I’ll be ending the kitchen posts for now, but lastly let’s review the new habits and routines to help  maintain your organised kitchen:

  1. Keep your kitchen clutter free
  2. Clear fridge of all old food the night before your grocery shop
  3. Drawers:  Donate to charity or throw away all utensils that you haven’t used for 6-12 months.
  4. Meal planning saves time, eliminates waste, promotes healthy eating and will lower your frustrations
  5. You don’t need a junk drawers in the kitchen, takes up too much valuable space
  6. Pantry:  Use food close to expiry in the pantry – Utilise space on walls – Group like items together – Label containers
  7. Make your bench and sink sparkle each night
  8. Creating homes for items in kitchen cupboards.  Everything should be returned to it’s place.

Try these ideas but remember this is what suits me to keep my kitchen organised.  If after a few weeks it doesn’t suit you, try an alternative system to suit your family, but don’t give up.  Change is hard to accept however, if you follow your new routine continually for at least 6 weeks it will soon form into a habit.

I try take take one of your tips and incorporate it into my weekly cleaning routine. Once it has become part of the usual routine instead of an “extra” thing to do, I then add another.
