Your kitchen is likely one of the busiest rooms in your home. Unfortunately, kitchen organization is often overlooked or pushed to the side, which can leave you with a big mess when it comes time to prepare a meal. When you have a well-organized kitchen and pantry, the time you spend there can actually become rather enjoyable.

Keep Snacks Close By
If you have kids, you probably experience a mini-tornado in the kitchen whenever they come through for snacks. One way to keep the snacking well organized is to do some color-coding. Use wire baskets or plastic bins of a certain color to stash snacks. If the kids know their snacks are always in the blue containers, they’re much less likely to make a mess while searching for them.
Look for Space You’re Not Using
There’s probably a fair amount of unused space in your kitchen, but you may not have considered it for storage because it’s in an unusual area. Do you have blank space above the refrigerator, sink, or elsewhere? That space is potentially something that our experts can use to create new storage for you. There may be a great opportunity for brand new shelving and storage solution that you would never have otherwise considered–and you don’t need any major home renovations to get it!
Contact us anytime you feel a storage makeover is what you need. We can create custom storage solutions for your kitchen, closet, or any other room in your home. We are here to help and we look forward to speaking with you soon!

Many of the goals and resolutions homeowners around the Suncoast set at the New Year start falling by the wayside about a month in. Once people start settling into their routines after the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, it can be hard to stick to the plans they made when they were full of end-of-the-year motivation. However, not all resolutions have to be big and lofty. It’s great to set more reasonable day-to-day goals for yourself. Sometimes the simplest ones end up making the biggest differences. In this post, More Space Place serving Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte shares five simple ways to be more organized this year.
1. Make Lists
Chances are you already make occasional lists of things like what groceries you need at the store. Take that habit and extend it into other areas of your life. You’ll likely find making lists can come in handy for a lot of things, such as chores, errands, and to-do lists at work. Whether you make the lists on your phone or prefer the pen and paper method, keeping lists of things you need to do can help keep you more organized overall.
2. Keep High-Traffic Areas Clean
The most frequently used areas of the home, like the kitchen and the living room, are also the ones most prone to clutter and messes. Keeping these spaces picked up and tidy will help keep your home more organized in general, and it will prevent clutter from building up to a point where it becomes overwhelming.
3. Clean As You Go
Similar to the previous point, cleaning as you go is a great way to stay on top of messes. This applies to cooking, laundry, and other tasks that leave things in their wake. When making a meal, put ingredients away as you use them and wash dishes once you don’t need them anymore. This will leave less to clean at the end of the meal. When you do laundry, put your clean clothes away as soon as you fold them. This will prevent clothing clutter from accumulating and creating more of a mess.
4. Sync Your Calendars
Keeping track of your own appointments, outings, and events can be hard enough. Add your spouse’s and/or your kids’ schedules to the mix and you’re likely to lose track of things. Syncing your calendar with everyone in your family or household will help keep track of all the different schedules, which will ultimately help streamline the planning of your own calendar.
5. Plan Your Meals
Blocking out Sunday afternoon to plan and prep your meals for the upcoming week can save you a lot of time during the busy workweek. Divide portions into individual containers that you can grab in the morning before you leave the house. Having your meals planned for the week will help keep you more organized, as well as save time for doing other things.
