Trending on Remodelista: 5 Secrets to an Organized Kitchen

September 6, 2019

September isn’t just back-to-school season; it’s also back-indoors time to focus on some domestic chores. First up: Ready your kitchen for all the holiday cooking and lunchbox-packing you’ll be doing in the coming months. Here’s how to get it organized:

1. Go minimalist.

Take a page from this Brooklyn kitchenette and pare down the contents of your kitchen to just the essentials. You don’t need 10 different pots and pans (in fact, you need only five), and are you ever going to use that Spiralizer? Photograph by Matthew Robbins from Remodelista: The Organized Home. See 5 Space-Saving Ideas to Steal from a Brooklyn Kitchenette, Ikea Hack Included.

2. Think like a shopkeeper.

4. Get back-to-school supplies—for the kitchen.
