We all know the saying, “The kitchen is the heart of the home.” To put it simply; the kitchen is the room in every home where most people gather. Naturally, it becomes the messiest room as well. Here are three simple steps to keep your kitchen neat and organized!
1. Trash the Bag
Open bags lead to stale snacks and spoiled foods. Why not do away with all plastic bags? Besides for the constant mess of crumbs spilling through an open bag, your kitchen looks disorganized without the uniformity of food containers. Instead, find a solid container to arrange your food, preferably one that is tightly sealed. This will not only help keep your food fresh for weeks, but it’ll help with kitchen organization too! Your food will last longer, which means more time at home and less time at the grocery.
2. Invest in the Best
Don’t just store food in any container, because not every container is guaranteed to keep food fresh. What’s most important is to invest in containers that will ensure your food remain fresh for weeks! Your best bet would be to buy a food container that is vacuum sealed. The vacuum seal will withdraw air and moisture from each container. By creating a strong vacuum inside these food storage containers, microbial growth is greatly inhibited and bacterial cross-infection is minimized. Store food directly into your containers and feel safe every time you reach for a snack.
3. Think Ahead
While this tip seems to offer no physical solution, it’s more practical than you think! The best secret to an organized kitchen may very well be planning ahead. Whether it be preparing dinners, lunches, or snacks, properly arranging the day’s food is an essential part of remaining organized.
Here’s something practical—why not peel and cut fruits and vegetables and store them in the fridge overnight. This way, while the morning rush is happening throughout your home, your kitchen will be spared from all the mess. Simply arrange the day’s snacks on your countertop so that your family can choose which snacks they want to take with them that day. No more rush, no more mess.
