Kitchen Organizing Hacks for Lazy People

Kitchen Organizing Hacks for Lazy People was really written for me. Why? Because somehow my kitchen is never able to stay clean long.

“My life at home gives me absolute joy. There are some days when, as soon as you’ve finished cooking breakfast and cleaning up the kitchen, it’s time to start lunch, and by the time you’ve done that, you’re doing dinner and thinking, ‘There has to be a menu we can order from.'” – Julia Roberts

This year I decided to make a concentrated effort on organizing my kitchen and most importantly, keeping it that way.  When I started organizing the kitchen, I looked for some organizational tools that would help and I found some amazing things that would keep everything ship shape in no time.

You don’t have to use all of the ideas below, but if you start on a section of your kitchen at a time, pretty soon your kitchen will be a clutter-free environment.

Here is the Kitchen Organizing Hacks for Lazy People:

1) Cabinets.

If you’re like me, there’s never enough cupboard space.  The key is to optimize each cabinet’s space and make sure you’re using every square space.

Cutting Board Organization

Hold your cutting boards in an out-of-a-way-place like the back of your cupboard door.

I always keep my spices in one of my kitchen cupboards, and they were definitely one of the most annoying spots of my house. I have a large variety of spices and finding the right one would take several minutes every time I cooked.

I finally took the time to find shelves that would hold my spices and it made cooking so much easier.
