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.
Around our home, we believe parents do their kids a disservice if they're not given the responsibility of contributing to the household through chores. Kids that never have to lift a dirty sock or clear their place after dinner grow up to be selfish and expect the world at large to tend to their every whim. That's indulgent and impractical. On the other hand, kids that are given responsibility at an early age for tasks well within their capabilities learn to appreciate the work which goes into running a home. Those kids are more likely to appreciate the effort put into making a meal. Clean clothes in the closet don't just appear; someone had to wash, dry, sort and hang them.
Any kitchen organizing solution begins with uncluttering. Take everything out of the drawer. Sort items into one of 3 piles based on how regularly you use the item. Sorting by your/family usage is easier and helps weed out under utilized or infrequently used kitchen items. For each item place it in one of three piles; regularly used pile; less often used pile or, almost/never used pile. This way you are getting rid of kitchen declutter. The almost never used pile of items is the pile for charity or to throw out. The exception are those items, like a turkey baster for instance, used for annual events like holidays. Try and keep these items to a minimum or better yet store them away with the other same seasonal items. For instance, the nut cracker you pull out every December, keep it with your other items you store for this time of year. For the less often used pile look to dispose of duplicates, worn out, novelty items no longer used. Keep the regularly used items. A general rule of thumb is 25% of the stuff we currently have, we can live without. See if you are living by this rule.
