Kitchen Storage – A Universal Dilemma
Well, if any room in the house is almost guaranteed to have a lack of storage, I’d say the kitchen wins, hands down! It takes a little thought to figure out the best kitchen storage plan but it’s doable.
There are a couple of tricks you can employ to ease the situation but first and foremost, it’s back to that pesky “purge what you don’t really need” task.
I don’t know about you, but I have to confess to having a kitchen drawer filled with odds and ends…stray cookie cutters, a knife sharpener, jar openers, the odd canape knife, twist-ties, plastic forks or knives, straws, pencils, pens, a screwdriver, odd nails & screws…you get the idea.
If you’re like me, half of the pens in that drawer don’t even work…you scribble a little on a piece of paper and if it’s not working you just toss it back in the drawer. And when was the last time you used that knife sharpener?
My point is, that drawer could be put to MUCH better use!
