31 Days to a Clutter Free Life: Day 11

31 Days to a Clutter Free LifeIf you are following along with the Living Well Spending Less 31 Days to a Clutter Free Life, today you are cleaning out and organizing your kitchen cabinets.  I keep my kitchen cabinets organized by grouping items by similar use (glasses with coffee cups, for example) and by grouping things by how often they are used.

That last part is an essential for me.  By keeping items that are used less often separate from the things you use daily or weekly, you avoid having to sort and search around those lesser used items to find the more frequently used items.  If you have to move the griddle that you use twice a month every time you get the crockpot out that you use once or twice per week, you are going to feel like your cabinet is cluttered and unorganized.

I also use just a few accessories for organizing my kitchen cabinets and maximizing the space I have available.  Here are a couple of examples.

Use small wire shelves to add storage space.

Kitchen Cabinets

Use small wire baskets for organizing lids.

Kitchen Cabinets

Use modular storage containers for organizing smaller items.  These are Modular Mates by Tupperware, but you can use similar containers.

Kitchen Cabinets

Use tiered shelves for smaller items, like spices or canned goods.

Kitchen cabinets easily get cluttered with a bunch of unneeded gadgets and containers.  If you feel like these things are taking over your cabinet space and making it hard to find the things you use every day, it might be time to consider a kitchen cabinet purge.  Sort through and either sell or donate items that you hardly ever use, that you dislike, or that you are only keeping because you feel obligated.  Don’t hold on to gadgets that perform a task that you can easily do without it!

What do you think? Ready to join in on the 31 Days to a Clutter Free Life??  If so, go here and get started!  It’s not too late to cut the clutter!
