How’s your kitchen? Does everything have its place? Well, this month, your challenge is to get your kitchen organized! I mean really organized – not just cleared countertops.
First, go through the following Areas/Zones in your home and look at the areas with a fresh eye. Pretend you are a stranger that was staying in your home and wanted to make dinner. Will you be able to do those tasks easily? What struggles do you encounter?Then, ask your kids and partner to go through the kitchen and see if they can find other obstacles that stops them from finishing the task at hand. Is there anything else they want to change?
From the results of the task above, write down the problem areas in your kitchen in order of importance to you and your family.
Now it’s time to get down to business and organize this kitchen!
Below are my posts and fellow Professional Organizers posts to help you organize these kitchen areas.
Feel free to come back and visit these posts while you are organizing. Remember to take your time. It’s not important to go fast through the areas. It’s more important to organize the area completely and effectively.
