8) Trash Bowl
Where do you keep your kitchen trash can? Under the sink? In the pantry? Maybe it’s easily accessible as you cook, but maybe it’s not. Cooking can generate a lot of food scraps and garbage. Wasted time really adds up if you are constantly stopping to walk over and throw those peels away, then the wrapping on the ground beef, followed by some greasy paper towels, and safety wrappers just removed from the new bottle of oregano. Save time by using a trash bowl you set on the counter within easy reach and throw everything in there. Tossing fish bones and onion peels into one spot for one trash dump saves multiple trips to the trash can. Plus, it prevents cross contamination of germs. For recyclable items, you can hang a bag off a cabinet near your cooking area and toss it when you’re finished.
