If you're lucky enough to have a morning kitchen or a guesthouse, you can turn that into food-prep central. Or outfit a corner of the basement, garage or workroom with a few portable tables, standalone shelves, storage crates and folding chairs.
2. Winnow down your kitchen gear. During a remodel, your cooking and eating
routine will be disrupted, and no matter how much you love to cook, ambitious
meals will be a challenge.
Keep things simple and pare down to the kitchen tools you really, truly can't live without. Be merciless — how often are you going to use your food processor or waffle iron? Stash the essentials close at hand and store the rest.
Move your fridge to your temporary kitchen, if possible; if not, invest in a minifridge and a chest freezer or borrow them from a friend.
4. Stock the pantry with disposables. Without your usual spot to wash dishes, you'll be getting creative (the bathtub, an outdoor hose, a cooler full of sudsy water).
Make life easier by stocking up on recyclable or biodegradable plates, napkins, cups and utensils. You'll streamline cleanup and cut down on the stress of your temporary displacement.
6. Keep a stash of nonperishable snacks. When you're starving but can't face putting together a full meal in your makeshift digs, snacks can save your stomach.
Peanut butter, crackers, dried fruit or fruit leather, canned goods, trail mix and more can make for quick meals in a pinch.
