(WJBK) - The kitchen may be one of the busiest rooms in your house, but it doesn't have to be the most disorganized.
Every item can have its own place with drawer dividers and organizers. By storing similar items together, you won't waste time rummaging through drawers to find the right frying pan or serving tray.
But, smart storage doesn't mean everything has to be hidden away. Keep dishware and kitchen utensils stacked on a long shelf and in open boxes on the work surface, so everyday items are easy to reach while preparing your meals.
