Take Control for an Organized Kitchen
Here’s how it works:
There are a series of 6 posts that focus on one part of the kitchen. You can choose to go through all 6 at once or take your time. If you do one per day, you will have an organized kitchen in less than a week.
Still need more convincing?
The series goes through the exact steps I take when my kitchen starts to get out of hand. Anyone who knows me personally can tell you that I am a very organized person. Sometimes it borders on OCD a bit. But over time things get misplaced or we get new kitchen stuff (I’m always buying things for the kitchen) and it just gets stuffed wherever we can fit it at the time.
My parents were in town last weekend and my mom (who is here often) was telling my dad where to find something in the kitchen “unless Stephanie rearranged again.” I retorted quickly by saying I haven’t for at least a few months until Justin reminded me that I just switched a couple of drawers two weeks ago. I organize the kitchen so often I don’t even remember doing it!
Of course, you don’t have to rearrange as often as I do. About every 6 months I go in the kitchen and do a big cleanout. I follow all the steps I outline in my emails, but I like to do it all in one day. I know, for many, that either isn’t possible or extremely overwhelming, which is why the series is broken down into 6 posts.
Get Started on your Organized Kitchen
What do you need to start?
All you NEED is a kitchen and the desire to have it better organized and easier to cook in.
What do you WANT? Well, that depends on you and your kitchen and your personal workflow.
I like having all of the food in my pantry in containers rather than the packaging it comes in. First, because it looks nicer and, as a food blogger, I am constantly in and out of my pantry. Second, I can see exactly how much we have left of items since they are clear containers. Third, my pantry is an odd shape so it helps keep everything organized.
Personally, I don’t like anything on my counters except a few essentials, like my stand-mixer, so finding space for everything is key.
