It’s week 4 of the Kitchen Organization Challenge and how to organize lower kitchen cabinets will show you reasons why organizing lower kitchen cabinets is important, step-by-step checklist, tips, and so much more.
Before I launched the Kitchen Organization Challenge, I have thoughtfully considered the number of weeks that it should run. Why I choose 7-weeks? It’s because I’m a firm believer in planning a day and time to organize a small space. With a busy schedule, it’s almost impossible to organize the entire kitchen in just a week. You see, I’m here to show you a long-term organizing system that works so that you don’t have to go back to the overwhelming clutter.
WHY ORGANIZE LOWER KITCHEN CABINETS
If you lack motivation, here’s why it’s essential to get the lower kitchen cabinets organized.
Saves You Money. With an organized lower kitchen cabinets you’ll no longer buy duplicates because you know what you already have.
Saves You Time. The need to hunt through cabinets becomes a history because you’ll know where everything is. Take the time to store every item appropriately in the space that works for you. It pays off!
Makes Cleaning Easier. When family members are used to items being in the same spot all the time, they will be more likely to put it back into its proper storage space.
WHERE TO PUT THINGS IN LOWER KITCHEN CABINETS
The basic rule is to keep pots, pans, and baking sheets near the stove. However, I’m here to say that there’s no one-size-fits-all strategy that applies to every home.
In fact, I’m the first one to break the basic rule. See below how I organized our lower kitchen cabinets.
