I sat down to take a break and started to read the Martha Stewart Living Magazine October issue when I saw this kitchen. The article titled Secrets to a Hardworking Kitchen was chock full of inspiring images and great storage solutions. Here are some of my favorite tips and most were exactly what I did this week:
"Keep your kitchen clutter-free by going through it once a year-the run-up to the holidays is a great time. Put away or donate what you don't use." ~Lorna Aragon, home editor
"Keep cooking oils, salt, pepper, favorite spices, and key utensils within arm's reach of the stove. Use a tray to keep things looking neat and catch drips. Keep like utensils together in crocks. Store salts in open containers to easily grab a pinch."
"...do some creative shopping, looking not just at housewares stores but at office-supply stores for organizers that would bring order to storage area."
