1Get Your Kitchen Straight
The kitchen is the lifeblood of any home. It’s where you come to meet and eat, so they say. That’s why it’s so important to arrange your kitchen with items that you use every day and items that you’ll use occasionally. The kitchen is also one of those places where small items just get misplaced if they’re not organized. You can make quick work of any meal or clean up by having convenient storage options for these small items. Here are a few ideas we like best for the kitchen:
- Tack your carton of trash bags and Ziploc bags to the inside of your pantry door.
- Use old folder organizers as a cheap solution to organizing cutting boards, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and other items that go together.
- Set up a tea tin with dividers so you can organize all of your tin together in your own custom box.
- Using baskets, liners, or even wood, you can turn your extra drawers into veggie holders for your onions, garlic, and potatoes. This keeps them off the counter where they tend to roll around.
- Put a tension rod in a bottom cabinet to hang your spray bottles on.
- Put a pegboard in the bottom of your drawer to organizer any dishes and bowls.

4Organize Your Home for Everyday Use
Not sure where to start? If you have a lot of “stuff” in your home that just doesn’t have a place, then you should think about the last time you used those items. If it’s been a long time, but you still can’t part with it, then you may want to think about setting up one large bin or shelf where all of these important items can go. Of course, you can’t keep everything, but that’s the point of getting clutter-free.
