Organizing Quick Tip: Now is a Great Time To...

With the holidays just around the corner, now is a great time to declutter your kitchen! This week, take a few minutes each day to do a kitchen micro-clean up project. Here are some ideas to whet your appetite.

  • Wipe down the cabinet fronts and appliances to make your kitchen sparkle.
  • Go through the fridge, pantry or food cabinets and remove any expired foods.
  • Take inventory of the items in your freezer and make plans to use up the older items in the next few weeks, creating space for holiday cooking and baking.
  • Go through your food storage containers and match lids to containers. Clear out lidless containers, and container-less lids. (And while you’re at it, whittle down your collection if it’s gotten a bit out of control.)
  • Inventory your spices and baking supplies. Stock up on needed items in upcoming weeks—ideally when they go on sale.
  • Pull unnecessary items such as extra fast food drinking cups, dated (and un-loved) freebie coffee cups and mugs, and tattered dish towels from your drawers and cupboards.

Tackle these simple projects while you’re waiting for the pasta water to boil. Then, as you see progress (and love what you see), add to the micro-project list. Best of all, if you start now, your kitchen will be in ship-shape well before the holidays arrive!
