Make a List
Make a list of work you have to do which will include, going through the things you own, dividing them into categories, throwing the useless items, storing items you don’t use frequently, cleaning the racks and boxes, rearranging the items in the kitchen. You can take some time and make a checklist.
Just when you are about to begin, set a timer so that your mind knows you have to complete the task in a very restricted time. Don’t set unrealistic time, that will only demotivate you or push you away from the goals. Set a timer and try to meet the time limits. Challenge yourself as if you are in some reality show.
Start by Categorising
Instead of investing your time in picking one item, thinking if it is useful or not, or maybe it can be used and then keeping it back or in the trash, start categorising items as useful, useless, and maybe in the near future. Don’t consume much time on a single item. Just pick up the stuff, it is an everyday use item, keep it in that category slot, if it is completely useless, in the useless slot and if you have to consider the item and think about it, keep it in the maybe slot to think about it later. This way you will end up categorising all the items in no time and once you are done with that, throw out the useless items and work on the ‘maybe’ slot.
Clean the Drawers
Once you are left with only useful items that are either everyday use or once in a while use, consider moving to the cleaning part. Clean every rack, drawer and organizers you have in the kitchen so that you can be prepared to stack back the items. Once you are done with cleaning the drawers, clean the items that you have as well. This way everything shall be clean and all you need to do is organize.
Pack the Unnecessary
Any item or appliance that is useful but isn’t used on an everyday basis should be packed. This also includes all the duplicates. You would need a maximum of 3 cups, plates, bowls, serving spoons if you live by yourself and anything more than that is unnecessary and extra. Pack all the stuff and keep it in the storage slot.
