A PROFESSIONAL organizer shared the simple mistake most people make that takes up valuable kitchen space.
The TikTok channel helps people tidy and organize their homes and apartments.
TikTok page @allieshaworganizer recommends throwing away excess cutlery, straws and napkins to take with you.
In her experience, many people hoard these items but never use them or throw them away.
Getting rid of to-go cutlery is a surefire way to free up space in your kitchen for things you use and need.
People in the comments section admitted to saving these items.
“Guilt as charged,” said one user. “I have them in the house, car, bags from fast food restaurants and holdalls.”
Another person wanted to limit the amount of cutlery they take out of restaurants because they have so much at home.
Other people shared helpful ways to use the surplus items.
“Please donate (these items) to your local homeless advocacy groups,” said another user.
They further said that these items are not usually included in the prepackaged meals.
Another person suggested using the napkins and cutlery for takeaway meals.
The channel also shared tips on other areas like garages.
For these areas it is recommended to hang all gardening tools that you have.
In this video @allieshaworganizer showed how a long piece of scrap wood can be used as a makeshift display for the tools.
Getting the tools out of the way can free up space in the garage for other items.
