Insightful Tips for an Efficient Kitchen

w-Kitchen Organization 006 thumb1There are many important rooms in your home and because it’s where you feed your family, the kitchen is one of them. In these hectic times, you sometimes need to prepare meals quickly. One way to do that is to organize your kitchen beforehand. Here are some useful tips that will, in addition to hiring a maid service, make your kitchen area cleaner and more organized.

 

1. Putting Things in Their Place: Go through your kitchen and make sure there’s little to no clutter. Have a spot for everything. This will help you find things when you need them so there’s no scavenging through drawers when your family is hungry.

 

2. Organize Based on Use: Put the things you use more often in places that are easier to get to while the other things go elsewhere. While you are organizing, check the expiration dates on foods and get rid of those that are closer to their dates.

 

3. Putting Like Items with Like Items: Things of the same category should go together. These means that all silverware goes together in the same drawer, while all your cleaning supplies end up in the same closet. Supplies for your parties like balloons, party plates, and even confetti can be put in a drawer. Some things that don’t have anything to do with cooking like tools, batteries, and parts tend to end up in a cabinet. You might want to buy a storage device for these things and use the space for cooking related tasks. These actions allow you to find what you’re looking for more quickly and therefore get your meals done sooner.

 

One last thing: You might be tempted to leave a thing or two somewhere other than its usual place if you’re tired or in a hurry. But if you keep everything where it’s supposed to be, then you’ll be rewarded with knowing where it is when you need it. This will make your kitchen not only nicer looking, but better organized too.
