3 Ways to organize your kitchen according to a pro
For some helpful advice, I turned to Lauren Combs, a professional organizer and the owner of Neat Method Detroit. You should place everything that goes in and out of your dishwasher frequently (think plates, glasses, silverware), within arm’s reach of the dishwasher. Consider putting all your cooking utensils in a drawer or in a jar right next to the stove. Put zones you use most frequently at eye level, and zones you use less often further out of reach. You can organize within the zones as well putting your most frequently used items in front, and least-used items in the back.
