Kitchen cabinet organization tips
How to decide where to put things in kitchen cabinets
1. Give everything a designated home
When you are organizing your kitchen cabinets, and trying to decide what goes where, the most important thing is to make sure everything has a designated home.
You don’t want your tupperware mixed in with your glasses, or your plates mixed in with your spices. This only leads to more disorganization and excess clutter that we obviously don’t want.
2. Organize in stations
Make stations and zones in your kitchen to have easy access to what you need. For example, you can have a cooking zone, a baking zone, a zone for dishes, etc.
There are an endless range of zones and that you can create based on your cooking and everyday living habits. Which brings me to my next point….
3. Organize by your day to day routine
When organizing your kitchen cabinets, you want to make sure that in the end, it fits your overall day to day routine.
What do you find yourself reaching for most often? Are there any areas in your kitchen that aren’t currently working? Analyze your habits and build your kitchen organization plan from there.
