How I Organize My Paleo Kitchen by Michelle Tam

It’s ironic that I’m part of an “expert” series on organizing at The Kitchn when my hubby does the bulk of the tidying. But hey, whatever works.

The truth is this: Until Henry gets home from work and starts cleaning up (while rolling his eyes at his messy wife and kids), my kitchen’s usually a crazy jumble of pans, platters, spatulas, measuring cups, spices, and towels. Also: sticky notes and markers, random pieces of paper with recipes scribbled illegibly on them, LEGOs that my seven-year-old has strewn all over, and math homework that my ten-year-old hasn’t put away. But that wouldn’t look so hot in a profile piece about kitchen organization, so I shoved the mess to one side before shooting these pics for The Kitchn.

I’m certainly no Marie Kondo, but I’ll admit that once everything’s put away, it’s a pretty awesome feeling. And there are definitely a few tools that help keep us as organized as possible, such as the lazy susans and plastic baskets/tubs in our pantry, which make hunting for sauces, spices, and other ingredients a lot easier.

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
