For most of us the kitchen is the most used room in the house. Even if you’re like me and not crazy about cooking … we still have to eat! And that means I find myself in our kitchen A LOT. Very rarely do I hear someone say “I just have too much space in our kitchen.” So for most of us that means being creative with the space that we have and being thoughtful with our approach to organizing our kitchen items.

After searching the web, here’s the 5 best kitchen organization tips I’ve loving right now!

1  Organizing Recipes & Cookbooks

While I’m not a great cook (or even a GOOD cook), I do like to collect easy to make recipes. Anytime I’m flipping through a magazine and see something good, I’ll hold on to it for another time. I love how Sarah not only organized all her recipes with these pretty labels, but has a great way to showcase them on her counter!

2 Effective Command Center

For whatever reason paper and clutter always end up in the kitchen. Always! I’ve tried so many different ways to avoid allowing paper to enter the kitchen, but it seems impossible. Apparently paper BELONGS in the kitchen! That’s why having a command center that works for you and your family is so important. Sarah at Must Have Mom! came up with a gorgeous command center that not only looks awesome in her kitchen, it helps keep her family of 6 organized!

3 A Great Utensil Drawer

I truly believe kitchen drawers show how organized (or not organized) a kitchen is. It’s so easy to cram as much as possible in to a drawer that no one will likely see. Kati at Houseful of Handmade came up with the MOST creative way to organize her kitchen drawers that I’ve ever seen! She’s got an easy to follow tutorial to make this organizing project a breeze.

4 A Fridge Organization System

For some reason messy fridge seems to be synonymous with messy kitchen! Find out how to turn your fridge from the photo below to the clean AND organized fridge we all want.

5 A Perfectly Organized Pantry

Pantries are another place that’s easy to get messy quick. Heidi from Honey Bear Lane has an amazing 10 step organizning process to get your pantry in tip top shape. Plus, just look at how PRETTY hers is!

We all know that person. That person who’s house is completely clean, every item in the house has a home, every dish is washed, every pillow is fluffed. We tell ourselves that her home is ONLY that clean because she spent all day cleaning for her  guests. Then we secretly hope there’s at least room in her home that is way too messy to show off.

We can either hate the girl that has the perfectly clean home OR we can be that girl.

Now my home isn’t perfectly clean, often times far from it. (I always have THAT room where the door is always shut because it’s such a mess inside). Yet, overtime I’ve learned tips & tricks to give the biggest bang for my buck as far as cleaning goes. Because let’s be real, who has time (or interest) to spend all day cleaning?

For the busy girl that doesn’t want to spend every last minute cleaning her home, here are the top 10 secrets of busy girls who always have a clean home:

Start and finish laundry in the SAME day. Nothing screams ‘there’s still more cleaning to do’ than laundry sitting out overflowing waiting to be cleaned or cleaned laundry waiting to be folded up and put away. Sometimes I don’t hear my laundry machine go off when a load is done, so I often set my phone alarm to remind me (since I ALWAYS have my phone on me!).

There’s SO many laundry systems out there that you can follow. Regardless of your system, don’t leave laundry unfinished!

2 Do your dishes. Honestly, your kitchen can be spotless with not a crumb in site, but if there’s dirty dishes in the sink your kitchen automatically looks messy. Yes, it’s easy to leave the dishes in the sink thinking you’ll clean them the next day. Deep down you know it’s NEVER easier to clean the dishes the next day. Just clean them NOW!

The new Palmolive® Fusion Clean™ dish liquid is made for tough cleaning challenges. It’s ultra concentrated and can even dissolve 24 hour stuck on food for those days that you just don’t get to the dishes in time! I’m loving this Fusion Clean™ Baking Soda & Lime version … combining baking soda & scents of lime for a Modern Twist on Cleaning, It’s also available in Baking Soda & Grapefruit. Swing on over to your local Kroger store to pick yours up. Keep an eye out for a $0.25 any Palmolive® product coupon coming soon!

3 Keep cleaning supplies handy. It’s hard enough to keep a house clean, don’t make it harder. I keep all purpose cleaner & paper towel under each bathroom sink. Now there’s NO excuse to not wipe down the counter when it looks dirty. Palmolive dish detergent is always right at my sink.

If you have to haul your cleaning supplies throughout the house, you’re much less likely to use them!

 

4 Speaking of counters .. do the important things each day. Everyone has those things that you need to do each day to make your home look cleaner. Whether it’s putting ‘front door area’ clutter away or wiping off the counters. Make sure to do THAT thing. You know it make a huge amount of difference.

5 If it’s not working, CHANGE IT. Everyone has a different system that works for them. Yes, it’s great to search Pinterest for cleaning inspiration, but no one knows your schedule and lifestyle better than you. What one person says they do every evening, for example, may not work for your schedule. Don’t force a game plan that isn’t working. There’s no shame in changing what doesn’t work!

Invite someone to your home. We all have those times where our home is just a mess for too long. We ignore it or pretend it doesn’t exist. Put the pressure on yourself to get the house clean periodically by inviting friends over. As much as we might deny it, we all like our home to be clean for guests. I even joke with my girlfriends that I’m inviting them over for selfish reasons to motivate me to clean. My motto “whatever works!”

7 Clean as you go. You knew this one was coming. Cooking up a storm one weekend day? Clean up those dishes THAT day! Doing some big art projects at your house? Put away the supplies after you’re finished. Walking in the front door? Hang up your coat in the closet instead of laying it on the couch. Now you don’t have to do huge weekend cleaning sessions for little things that could have been done ALMOST seemlessly during the week. Save your big cleaning sessions for real deep cleaning (like cleaning out your fridge or mopping the floors)

8 Have a ‘junk drawer’. No matter how much we try to put every item in it’s correct place all the time, there’s those days where you just want to shove all your ‘stuff’ away quickly and deal with it later. Whether it’s a junk drawer or decorative baskets, it’s OK to have a place to store stuff that you just don’t want to deal with today! Plus it makes cleaning up for house guests much easier!

9 Set aside time each day. There’s no magic formula that cleans your house without you putting in some work in to it (well, unless you’re hiring someone to clean it for you). So many of us wait until we have huge chunks of time to clean. Yet, you can make some serious cleaning progress even if you have 5 minutes. While I was waiting for Joe to finish his breakfast before we took Reagan to the dog park, I spent a couple minutes tidying up our front closet.

10 Exercise. OK so this last tip doesn’t actually make your house clean, BUT I find that cleaning is the ultimate workout, especially if you put hand and leg weights on while you clean. While its definitely not fashionable, it does give you a great workout! A clean house + enough calories burned to skip the gym? Sounds good to me.

I love the look of our house POST spring cleaning, but dread the process. Don’t we all? So instead of gearing up for one big cleaning weekend each year, I do a little cleaning more regularly. Here’s the top 5 areas that I keep clean throughout the year that make the biggest difference.

1 Cleaning the Fridge | I HATE HATE HATE cleaning our fridge. The best way around it? Have someone (or something) do it for you. I LOVE Fridge Coasters, not only because of the fun print (there’s lots of neat options on their site), but because it’s the ultimate solution for spills, drips and build up in your fridge!

Read our 5 easy tips to a clean kitchen without a huge spring cleaning! Keep your fridge extra clean with a free giveaway from Fridge Coaster!

Fridge Coasters are super absorbent liners that fit in any fridge, no matter the type or manufacturer. Put these in high traffic areas like under the produce in the crisper or under the salad dressings in the doors. These absorb moisture drips and spills that mysteriously and inevitably occur in the fridge!

The special material pulls out moisture from spills, allowing the spill to completely dry. This means no more scrubbing, spraying or even scratching spills off your fridge!

2 Toaster Tray | I’m not sure if this is the official name?? Hmmmm. I’m also not sure why it’s so dang hard to find one of these, but there’s definitely a gap in the market! Even though my toaster technically has a built-in tray on the bottom of it, crumbs still find themselves all over the counter and in the cabinets. My solution? After measuring the diameter of my toaster, I found this small tray that fit perfectly underneath. The toaster NEVER goes anywhere without it’s tray. And the crumbs don’t either!

3 Dirty Towels | I’m still at a loss as to WHY Joe & I go through SO many towels and rags in our kitchen (I’d like to think it’s because of how amazingly clean our kitchen is 🙂 ), but at any given time we’re swimming in dirty rags. Until now I had two options: keep them in the kitchen or put them on top of our washer. Neither was attractive and both options were used way too much. Then one rainy Seattle Saturday (which is really EVERY Saturday in the winter) I had too much time on my hands looking for another DIY project to tackle. These cute canvas bags are hung on the back of our pantry door. Dirty rags are officially out of site!

4 Keep the Dishwasher Clean | EVERYTHING goes in our dishwasher. EVERYTHING. I’ve learned the hard way why some items clearly state that they are NOT dishwasher safe. Whether it’s my love of dishwashers or hatred of doing the dishes, I’ll let you decide. If you’re using your dishwasher as much as I am, you may start seeing a film on your plates and dishes if you don’t clean it regularly.

A quick and easy solution just needs bleach and vinegar. In your empty dishwasher, place a bowl with beach on the bottom shelf. Run the dishwasher on a hot cycle skipping the dry cycle. Repeat the process replacing the bleach with a cup of vinegar.

5 Coffee Maker | Got 5 minutes? That’s literally ALL you’ll need to ensure your coffee maker is sparkling clean. As someone who can likely out drink anyone in daily consumption of coffee, I was embarrassed that I couldn’t remember the last time I cleaned my coffee maker. Vinegar is always a popular way to clean, but having spoiled too many cups of coffee with that lingering spell and taste, I’ve got my own recipe that I’m happy to say works just as well!

The only thing I enjoy more than organizing is saving money! Yet, with our busy schedules, it’s so easy for Joe & I to run out the door without packing our lunch. It always seems like so much work in the morning! This means that we’re having to buy lunch at work which is definitely NOT saving money.Lunches prepared in minutes with your own lunch prep station with one cabinet and a little room in your fridge! Preparing lunches has never been so easy!

Well, the truth is that packing lunches USE to be a lot of work. I never seemed to have the right groceries for our lunches, but in attempting to always pack our lunch, Joe would get odd left overs in his lunch each day. Let’s just say it was a surprise that he wasn’t excited about 🙂 .

After several complaints from Joe about the quality of his lunches, I finally admitted he was right. The lunches weren’t good and I needed a better system to ensure that we had the right food AND it was quick to pack up in the morning.

Lunches prepared in minutes with your own lunch prep station with one cabinet and a little room in your fridge! Preparing lunches has never been so easy!

The first thing I needed to do was actually get our lunch food. In Washington, Oregon & Idaho, Walmart has these fun displays of NABISCO snacks. I find it helpful to have a lot of snacks on hand at home (whether for lunches or just snacks) so I stocked up. The NABISCO display station was right near the check out and had baggies available to use when stocking up!

Lunches prepared in minutes with your own lunch prep station with one cabinet and a little room in your fridge! Preparing lunches has never been so easy!

There’s 10 different snacks to choose from, including my favorite, TEDDY GRAHAMS Graham Snacks.

Lunches prepared in minutes with your own lunch prep station with one cabinet and a little room in your fridge! Preparing lunches has never been so easy!

Never lacking a reason to label, I found these cute bathroom bins to add pocket labels to for snack items and breakfast. On plain card stock paper I printed my ‘snacks’ & ‘breakfast’ labels, cut according to the size, and put them inside the pocket labels. You could use stronger adhesives, but I actually just used scotch tape to adhere the label to the bin! (They’ve stayed put for weeks!)

Right now I have TONS of custom oatmeal packs for breakfast! Joe & I RARELY eat breakfast at home (I value sleep too much to get up earlier 🙂 ), so breakfast in the office it is!

Lunches prepared in minutes with your own lunch prep station with one cabinet and a little room in your fridge! Preparing lunches has never been so easy!

Next step was to clear out space in one cabinet specifically for our lunch prep station. This prevented me from opening EVERY cabinet in our kitchen looking for what I needed. I put small sandwich bags, plastic containers (reused lunch meat containers) and lunch bags on the top shelve and my ‘snack’ and ‘breakfast’ bins on the bottom.

Lunches prepared in minutes with your own lunch prep station with one cabinet and a little room in your fridge! Preparing lunches has never been so easy!

Now on to the fridge. I keep all my produce for lunch in one drawer within my fridge. I know I know, apples don’t need to go in the fridge! It’s just so much easier to have everything in one spot! Dinner leftovers are kept kept in individual containers right above the drawer so we can quickly grab everything for lunch. It’s easy for Joe & I to always know where within our sometimes messy fridge that we can find food for lunch!

With all the pieces now in place, compiling all the items for our lunch in the morning has never been easier! It would be really easy to prep lunch for the whole week on Sunday night, but with this system it takes only MINUTES each night to prep tomorrows lunches!

Running out of the house with a coffee in hand, grabbing an apple (or piece of candy!) as I dash out the door on the way to work ….. do you know the feeling?

No matter what time I go to bed at night, I never want to get up any earlier that absolutely necessary, so making a warm breakfast in the morning is completely out of the question. As much as I LOVE my make-ahead-of-time breakfast sandwiches, Joe & I needed to change up our breakfast menu. Wanting to turn our breakfast in to a bloggable project (along with pretty much everything else in our life), I decided to use up all that oatmeal Joe bought months ago in to a months worth of flavorful oatmeal packets.

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!

I loved that I was able to make these ahead of time so that we have a quick, yet delicious, breakfast any time and anywhere (easy to make at work).

Ingredients

  • Oats
  • Salt
  • Oat bran
  • brown sugar (optional)
  • Your choice of dried fruit, nuts and chocolate
  • Plastic lunch bags
  • Permanent marker

(After re-reading this post Joe pointed out that lunch bags & markers probably shouldn’t be listed under “ingredients”. Oops!)

Once you have everything pulled out, the first step is to make the plain oatmeal packets. I made a LOT of these (arrr… 30??). Since these aren’t going to go bad anytime soon, I figured I might as well stock up! Simply combine:

  • 1/2 cup 1 minute oats
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons oat bran (to add fiber)

in to each of your plastic sandwich bags. If you’re someone who likes things a little sweeter, add a teaspoon of brown sugar!

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!

Now the fun part starts…..

I pulled out all my dried fruit, nuts and chocolate and CHOPPED them all up in to smaller pieces. Below are some of the ones I chose.

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!

Before you start combining your ingredients, make sure to label each of the plastic bags with the ingredients you’re adding. That way they’ll be NO surprises when eating your breakfast. I made the mistake of not labeling before I gave one to Joe for breakfast. He wasn’t exactly thrilled with my banana chocolate chip concoction that I made (it was delicious by the way 🙂 ).

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!

Some of my favorite combinations:

cranberry & apricot

banana & chocolate chips

coconut & papaya

cranberries & almonds

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!For the ‘toppings’, I add a small handful into each oatmeal packet (at least 2 tablespoons of each – I don’t skimp on these!).

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!

I’m definitely not the biggest health nut, but a nice added bonus of making these as opposed to buying in the store is that these are a lot more healthy & have WAY less sugar in them (assuming you skip my banana and chocolate one)! Another bonus is that you get the exact flavors you want. Ever notice how there’s ALWAYS one packet in the assorted flavors pack that no one likes? (brown sugar & maple syrup anyone??)

Make a month's worth of breakfast in only 30 minutes with these make-ahead-of-time oatmeal packets tutorial in a variety of flavors!

Simply add 2/3 cup hot water in a bowl with your oatmeal packet.

May you be able to sleep in as long as possible & still have time for a great breakfast!

My most popular party appetizer is also amazingly easy and only needs a couple of ingredients. Whip it up in no time for your next party!

Anytime I bring a homemade food item over to a party, I panic that no one is going to eat it. In fact, I’m typically the one having 5 servings of my dish just to make it appear popular (and edible).

On the contrary, one of my best friends Alison is a not only a natural host but an amazing cook as well. She makes it all appear effortless as she’s opening her oven pulling out something amazing right as the guests arrive. And to top it off her husband makes the best cocktails. They’re literally the most perfect party hosting couple ever.

Meanwhile at my house before a party I’m running around like crazy, unnecessarily cleaning areas that guests will never see, making Joe fix my destroyed concoction in the oven, and likely with a glass of wine to calm my nerves.

I asked Alison to share her recipe for her famous bacon wrap appetizers. This is probably my favorite party appetizer ever especially because it’s so simple to make!

INGREDIENTS

  • Bacon
  • Whole water chestnuts
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • Toothpicks

My most popular party appetizer is also amazingly easy and only needs a couple of ingredients. Whip it up in no time for your next party!INGREDIENTS

Cut bacon strips in half, roll chestnuts in bacon and secure with toothpick. Place on a  cookie sheet (with a lip for grease) and bake at 350 degrees for 45 min-1 hour until bacon is crisp.

Mix  mayonnaise, brown sugar and hot sauce. Pour over cooked wraps!

May you appetizer be so popular that you never have to chow down on it again!

Quick and easy homemade streak free window cleaner, just two ingredients! No more expensive name brands when you can make it yourself!

Quick and easy homemade streak free window cleaner, just two ingredients! No more expensive name brands when you can make it yourself!Because this Fast Fix Friday is SO fast, there’s two today!

Homemade Streak Free Window Cleaner AND an All-Purpose Cleaner

I like these not only because it’s so easy & cheap, but also I LOVE the idea of matching labeled spray bottles instead of different shaped ones regular cleaning sprays come in (more on that at the end of the post).

Streak Free Window Cleaner

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 tsp. blue Dawn dish soap (I’ve used other kinds, but Dawn seems to work the best!)

All Purpose Cleaning Spray 

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Borax natural detergent (find this at your local grocery store in the laundry aisle)

Quick and easy homemade streak free window cleaner, just two ingredients! No more expensive name brands when you can make it yourself!

For both recipes combine the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake to mix.

Now on to my favorite part: matching bottles & labels.

I found these spray bottles on Amazon and really liked them. They’re sturdier than the typical spray bottle. The tall and narrow design fits under my sink better than traditional bulkier odd shaped sizes. You could put any type of labels on these bottles, but I prefer these waterproof ones. Now I question whether these would last if I submerged in to water, but I can tell that they’re made of a stronger more ‘plastic-y’ material. I’ve used them daily (well… maybe 🙂 ) for over a year and the labels still look like new.

Now there’s no excuse not to clean the windows!

Not being the cook in the family I don’t often reach for the spices, but my husband does regularly. Fortunately my love for organizing trumps my confusion in the kitchen.

I hated the way our spice containers were all different shapes & sizes and in those rare occasions where I use them, it would take a long time sifting through to find the spice I needed.

http://musthavemom.com/2016/06/5-ways-ipads-can-increase-work-productivity.html

This rolling end cabinet that the spices were in wasn’t working either, so I cleared out a drawer for the spices.

My two priorities with this project were to have matching containers and easily identifiable labels.

SUPPLIES:

STEPS:

First step is to create the new labels, which will go on the lid of each new spice jar. This Spice Container Labels word document download is what I used for my Container Store clear spice jars in the link above. I made a label for each of the spices I currently had (many of which I couldn’t even pronounce!).

Print these on label sheets (I really like the Avery ones listed above).

Now the labels need to be cut to fit the lids. If you have a circular paper cutter (from scrapbooking or the like), I recommend using it so that it will make an even circle. If not, you can always trace the top your new lids on your printed labels and cut them out (if you trace, flip over your Avery paper to the back to trace with a pencil so that the pencil marks don’t show).

http://musthavemom.com/2016/06/5-ways-ipads-can-increase-work-productivity.html

Place each label on the lid of each new spice jar.

Once all your new spice jars are labeled, transfer the spices in to the new jars. To make it a little less messy (be warned …. it’s still going to be messy!), I used a piece of paper as a makeshift filter.

http://musthavemom.com/2016/06/5-ways-ipads-can-increase-work-productivity.html

Now if you want to get REALLY fancy (which I didn’t), you can alphabetize all your spices!

http://musthavemom.com/2016/06/5-ways-ipads-can-increase-work-productivity.html

May your spices be organized and you’re easily able to pronounce all of them!
