevent clutter if the design was different. Fortunately, by using more than one kitchen organizer, you can maximize your storage possibilities and organize your kitchen efficiently.
As with other areas you’d like to organize, you should begin by evaluating the items in your kitchen and deciding which of those items you’d like to keep or get rid of. If there’s something in your kitchen that you no longer use, consider getting rid of it. Unused appliances, dishes, baking pans and cooking implements, for example, can accumulate and really add to the clutter in your kitchen. If you don’t want them and don’t use them, get rid of them now. Sell them, give them away to your friends or family members, throw them out or donate them to charity.
Placing a standing kitchen organizer near your stove to store your cooking utensils and implements is convenient and a great way to free up valuable counter space or room in your drawers. You can choose from a wide assortment of different kitchen organizers, including cabinet organizers that have wires with drawers and shelves that can be adjusted so you can store dishes and different sizes of bowls. You can also use a slide-out or pull-out kitchen organizer in your lower kitchen cabinets to make your pots and pans much easier to reach. Try using a kitchen organizer that fits into one of your drawers to help you organize your medications so it’s easier to remember to take them when you need to. Other organizers work well for your spices. And remember to use a separate kitchen organizer for knives and other sharp utensils, sprays and other cleansers, and any electrical appliances you want to make inaccessible to your children for safety reasons.
Larger items such as a coffee bean grinder, juicer, toaster or coffee maker can be put onto a Lazy Susan or appliance barn to provide easy access while keeping your counters free when they’re not being used. You can keep your silverware in a drawer organizer or in a movable caddy that can be stored in the pantry, on a Lazy Susan or on one of the kitchen countertops.
