Project Simplify--Kitchen is Done!

Week two of Project Simplify is a success.  I picked away at it all week, but my kitchen is finally done.  While the original challenge was to clean out the pantry and fridge of unhealthy food, I skipped that part because we already eat pretty healthy and there wasn't really anything to get rid of.  So instead I cleaned out every drawer and cupboard.  I cleaned up the counter.  I even went to the store to find a few storage solutions.

Organized and bought a stick on hook for the dust pan that's always in the way

Bought Dividers for the utensils in both drawers

It took longer than I thought it would thanks to the nice weather and my kids begging to go on walks, to the park, anything but stay cooped up inside.  But I'm done and am pretty happy with the way my kitchen turned out.

 My only regret is that I have yet to find a better solution for my "hot spot" on the counter.  But I will.  I am going to scour the internet until I find what I am looking for (it would be helpful if I even knew what I was looking for).

  1. Good job! Paper work is the hardest thing for me to deal with in the kitchen. Are you on Pinterest? There are lots of great organizing ideas there for just about anything. The trick for me now is implementing the ones I've seen that may work for me... :)
