Organize things by frequency of use. The most used utensils, appliances and dishes should always be at easy access and at hand’s reach. If the appliances or dishes are used rarely they may take up precious space in the kitchen and clutter it. Store them in the basement, closet or get rid of them if you do not use them at all. You can sell, donate or give them.
