We first got rid of the plates, bowls, etc. the family never used. And by sorting everything by category, and labelling the shelves, everyone, including the cleaning woman when she unloads the washing machine, knows where each item must be put away. This will help keep the cupboard organized in the long run!
Now the stock of dry foods is easily visible, and divided into sweet, and salty foods.
Earlier, all of these spices and bottles were cluttering the kitchen counters. So there was no room to prepare meals! By sorting, we made room for them on these two shelves , and freed the counters, too!
One last thing, little Suzanne , who is two , now has a full cupboard for her, down, where can she, like in the Montessori method, reach for her bowl and her spoon, just like the other members of the family!
