We can all agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home. In the morning it’s where we refuel to start the day. In the evening it’s where we replenish our empty tanks after we’ve worked hard at work or at school.
There’s nothing like having the ability to customize your kitchen to fit the needs of your family. In fact Beazer Homes offers Choice Plans that help you get the most enjoyment from your family’s kitchen.
Today I’m sharing a few sanity-saving kitchen organization ideas to implement with or without your Choice Plan options. These tips have worked great in our own home as a family of 7. Believe me we’ve tried several organizing strategies, some of which proved to be a waste of time and money. However, our top four kitchen organization solutions have minimal cost and have been successful in our quest for peace in the midst of chaos.
The twins have starting to enjoy a cup of coffee with us in the morning (imagine that). Now with four people clamouring for a jolt, everything must be in its proper place especially the mugs which we now store in a drawer beneath.
I borrowed this idea from a client and it’s been a wonderful way to edit our collection of coffee mugs. We only get to keep our favorites. The others are donated in an effort to save precious cabinet space.
Two of our children are homeschooled while another attends a private school. There would be times I’d reach for snacks to pack into her lunch box (if I could find it) and the snacks would be gone. In an effort to take away the threat of an empty snack bin, we assigned a lunch cabinet where we keep everything in order.
For all others, we have The HELP YOURSELF Snack Basket. In this basket we throw in a week’s worth of snacks for five kids. Before you start to feel sorry for them (ha!) it’s not their only source. We combine pantry snacks with fresh fruits and vegetables to maintain a well-rounded diet.
Have you ever tried to prepare dinner with a toddler strapped to each leg?
Yes, we have two rambunctious little people who pull food from the counter, lick spoons when we turn our heads, and climb the countertop for a closer look at what’cha cooking.
