In many homes, the kitchen is the center of activity. It’s where we enjoy family meals, game day snacks with friends, pancakes on Sunday mornings, and late night ice cream parties during sleepovers. For the host with the most, it’s important to always be ready to whip up something delicious but it’s also easy to find yourself lost in the clutter. In the kitchen, a little organization can go a long way. Today we are going to talk about getting organized in the kitchen with our custom labels—so you can spend less time tracking down that “missing ingredient” and more time focused on the sweeter moments in life.
One of the first steps to getting organized in the kitchen is getting rid of the clutter. That means purging that old pile of papers you’ve had sitting on the counter since you moved in, but you’ll need to assess all of your foodstuffs as well. While this can feel overwhelming, the end result will be worth it! Get started by:
- Pull everything out of your cabinets and drawers and take a full inventory of all the items you have.
- Throw away expired items or spices you have no intention of using.
- Make a list of the items you have to toss so you can restock with fresh ingredients the next time you go to the store.
- Do a thorough deep clean of all the nooks and crannies that are ordinarily too crowded to really scrub. You could also take this time to replace old drawer and shelf liners to give your kitchen a fresh, clean feel.
Now that you have a good idea of what kind of space you have and the items you definitely want to keep, it’s time to make a game plan. Take stock of the everything and how you want to organize them to best fit your needs in the kitchen.
Do you bake every weekend? Put your baking supplies front and center! Determine the number and sizes of containers you will need. If your kitchen is small, it may not be feasible to store items in bulk. Get smaller containers that take up less space and are easier to store so that you’ll have easy access when you need them.
Next it’s time for shopping! Look for containers that are functional but also match your kitchen’s style or feel. There are options available for all tastes – from country rustic to modern utilitarian. Besides containers, consider purchasing a lazy Susan, a spice rack, or baskets to further help you organize your kitchen. The ever popular mason jar is perfect for many different design ideas and will keep all of your ingredients fresh. Take great joy in donating all of your mismatched spice jars and outdated containers!
Once you have your containers, it’s time to get busy labeling. Blue Bee Printing offers many options for custom labels so you can get the exact look you are going for.
