Save counter space
Hang paper towels or dish towels under or on the side of your cupboard instead of on your counter to save yourself the clutter. If you have room in your pantry or cabinet, use it for small appliances you don’t use daily. Store cutting boards in a cabinet with enough vertical space or upright against the backsplash.
Keep it simple
Store your frequently used items in an easy to access spot near where you will need them. Keep your spices in a cabinet or drawer near the cooking or preparing food. If you have space keep your mixing bowls, baking sheets, and other baking tools on one shelf and your pots and pans on another shelf so whether you cooking or baking everything is organized.
