1. Keep Spices in Order
Many of us just love to use spices and herbs in cooking. But, what about numerous spice bottles and petite packages scattered on the kitchen island or inside the cabinet? Nightmare! A spice rack affixed to the inside of a cabinet door or a lazy Susan standing in the cabinet corner will keep your herbs and spices organized. Label the bottles and packages to save more time!
2. A Basket for Baking Supplies
Love to bake? Use a basket to keep all the baking supplies like baking soda, baking powder, xanthin gum, cream of tartar, kosher salt, etc. It’s tiresome and time-wasting to walk back and forth to the cabinet while baking. Instead, just keep the basket on the counter and put it back in the cabinet when you are finished.

3. Save Time with Cleaning Supplies
A basket or bucket under the sink is a good storage option but it eventually gets messy when a number of bottled and small products end up there. The best thing to save you from this mess is a tension rod. Install one under the sink and hang the cleaning supply bottles there. Waste your time no more hunting through the basket for cleaning supplies!
4. Freeze up Slow Cooker Meals
If you are a working mom, you will understand how much time and effort has to be given for cooking. So, pack the recipe of various slow cooker meals in separate zipped up bags and store them in the freezer. It will be a huge time-saver during the weekdays. And, make it up to your family by cooking a grand meal on Sunday!
