The Clutter Challenge – a Home Reset for January (week 2)
Are you ready for week 2 of The Clutter Challenge? Even if you didn’t finish everything up from last week or if you haven’t started, jump right into week 2 and follow the checklist. Each week, we’re working through different areas of our homes following the checklist. We’re starting this week in the kitchen. Keep reading for links to posts and tips for getting your kitchen decluttered this week.
You’ll find that there’s a specific order in the free printable list for the month. It’s important that you follow this order for decluttering your home but complete it in a way that makes sense for your schedule. Some recommendations: one task a day, set a timer for 10-15 minutes, or 2-3 tasks a day until completed. This order matters because it will take you through the house in a logical, sequential, and efficient way. If you haven’t grabbed the checklist yet, there’s a link down below 🙂
The goal for this week is to work on the Kitchen Checklist and do one or two of these things every day this week.
- clear + clean kitchen counters
- refrigerator – clean it out, wipe it down (here’s a post on how to clean your appliances in under an hour)
- freezer – clean it out, wipe it down
- kitchen cabinets – tackle all of them or just one or two
- kitchen drawers – tackle all of them or just one or two
- pantry or food storage area – empty, get rid of expired food, and return items
- kitchen tools + small appliances – donate extras, doubles, and unused small appliances
- under kitchen sink – clean it out and keep the necessities
- kitchen towels – repurpose anything worn or with holes and keep the best
