Is Your Kitchen Due for a Makeover?

Clean up your Kitchen to Straighten Your Diet


  • Will go through my spices and herbs today and reorganize them. Everything else is in good order. - 11/3/2015 6:44:10 AM
    I do this periodically anyway. In the process once again cleaning, pitching and having a good time. when my kitchen is organized, I am happy happy:) - 5/14/2014 4:35:07 PM
  • Criticism: unrefined grain doesn't mean "unnatural grain." Should we start eating nuts in the shell? Eat avocados with the peel on? :)

    That said, many of the other suggestions in the article sound like good ways to motivate someone to stick to their calorie goals. And I really should clean my kitchen! - 3/20/2014 9:34:00 AM
  • That's funny to see this article today. This morning I just organized my pantry. Thanks for the validation it was a good thing to do. - 10/25/2013 9:42:14 AM
  • our kitchen is next on the list to "re-do". These are great suggetions.....I can't wait for an expanded kitc hen. - 10/25/2013 1:49:58 AM
    I've had my kitchen organized like this for years. (I have three drawers for utensils, most often used are right next to the stove). I also keep a "freezer inventory" list of meats on the door, so I know how many packages, and which cuts of chicken, beef, shrimp, etc. are inside. This helps when deciding what I need to buy, especially if there is a good sale. (Like, this week Harris-Teeter has chicken breasts BOGO). Also, when organizing the pantry and shelves, consider adding extra shelving to go UP. I have 3-tier riser shelves on two shelves of my pantry to store cans, spices, etc. and they are easier to see. Also, if your pantry has a regular door (not a bi-fold), you can get special door racks that will hold a LOT of items. - 10/3/2013 11:37:30 PM
  • I'll put up a fight over the TV. It makes meal prep for the week bearable. I'd never finish if it weren't for the TV. - 10/3/2013 10:40:22 PM
  • You're asking for the impossible in my house:( - 10/3/2013 8:36:43 PM
  • CHRISTASP I AGREE WITH YOU. - 10/3/2013 5:48:13 PM
    Jammed utensil drawer. LOL. Mine is horrible! - 10/3/2013 2:10:01 PM
    Nice article. How many years do we have to accomplish it all? - 10/3/2013 8:18:53 AM
  • I am so thankful that DH is a great cook and BUILT the kitchen to be easily organized and everything in view thanks to pull out pantry shelves and drawers for pots and pans, etc.

    There's one pull out shelf for baking items (flour, sugar, baking soda, etc.) another for utensils (mixing bowls, measuring spoons, etc.) and 2 full shelves of seasoning, herbs, etc. with the names clearly visible on the jar lids.

    Yes, it does make all the difference in the world! - 10/2/2013 10:57:59 AM
    Great article, what a pity I don't have enough strenght to do so. - 9/4/2013 4:06:18 AM
  • GOOD IDEA! I will do that next week when ready to shop. - 2/15/2013 8:48:24 AM
  • This will be my project for the week! Today I cleared most of my main working surface. Thus inspired I made a long-overdue next batch of my special cook-in sauce cum salad dressing, which I'd been putting off for at least a week after running out. I got out the ingredients and then did it in 5 minutes!
    Tomorrow I either tackle the smaller job of accumulated chaos in front of my gas hob, or start on the major task of my chaotic secondary working surface where nearly everything gets dumped. I have another working surface where I prepare the animals' meals, use my fish grill and pop corn, that is also cluttered. Ditto top of frig and top of another cupboard.
    I'm thinking of putting hooks on the cupboard doors for tools etc I use most often.
    That will take me into next week! Thank you for spurring me on to making life easier for myself! - 1/16/2013 8:27:44 AM
