The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in any home but when it is all cluttered it makes it much harder to actually be used as a functional space.

Not only will you feel better once this space is less junked up, you'll also save yourself time and energy as well.

There are several challenges within the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge that deal with this room of our house that I encourage you to read:

I've also created quite a few decluttering missions that accompany these challenges, to help you get this area of your home more manageable.

Whether you've done these missions when I've scheduled them during the year, or any other time doesn't really matter to me. I just want to celebrate your success, so here's your chance to show off some before and after pictures when you've done one of the missions. If you're ready to share now click here to begin!
