10 Simple Kitchen Organizing Tips

A lot of the times we mean to get in there and finally organize the kitchen, but once things get out of control the job can seem so daunting and you just don’t know where to start. These top 10 kitchen organizing tips will help make your kitchen pleasant and welcoming.

The best way to start a huge task is to start small and reckon of one thing at a time. If you reckon of everything you need to do you may just never do it!

Here are some simple kitchen organizing tips:

Mentally Prepare - Look in your kitchen and make a mental note of what belongs in there, what can be place away, what you don’t need anymore, etc.

Organize Kitchen Cabinets – Take everything out of your kitchen cabinets, clean, and place them back into different categories such as glasses, plates, baking trays and so on. If your cabinets are organized you will save a lot of time during cooking.

Clean your Pantry - It’s incredible the things you’ll find stored in the back of a pantry. We often buy things we already have because we simply can’t find them. So, take everything out of the pantry, clean and place back in categories. Use one shelf for dry foods such as cereals, pasta, etc. Use another for canned goods, and so on. Use baskets in your pantries for smaller items like stock cubes and gravy mixes. This will make them simpler to find and avoid spillage from opened packets.

Use a Spice Rack – By simply using a wall-mounted or counter top spice rack you can save a lot of cabinet space and have your spices close at hand. Clearly mark your spices and place the ones you use more often towards the front of the rack.

Clear your Counter Tops – Remove any items you don’t use on a regular basis from your counter tops. Instead, store them in a cabinet or even your basement or garage (if you don’t use them very often). Group appliances together for conveniences like the toaster and coffee pot.

Organize that Junk Drawer – Okay, just because we all call it the “junk drawer” doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be organized. Take a look through and throw out any items you many not need. Place small baskets in there to store items like batteries, clips and all those other fascinating things we seem to collect in our kitchens.

Clean up your Cleaning Products – Buy an inexpensive plastic dish drainer and place it under your sink. These make it simple for you to organize cleaning products, sponges, etc. Please remember to keep a lock on all cabinets with perilous items if you have young children.

Clean that Fridge - Every time you go grocery shopping clean out your fridge. You’ll find lots of things in there which have gone terrible, are empty, etc. Throw out all these items and give your fridge a excellent wipe. Bacteria in fridges can accumulate quickly so you want to make sure this area is cleaned weekly.

Set up a Message Station - If your kitchen allows, set up a specific place for the telephone, messages, keys, etc. I have a small peg board where I keep reminders and messages. Underneath that there’s a wall-mounted key rack, and under that a small desk with the telephone, a basket for mail, a calendar and pens and paper for writing. Having an area like this can save you tons of time and you won’t loose messages or mail again. If you don’t have space for this in your kitchen then place it in your hallway or living room.

Invest and be Clutter Free – Now you can find all sorts of inexpensive organizing products and gadgets for your kitchen and home. If possible invest in a few of these as they will make your job much simpler. A simple pegboard where you can keep photos, messages or your kids works of art can be a lifesaver. The same thing goes for a plastic bag organizer or excellent spice rack. Invest a small and you’ll reap the rewards in time saved and much more pleasant kitchen to cook in.
