The first thing to do when organizing is to think of how you could make the space more functional. What things to you use all the time? What things only get used on special occasions or holidays?
- Separate the kitchen tools into two piles: Used all the time and rarely used. (Find a new home for rarely used items)
- Clean out the empty drawer and add the organizing containers.
- Don’t squeeze in too much, if its too tight it won’t stay organized.
I find that by using more of the vertical space I’m able to fit more things in my space.
Organizing used to seem like a lot of work to me, but I see how it makes my stuff more functional which makes it easy to keep it organized.
