Fall is the perfect time of the year to start organizing your kitchen. With the cool breeze blowing outside, it’s time you step up to revamp your kitchen for the season. After all, it’s worth noting that the holidays are just a few weeks away. Here are some simple yet effective tips to organize your kitchen for this vibrant season:
Clear out the fridge & freezer
Clear out remnants from the warmer months such as freezer-burned Popsicle sticks and old food supplies that are past their expiration date. Replace these meals with loads of root vegetables, cans of soup, hearty cuts of meat and frozen meals. While you purge, analyze all the summer leftovers you can use for the fall season. This includes the fresh batch of tomato sauce you made when tomatoes were in season!
Organize your baking essentials
Fall is the perfect time of the year to bake cookies, pies, fresh loaves of bread – you name it. To ensure you don’t turn your kitchen into a chaotic mess, make sure all of your baking essent...
No matter how many trips I take, whether by car, air, boat, or train, my absolute favourite mode of transportation is car. Flying is great when I need to get somewhere too far to drive, or in a hurry, but nothing beats travelling by car when you have the time to do so. I love the inviting open road, the sunshine on my face, rolling down the window and rocking out to my favourite tunes. It all feels so freeing and wonderful!
The excitement of the trip can continue throughout your journey when you are prepared and organized. As much as we would like to believe that everything will go smoothly, the reality is that there will probably be a few hiccups along the way. By being organized, you can make sure these inconveniences are minimal and that they don't slow you down – literally.
