One of my big New Year's Resolutions this
year is to get my kitchen organized. Not
that it's a total mess, but my spice cabinet
is stuffed to the brim, and there's no
telling what's hiding in the back of my
Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going
through all my cabinets, the pantry and the
fridge, tossing, cleaning and reorganizing.
I did this last year and it's such a nice
feeling to know exactly what's in my kitchen
and knowing that I can find exactly what I'm
Come up with a system (either alphabetical
or by cuisine) for your spices and sort them
that way. It will make it much easier to
find a certain spice if you have a system.
Do the same with your pantry. I like to
dedicate certain shelves (or areas of that
shelf) to certain items. I have a cereal
shelf for example as well as a bread section
and even my canned goods are sorted by
veggies, fruit and meats etc. This is also a
great time to check on the expiration date
on various dry goods including canned items,
spices and mixes.
Consider buying a few stackable plastic
containers for your cereal, flour, dry pasta
etc. It can save you a lot of room instead
of using the huge cardboard containers these
products come in originally.
Your Fridge and Freezer
Give your fridge a good cleaning and toss
anything that looks questionable or has
expired. Don't forget to toss all those
little restaurant sauce containers too that
have accumulated in a corner of your fridge
over the past months. Don't forget to go
through the freezer compartment of your
fridge or any other freezer you have in the
house as well.
Take a few hours over the next couple of
weeks to give your kitchen an organization
make-over. Just having everything clean will
make you feel better and more organized.
Make A Meal Plan
Don't forget to look at how you cook dinner.
Do you scramble in the evening to come up
with something you can quickly fix for your
hungry family? If so, take a look at meal
planning and see if you can't get more
organized and make cooking dinner easier on
yourself by planning what you will prepare
ahead of time.
