Quick Tip Tuesday #18 - Cleaning out Cupboards

This week's tip is inspired by one of my kitchen cupboards that had become totally unusable.  Don't we all have a cupboard that drives us crazy every time we open it?  Last week, I tackled my most disorganized cupboard, and today I am sharing some helpful hints with you.

Here is how you can organize a cupboard in three easy steps:

Step 1 - Empty the cupboard, and give it a good cleaning.

Warning... it's going to get worse before it gets better.  lol

Step 2 - Purge.  Get rid of things you no longer use, and consider relocating items you don't use very often.  (e.g. I moved some of my rarely used cake pans into my garage.)

Step 3 - Organize.  Think about how you use the items, and organize them accordingly.  (e.g. I put my platters in the back, and I put my lunch containers close to the front.

I feel great now that this cupboard is usable again.  On to the next one!  :-)
