It is essential to be organized in the kitchen. Cooking can be stressful enough as it is. Who needs the extra frustration of shuffling through cabinets searching for the next ingredient? My wife and I solved our own storage dilemma once and for all by converting all of our lower kitchen cabinets — originally outfitted as cabinets with regular doors — into cupboards made of drawers. Now finding things couldn’t be easier.
My wife and I are big organizers in our home, always looking for ways to make the process of finding and using things more streamlined. We of course brought this philosophy into our kitchen—having a cabinet for the flours, and a cabinet for the oils and vinegars,and so on—but it wasn’t enough. The problem was the lower kitchen cabinets themselves, as they required you to crouch down and take the cooking ingredients through a few rounds of musical chairs before finding what you needed. There’s the sherry vinegar!
