Day 13 – Kitchen

You guessed it. We are working on the rest of the kitchen today. It’s a big project.

Be vigilant. Empty out each of your cupboards and wipe them down, inside and out. Before replacing the cooking paraphernalia, make sure it is not cracked, broken, never used or missing pieces. Toss or donate it. Be strong; be ruthless!

A larger plastic tub for food storage containers and their matching lids is a great way to corral them. Also, many kitchen stores sell special organizers just for pot lids that may help in your kitchen as well.

The silverware drawers can be super messy. Remove everything, clean the tray and replace. Toss or donate any kitchen gadgets that you once thought were amazing but really never use.

Unless you use an item daily, like the coffee pot, get it off your counter.  An array of small appliances lining your counters is just more clutter. Find a place to put them. See day 11 for ideas in the pantry to store these items.

Sort through your spices. They usually only last a year or so. If you haven’t used it in ages, smell it. If it’s old, it probably doesn’t smell strongly any longer. Throw it out.

You can purchase a container that attaches to the door of the sink cabinet to stuff all the plastic grocery bags in and a basket or plastic tub can hold all the soaps, sponges and scrubbies.

Aaaahhh! Doesn’t that feel better?!

Spice Racks – store them so you can see them. Double buying is a common problem among spice clutter. I love how this one pulls down for easy access.
