What cookware do you really need? I have a love kitchen utensils and cookware, so I most likely have just a few more items than I truly need. It’s okay; really it’s okay……. like I’ve said before the concept of modern minimalism is different for everyone and as long as your belongings don’t cause you frustration, stress or harm then it’s all good, right. Strive for just enough, if you have too many kitchen things some will never or rarely get used and you won’t have the opportunity to enjoy using them. You don’t want your beautiful utensils to go wasted and alone in the recessing of a drawer when they want to be stirring, chopping or scooping.
My kitchen is small, my cabinets are deep, so organization is key in keeping things from getting lost and forgotten. I have one lower cabinet for cookware and a hanging rack for my skillets, the cabinet over pantry holds my small appliances and paper goods. I also have four drawers for things like dish towels, utensils, and other supplies. The cabinet over my refrigerator holds all my holiday dishes and cookbook collection. I still haven’t found the right place for those darn cookbooks, but I won’t part with them, EVER. Each cookbook has a story, and when I peruse the pages, it brings back wonderful cooking memories.
