Tips to keep your kitchen always organized:

  • Food: they can be grains, cereals, legumes, nuts, pasta, sugar, salt, seeds, etc., all of them can go in plastic or glass containers, transparent or not, but labeled with a name and expiration date.
  • Spices: they can go in small glass jars with a label. The pots can be the ones that come when you buy them or with the ones you have acquired, glass or plastic, and the size according to the amount of use, you give them. They can be suspended with magnets to save space, inside drawers or cabinets, or in baskets within your hands.
  • Pan lids: Pan lids sometimes hinder us more than help us unless they are on your pan while cooking. The most common thing is always being out of sight when looking for them or cooking. Sometimes, we need somewhere to put them. Find a special place for them that only takes up a little space.
  • Spoons and other tools with long handles: these work very well in large jars next to your stove and also in devices that allow you to hang them; it’s much more convenient and accessible to reach out and get hold of the spoon to scoop the spaghetti out of the water or grab the broth ladle, bean steamer, or pancake spatula.
  • Knives are other essential kitchen elements that require a unique space to achieve quick and safe access.
  • Kitchen towels: having them close by (but not so close to the stove) improves our lives. They are instrumental, so you need a place where you can easily hang them.
  • Cooking oils: having them nearby in a unique basket for this makes you cook with more order and cleanliness. Try to put other similar foods that you use to cook, such as vinegar, vinaigrettes, salt, pepper, etc.
  • Cups for daily coffee: there are devices to put under the cabinets that hang three or four cups. It makes it accessible daily when you have your coffee, so you don’t have to open cabinets.
  • Baskets for vegetables most used in the kitchen and that do not need refrigeration: such as potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, etc. They can go in a drawer near your cooking area, which is cool and ventilated.
  • Soaps and detergents for kitchen cleaning must be well stored, although they are used almost daily, and must be in a place where you can have quick access and that is clean.
