The first step to de-cluttering is getting rid or donating any items you have lying around that you do not use, that are expired, or even past their best before date. Pull out all items that are overcrowding your cupboards and sort out items into piles, throw out, donate, or keep piles. This will help you get organized and realize what things you need to keep or throw away.
As for the fridge, take a good look at your open fridge and think about what is in it. This process is a great way to throw out old items and make room for the new! Decluttering and organizing your fridge will make it so much easier to find food items. The next step to an organized fridge is allocating certain sections of your fridge for different food groups. Fruit, vegetables, sauces, drinks and leftovers can all have their own section, making it that much easier to search for your next snack.
You might be a busy mom or dad and feel like every time you pick up one of your kids toys, another one shows up. Organize kids toys and crafts that are lying around and covering your kitchen surfaces. Why not allocate a cupboard (if you have room) to kids crafts and toys. This will get them off the tables and floors and will teach your kids to always clean up after themselves and to keep their toys together. Buy dollar store bins and label them to help sort out items and make it easier for your kids to find their toys.
