First weekend of the year is here so you should use this time to sort out any mess in your kitchen that is left over from the holidays. A good rule of thumb is to put together like with like as it makes it easier for you to find what you are looking for. Another good arranging principle is the two-step rule which basically means you shouldn’t have to move more than 2 items to get to the one you need. Take your time and rearrange the items so it is convenient for you, but don’t forget the visual aspect as well. If it is too overwhelming or time consuming for you, don’t be afraid to ask for professional help .
