Drawers, Cupboards, and Counters: Everything in Its Place

The kitchen is a very important room in your home. It’s where you make dinner to feed your family and it carries all the tools needed for preparing, cooking, and serving food. Keeping it organized is an important part of housekeeping and will certainly help prepare fast meals in your fast paced world. There are many things you can do, in addition to hiring a maid service, to make your kitchen more clean, organized, and easier to maneuver.

To begin with, one of the most basic things you can do is arrange all your kitchen items to obtain more organization. This will help ensure that there’s little to no clutter in your cabinets and drawers and prevent you from having to search for something or pull out a bunch of items just to find that one item.

Second, organize based on how frequently items are used and check expiration dates on food containers so you can get rid of older food. This not only saves space, but also makes items readily and easily available. In other words, have your frequently used kitchen tools and other kitchen items easily available and place lesser used items elsewhere. Can openers, chef knives, plates, silverware, cups, storage containers, etc. gets used frequently so having those items conveniently available saves time and provides better organization. If you are a cooking guru and love to cook with recipes, you can conveniently place them somewhere on the counter or in a nearby cabinet too.

Third, it’s important to put like items with like items. This makes it easier to find things when you need them, just like placing oil cans and lubricants on a shelf together in your garage. You can place all silverware together in a silverware tray and have all your cleaning supplies in one area. The plates and bowls can go together in a cabinet and your party supplies like balloons, party plates, plastic silverware, and even confetti can fit in a drawer for easy retrieval. Screwdrivers, mini tools, and lost parts tend to end up in a drawer in the kitchen. Perhaps you can purchase a small storage container to hold those items and use the drawer for other kitchen needs.

On a last note, you may be tempted to leave things in different places if you are in a hurry or tired. Nevertheless, if you take the time and will power to always put things in their proper place then you will be rewarded with knowing where everything is when you need it. You will have a kitchen that looks not only under control, but also cleaner and more organized.
