Tips and tricks for organizing this heavily used space are a dime a dozen, but some of the most sensible are worth sharing. Check out these useful ideas.
Store your cookbooks well, whether in a shelf built into the wall, in baskets in a cupboard, or on the bottom shelf of a side table. Then put all those stray recipes you’ve printed off the Internet in a binder, categorized by type.
Use a utensil canister to keep at hand all the spoons, whisks, and spatulas you use often.
Hang aprons and other linens. Use pegs, an over-the-door rack, or a creative rolling-pin apron hanger.
Put your spices on bleachers. A three-step spice rack makes for plenty of space so you can tell the cinnamon from the cardamom.
Choose a Tupperware organization scheme and stick to it. You can organize them in a cabinet, stack them in a dish drainer, file them in a drawer, or use some other ingenious method of keeping those stray lids straight.
Bring in baskets to organize your kitchen. Slide them onto shelves along with your dishes, use them as an attractive way to store produce on the countertop, or make them do the heavy lifting in the pantry.
