Tidy up your kitchen counter frequently. A cluttered counter gives a very messy and disorganized look to your kitchen. The fewer things you keep on your counter top, the neater your kitchen looks. Keep only the most frequently required items on the counter top all other items must be stored in the cupboard. Not only does this reduce clutter, but it also makes things easier to find. Dried up dishes are so much harder to clean. This is another great time saver while you are doing chores around the kitchen.
