I don’t like kitchen clutter, food or otherwise.
For me an organised kitchen is a happy kitchen
As part of my life simplification journey I try not to make unneccessary purchases and to keep items to a minimum where possible, with things having multi-use. However I do possess a handful of items that for me, make my kitchen work more efficiently.

My love of slow-cooking is no secret (Go for it Surburban Minimalist let your Mom get you one!!) – so for me a slow cooker is a must (I have 3 – it’s my guilty pleasure).
I’ve also blogged about no peel garlic presses and potato ricers. All of these things are used daily and make my life simpler!
My Simple Top Tip this Tuesday is to take notes throughout the week of food/household items required as you identify the need.
So I felt this Tuesday the time was right introduce my Ceramic Notepad!
I choose to use a ceramic pad as it is in a designated area in which both the Hubby and I know will get picked up when I do my house/food planning and purchasing – which I do once a week. No bits of paper floating around and getting mislaid.
Once the shopping is ordered the notepad gets wiped clean and off we go again!
Please note that there are more organised people than I who can manage paper a lot better than I, so if ceramic doesn’t do it for you just use a traditional notepad and keep it in a designated place that everyone knows about.
Make the rule that ‘what gets noted on the pad gets purchased’ then your amazing but over-used mind-reading skills can take a well-deserved holiday!
I’d love to hear your tips on how to organise the kitchen so please feel free to comment below…
