3 Simple Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Organised

Whether you have a large kitchen or a small one, keeping your kitchen organized can seem like an impossible task. Fortunately, this task doesn’t have to be overwhelming, even if you don’t have tonnes of time on your hands. Follow these tips and you can soon see results in the form of an organized kitchen that’s easy to navigate when you need to find something specific.

1) Clean as you go

Keeping a clean kitchen counter not only means it’s easier for you to prep meals, but it also creates an inviting, relaxing environment for your family. Whenever you’re finished cooking or cleaning up a mess, wipe down your kitchen counters and appliances immediately. You don’t have to go overboard with cleaning every surface every time (cleaning is so tedious!), but keeping your kitchen spic-and-span is key when trying to maintain a more organized space. Put things away: As soon as you finish using any ingredient pop it back from where you've got it from. When it comes to utensils - whether that be a knife, spoon or Tupperware— get it cleaned up and put it back in its rightful place.

2) Use drawers, sections and other organisational tools

A drawer divider is a quick and easy way to separate your utensils, cutlery and small tools. It’s also ideal for separating your large tools like ladles, pots, frying pans and spatulas into their own drawers, making it much easier to find what you need when cooking. To keep your pantry organised, build or buy shallow shelving that will allow you to see what you have at a glance. Finally, you can even use kitchen cupboards as storage for larger items. Simply add some hooks on shelves above or below other shelves so you can hang pots and pans from them. The extra hanging space makes a lot of sense if there are already hooks there because it means one less place for things to pile up!

3) Organization is all about habit

Even if you’re a first-time cook with a tiny kitchen, there are still plenty of ways to keep things organized. It starts with creating smart habits: Set up your fridge so that you can see everything at a glance and store ingredients in airtight containers so that food doesn’t get spoiled. Remember: There is no one perfect way to organise, especially when it comes to making cooking fit into your lifestyle and schedule. You can make whatever system works for you—just stick with it!


If you want your kitchen clean and organized, start with these simple solutions. When you’re preparing a meal, there are a lot of things that can stand in your way. By keeping organised, your kitchen can be ready to rock in terms of food preparation and much more.
