From prepping the morning coffee to working to get dinner on the table on a hectic weekday, you put quite a strain on your kitchen day in and day out. Here are a few effective ways to maintain order in your kitchen, no matter how busy your weeks can get!
- Maximize the space in your cabinets. If your cabinets only have a few shelves, add more. If your belongings are always a jumbled mess, add organizers. Many people don’t consider adding new shelving or dividers in their cabinets, but this is one of the easiest ways to make your kitchen work better for your specific needs.
- Bring in a bar cart. If you need additional storage but don’t have the space (or the budget), a bar cart is a great solution. Use this for your coffee maker and mugs, baking tools, or even as a traditional bar cart with wine and cocktail essentials.
- Keep the counters clean. Avoid storing things on the counters in order to create space for cooking and more room for navigating your kitchen.
- Group like items together. Take a day to organize your utensils, pans, and even your food, grouping the items that you usually use together in one place.
