6 Easy Tips for Organizing Your Kitchen

organizedkitchen

If you are anything like me, once the holidays are over and the Christmas tree has been taken down, you are ready to get yourself organized for the year. 

Where is the best place to start?  For me, I spend most of my time in the kitchen so I like to start there. 

Here are a few easy tips to get your kitchen organized!

1.  Roll your towels! 

It saves a lot of room and they look cute!

3.  Use hooks. 

I like having my oven mit, pot holders and towels handy and hooks inside the cabinets are a great use of space!

4.  Use labels to organize. 

 These labels are my very favorite because they are customizable in three colors!  Labeling your bins and baskets helps your family and you remember where things go after you use them.

5.  Create different zones in the kitchen. 

I have a coffee, baking, lunch making, dish washing zone in my kitchen so that everything that I use when I do these tasks are all together.

6.  Create a menu plan and keep it handy. 

I hang mine inside the door of my pantry.  Having a menu plan really helps cut down on the stress that can happen around meal time.  I remember many times standing at the fridge trying to decide what to make at the last minute, keeping an organized menu plan helps eliminate a lot of that!

I have a list of meals for each week but I can pick which meal I make each day.  I mark it off as I have made them.  Hanging below my Family Menu is my grocery list sheet, I like having it in the pantry so that I can add items that I have run out of right away.
