KITCHEN

Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER -

Des­ig­nate a place for each glass or item of crockery to live. Have a spe­cific drawer for tea tow­els, a shelf for bak­ing sup­plies and a place for each food type in the pantry. This can help to cre­ate or­der, and make it easy to re­turn things. Try us­ing trays, jars and con­tain­ers to sep­a­rate sauces from snacks and clean­ing sup­plies from pots and pans.

Keep larger items at the back of the fridge or pantry, and smaller items in front, so you can find things eas­ily. Sim­i­larly, store plates, pots and the like by size. You may also want to store items you use most at eye level, and those used less of­ten on higher or lower shelves.

Put the dishwasher on be­fore you go to bed, or be­fore you leave for work, to help keep on top of dirty dishes. Un­load it when you wake up or re­turn from work.

Write items on a shop­ping list when they are get­ting low, rather than wait­ing un­til they run out.
