These days we’re finding ourselves spending more time at home, maybe alone, feeling restless and trying to figure out how to best utilize these moments. If you’re like me, you have a running list of things that have needed to be done for a while but you haven’t really had the time. Some of these tasks are on a continuum, like sorting through and swapping out seasonal clothes. While others, like organizing your freezer, usually only happen when you’re assessing space or food needs before a special occasion, like a holiday or family gathering.
Whatever the case may be, being home is certainly more relaxing when things are tidy and organized. And for me, this starts in the kitchen. When I feel inspired to cook I want to know that everything in my kitchen is ready for action. These are some ways any home cook can organize their kitchen with their unexpected extra time—and achieve some moments of zen in the process.
