The kitchen is the one place in your home that gets used more often than most other areas. A cluttered kitchen is hard to keep clean and functioning. It's hard to get your child and spouses to pitch in with kitchen cleaning tasks if it is disorganized and cluttered. So, where do you begin and how do you maintain a tidy, organized kitchen and pantry?
Assess the situation. Just like cleaning out your typical closet, clear everything out of those cabinets, shelves and cupboards. Sort them into logical piles. Group the dishes you eat from, holiday, other seasonal items and special items can be stored separately. Discard containers without lids and store remaking contains with their lids on them or with lids in a larger container for easy access.
