After you find out what you have in your kitchen cabinets, you will have to determine what to do with each item. This means deciding whether you will keep the item, throw it in the trash, or donate it to a local food bank. After that, you can decide where everything will go in your cabinets. You can do this by designating specific work zones in your kitchen. Take steps to avoid clutter by imagining that your shelves should be as clean and accessible as they are in the grocery store. This includes stacking items whenever possible and putting the shorter items in front of larger items. Above all else, you should be storing everything where it needs to go. This will help you to KEEP your kitchen cabinets organized long into the future!
