Begin by emptying everything out

Start by emptying out the cabinetry. This will help with organizing your cabinets in a timely matter. Once you have emptied everything out you will have a clear understanding of not only how much stuff you really have but how much stuff you could get rid of! Let the organized kitchen begin…

Establish a plan for your cabinetry

Are you tired of walking across the kitchen to grab your oven mitts? Not a problem, make it that your oven mitts and other heat protecting items by the oven. Tired of having to go into the pantry for spices you need when cooking? Again, not a problem. Install an easy spice rack beside your oven and stove for easy access!

The worst part of taking the time to organize your kitchen is the few weeks later that it turns right back to what it was before. To avoid this, take the time to really focus on how to make things stick this time around. Instead of having a junk drawer, fill the drawer with dividers and color coordinate where bills can go in each drawer. This will force you to keep things organized as you can’t just throw it into the drawers. Same goes for tupperware and pots/pans. Start by, installing dividers in your cabinetry, this makes it easier for you to keep everything organized and in its place. Now you have an organized kitchen and it’ll hopefully stay this way!
