January is the month to get organized, as well as to simplify our minds and lives. For me, this means I start cleaning out my kitchen. After the holidays I find extra tools, pans, and books cluttering my cooking space. Those over sized pans are essential when serving the family come Christmas dinner, but during the rest of the year they just need to be packed away! I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I have too many seasonal dishes in my collection. Though some would argue, I know that I need them all!
After clearing out the non-essential dishes, I try to take inventory of what all is in my pantry. During the holidays I tend to by options and extra! Better to have too much than not enough. These organization pieces are great options to help you bring order to your kitchen and mind.
- Use these hyacinth woven baskets to organize the smaller items in your pantry. These beautiful baskets come in a variety of shapes and sizes making it easy to find the perfect fit for any cabinet or shelf! Attach erasable black chalkboard clip labels to these baskets for added ease.
- Even in the deepest of cupboards, when you group set canned goods on organizing racks, accessing goods becomes much easier. Especially when the wire racks have sliding drawers!
- Make adding spices to your cooking easier by storing your dried herbs and spices in these clever clamp-top jars. Better yet, display them on a tiered rack. I keep mine in the cabinet closest to the stovetop, that way they are never far from reach.
- Corral your favorite mugs, coffee, and teabags in a beautiful iron basket. A mug caddy is a great way to show off your favorite cups. By displaying your cups and setting the basket of coffee and tea beside them you create a bistro retreat within the comfort of your own home!
