  • January is always one of the two times per year I completely empty cabinets, drawers, pantry, fridge, freezer, etc. It will take me all month probably but so pleased when it's done.
  • I gave up on organizing my pantry or fridge. My wife helps me with my weight loss... but has no concept of organizing a pantry or fridge. As soon as I organize things she can whirlwind it right back into a mess ha ha... So, no worries, it will stay a mess... Such is life. :)
  • It's taken a while but my kitchen is ready to roll. All items in inventory, new Tupperware in pantry. Looks fab.
  • I already had done most of these things but I really need to clean off my dining table, it's become a dumping ground. And I do eat at the coffee table, I know that's not the best.
  • the kitchen is DH's domain, as he's the chef. I do breakfasts sometimes . . . but he designed and built the kitchen himself, and it is so well organized . . . same with the refrig. I am SO blessed!
  • This article came just at the right time since I've got the bug for spring cleaning!
  • I haven't unpacked from moving. Somehow I believe someone is trying to give me a hint! ;)
  • Most of my stuff is in good order but that kitchen table? PLEASE! I wish I had one! My kitchen is streamlined out of necessity- it's a cramped NYC apartment kitchen. I'm just lucky I have a functioning (and full sized) stove!
  • Will go through my spices and herbs today and reorganize them. Everything else is in good order.

    I do this periodically anyway. In the process once again cleaning, pitching and having a good time. when my kitchen is organized, I am happy happy:)
  • Criticism: unrefined grain doesn't mean "unnatural grain." Should we start eating nuts in the shell? Eat avocados with the peel on? :)

    That said, many of the other suggestions in the article sound like good ways to motivate someone to stick to their calorie goals. And I really should clean my kitchen!
  • That's funny to see this article today. This morning I just organized my pantry. Thanks for the validation it was a good thing to do.
  • our kitchen is next on the list to "re-do". These are great suggetions.....I can't wait for an expanded kitc hen.
  • JANETEMILY
    I've had my kitchen organized like this for years. (I have three drawers for utensils, most often used are right next to the stove). I also keep a "freezer inventory" list of meats on the door, so I know how many packages, and which cuts of chicken, beef, shrimp, etc. are inside. This helps when deciding what I need to buy, especially if there is a good sale. (Like, this week Harris-Teeter has chicken breasts BOGO). Also, when organizing the pantry and shelves, consider adding extra shelving to go UP. I have 3-tier riser shelves on two shelves of my pantry to store cans, spices, etc. and they are easier to see. Also, if your pantry has a regular door (not a bi-fold), you can get special door racks that will hold a LOT of items.
  • I'll put up a fight over the TV. It makes meal prep for the week bearable. I'd never finish if it weren't for the TV.
