Ever go to make a recipe only to find you have 20 cans of cream corn and no cans of sweet peas? Or when your at the store sit and wonder, "hmmm, Do I need Chef Boyardee today?" Well, with organized kitchen cabinets, and some help from the other people in the house, this can be avoided. It just takes some time (varies depending on how big your cabinets are), a piece of paper, and a pen.
Step 1: Clear Some Workspace
I find the counter top to work well for this since it is big and right near the cabinets. You will need to clear enough counter space to take everything in the cabinets out so that you can see just what it is you have.
