A lot of us complain of untidy kitchens, inability to find things and so on. There’s nothing worse than having to make do with a badly organized kitchen, as it can sap so much of your time and energy, both of which could be spent doing many other things especially as most people are so busy now. It is important to get into some good habits from the onset so that you save time daily.
So, here are a few tips to make your kitchen work the best for your needs, keep it tidy and make them more effective, stress free and a fun place to be in. Hope they help.
Wipe down all surfaces daily. This wouldn’t just help in terms of cleanliness; you are safeguarding your health and preventing grime build up.
Take the bin out at the end of the day. This is very important in keeping rodents and pests away.
Always leave the room tidy and everything packed away at the end of the day.
As much as possible, do not leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight.
Put things away as soon as you use them – you’ll then always be able to find them when you need them.
Have a place for everything – and stick with it.
When you bring new products home from shopping, place them behind the older stuff, that way you shouldn’t find that you waste resources.
Regularly sort and clean your fridge and freezers. Some people neglect their fridges from the moment of purchase till eternity. This is unhealthy and a lot of foods go to waste like this.
If you have a small kitchen, arranging things properly and concisely will save space and time for you.
Whatever your kitchen layout is, you can make it work better for you by storing items close by where you need to use them and putting the most frequently used items in the easiest to reach places.
Storing food in a logical way will help with making the most of it and not wasting as much, and will also make your food shopping much easier to do.
Importantly, make it a place not just for cooking: if you spend time in here most days, then think of other things that would work better if you kept them in here.
Make your space work for you, and you’ll find it a happier and stress free place to be.
