Besides cleaning food within your cabinets and refrigerator throwing out duplicate or broken items can also help create more space.
2) Sort Items: To make it easier to find the things you need, you should group together everything in your kitchen. Put your cooking items, baking items, and glassware in their respective groups.
3) Organize Storage Containers: Storage containers after a while can become a complete mess. The plastic container is great for leftovers but if you don’t stay on top of them you can end up with unneeded clutter. Find all plastic containers and lids and keep them together. If you have containers without lids, they throw them away.
4) Try Using Vertical Space: Taking anything within your cabinets and storing them in a vertical space can clear up a lot of extra room. Some options include:
- Placing hooks under cabinets to hold mugs
- Adhesive hooks on the inside of pantry or cabinet doors to hold measuring cups, oven mitts or kitchen gadgets
- Wall space and ceiling rack for pots & pans
5) Sort Papers: Floating extra papers within a kitchen can cause for a lot of kitchens clutter. A magnetic sorter box to hang on your refrigerator is great for coupons, menus, notepads and other papers which tend to find themselves on your kitchen counter top.
