Declutter Your House One Room at a Time - The Kitchen
All November and December I was thinking about decluttering my whole house.
I forced myself to wait till after the holidays so that I could enjoy the holidays first.
My plan was to start in January and do one room a week.
Guess what, I decluttered my kitchen first and 8 hours later I didn't want to declutter EVER again. 🙈😂
I am starting to get back on track and feel motivated again. I have 2 rooms left for my downstairs and they are both pretty easy/small. So it shouldn't be an issue. But when it is time to declutter my hall closet, bedroom, and garage - send help. I will need a new strategy to not crash and burn.
I think I am going to make this a series so we will have one post for each month. As I share videos of me decluttering a space I will add the video and product links.
While I am sharing a lot of links in this series, I am also reusing as much as I can because I cannot afford a years worth of college tuition on organization items.
I think the sign that you have officially hit your 30's is when you get excited about utensil organization.
I should note, the wooden expanding utensil organizer did not fit in the original utensil drawer. We had to move things around which is fine. But I probably should have measured 😬

A few years ago I bought all rectangular spice containers because I liked the look. This year I decided that from now on I will just specifically buy spices that come in rectangular containers.
I also organized our taco holders and cheese knives using cleaned out old candle jars. This is a drawer that no one is going to see, if I can repurpose something and save $$ it is worth it.

Everyone has a junk drawer in the kitchen right. The container set I bought for this drawer had 24 containers. I thought it would last me more drawers than it did. I was able to use it for my junk drawer and my calendar table.

So this is the part where I forgot to be a good little blogger and didn't video the whole process. BUT I did get all the before and afters.
My favorite organization is in my holiday cabinet. The mug organizer and the plate rack are GAME CHANGERS.
@sandboxacademy Still chipping away at my 2023 goal to develop systems in my house to make everythign run smoothly and declutter all the things. #declutteryourlife #decluttering #declutteringtips #declutteringin2023 #momof2 #relatablemom #declutterformentalhealth #overstimulatedmom #declutteringchallenge #decluttering #2023goals #cleaningmotivation2023 #decluttermotivation #cleanwithme ♬ original sound - Emily | mom talk + activities
My friend Marla has a whole course designed for stay at home moms so that they feel more successful in their role. I have taken it and I am referring back to it a lot this year as I am working on developing systems and routines that work for me and my family. She has a whole module on that.
