Preparing the Kitchen for the Holidays

With Christmas just around the corner, it is time to consider how you can prepare your kitchen for the abundance of food needing to be prepared. If you wait until Christmas Eve to have your kitchen ready for the family and friends coming over, you are going to cause more stress to an already hectic time. Here are four tips to help ensure that your kitchen is ready for the celebrations!

  1. De-clutter. Go through your fridge and cabinets and throw old items out while donating the items you never use. You will need space to put the groceries after you buy them, an area to prepare the food, cook, and then store until the designated time. Any large supplies that you will not need for the holidays should be stored elsewhere.
  2. Clean. Have the countertops, dining tables, stovetop, fridge, and shelving all cleaned for the abundance of food that is about to arrive and need preparation. Clean the area up to make your workspace comfortable and easy to maneuver in.
  3. Organize. Have the now de-cluttered and clean spaces organized. Make a designated area for anything that is related to the Christmas celebration to make it easy for you to find.
  4. Check your equipment. If there are any specific cooking and baking utilities you need, make sure that they are working. Check items such as your oven, dishwasher, electric mixer, bread maker, grill, and garbage disposal. If any of these items do not work, put in some time and money to have them fixed and ready for use. This will prevent you from having a last minute disaster.

Preparing for the holidays can be stressful, especially if you plan on hosting the people you love. Waiting till the last minute will add to the stress. Work ahead to make the process go as smoothly as possible. It will enable you to enjoy the time you spend with your loved ones even more.
