The kitchen is often one of the rooms in the home that gets far more cluttered than others. After all, if you are someone who does a lot of cooking, you will have a lot of utensils, a lot of kitchen gadgets, and a lot of jars filled with various herbs and spices, in the kitchen space.

If that is the case, and you want to clear some of your kitchen’s clutter, here are a few tips to get you started.

Hire a dumpster

If you have a lot of clutter, then before you start addressing it, then you should look into dumpster rental. This will make it easier for you to dispose of anything you no longer need or want in a fast, fuss-free, and environmentally friendly way, which is so important.

Put a sticker on it

Go around your kitchen and put a sticker on any item you have not used in the past month in one color and any item that you think may be broken in another. This will make it easy for you to immediately dispose of broken blenders or bent spoons, and it will allow you to keep track of which kitchen items you rarely if ever use so that you can get rid of them too.

If you use an item that has been stickered, simply remove the sticker before the month is out and that will be a clear sign you have used it and therefore need to keep it. Everything that still has a sticker on at the end of the month can go in the dumpster.

Invest in mason jars

Large mason jars are great for organizing everything from dried herbs and spices to dried lentils and pasta and even things like toothpicks. The more of them you have, the easier it will be for you to safely store and organize the things you need to keep in the kitchen. Use sticky labels - chalk labels are great because you can repurpose them - to write down what is in each jar and your kitchen will be instantly more organized.

Clear the counters

Your kitchen counters should not contain anything that you do not use every day. So, if you only have toast at the weekends, put the toaster in a cupboard, or if you rarely use the knives in your block, store them safely away in a drawer instead.

Most of us are so used to leaving various gadgets out in the kitchen, but that just means there is less space or chopping and kneading and cooking up a storm, so by hiding those gadgets away, you can instantly create more space and a more clutter-free environment for your kitchen too.

Clutter-busting the kitchen, as you can see, may take a little time and effort, but it will be so worth it when your kitchen space is clean, clear, and much easier for you to navigate when cooking up a storm, so get in there and start busting that clutter right now!
