De-Cluttering Your Kitchen

Ahhhh Hello February!  It is time for a fresh start. I know usually people do this in January but I am not like most people……It’s a time for new resolutions, healthy habits, and clearing out your clutter. Don’t save spring cleaning until the spring: start your year off right by clearing your kitchen of all the unnecessary tools and appliances that you never use.  So do your drawers look like the right side or left side……The Container Store is a great resource for organization.

Seven different melon ballers? Probably too many. And when will you use that bread machine that’s been collecting dust for years? Probably never. One cook’s trash is another cook’s treasure, and many tools that are useless to one person are essential to another — However, in an effort to help you organize and simplify, I have rounded up a few recommendations to streamline your kitchen and de-clutter your life.
And remember — if something is in good condition, don’t throw it away! Find a local organization that accepts kitchen-related donations, and start your year off on a do-gooder note. Because we all like to pay it forward, even in the kitchen.
Single-Use Appliances and Tools
 – Appliances and tools with just one (often obscure) use may not be worthy of counter space. How often do you really use your panini press? Your quesadilla maker? Unless you’re a serious grilled sandwich afficionado, get rid of them. Never use your bread machine? Let it go. Giving up large or expensive appliances can be difficult — but if you’re not going to use it, you should pull the plug.
Examples: avocado slicer, apple corer, panini press,

The One Year Rule
 – Some people use their garlic press every day; some people think that owning one is useless. Kitchen tools and their necessity are quite the divisive topic! But in general, there’s just one cardinal rule: if you haven’t used it in a year, get rid of it. Exceptions should be made, of course, for what I call “big feast” cookware that you use every few years — like a Paella pan or a turkey frying pot. Family heirlooms fall into this category as well.  Above are some really odd gadget that i found and some basics I wouldn’t be with out.  Also check out West Elm Organization for some great little finds!
