Today is Kitchen Tip Tuesday so please go to Tammy's Recipes for more kitchen tips.
I wanted to finish showing you some of the kitchen cabinets that I have organized.
My main tip in this process is to eliminate and concentrate! I have made sure that ONLY THE KITCHEN ITEMS that I use on a day to day basis are front and cener in all of my cabinets.
This picture shows one of the cabinets with pots and pans. These are the three frying pans I use most. These pans are pretty old and stained, but they still work great. :o) I Need to add scrubbing and soaking their outsides to the list! Maybe new ones will be on my shopping list soon. Just keeping it real for you!
In the back are two pots I use almost every day. I had an old plate rack that works perfectly for lids. Above all this on the shelf is the George Foreman Grill. Its big and heavy and I don't use it all that much. This shelf is large enough for it and yet its still easy to get it out when needed. I placed the two large frying pan lids on top of that for convenient storage.
This picture shows the two larger pots, two small pots and two colanders that I use nearly every day. Behind the two large pots is the crockpot. I don't use this every day, but do use it at least once or twice a week. Its in a convenient spot, but not in the front.
This is the corner cabinet where I store every day plates, bowls, and miscellaneous items. In the front are the ones used daily. There are many items that we don't use all that often in the very back of each shelf. I can still get to them if I need them without too much trouble, but the ones we use every day are easy to just grab and go. I used one coated wire shelf to separate some bowls and small plates.
It is amazing how much more I enjoy cooking and cleaning up the kitchen now that things are more organized and streamlined.
You can see other "after pictures" of my kitchen cabinets on the side bar.
Have a great Tuesday!
