10 Minutes A Day Decluttering: Kitchen Clutter
Are you joining us for the 10 Minutes A Day Decluttering Challenge? We are taking just ten minutes a day to remove clutter from one area of our homes.
Part of healthy living is creating comfortable and energizing spaces in our homes, rather than living with draining, overwhelming areas, and you can rid yourself of those cluttered areas by spending just a few minutes a day.
Take a look at my projects from last week:
10 Minute Project #1
I started with this corner of my kitchen where I had let the paper clutter and the utensil crock get out of control.
I spent 10 minutes removing utensils we no longer use, as well as throwing away and filing the papers from the side of the fridge.
10 Minute Project #2
Next I moved to the top of the fridge. The box is from an oil lamp that I had to use because of a 7 hour power outage. I threw it on top of the fridge to get it out of the way, thinking that I would put the lamp back in the box later. Well, that never happened.
I threw away the box, removed everything from the basket, fed the kids the remainders of the bags of chips and reorganized what was left. I also cleaned up and rearranged the items on the front of the fridge.
10 Minute Project #3
This cart and message center are the clutter magnets of the kitchen. This is the dumping ground for everything that comes through this space, and because the previous two weeks had been really busy, I had not taken the time to clean and organize it.
It actually took two 10 minute sessions to sort through everything, throw away the trash and put things where they belong.
After the clean up it looks much better! Even though the basket is still not super-organized, the clutter is contained which makes the space look cleaner.
