Well we are almost a month into 2017. How are those resolutions going? If you need another thing to add to that “to do” list I have just the thing. What better way to start the New Year than be re organizing your kitchen?! Fun stuff right! Hopefully this can be a quick reminder/check list for you when you decide to take on that feat.
Tupperware is kind of like socks. You put the container and the lid into the dishwasher and only half comes out. This leaves you with mismatched Tupperware sets that serve little purpose without the other half. Not to mention that your Tupperware may be stained by old food or broken or cracked from over use. My suggestion, start over. Get rid of all the unusable Tupperware and just get a new set. If you are looking to re up take a look at these food storage containers.
Clean out the Refrigerator
Okay this one can be a pain, but once you are done it is such a weight lifted. Clean out the old food, get rid of your leftovers from two weeks ago and organize that over stuffed freezer! Once you organize your freezer you will have more room for that ice cream you know you want J
Okay this is never a fun thing to do but alas it must be done. Deep clean your microwave, coffeepot/Keurig, get a new filter for your water, and sweep the crumbs out of your toaster oven. It may seem like overkill but those appliances can get grimy really quickly and it is always nice just getting all of your kitchen appliances cleaned at once
Overtime it seems like somehow your counter starts to shrink. Slowly but surely you start to accumulate useless stuff on your counter that is doing nothing more than cluttering your kitchen and taking up space. Find a new home for all of the nick knacks and random things that have found their way onto your counter. This also has the added perk of making more room for your Butter Bay. It will make your kitchen feel bigger and you will have more wiggle room when you are cooking and baking in your home.
Organize junk drawer
Every kitchen have a junk drawer. Well at least mine does. A drawer filled to the brim with random household necessities. Anything from scissors, tape, pens, batteries, paperclips, pretty much anything you could ever need. I know it’s not typically important to organize this space because it is so cluttered with random stuff but it could be a nice way to get rid on unnecessary things in your home and make room for more goodies!
Those are just a couple things you can do to get your kitchen space feeling clean and fresh for the New Year! What other ways do you tidy your kitchen and home! Let me know in the comments or on Facebook. We love to hear from our readers. You butter believe it!
