Let’s face it- most of us are constantly on the go, and cleaning our kitchen tends to be the last thing we want to think about. That’s why organisation is so important! The easier it is for you to store all your kitchen items, the less messy the overall space will be- including that precious kitchen benchtop real estate. In this week’s blog, we’ve put together a list of three kitchen organisation hacks so that you can focus on the things that really matter.
Tip #1: Stack your silverware in the dishwasher next to its siblings
One of the simplest ways to make your life a little easier is to place your cutlery in the dishwasher according to its type- so spoons go with other spoons, forks with other forks and knives with other knives! This will save time when you’re unpacking later.
Tip #2: Make use of hooks
You know those adhesive, non destructive hooks you can buy from the supermarket? Well, these are a great way to store your things in the kitchen. From tea towels to measuring tools to shopping bags, there are so many possibilites.
Tip #3: Put a whiteboard on your fridge
Whiteboards are an amazing, time saving tool, and you can use them again and again! By hanging one on your fridge, you’ll have space to write shopping lists, daily schedules and other important information that you just can’t forget.
Tip #4: Store your chopping boards in magazine holders
Magazine holders tend to be pretty cheap, and easily purchased. But did you know that they make the perfect solution for storing your chopping boards on your kitchen benchtop while they’re not in use?
Tip #5: Store your cooking utensils by the stove
Another simple fix- by storing your cooking tools right next to the stove, you’ll never have to go hunting for that spatula again. This can also be quite aesthetically pleasing, with its rustic visual appeal.
