Making Space - Kitchen Organization April 30 2014, 0 Comments

It seems we never really have enough space, especially in the kitchen. With all the fun gadgets and accessories, in addition to you normal, everyday essentials, space fills up very quickly! This is precisely why kitchen organization is so important. It's amazing what organization can do in your cabinets and pantries. The most important aspect of organization, is the plan. Without a plan you will likely buy too many items, not enough items, or not the best items for the space. Take an inventory of what your staples (those items you almost always have in the kitchen), take a look at your cabinet size, shelving and drawer options and sizes. These will all help you figure out the best use of space and ensure you get the organizer that will fit in the space you have available.

For instance, would your cooking utensils be better in a drawer or on the counter, should you put your cereal in matching containers or keep them in their boxes. These and many other considerations should be thought about because they will be different for each household. It's a matter of preference and ease. Some pantries are great for stacking boxes, others work better in matching containers.

Some you can buy at the dollar store or online. Others are specialty products that are custom ordered. Many times you will need a mixture of both, look at stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx for some items, a lot of times you can get a great product for a much lesser cost, but remember it is hit or miss and you may not be able to buy another item that matches down the road. For more specialty items your local Home Depot, Lowes and Container Store will have more specific items for your kitchen. And if you are comfortable ordering them online, your options are endless.
