How to Organize, Streamline and Transform your Kitchen in One Day

Has cooking become a chore you dread? Not because you hate cooking but because your kitchen is so cluttered that it’s like going into a battlefield? There’s not enough room on your countertops. You spend ages looking for a specific pan or utensil. Finding a measuring cup is like looking for buried treasure…
If this scenario seems familiar, then it’s time to bring sanity back to your kitchen. The following steps are simple, straightforward and easy. They will help you organize and streamline your kitchen in just one day.

Start with radical decluttering
Place a few empty cardboard boxes in the middle of your kitchen and go through everything in your cupboards and drawers. Thoroughly declutter by separating items to donate and items to throw away in the cardboard boxes.

  • Get rid of duplicate gadgets that more or less do the same thing
  • Het rid of duplicate utensils
  • Get rid of chipped or cracked plates, mugs and glasses
  • Get rid of stained pots and pans and containers that are missing lids.
  • Evaluate each item and just get rid of everything you don’t use on a regular basis.
  • Get rid of old spices and other food items 5that have expired
    When you’re through, your drawers and cabinets should ideally contain half of what they did before.
    Create functional work areas
    In other words, clear those counters!
    You should now have enough room in your drawers and cabinets to move everything on your counters inside them to create kits of space for cooking and food preparation.
  • Your counters should be bare except for items you use every day like the coffee machine or blender.
  • Make sure that areas around the sink and stove are clear to make cooking and cleaning easier.
    Organize supplies smartly
  • Place utensils and supplies for like tasks near each other. For example, baking bowls, cake pans and measuring cups can be organized in a cabinet with spatulas, whisks and measuring spoons in an adjoining drawer.
  • Organize mugs, glasses plates and serving dishes in a separate area.
  • Stack pot and pans neatly, each with its lid and organize large frying forms and cooking spoons in a drawer nearby or above the cabinet,
    This simple method will streamline your tasks and save loads of time.
    Group and clearly label spices
    It doesn’t make sense to have your spices scattered in different places.
  • Group them all together in one cupboard or invest in a decorative spice rack that stays on the counter.
  • Label the tops of the spice jars clearly to easily find what you want.
  • If you keep your spices inside a cabinet, put them all in a basket. That way, you can take out the whole basket, keep everything nearby when you’re cooking then put it back when you’re done.
    Invest in containers and drawer dividers
  • Use containers to group small items like peelers, measuring spoons or scissors together and easy to find when you need them
  • Use drawer dividers to keep items separate and again, easy to find.
    Conclusion
    That’s how easy it is to transform your kitchen from a place of clutter and chaos to an organized, functional space where you will enjoy preparing creative meals or just relaxing with a cup of coffee,
    There’s nothing fancy or complicated to it. Just follow the simple steps above and get down to it. All you need is one day, determination and a few cardboard boxes!

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Safari. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

  2. First of all I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before
    writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!

  3. I absolutely love your website.. Very nice colors & theme.
    Did you build this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own personal site and would love to know where you got this from
    or what the theme is named. Many thanks!

  4. First of all I would like to say superb blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

  5. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this site.
    I really hope to see the same high-grade blog posts by you in the future as well.

    In fact, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my very own website now 😉

  6. I do agree with all the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They’re really convincing and will definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for beginners. May just you please
    extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

  7. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this site could certainly be one of the most
    beneficial in its niche. Great blog!

  8. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  9. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  10. Howdy excellent website! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount
    of work? I have absolutely no expertise in coding however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just needed to ask.
    Appreciate it!

  11. After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me
    when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.

    There has to be a way you can remove me from
    that service? Cheers!

  12. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  13. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or advice.
    Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!

  14. of course like your web-site but you have to test the spelling
    on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it
    very troublesome to inform the reality nevertheless I will definitely come back again.

  15. Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
