Having my tools accessible and easy to find is so essential to me when I make products. If they weren’t easy to access, I’d probably put off starting until the very last minute.
Whether I’m building a table, or you’re making balsamic glazed steak rolls, we both need certain tools to make the best thing possible and to do that it’s best to be efficient and have our tools easy to access and use.
If you examine what the best chefs in the world do you’ll notice they break everything down into a process and make sure each item in the kitchen is easy to get to and find. When you’re operating at 100mph and guests are hungry and waiting, every second count. While you may not be cooking for 50 people, I’m sure the hubby and kiddos can get quite impatient at times.
A great first step is to go through all your cooking supplies and decide what is essential, secondary, and then what can be let go of. Really look at what you use, and try not to keep everything. If there are some items that are used together often, take a look on Amazon and see if someone makes a 2 in 1 of those two items merged together so that you can save some space. Every inch counts.
From here, it’s all about storing each item so it’s findable and always has a place to return to. Baskets, drawer organizers, and E.V.A foam are great ways to store your utensils. We do custom fit drawer organizers as seen below. We can help you map out each item and give it its own unique home in the drawer.
Once your drawer is nice and organized go ahead and cook! See how much faster you can get a meal done and, more importantly, try to feel how much more fun cooking is. Pay attention to if you notice an increase in looking forward to cooking!
