The kitchen is the most used room in our home. I generally have to 'reset' it several times a year. I tackled my pantry, cupboards and fridge. Everything is much more organized.
- Remove all food from pantry. Check dates and remove anything that has expired. Wipe shelves and put food back in pantry. Group like items together.
- Go through cupboards one by one. Remove every item from the cupboard. Wipe the shelves. Only replace items that you actually use. (I got rid of a small box of dishes!) Try to place your most used items where they are easily accessed. Clear away clutter and anything that doesn't belong.
- Remove all items from the fridge. Wipe shelves, drawers and door. Remove items that have expired and replace your items.
- Clean your oven. I like to make a paste with dish soap, baking soda and a little vinegar. It helps messes wipe clean and it doesn't have a terrible odour.
