Top Kitchen Essentials for Busy Families
Appliances certainly have their place in the kitchen. However, a well functioning kitchen wouldn’t be complete without top notch essentials – the little things that help you plan your meals, stay organized and make prepping for meals a piece of cake. From the perfect trashcan to the best way to keep your kitchen and life in scheduled working order, we have it all for you today!
The kitchen is often the “hub” of a house, and as such, moms need to keep it as organized as possible. Meal planning is an excellent way to keep up with grocery inventory and stick to eating home-cooked meals, and you can keep track of your meals (and your activities, too!) with a whiteboard calendar, like this one by TailorMade. TailorMade whiteboards are fully customizable and allow you to choose the background, frame and special touches of your whiteboard.
Featured here is the “Chalkboard” whiteboard with a maple changeable frame, a family photo added (such a personalized touch!) and a tray at the bottom to hold whiteboard pens. With many styles of frame available, you’re sure to find one that will allow your whiteboard to blend in seamlessly with your cabinetry. The changeable frame means that you can swap out the design behind the glass to change things up seasonally or whenever you’d like something different. TailorMade offers satisfaction guaranteed against staining or “ghosting,” unlike other whiteboards, so you can maintain your nonporous whiteboard simply with a wipe and some water!
A whiteboard calendar will let you keep your meal plan easily accessible to the whole family and you can add items in the “notes” section to grab at the store for future recipes. Who knows, maybe if family members can see what meal is planned for dinner, they may offer to pitch in and help!
Sack may be a good alternative. This special bag is a double draw-string designed hanging sack, which protects vegetables from light and delays the sprouting process. It’s all cotton and designed perfectly to hold up to 2 pounds of garlic and shallot bulbs. The sack features a convenient hanging loop so vegetables remain handy and within reach. It’s easy to keep clean by throwing it in the washing machine.
This is an economical way to store root vegetables, yet keep them conveniently accessible. The unique
design with drawstrings at the top and bottom mean you can add vegetables and remove them easily-always using the older vegetables first. The sacks can be purchased to coordinate with your kitchen with three colors, orange, green and purple.
