Of all the rooms that need organizing, your kitchen probably needs it most and lends itself to it the least. Fortunately, pulling that together is probably easier than you think.
You know what they say…the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is a very busy place! Let them visualize their items in the kitchen so much so that they can even see themselves making Aunt Sally’s lasagna recipe in the kitchen!
Countertops. Get started by clearing the counters as much as you can. Most people’s kitchen counters attract clutter that has nothing to do with cooking, baking or eating—papers and car keys and pens and all the plethora of your family’s life. Clear it off. If you don’t have a junk drawer (who doesn’t have a junk drawer?), start one. No…you don’t need 3! Buy some key hooks. And file folders. Find a space for everything—and don’t rely on the counter.
Cabinets. Another less-onerous trick is to put all the most-frequently-used items in front of your cabinets and put the less-used items in the back or even in a closet somewhere. What, you’re going to miss the three-pot crockpot system your mom gave you for Christmas 10 years ago?
