Over time, you lose precious counter space in the kitchen. Appliance creep starts innocently enough with the addition of a toaster and then slowly grows to include the food processor, mini mixer, can opener, toaster oven, and on and on. Before long you're trying to cook in a postage stamp-sized space only large enough for an eggcup. Reorganize you're counter space to give yourself some much needed room. Everyone who shares work in the kitchen at the same time should have his own workspace. That means that the barbecue wizard in your family should have an area in which to blend his signature sauce while you're working on the salad.
