Jan 5 - Kitchen Desk, Kitchen Gadgets

I've been working a lot in the kitchen.  Here is my desk area

BEFORE


It needed a big makeover.  I took everything off the desk and started over.  I also had lots of phone numbers on post its on the wall that were all expired!

AFTER


I now have an out box for library books and or mail that needs to be mailed.  That's the blue basket.  The bills I moved to the draws under the phone.

Here's my kitchen table BEFORE



It didn't take long to declutter that as I normally stay on top of it daily.

AFTER


Onto the gadgets.  I had 3 draws to do.  Here are the BEFORE photos

Jan 2 - More Counters in Kitchen

I spent my afternoon instead of napping doing the Jan 2 challenge.  I couldn't do my sink area yet since my kids didn't do their chores yet.  One of my kids always empties the dish washer so I can move the dirty dishes to the dishwasher and, of course, they weren't home yet to do their chores.

Here are the before photos.

AFTER:


island.  Got rid of the table and cleared all the clutter and folded all the laundry.


DAY 2 COMPLETE!

Jan 1 - 15 Minute Tackle Your Counter Top

I think I spent more than 15 minutes because I wound up doing 2 cabinets and part of my pantry!  I decided to tackle my coffee area.

BEFORE COUNTER


BEFORE CABINET ABOVE COFFEE POT


I moved  the bread to the pantry and the zip locks to cabinet above but first I had to clean out cabinet above.  Getting rid of tea that was expired or anything I just don't use any more.

AFTER COUNTER (now, will it stay this way?)


Cabinet above I only did 2 shelves!  Bottom shelve I put snacks on right, zip locks on left.  Above on left is candles and peanut butter on the left is teas/coffees and sugars.  Still need to do shelves above but today's assignment was COUNTER TOPS so another day!


Happy with the result so far.

2018 - A New Project

I know it's been years since I have posted on my blog.  I've been a fly baby for years and it's about time I get back on track for 2018.  So I decided to try this new challenge which takes only 15 minutes a day.


I Am Getting Clutter Free in 15 Minutes a Day

Who would like to join me? 

Here is link to the January Declutter Calendar

I already have a clothing bin for donations in my closet.  I've been putting in clothes that don't fit into that bin for months now and from time to time I have Vietnam Veterans of America come and pick up my bags.  I have found them the best since they come to your house and take everything off your front steps without you having to lug things to them. 

I'll try to put my progress here as I go through the month if I remember taking photos.

Here's to a decluttered 2018 year.
