Organising your kitchen is a great way to declutter and gain a sense of achievement this spring! The change of season is always a good reminder to declutter and deep clean your kitchen, but if you’re not sure where to begin, we’ve listed a few tricks and tips below to help you get started.
Clean Out Your Pantry and Fridge
The first and most important step of any spring-cleaning project is to declutter! Start by taking everything out of the cupboards to check what you have on hand. We recommend doing a cull of any food items that have expired or you no longer use. Consider donating to hunger relief charities such as Foodbank, rather than disposing of good food… Now your cupboards are empty don’t forget to give the surfaces a good wipe down before reorganising.
Organise and Categorise Food Items and Products
Now that you’ve decluttered, it’s time to sort and create categories. A great way to organise your fridge and pantry is with our handy Organiser Trays! The clear trays are perfect as you can see exactly what you have on hand and can keep all like items together. They are BPA free as well as fridge and freezer safe, which means you can organise food with the peace of mind that you and your family are in safe hands. You can further enhance your kitchen organisation with our Modular Containers. They look great and are also great for organising pantry items.
Tips and Tricks for Organising your Fridge and Pantry
- Check the expiration date on all perishable food, don’t forget to check your freezer and the condiments shelf in your fridge! We often forget that even frozen food does eventually go off.
- Plan out your weekly meals to avoid food waste! This is going to eliminate the amount of food you have left over at the end of the week and keep you from spending on takeaway meals.
- Take the guesswork out of what to have for dinner by grouping ingredients together for ease and convenience! Having everything ready to go is a great way to save time in the kitchen and also quickly identify what you have on hand and what you might need to replace.
- Incorporate more storage into your kitchen! Having a dedicated space for everything is imperative to keeping your kitchen clean all year round.
Give Your Appliances Some Love
When was the last time you cleaned your oven? If you can’t remember, it may be time to give all your kitchen appliances a deep clean! This is a great way to take care of and maintain your appliances, which will in turn extend their lifetime and allow them to run more efficiently and safely.
Under Sink Storage
Another area of the kitchen that often turns into a bit of a dumping ground is the storage under your sink. Using our Modular Containers or Organiser Trays is a great way to separate and organise your soaps, cleaning gloves, dishwashing tablets, sponges and multi-purpose sprays you reach for on a regular basis.
