Today we are going to be doing cooking utensils. 


Items you will need:

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.
