If you’re tired of cooking in a kitchen that feels cluttered and disorganized, it’s time to simplify. You don’t have to be a bare bones minimalist in order to reap the benefits of a simplified kitchen. With these 7 easy tips, you can simplify your kitchen without sacrificing your favorite culinary conveniences. It’s not about deprivation, it’s about creating space for the things you love and enjoy.

1. Declutter – This is the first step towards a simplified kitchen. Go through every drawer and cabinet, and get rid of anything you don’t use. Most of us have tons of gadgets gathering cobwebs in the dark crevices of our cupboards, and Tupperware lids whose bowls have been missing for years. If you have a collection of plastic children’s cups and your children have moved on to real glasses, pass them along to someone else. It’s time for them to go!

2. Let it live where you use it – This means that pots and pans should go in the cabinets nearest your stove, and cooking utensils and potholders in the nearest drawers. Your spice rack or designated shelf space should also be in this vicinity. This sounds like common sense, but a lot of people don’t do it. If your kitchen isn’t already organized this way, you’ll love the difference it makes!
