One of the things about having a well- organized kitchen is that people only have as many food containers as they really need. Clean up the overflowing pile of plastic containers and use the excess containers to organize the drawers where you store various cooking utensils.

7. Organize your freezer

Freezer-friendly recipes are very helpful, but there also comes a time when you need to throw away leftovers. Take a good look at your freezer and part with raw meats that have been in the freezer for a year, as well as questionable old leftovers. Then you'll have enough room to plan your meals with ice cube trays.

8. Get a handle on your spice cabinet

The best way to store spices is to avoid direct sunlight or heat sources (i.e. hide them in a cabinet or drawer). If your spice rack or spice cabinet is completely out of control, get rid of the old spices you'll never use and keep your favorites front and center.
