Kitchen Counter Organization Hall Of Fame {Part 6}

So many people have taken the kitchen counter organization challenge that I'm now sharing part 6 of the hall of fame! Wow!


Kitchen Organization Challenge
And trust me, when people clear their countertops of clutter and extra stuff and pare it down to the essentials, giving themselves lots of work space for food preparation and other tasks they're very happy.

It makes such a huge difference in their everyday lives!

If what you see below inspires you I urge you to join the weekly organizing challenges. You can check out all the details of the Week #1 Challenge here, which is what each of these readers did.

Then, once you've done these tasks go ahead and brag. I want to cheer you on. You can share your own before and after pictures here and I'll feature them here on the site.

She said, "We REALLY needed this challenge, so I’m doubly-glad it was first! We actually don’t have much counter space, or at least I thought we didn’t. Turns out it was just covered with crap that didn’t need to be there in the first place!"

You did a really great job Lee-Anne! I especially love the way you store your kitchen utensils.

Challenge Gave Motivation To Stop Procrastinating & It Looks Great

by Sandy
(Purcellville, VA)

After - 1

After - 1 After - 2 Before - 1 Before - 2

Sandy says:

Finding this 52-weeks to an organized home challenge gave me just the motivation I needed to stop procrastinating.

The reason it took me this long to get that first step accomplished was that I first had to do part of week 2 (reorganize some kitchen cabinets) and part of week 3 (reorganize pantry) before I could find a home for all the stuff you can see in the two "Before" pictures.

I was truly amazed at all the space I was able to free up and how much I was able to get off the counters as a result.

Taylor says:

This looks amazing Sandy! Great job on really three weeks of the challenge! :)

After After Before - see the counter clutter

Catalina from At Home, At Work, at Play shared before and after pictures when she took this challenge.

She has also been keeping up with the habit of keeping her kitchen sink clear. She says, "I have done this faithfully every day since I got my cupboards cleared. And yesterday, when I started dinner, my sink was clear. I was able to fill up the sink, toss my dirty dishes into the sink as I used them and loaded them all into the dishwasher while the lasagna was in the oven. Then all I had to do was the lasagna pan, the spatula and our dinner dishes. It was so nice to not have any 'extras.'"

Awesome Catalina!

Has This Inspired You To Get Organized?

Are you as amazed by the difference clearing your countertops can make to the look of your kitchen as I am?

If you've been inspired to get your own kitchen organized after seeing these before and after pictures from those who've taken the challenge I would encourage you to join the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge where we tackle a different room or type of item each week and over the course of the year get the whole house back in shape and decluttered.

Further, once you've done Week #1's challenge (which is what these readers did) than make sure to share your own photos here and I'll add them to the hall of fame.
