1. Sort, sort, sort.
When you start packing up your kitchen, sort everything into three categories: storage; temporary kitchen; and throw/donate/recycle. You can take your time to do this and when demolition day arrives, you’ll be all done.
Make sure to label any boxes going to storage very clearly and specifically, you never know when you’ll need to find something you didn’t think you’d need.
Pack away any seasonal or larger items like slow cookers or deep fryers. They’ll only get in the way.
2. Designate a temporary kitchen.
Ideally you need a place on the main floor of your home that can be set up and stay that way for the entirety of the renovation. A sink, running water and a temporary prep bench are essentials!
Only keep the things you really need to prepare simple meals unless you have the space to really indulge in a great temporary kitchen.
