Decluttering the kitchen - Page 3

Cool, I'm sure we can keep the momentum of this thread going through the Merry Month of May. You and I have eerily similar kitchen floor plans, although my sink is on the right wall from the stove. I love your granite counter tops!!!

ETA: You also have identical flooring to mine! Mine is tile. Is yours tile or the linoleum that looks like tile? I'll have to take and post some pics.

Mine is also tile This house is just a rental, as we are here for just 1-2 yrs...but I rather enjoy the layout, and love having enough windows and space to add some personal touches, though I wonder sometimes if I should just clear all counters and be rid of clutter catchers, lol!

Looking forward to your pics!

Well, I haven't done anything since my initial purge, but I am still motivated. I love the new space on the counters since we ditched the microwave and the cabinet I cleared is really tidy and much easier to use.

I did get to Target and buy a couple of big bins to use for dh's mom's china. I am really, really, really not looking forward to doing this. The dishes are so terribly fragile and there are so many! I know if I can just get them cleared out of the kitchen and stored away safely I will feel a lot better. It is just a matter of finding time to do it when I don't have kids underfoot.

My goal this week:

Pack away the china (hopefully we can give it away, dh's brother is interested in it).

Clear out one more cabinet.

RuthieGirl, it sounds like you have made a great start, woo hoo! You have inspired me now!

I have chunked (well, will probably donate) a small bag with extra plastic forks/spoons from the kiddos - a lot of it, lol, and an electric knife. I also organized and went through the coupon drawer and recycled tons of old coupons. There is not much else I can get rid of, but I do need to figure out a better way to organize it so things do not fall out of the cabinets when I open them
