Ask yourself these simple questions. How often do I use this item? If regularly used doesn't come top of mind, then toss the item into the garbage or put aside to give to charity. Also, for multiples of the same thing, ask yourself how many do I use? Recently, I found I had multiple wooden spoons, four of them in fact; I really only use 2 of the 4 - why keep 4 when 2 are used? So I put them in a give away pile for charity, in my case Value Village.
There are some great drawer organizers for your kitchen organizing solutions. I personally like the 2 tiered kind with the top used for cutlery and when its pushed back you have a second layer below for other things. For cooking utensils you can either put these in an upright holder on your counter by your stove to help declutter and expand your drawer space or, if you have the drawer space keep them in a drawer.
The first step in organizing your kitchen is to take inventory on all of the appliances, cookware and utensils you have. Think about the last time you used each item and ask yourself if you will be using it in the future. If your answer is no, you should remove the item from your kitchen and give it to a charity, family member or friend. Look especially at small appliances such as a waffle maker.
Besides being able to hold our clutter and enabling further disorganization, having messy kitchen drawers can waste time as we scour through them in search of the one thing that we need. By being disorganized, the drawers also hide duplicates and make getting rid of kitchen clutter more difficult; if we cannot lay everything out and see what all we have we are more prone to keeping everything in the drawers and trying not to worry about it - but we can fix this quickly and easily!
Organizing the lower kitchen cabinets is a more challenging process. Items can be hard to see and hard to reach, and space is typically limited. To maximize this space, consider purchasing a sliding cabinet drawer as it will help you reach items that are difficult to find. Additionally, you can purchase three-tier cabinet shelving and mount it to the inside of the cabinet; this will give you extra storage.
