When I recently put up some open storage shelves in my kitchen and stocked them with my pantry items, I was surprised at how it changed my cooking style. When I could see at a glance what I had on hand, it felt much easier to pull together a meal - easier and more creative. Suddenly I was using ingredients I'd forgotten I had when they were hidden in the back of a cupboard.
It's a little extra work keeping the shelves tidy, but I discovered that a few baskets are a great solution for the various bits and bobs that create clutter.
What's your storage style? Do you keep everything hidden behind closed doors? Or do you have open shelves? If so, how do you keep the chaos at bay?
