Use the back kitchen for everything breakfast. Tea, coffee and toast making. Cereal getting and all the cutlery and dishes that get used at breakfast. Then you do not mess your main kitchen until the serious cooking starts later in the day.
Pantry’s are used on a daily, sometimes hourly basis. An organized pantry is a must if you are a busy parent on a tight schedule. Having an organized pantry also helps with lowering the cost on your grocery bill.
