Organize By Frequency Of Use

Concentrate on how to use available kitchen space effectively rather than focusing on how to make the kitchen look larger. It can be a messy process to pull out an item at the back of the cupboard especially if the item is used regularly. Organizing condiments and groceries by frequency of use can save lots of hassle and time while making your kitchen look clean and crisp.

Trays & Baskets

This tip is extremely useful to organize loose, half open condiment packets and small bottles or boxes which have a tendency to go missing at the moment you need them the most! Organize them in a tray and the search ends there!

Label Everything

This might sound a little childish, but it's really helpful. Opening storage boxes and checking for items is time consuming and tiring and makes for an untidy kitchen. No one wants to set foot into a small untidy kitchen! Labeling items is a great way to know what you are picking without having to open a thousand boxes to check.

Above Counter Space

Do not limit storage space to below the counter, think upwards, add closed shelves above the kitchen counter for extra storage in your kitchen. Go right up to the ceiling if you need to!
