Yes we're talking about that junk drawer. How many times have you gone to use a pen that doesn't work but it's still hanging out in there? Throw it away along with any dried up markers and sharpen the pencils so you can use them. Maybe there is a tool box or bag those tools belong to out in the garage? If you can't remember what those spare parts belong to throw those out as well! There may still be a need for various manuals and one way to store them is to keep them all in a large zip lock bag. You could even relocate all the contents of this drawer to a desk drawer if one is available.
Once things are fresh and covered, dig into your kitchen drawers. This is often one of the most disorganized parts of a kitchen because people think nobody looks in their drawers other than those using them. However, even if this is true, using disorganized drawers adds to stress and frustration when cooking. Everyone knows how annoying it is to reach into a drawer while cooking three of four items on the stove, only to see a giant mess and no whisk, spatula or stirring spoon. Use drawer organizers to divide items into categories and if you feel like there are no organizers that suit your needs, make your own.
If you want to save yourself some energy, you can look on the internet. Most any online store will offer hundreds of kitchen drawer pulls to choose. You will be able to see a picture, a description, and a price. The only drawback to online buying is that you can not feel the weight of the drawer pulls in your hand. This is an indication of durability. Wherever you decide to buy your drawer knobs, look for long-wearing, stylish hardware in styles that interest you. It is very as important that you find ones that complement your kitchen and make it a harmonious room.
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home and it will probably be one of the busiest and often used. While the chef of the family may consider the kitchen their own personal domain, kitchens are also gathering spaces for family gatherings and evenings of entertaining. Whether you are working, eating or visiting, you will probably spend time in the kitchen in your own home or in the homes of others. This is why it is important for homeowners to keep their kitchens organized and clean. If you plan ahead and create a system, it will be easier and less time-consuming to do this. Start by storing edible items safely. The last thing you want is to waste items that spoil or to have to smell items that have gone bad. Food packaging and corrugated boxes help to keep things fresh. You can also put items into special storage containers that are intended to extend their shelf life.
You may find yourself looking for some extra cabinet handles so you can put even more utensils on the wall. The more you do this, the more drawer space you're clearing up. We all know what that means. It's time to go shopping for some of the kitchen tools or gadgets you didn't have as you now have room to store them!
