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.

Label Everything

Above Counter Space
