Storage Idea for May

We all have a hard time finding a place for every thing. the closets are not big enough, there are not enough shelves for everything. The kitchen will not hold all the items I have. I know the story. I thought I had a big kitchen with lots of cupboards and lots of space. Then I go and fill it up with food, and dishes. you know the basic stuff we all have in our kitchens.

One thing I have learned to do over the years is when I go shopping, we call it big shopping one a month to every six weeks. When we come home we have to find a place to put everything. Well the tip for this month is when putting food away in your cupboards put the same type of food in the same area or cupboard. Put all the fruits together, as well as all the vegetables. Keep the pastas in the same area and not all over the kitchen. Keep the flour, sugar, and other baking items in the same location as well.

One reason is to know what you have at a glance. Second is you only have to go to one cupboard to get items for say baking and not have to go here, then go there to gather up all your baking supplies. Also makes for easier clean up, off to one cupboard and not two or three. 

It is spring time, clean and re organize you cupboards and your pantry. This is the best time to take every thing out, wipe down the cupboards, check for pests and discard old stuffs and find the empty boxes taking up space. Then put every thing of alike food stuffs away in the same area. Label the inside of the cupboards for what goes where. Some people label the outside the choice is yours. That way when you have "helpers" they know where things go when put away.

This is a simple but easy way to find extra room in your kitchen and your kitchen pantry.
