Welcome to Day 2 of 7 Days To A Dramatically Decluttered Home.
Today’s task will take about 1 hour. How long you spend depends on what you want to achieve.
We’re going to begin by getting clear on the role of your kitchen in your home and your life. We’ll then use that to declutter your kitchen.
Let’s get started.

Will consider kitchen values and then embark on getting what’s needed to accomplish healthy eating and ridding of things that do not meet that goal!
This one was great! My husband & I had already been throught the kitchen cupboards & pantry and tossed out stuff, so there wasn’t much to do; but I did enjoy analysing the role my kitchen plays in our home. I came up with a word that helped remember & describe my kitchen’s role – “Sauce”, but spelled SORS – Simple, Organised, Relaxed, Sorted! This helped a lot, and I now have so much more room inside the cupboards, and the benchtops are a lot less crowded! The kitchen now looks bigger & brighter! 🙂
I took some extra time to scrub the bench tops & splash back tiles too, so now its sparkling – Love it!
Working on cookbooks to keep only the ones I truly like. Since retiring I have more time to cook some fun dishes I have wanting to try and downsize
We are in the process of kitchen renos so everything I empty or refill a cupboard I’m doing this type of review. Once I can put everything away, I can think about where things belong based on use.
will donate several cookbooks, random bowls, dinner plates I don’t love, an indoor grill, etc, a fancy and loud coffee machine with built in grinder, and threw away ancient spices. Still have to go through food and some other things, but lots of progress. This is addictive!
Worked on this last evening and today…took more than an hour, but I let go of 2 huge boxes of stuff for garage sale in June. I went thru all the Tupperware and leftover containers, made sure they all had lids. I put all the “leftover” containers together and all the “Tupperware” together in a drawer with their lids. I almost emptied one lower cabinet and decided to store my Christmas dishes in the back of it instead of in big boxes I have to cart upstairs and down twice a year…yes, I still had my Winterberry dishes out, but it took so much less time to switch out to my man dishes than it usually does. Then, in front of the Christmas dishes I put water bottles and travel mugs we occasionally use, and on the bottom, some “give-away” food containers for hosted dinners and the paper plate/cutlery holder for my monthly crops. I also went thru my cookbook shelf and got rid of a few, and tidied up the vitamin shelf. It feels s good to be able to open drawers and cabinets and see right away what I have and not have them stick or spill out things. Also so glad I swapped out the Christmas dishes…I thought that would be a daunting job. Now we’re going to relax and watch a movie!
For us, the kitchen is a major hub of activity. In addition to usual meal prep & routines, it’s the place we chat, laugh, unwind, de-stress, talk about our days, bounce ideas of each other, pin important ‘artwork’ on the fridge, and where most of my girl friends stand when we have parties! 🙂
I think this will take more than an hour!
