The kitchen is the heart of our home, like in many people’s homes around the globe. This is where we not only prepare our food and eat it, it’s a meeting place for our family, where deep discussions are had and our baby’s first steps were taken (no joke!). The kitchen is my happy place, where I can get creative, let loose and just be in the zone to cook up a storm and get a healthy meal on the table for my family. And this means it gets messy quickly!
By taking part in the Kitchen Stuff Plus Organization Event, on now in stores and online, I realized that my kitchen had no flow- in the sense that items didn’t make sense in their current placement. Items I needed while cooking weren’t readily available-they were halfway across the room. There was also a lot of wasted space in my cabinets, unnecessary clutter, items I no longer need and multiple packs of the same food because I had forgotten that I had bought some in previous week(s)!!! This collaboration gave me the chance to focus on the room in my home that I used most but had spent the least amount of time giving any thought too. I seriously had not made any changes to my kitchen since we moved in 4.5 years ago.
Here is how I went about prepping my kitchen:
Empty out one cabinet at a time
Wipe down all cabinet shelves and insides of cabinet doors
Go through cabinet contents and discard anything expired, discard or donate items no longer used and put aside anything that needs to go somewhere else in the kitchen
make a game plan for that particular cabinet (ie. plates cabinet, glasses/mugs cabinets, small appliances cabinet etc)
Start organizing the cabinet using the accessories from Kitchen Stuff Plus
Repeat until your entire kitchen is organized!
And now for my clean and organized kitchen cabinets thanks to the accessories from Kitchen Stuff Plus and Amazon:
