Go through your pan cabinet. Anything you don’t use at least once a week can go on a shelf in the pantry/basement.  Think cabinet real estate – its all about location!  That space is precious.  That waffle maker you used for father’s day 2 years ago doesn’t need to be in the kitchen on a daily basis.  The cookie sheet that doubles as a turkey/chicken pan as well as for making fries, etc, should be up front.  After my 4th child came along I got rid of all small saucepans…for the amount I would use a pan that small, the 2 quart pan works just as well, with no worries of spilling over.

 

Look through your dish cabinet.  Do the kids really still use those plastic character plates? If they do, fine, they’re only kids once! (And while all the hoopla about BPA has come about the past few years, most are now BPA free...and keep in mind, when we were little they were probably full of BPA, and painted in lead!)  But if they prefer glass because they think its more grown-up, don’t fight it! Cabinets will be neater, and emptying the dishwasher will take half the time! And no worries about switching plates to microwave leftovers.

 

Think about storage with servingware. I serve as much as possible in casserole dishes so leftovers can just be covered and refrigerated! Check local outlet stores or websites for plastic lids for casserole dishes, for easy stacking!
