Making your own shelves to accommodate your needs. We all have different taste and styles which means different types of food selections. To get the most out of your cabinet space, simply go to your local hardware store and have them cut out shelves to the dimensions of your cabinet. No more than 2-3 shelves are needed, but make a huge difference in organization. No more hide and seek, spoiling food, and cleaning up after the leftovers or boxes of cereal have splattered all over the floor and you.
Most cleaning products these days can be used for more than one job. No more than 4 products should be in your home. One for your bathroom, kitchen, wood furniture and carpet are all you need. This also cuts down on the amount of chemicals in your home, especially if you have children or pets.
Always trying to find your turner, spacula, tongs, etc. that are stuffed in a crock or thrown into a drawer. Hanging utensils is a great way to keep them organized and easily accessible. It also cuts down on breaking or damaging them. It also is a great way to keep them out of the reach of children and leaves you more counter space.
- Make a list on the computer of the most important items you always buy at the grocery store. This will cut down on time and prevents you from forgetting the milk each week.
- Small cleaning 2-3 times a week will help keep your kitchen not only clean but helps reduced clutter and stress.
- Once every 3 months, check your appliances to make sure they are functioning properly to prevent any unexpected breakdowns.
- Check once a week at your local home improvement store for discount and deals. These discounts and deals never last long nor greatly advertised, so do your homework to get the best deals.
- Before you start searching for a design, for a month each week chart how you use your kitchen, your routine, how much space you use, what you use the most and then put a list together of the most important aspects.
- If possible, get an extra storage cabinet to help reduce the space on the counter and/or shelves. It keeps the kitchen free, spacious and inviting.
