Spring Cleaning: 3 Tips For Managing Messy Kitchen Cabinets And Drawers

What’s lurking behind those closed cabinet doors and drawers? On the surface, your kitchen may look immaculate after Spring Cleaning, but if you did not tackle the inside of your kitchen cabinets and drawers, you really haven’t done a deep clean. Here are some helpful tips and storage solutions for managing messy kitchen cabinets and drawers.

Start fresh.

If it’s been a while, take everything out and wipe down the inside of your kitchen cabinets and drawers with a damp rag to remove any dust. Dry thoroughly. Do one cabinet or drawer at a time to avoid a huge pile up on your countertops, and don’t forget the pantry!

Assess what could be better.

Are you wasting vertical space by not stacking glasses? Are everyday items stored out of reach on the highest shelf? Are the utensils stored far away from the kitchen table? Are your pots and pans difficult to get to? Are unlike items mixed together without any rhyme or reason? Look carefully, take notes, and make adjustments where necessary.

Manage the mess.
