Kitchen Cleanse


If you are afraid that opening a kitchen cabinet will drown you in an avalanche of dishes, plastic cups, bags of spices and other clutter, maybe it is time to de-clutter. It is a good idea to always de-clutter your kitchen.

If you truly wish to be effective and quick in de-cluttering your kitchen, you can consider the following tips:

Start with de-cluttering– it could be an old plant that is barely noticeable, or it could be an old chair that everyone’s just used to, but it has to go to clear space. It is important to develop the right attitude. Be ruthless!

Acquire needed gear – de-cluttering  as a whole requires some supplies before you start. You will want to have bags and boxes for disposal and donation. And because de-cluttering usually goes hand in hand with cleaning, you will also want to have everything essential for this task.

Clear one area at a time– you can easily find yourself overwhelmed by the work if you do not focus your efforts. The best way to de-clutter is to get one area done at a time before proceeding to the next. Get a single drawer, cupboard or shelf done and move on to the next one. That way work will not pile up and you will feel a lot more motivated as the result of your efforts. Dealing with clutter in the kitchen is best taken care of slow and steady, not rushed.

Get help for the job – if you think there is too much work to do on your own, ask for help. Get a family member or a friend to help.

Organize a giveaway – if there is anything in your kitchen that is only taking space and you never seem to use it, give it away. For example, you can give to a friend who will use it, or consider donating to charity. Click here for a list of local charities and other donation sites

– If you follow these tips and guidelines, you will have much easier time de-cluttering your kitchen. You can freely use them for other parts of your home too.
