If you’re just moving in or your current arrangement does not flow quite as efficiently as it could, organizing your kitchen area can streamline your activities and keep your kitchen looking neat and tidy. All you’ll need is some time, a little ingenuity, and some determination.
Donate or Sell whatever you really don’t use. Pass it along to a friend or relative, add it to Bikroy.com / Akhanei / OLX for online sale, or donate it to non-profit charity. Be truthful! When did you last use that Oven, Juicer or cookie press? Do you even know what the gadgets do? Do you really need two? Could a more general tool do the task? If you get rid of it, you won’t have to hunt past it for things you do use or find a space to keep it.
Change things that’s not working. If the handle on a pot rattles, the spout always gets clogged up, or the pan always scorches the food, fix or change it! If you can’t afford an upgraded right now, put it on a list and save your money, or request one for a birthday or holiday.
Store regularly used things in easy to reach locations.‘ discover that which you use oftentimes. Figure out where you will use them most. Infrequently used things, like the roasting pan that you only carry out during the vacations, can go on high cabinets or in the back of cabinets. They can even be stored away from kitchen in the storage area, loft, garage, guest room closet, or a box under a bed. Make sure every item in your kitchen has earned its right to take up your valuable area! Keep in mind: if you use it occasionally enough, it should go out entirely. Simply because it’s large or expensive, it doesn’t mean you should keep it. If you made pasta twice ten years ago, please shift the pasta machine.
Create centers of activity as well as store relating goods near where they will be used. Below are some common centers of activity, in the order that food will travel through the kitchen:
Storage or pantry. Consider carefully your refrigerator an extension of this area. Whether you store food items in a true kitchen pantry, a cabinet, a closet, or anywhere else entirely, don’t forget to go through occasionally and clean out items that are hopelessly old or never will be used.
- Preparation: Cutting board, knives, measuring cups and spoons, and mixing bowls all go here.
- Cooking: The cooking stove and oven and the utensils that go with them. This area should include pans and pots, pot holders, spoons and spatulas (a utensil jar works well for these).
- Baking: If you love to bake, you might find it handy to store your flour, sugar, baking powder, a set of measuring cups and spoons, your preferred mixing bowl, etc. together in a single convenient spot.
- Serving: The table, plus tableware, serving dishes, napkins, trivets, and whatever else you need to sit down and eat. Soy sauce? Salt and pepper shakers? Sugar bowl? Ask yourself whether it would be better to store your dishes and silverware near the table or the dish-washer.
- Cleaning: The sink, dishwasher and surroundings. Soap, gloves, dish pan, drying rack, cleansers, towels, etc.
- Trash dumping: Keep a trash can handy, plus recycling and compost bins, too. Locate them as centrally as possible without being in the way. They should go near the cleaning and food preparation zones.
Clean the counter. Pay specific attention to decreasing the number of objects stored permanently on the counter. The counter needs frequent cleaning plus its your primary work area. Find someone for knick knacks and anything else that doesn’t really need to live there.
Write down a list. Tattered dishcloths? Out of soap? As you go, write down supplies you find lacking or worn out. Also write down side projects that you find as you go (such as fixing a table leg). Writing them down allows you to tackle distractions later without missing things.
Handle the paper. Do mail, homework, newspapers, phone calls, or bill paying generate paper in the kitchen? Decide between these strategies:
Give paper another home. Create a paper-sorting center, ideally between the mailbox and the kitchen, with bins for sorting paper, a recycling bin and trash can, space to write, and other necessary supplies.
Make a proper space for paper in the kitchen. Admit that it’s going to land there and have a tidy area to put it and a system for clearing it out regularly.
Clean as you go. When you clear one drawer or shelf, eliminate the crumbs before replacing the contents. Cleaning a little at a time makes it less of a chore.
