Over the years, your kitchen can get cluttered with old, useless, and broken items. Don’t let that be you! Here is what to get rid of from your kitchen:
Cracked or broken items — If your plates, mugs, cups, utensils, pots, or pans are cracked or broken, get rid of them. There are very few items that you should keep beyond the breaking point. A notable exception is cast-iron frying pans with broken handles.
Packets — Somehow, we tend to accumulate packets of ketchup, soy sauce, Sriracha sauce, and other condiments. Get rid of these items, and you’ll clear out a lot of fridge and drawer space.
Empty spice bottles — Unless you have a special spice rack, it’s a good idea to get rid of empty spice bottles. They’re just taking up space in your cabinets!
Specialty items — How many times in the last year did you pull out your gravy boat, your miniature cordial glasses, or that massive beer stein? If you don’t use these specialty items regularly, get rid of them.
Mismatched dinnerware — It’s normal to have a few mismatched mugs, cups, plates, and utensils from old sets. But why not get rid of those old remnants and buy a new matching set? It will make your kitchen look much more beautiful.
Random lids -– Somehow, there are always more lids than there are Tupperware containers or pots on your shelves. Go through all of your cookware and Tupperware to see which lids you actually need, and get rid of the rest.
Takeout containers — If you have a full set of Tupperware, you don’t need old takeout containers. Get rid of them to free up a lot of space in your kitchen!
