Today we are going to be doing cooking utensils.
Items you will need:
Phone/Clock: to set your 10 minute timer
Steps to declutter kitchen utencils
Step one: Gather all items in one place (I just used my counter, you can you your table, island where ever)
Step two: Have supplies handy
Step three: Declutter:
- Sort your items into categories of your choosing based on how you are going to organize them for example my categories are:
Baking Utensils (Whisks, Scrapping Spatulas Etc.
Cooking Utensils #1 (Tongs & Spoons)
Cooking Utensils #2 (Spatulas)
Specialized Utensils (hand grater, pizza cutter, ice cream scoop etc.)
- Go through each item
- If it is damaged (Garbage)
- If you have unnecessary multiples (Donate)
- Organize items into utensil holders and/or kitchen drawers
Step four: List- Create a shopping list for kitchen utensils you need & do not have.
