When looking at where you should organise first in your home, the kitchen is one of the first places that comes to mind. It is practical, essential and efficient to cook in a clean and organised kitchen.
ORGANIZATION IS A KEY
Cooking in an organised kitchen not only makes it easy and simple to find things when you need them but also provides a clean kitchen space. Here are some tips on how to efficiently organise your kitchen.
1. Start by planning out and creating labels:
In order to achieve an efficient and organised kitchen, it is crucial that you first plan out and label where you would like certain utensils, spices and cleaning necessities to be. Look around your kitchen as you plan out where you would like certain utensils and herbs to be, try and place the utensils somewhere accessible and easy to locate.
2. Clean out your kitchen:
If you want a clean and hygienic kitchen, it is extremely important that you throw away any expired foods. Ensure that there is no mould present in your kitchen, and if there is, immediately remove by combining half a cup of water and detergent to wipe it off.
3. Start organising:
Start sorting your kitchen bit by bit, place your forks, knives, spoons and chopsticks in separate sections for easy use. Place all your herbs, spices and oils in an easy to access drawer/cabinet. Sort your food in your fridge between meats, vegetables, fruits, dairy and poultry in order to avoid contamination.
4. Use containers and zip-lock bags:
Once you have organised your fridge, place any loose foods and leftovers in separate containers and zip-lock bags depending on the size. Label the expiry date or the date the food was placed in the containers. Ensure that you do not mix any leftover meats, vegetables or fruits together as it will result in cross contaminations.
Here are some tips on how to efficiently organise other spaces in your home.
1. File your documents
Before you begin, take any important documents such as government documents, birth certificates and passports and set them aside in a secure location. Once this is done, file the documents by category. For example, place all birth certificates, passports and important linking codes in one section for easier identification.
2. Sort your items
By using an eco-friendly sorting box or shelf, sort all your household objects in different sections. Place your electronic cables in one section, arts and crafts in the other and so forth. Use different coloured cabinets or labels for easier identification.
3. Clean out your home
Once you have filed and sorted most of your household items, throw away or replace any damaged or unnecessary items. See if you need any stationary items and if needed, purchase eco-friendly and sustainable pencils, books and pens. Ensure that any and all furniture are still safe to use and that there is no mould, and if there is, mix water and detergent in a spray bottle and remove accordingly.
4. Clean your bathrooms and bedrooms
When organising your home, ensure that you have everything that you may need in your bathroom and bedroom, this includes enough soap, toilet paper/tissue boxes, clean sheets and towels and any rugs that you may like to add. Throw away any old sheets that you may not need, freshen your room with oils and candles for a fresh and warm feeling.
