Piled-up pots and pans, plastic containers without a lid in sight and something called a “junk drawer” are all tell-tale signs that your kitchen could use a little bit of organizing.
Organizing your kitchen may seem like a big, time-consuming task to tackle, but in the long run, it’s likely to save you time and could help prevent the possibility of fire damage.
Most of us have one of these: a “catch-all,” a place to store those items that don’t quite fit in a home anywhere else, best known as a “junk drawer.” Sometimes these drawers get so crammed, they constantly jam. The first step to organizing this part of your kitchen is to purge everything you don’t need, and be realistic about whether or not you will really use it. Once you’ve narrowed down the items, add in some storage solutions that will help you keep the space tidy. Depending on the size of the items in the drawer, consider using an ice cube tray to sort out little items. For larger items, drawer organizers can be found at most box stores or dollar stores.
Cleaning and organization techniques can both play a part in keeping your kitchen neat, tidy and free from fire damage.
