  • Underneath the gleaming countertops and inside the well-painted cabinets, all sorts of clutter are hidden in the kitchen. Many of us are guilty of stuffing everything inside drawers and cabinets to make cleanup easier and faster after cooking. But when do you deal with the mess? Probably the next time you’ll prepare another meal. The truth is it’s easier to cook and move around the kitchen if it’s organized and free from clutter.

    According to an article by Apartment Therapy, you need to get rid of certain items in the kitchen to achieve a streamlined space. These include old receipts, takeout menus, coupons, plastic containers that are gathering dust, cleaning supplies you don’t use, and other unnecessary items that are taking over your countertops. Once you’ve sorted through your belongings, the next step is to organize your essentials into the right bins, but you don’t need to spend thousands to create a picture-perfect cooking space!
