Do you have kitchen counter clutter? Try this strategy to put an end to the clutter.

Start on the left side and pick up each item on your counter as you go around and ask, “How often do I use this?” Whenever I do this exercise with clients they are always so pleased to have a calmer kitchen counter!

Follow these 3 guidelines:

  • If an item is used once a day, it needs to be within arm’s reach. Example: If you drink coffee every morning, put all the coffee items together near the coffee pot.
  • If an item is only used once a week, you can look for it in a lower cabinet.
  • If an item is not used often, you could walk to another area to get it, such as a pantry, or store on a higher shelf.
