  • 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.
    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.
