Welcome to the 30-Day Organize-athon!
In today’s 5 minutes we’re going to organize your pots and pans.
Let’s get to it.
Day 13: Organize Your Pots, Pans, and Cookware
Step 1: Empty your pots and pans cupboard onto the floor.
Step 2: Add any stray cookware that belongs here but has migrated to other kitchen locations.
Step 3: Quickly select the items you use regularly. If you have doubles, choose the one that’s in better condition.
Step 4: Throw decrepit cookware into the trash. Any doubles, or items you’ve rarely-if-ever used (do I see a Flavorwave?) can be put aside for the charity store.
Step 5: Put the pots, pans and cookware you’re keeping back into the cupboard. Make the area tidy by keeping similar items together.
Step 6: If any of your pots, pans or cookware needs replacement, make a note on your shopping list.
And you’re done!
Got an Extra 5 Minutes?
Let’s simplify your recipe collection.
- Scan your collection of cookbooks and recipes.
- Books you don’t love or use? Put them aside to donate to a friend or the library.
- Books with only a few recipes you use? Consider ripping out the pages you use to simplify your recipe library.
- Make a note to buy a binder or display folder for your loose recipes.
Now don’t you feel more inclined to cook here?

Managed to do this this morning, this was quite quick to do and I have all my cookery books on shelves on my kitchen dresser. I have purchased a receipe binder and have put that major receipe re-organise down on my to do list, having chucked a few books that I know I don’t want/use.
If you cook a lot then that will be a big job, so it’s a good one to diarize for later. 🙂
This was a combo back when I went through my books. I just packed the 4 I have left with the binder of the recipes that I am copying so I can consolidate what I actually use.
No point having recipe books you don’t use! Might as well tear/copy out what you use and put them in a binder. Easy and uncluttered! 🙂
Don’t that many pots and pans…this gave me a chance to rearrange them and get them easier to use.
I did this and do it on a regular basis.
