Closing cabinet doors is a great method to conceal mess, but it works only as long as you don’t want to find something in the messy closet. As we are approaching the end of the year, many of us are already thinking about the New Year resolutions we are going to make about maintaining our home neat and orderly – if organizing your cabinets is among your resolutions, here are a few tips how to do it:

  • Remove the contents of your cabinet, have a look at each item and decide whether you need it or not – we tend to cram unused, unnecessary, broken items into our cabinets, that’s why you need to be very hard on yourself and get rid of any item that is not perfectly functional;
  • Clean the cabinet – use a soft cloth and some suitable detergent to remove every spot of dirt and grime from inside the cabinet and sliding drawers and from the exterior surface of the cabinet door;
  • Use organizers – boxes, space dividers and other organizers are great for maintaining your cabinets organized and they also make cleaning much easier next time. If the cabinet is large enough, you can also figure out how to add more storage with racks mounted on the doors.
