Chefs on television make it look so easy. Perhaps that’s why cooking shows are so popular. That being said, there are plenty of ways to ease the burden at home. Whether you love to cook or despise it, everyone benefits from saving time in the kitchen. Some people don’t enjoy cooking because it’s too much work, and too time consuming. Other people enjoy cooking but simply don’t have the time to spare when balancing work, family, and other activities. Utilizing an assortment of kitchen hacks to save time in the grocery store, prepping for a meal, storing items, and cleaning up the kitchen can make it less painful. It might even become an enjoyable experience.
1) Create a Shopping List
If you don’t enjoy grocery shopping, it can be difficult to motivate yourself to sit down and prepare a list in advance. However, a list can save you time at the store so you don’t find yourself running back to aisles you already visited or standing in one spot pondering which kind of beans you meant to buy. Another way to save time is to have an already prepared permanent list. Include all the items that you buy on a regular basis. If you prefer pen and paper, print out multiple copies to which you can simply add on additional items or cross off regular items if you don’t happen to need them that week. Another option is to use the Notes app on your phone and just put an X next to items you already have.
