For instance, food should be gathered with like-items together, and not spread out into different cabinets that contain unrelated items. Place your dishes in a cupboard that is either near the eating table or near the sink area.

Place your coffee machine on a counter-top over a cabinet area. Place your coffee and tea objects together near the machine. Pots and pans can placed near the stove area.
