The kitchen is definitely the heart of the home and you are likely to spend more time in there then anywhere else. Whether you are making dinner, having a cup of tea or baking a cake, having a kitchen that is well organised will make it easier to find things and will mean you don’t have to keep constantly moving stuff around when it comes to unloading the groceries.
These six tips will ensure your kitchen is the most organised kitchen in the neighbourhood:
Have a shelf dedicated to just your cookbooks. No photo frames, no kids’ books and definitely no ornaments should be on this shelf. You need ease of access when it comes to whipping up a storm.
Hooks on the inside of cupboards are perfect for hanging tea towels or oven mitts. Use the back of the kitchen door for aprons and secure pot holders to the walls for your cookware - this way you won’t have to route through your presses for that one pot that is tucked at the very back.
Dedicate a cupboard/ shelf to each meal
Store your breakfast things like cereals and porridge in one cupboard, your basics like pasta, soups, sauces in another and keep your sweet treats in a completely separate one. This makes it a whole lot easier when it comes to unpacking your groceries.
Keep like with like
Put your tin foil, clingfilm and black bags together in a drawer so you will know where they are when you need them and when you need to buy more. Do the same with your tubberware and baking trays to make your life a whole lot easier.
Stacking lids on top of one another can make it really frustrating when you are trying to find the lid that fits the pan you are using. So why not use plate stacks to hold your lids in the press.
Put all your cleaning things together
Get a high up cabinet and store all your cleaning products like bleach, disinfectant and polish together. Keeping them up high will ensure they are away from tiny hands.
