Simple yet effective organizing tips for your kitchen can make all the difference in how much you enjoy being in your kitchen. As an avid cook and baker, I love being in the kitchen, but when it gets unorganized, I become a little frazzled. And a frazzled cook is not an effective one! If you’re trying to organize your life, try starting in your kitchen. You’d be surprised just how much a few simple organizing tips for your kitchen will enhance your home and inspire you to cook more often.
1. Clean out Your Fridge
For starters, one of the most important organizing tips for your kitchen is to clean out your fridge. You should start at the top and work towards the bottom, so that when you remove foods and wipe down your shelves, debris doesn’t fall down onto shelves you’ve already cleaned. I suggest removing all the foods one shelf at a time, so nothing stays out of the fridge too long. Prepare a bucket with equal parts baking soda and water, and a touch of white vinegar. Then, take a hot cloth and wipe down your shelves, being sure to clean in between all the grooves. Place your foods back in your fridge, organized in some kind of manner, and enjoy how things look. You’ll be more inspired to put healthy foods into your fridge and enjoy cooking more often when you know it’s clean and organized. Do this at least once a month optimally.
