When we get ready to organize a space we should first define the items that we frequently use. These are the items we use every day. These items are vital to our wellbeing in some way, even if it is cooking a meal. These items should be placed in areas where we can easily access them
One of the greatest complaints we receive as organizers is about small appliances that are frequently used and a lack of storage and/or counter space to put them. We have a few solutions that may help.
First, clear out the cabinets. Let go of all the unnecessary items you have been storing. If it doesn’t serve a purpose in your life, allow it to serve a purpose in someone else’s life. Someone needs what you do not.
Second, use the walls! There are items such as spices, cooking utensils, pots and pans that may be hung on a wall or even from the ceiling. Utilizing wall space or ceiling space will free up your cabinet space for small appliances.
Third, if you have space above your cabinets, use it. You can use cute containers or baskets to hide items you use less frequently. These containers and/or baskets may be placed above the cabinets. This again will free up that valuable real estate in the cabinets for small appliances.
Remember this simple concept to help you have a better system in your space. If you can grab it quickly you save time and energy!
