Organize Your Kitchen: Meal Planning

Organize Your Kitchen: Meal Planning

OK, I’ll admit it. Meal planning is not one of my strong points in the kitchen. In fact, it is probably one of my biggest headaches. I don’t mind grocery shopping, putting away the groceries or cooking but I can stand in front of a full fridge or pantry and not think of a single thing to make. It’s like my brain just freezes up. Can anyone else relate?

So what are some ways that others deal with this necessary daily task? Here are a few that come to mind.

Organize Your Kitchen: It's All About Location

Organize Your Kitchen: It's All About Location

When organizing your kitchen, it helps to treat your kitchen cabinets like prime real estate. In other words, it's all about location.

Keep the items you use the most, such as your every day dishes, on the lowest shelves of your top cabinets. Bulkier items like pots and bowls that you use a lot should occupy the front of your bottom cabinets. Items that you use really infrequently like a large platter you only use at Thanksgiving or the bread maker need to live in the highest cabinets. Another option for the infrequently used items is to store them in a hall closet or even in the attic. The things you use the most should be the easiest to get to on a daily basis.
