Clean out kitchen pots and pans. Only keep the materials you use monthly in the main cabinets. But other pans and appliances on higher shelves or donate them. This cutting board was too large for us. We decided to buy a smaller one that was easier to store and clean in the dishwasher.
Personal Tip: We keep the electric knife in the over the microwave cabinet since we only use it around holidays.
Homework: Clean out cabinets and donate the materials you are now using. Think about the food you prepare and what appliances you still need.
