Add a garbage disposal
Along with cooking comes clean-up. Before loading the dishwasher, give each plate and pot a quick rinse in the sink. Food-clogged pipes and kitchen odors are less likely with a garbage disposal. As a bonus, whisked-away foods won't get sealed in the kitchen garbage bag and add to the local landfill.
Turn glass jars into kitchen storage accessories
Revamp the look of the kitchen by using various sizes of clear glass for pasta sauce, baby food or salad dressing jars to showcase most-often used pantry ingredients. Dried beans, noodles, spices and grains displayed on kitchen shelves highlight a cooking passion and add a modern, resourceful vibe to the quaint space.
