“Pull out all your kitchen utensils, lay them out… Get rid of the ones that are splintered, the ones that are burned. Just take a minute and get rid of the kitchen utensils you don’t like,”Tracy:

Tracy recommends that you seperate the wooden utensils form the metal to make your look more organized.

“Two seconds and it looks instantly organized,”She said.

Next, she will declutter food storage containers.

This is what a professional organizer captioned Video: “I know every single one of you has bottomless or topless Tupperware.”

That’s her first piece.

Tracy explains that every piece of Tupperware should have a lid and a bottom.

You should throw out any container that you cannot find the top or bottom.

This rule does not apply to glass containers. You can cover them with plastic wrap or tin foil.

Tracy adds that companies that produce glass Tupperware are more likely sell replacement lids.

“So if you have glass storage and you lost the tops for it, replace the lids, give it another life, and keep it out of the landfill,”She offers some suggestions.

Tracy encourages viewers, even though they may not seem like a problem. Declutter water bottles.

“Like coffee mugs, we all have too many water bottles. I believe each person in your household gets two,”She said.

Follow this rule and get rid of those you don’t use or love.
