The Kitchen

Two simple steps to declutter your kitchen to create an easy flow in your workspace.

My kitchen is the heart of my home. I like imagining my love radiating throughout the house, carried by the smells of delicious, nurturing food. When I cook, I like to have the things I use most right at my fingertips and not get distracted by excess gadgets or appliances. 


The first step to organizing a kitchen is decluttering. How many salad spinners does one family need? Who likes scrambling through jammed utensil drawers or digging for pot lids at the back of a cabinet? 


Here are two simple steps you can take to bring ease and order to your kitchen:



  • Move appliances and items/gadgets that are rarely used to a closet nearby, or donate them to Goodwill.


  • Optimize efficiency by categorizing and placing things you use together, within easy reach, like putting spices next to the stove or storing knives near cutting boards. 


Having organizational systems designed around how you use the space creates an easy flow in the workspace. It’s remarkable how simply eliminating excess and placing items you use most often within easy reach make it so much more enjoyable to work in the kitchen.
