Whether your home or apartment in Cleveland is a modest studio or a 900 square foot home, being well organized saves you time, money, and frustration. This is particularly true when it comes to one of the busiest places of your domicile, your kitchen. Having well organized kitchen cabinets is like a dream come true once you get there, but it can take some work to achieve. If you have roughly a day’s worth of time to devote, follow our tips to organize your kitchen cabinets.
Use an inventory
Before getting started with the organization process, go through everything in your kitchen. Get rid of anything that’s unused, broken, or expired. If you have unused items that haven’t been touched in a while, sell, donate or give away what can be salvaged and ditch the rest. This will severely cut down on clutter and additional items you’ll need to organize.
All of these things should be like the other
Grouping similar items together in easy to understand categories will allow you to find a particular item when you need it with little effort. For example, items specifically used for baking can be grouped together in one area of your kitchen cabinets, letting them be undisturbed when not needed. When it’s baking day, you can reach to one area to retrieve all the hardware required to complete your confection.
Loose item containers
There’s no need to have random items strewn about in your kitchen cabinets. Purchasing clear containers and organizing those with loose cooking or baking essentials in each will allow for less mess and more organization. For example, a transparent container that’s been organized to store dry pasta and sauce will be easy to reach for on pasta night. Keeping these types of containers in your cabinets not only allows for better organization, but it’s more aesthetically appealing than random mismatched boxes piled on top of each other in the cupboards.
