Ready for week 2? This week we’re tackling an organizing project in our kitchen. The kitchen is probably your powerhouse and the hub of your home. With all that use it can get cluttered and disorganized in a hurry. So let’s start with a little organizing this week, shall we?

Here are a couple simple ways I’ve organized my kitchen:
A couple simple and inexpensive tricks really help keep order in the pantry. Check out this post on simple pantry organization.
Recipes all over the place? Keep them together in recipe binders – I’m a bit extreme, but it makes meal planning and recipe storage so easy.
Am I the only one that experiences this in their kitchen? Check out my easy trick for no more sliding drawers.


The Rules:

  • Organize your whole kitchen or a drawer – just pick something!
  • Take pictures of your finished product (you can take before pictures if you’d like).
  • Post your picture on your blog OR if you don’t have a blog, post them on a Pinterest Board (check out this post to see how to link up a Pinterest Board).
  • On Friday of this week, we’ll open up the voting – voting will end on Sunday and the 3 winners (with the most votes) will be announced on Monday.
  • Be sure to ‘LIKE’ all the Top Organizers and ‘FOLLOW’ on Pinterest too (the links are below to make it easy for you!)

Want to see this week’s three prizes?

1 Year FREE subscription to 5 Dinners in 1 Hour, plus a Clean Eating Slow Cooker eBook

5 dinners in 1 hour is a make ahead meal plan system for effortless weeknight dinners. This is menu planning made easy. Spend 1 hour in the kitchen and have 5 dinners assembled for the week. Just bake, broil, slow cook or grill to have dinner on the table faster than going to the drive thru lane. Choose from Classic, Clean Eating and Gluten free plans. Each menu comes with recipes (including side dish suggestions), grocery list, assembly directions and cooking instructions all in an easy to follow format.
2nd place will win:

$100 worth of Fridge Coaster products

Don’t you hate scrubbing your refrigerator bins and surfaces? So do we! And now you don’t have to. We’re the husband and wife duo behind Fridge Coaster. Fridge Coasters are super absorbent “liners” that come in different sizes to fit all high traffic areas of your refrigerator. Place under produce in the crispers to keep your veggies fresh longer, or under milk and salad dressing in the doors to absorb drips that would normally dry to the bottom of your bin, ewww. Fridge Coasters provide time saving function and fashion to the inside of your refrigerator. In addition, we’re really proud to say that our sustainable product is made 100% in the USA of 30% (or more) post consumer product. We then use a UV-dried printing process which means the ink never bleeds beyond its original printed shape even when fully submerged in water! How awesome is that? Long story short, Fridge Coasters will save you a ton of time and put a smile on your face every time you open the fridge.
Visit www.fridgecoaster.com to see their amazing products!
