Remove Kitchen Clutter

 

You’ve washed the dishes and unloaded the dishwasher or dish rack. Some of you may have even had to do this twice! But that’s okay. Now we can all start implementing the habit of washing or loading dirty dishes into the dishwasher as they accumulate.

Let’s move on to the next step in our Step-by-Step guide to Deep Clean the Kitchen series…

Day 2:: Remove the Clutter

The next step to a clean and organized kitchen is to rid the room of anything that doesn’t belong. With the exception of a few strategic decorations, if it doesn’t help you cook, eat, or clean, it’s probably hindering your ability to fully use your kitchen.

  • Do you have a stack of papers that should be in the in-box on your desk?
  • Do your kids have toys in kitchen that should be in their room?
  • Do you have bags on the floor?
  • Do you have odds and ends on your refrigerator?
  • Do you have a junk drawer full of stuff that belongs somewhere else?  
  • Do you have never used appliances (like a toaster or coffee maker) that can be put in a cabinet?
  • Do you have a rarely used TV or radio on your kitchen counters? What about an abundance of knickknacks? Clearing your counters of clutter will give you more space to enjoy your kitchen and use what you have.

Kitchens can sometimes become a dumping ground for items that belong elsewhere. It happens to the best of us!

If you look around and see only essential kitchen items, then congratulations! You get the day off! But if you happen to see something that doesn’t belong in the kitchen, take it to the appropriate location. And then tell me about your weird, strange, non-kitchen item in the comment section! I’d love to hear about it!

Action Item:

Remove any and all clutter from your kitchen. Then let me over on Facebook or on the comment section here. I can’t wait to cheer you on!
