I finally got photos up of the kitchen declutter/spring cleaning I did a few weeks ago. I am amazed at the difference. Amazing how much stuff I got rid of even though I did this not too long ago.

I am thinking about doing photos like USAmma did in her kitchen. I think it would help the kids (and DH ) know where everything goes.

Wow. Very spartan shelves!

My declutter of the kitchen was nowhere near that space-liberating but I put that down to a severe lack of cupboards

That looks great!!! Amazing how free you feel after getting rid of so much stuff.

Good job, I'd love to see how the counters look!

I'm almost the flip right now. Our inside cabinets are very organized, but the countertops are dirty. We did a marathon baking session the other day!

That looks great! Well done.

You will love not having a "junk drawer". Honestly, it was actually a lifestyle change for me. Getting into a mentality of "everything in my house has value and owns a place" versus "I don't really care about this, so I'll stuff it in here" really goes a long way toward decluttering/simplifying things.

Enjoy your kitchen. It looks wonderful!

I'll see if I can get some later. We are baking today so its a mess right now.

Thanks everyone! I am just amazed at the empty shelves. A little decluttering and reorganization went a long way.

I hope I do like having no junk drawer. As of now I like it but time shall tell.

NICE!

I want to declutter and reorganize my kitchen so bad.The problem is that my husband is "the cook"and freaks out when I declutter and he hates it when I move stuff around.So,I'm still plotting my decluttering mission.It's very tricky.
