Some people like to begin their spring cleaning in the kitchen. The
kitchen is the room that is usually used the most in a home. It is where
your meals are prepared and keeping it clean and organized is a
priority. Even though you may clean your kitchen daily, you still need
to do that once a year deep clean that reaches the bottom of every
drawer and the back of every one of the shelves.
For your kitchen spring cleaning, plan to empty every drawer and every
shelf and wipe them clean. As you begin to put things back in place,
take time to reconsider where things are being stored. Is there a deep
drawer that you are always digging through to find things? Are all your
baking pans together in one place? Perhaps moving some items to
different areas will make your kitchen easier to work in.
Don’t forget to go through the items in your food pantry during your
cleaning as well. Check for expiration dates. Throw out anything that is
old. Reorganize this area too so that you can easily see what you have.

If it seems like your kitchen is overstuffed, take time to consider how
often you use some of the items you keep there. How often do you use
that angel food cake pan? Do you have crowd size serving items that you
only use once or twice a year? Do you have holiday theme dishes that are
taking up space? You might consider removing some of these items out of
your everyday kitchen storage and only bringing them into the house
when they are needed.
