14) Keep Tools & Utensils Accessible
This tip is very similar to the previous ones about getting your ingredients out in advance and using a trash bowl. It saves little bits of time throughout the cooking process that add up over time. If you use all three tips together, they add up to a pretty immense time saver. Don’t keep all your cooking tools, spatulas, wooden spoons, tongs and the like stuffed away in drawers. It is a waste of time to constantly dig for them every time you need something. If you use an item only on rare occasions, by all means put it away, but those items you use regularly are better off in an attractive holder on the counter-top, easily accessible from the stove and wherever else you find you complete most of your meal prep.
