Tuesday's Tip

Organize your kitchen with thought for where you use certain tools or ingredients, and not necessarily grouping like items together. For instance, if you bake frequently create a prep area with flours, dry goods, spices, and sugars along with measuring utensils stored together at this place. Sometimes this means even purchasing a second set of measuring cups or spoons, but the pay-off in easily reaching all necessary items for a quick batch of cookies will be a certain reward. Other examples are: combining a few coffee mugs, bean grinder, filter stash, and coffee/tea in one location immediately above your coffee maker for a faster cup of brew; housing most-used mixing bowls outside of their nested stack for quicker access during dinner prep; placing dishes where children who are helping with chores can reach them easily for setting the table, or unloading a dishwasher.

Think outside the box with your space, and you may find that it multiplies!
