Hey mamas! Are you tired of feeling like you’re constantly digging through a mess under your kitchen sink? Trust me, I know the feeling and it stinks.
But don’t worry, with a little bit of decluttering, measuring, and organization, you can turn that chaotic space into a functional and organized one.
In this post, I’ll be sharing my tips and tricks for decluttering, sorting, planning, implementing, and maintaining organization under your kitchen sink.
So grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get started on creating a space that will make your life a little bit easier!
Declutter and Sort
Step one in organizing under your kitchen sink is to declutter and sort. First things first, let’s get rid of anything that you no longer need or use.
This can be anything from expired cleaning products to old dishwashing sponges. Trust me, you’ll feel a weight lifted off your shoulders just by getting rid of these items. Once you’ve decluttered, it’s time to sort. I like to sort items into categories, such as cleaning supplies, dishwashing items, etc.
This makes it easier to see what you have and to find what you need quickly. Plus, it will make the next steps in the process a lot easier. So take a few minutes to declutter and sort, and you’ll be well on your way to a more organized under sink area.
Measure and Plan
Alright mamas, now that we’ve decluttered and sorted, it’s time to measure and plan. Measuring the space under your sink is crucial because it will help you figure out what storage solutions will fit and work best.
Once you have your measurements, you can start thinking about what type of storage solutions you want to use. There are a lot of options out there, like shelves, bins, and even hanging organizers.
The key is to choose something that will fit in the space you have and will work with the layout of your sink area.
For example, if you have a lot of tall items, you might want to opt for shelves that are stacked on top of each other to maximize vertical space.
On the other hand, if you have a lot of small items, small bins or drawer organizers might work better.
So, grab a tape measure and take a look at what you’re working with under your sink. Then use your measurements to plan out a storage solution that will work for you and your family. And don’t be afraid to get creative, you’ll be surprised how much you can fit in a small space with the right organization.
Now it’s time to implement and organize. This is the fun part where you get to take your plan and make it a reality. Depending on the storage solutions you’ve chosen, there may be some installation or set up required. But don’t worry, most organizers and shelves come with instructions, and they’re usually pretty easy to put together.
Once your storage solutions are in place, it’s time to organize your items within them. This is where the sorting we did earlier comes in handy. Put your cleaning supplies in one area, dishwashing items in another and so on. I like to use clear bins or containers for my items so I can easily see what’s inside, but you can also use labels to keep things organized.
The key here is to make sure that everything has a designated spot and is easy to access when you need it. And don’t forget to consider the items you use most often and make sure they are in a convenient spot for you. By implementing and organizing, you’ll be able to find what you need quickly and easily and will be able to keep your under sink area organized and tidy.
Maintaining The System
Alright, we’ve made it to the final step, maintain and reevaluate. Organizing under your kitchen sink can be a lot of work, but the key to keeping it that way is maintenance.
Make sure to put things back where they belong after every use. It’s also a good idea to set a reminder to do a quick check and tidy every few weeks to make sure everything is still in its designated spot and that nothing has been missed.
Also, it’s important to reevaluate the organization periodically. As your family’s needs change, or as you acquire new items, it’s a good idea to take a look at your under-sink organization and make adjustments as needed.
This will ensure that the space remains functional and efficient. Remember that organizing is not a one-time thing, but it’s an ongoing process! You’ve got this!
Moms, let’s do this! I know the idea of organizing under your kitchen sink may seem overwhelming, but trust me, it’s worth it.
By following the steps we’ve covered in this post, you’ll be able to declutter, sort, measure, plan, implement and maintain a well-organized and functional space under your sink. And let’s be real, who doesn’t want a little more ease and simplicity in their lives?
I know it’s easy to put things off, but don’t wait any longer. Take some time to declutter and sort, measure and plan, implement and organize, and maintain and re-evaluate.
You’ll be surprised at how much a little bit of organization can do for you and your home. It’s like a weight lifted off your shoulders, honestly. And don’t be afraid to get creative and make it work for you and your family.
So, moms, let’s roll up our sleeves and tackle this project together. I know you can do it. You’ve got this. Happy organizing!
