Organized Kitchen Counters In Small Apartment

by Alison Cox
(Atlanta, GA)

Knife block is a new (used) addition bought from the thrift store, so is the beautiful pitcher holding the spatulas and such. Totally freed up drawer space which will help in the coming challenges.

Got rid of my old dish drain, it was the basic plastic one and replaced it with this beauty Santa got me from Costco :-) A little hook I screwed under the cabinet and a chip clip is holding up my rubber gloves. The flower brush in a cute plastic container

Alison says:

I live in an apartment, and my itty bitty kitchen is (WAS) always a mess.

I was so excited to start this challenge that I forgot to take before pictures.

But honestly. I am so embarrassed. Just imagine the worst possible scenario and it probably looks good compared to what mine was.

I am NEVER letting it get like that again, so honestly, I'm glad I don't have the before pictures.

I don't even want to think about it when I can look at my organized, clean, clutter free kitchen!

Taylor says:

Alison, you did a wonderful job. You really should be proud of your accomplishments!

Put Items No Longer Used Up For Sale On EBay

by A Real Housewife In Houston

A Real Housewife in Houston blogged about her accomplishments from the first week's challenge.

One of the things she did was put up a couple items she was decluttering from her home for sale on eBay.

That is definitely a good way to make a little cash while also getting rid of clutter!

I Have Taken Possession Of My Kitchen Again

by Geneviève
(Gatineau, Québec, Canada)

My super clean kitchen #1

My super clean kitchen #1

My super clean kitchen #1 My super clean kitchen #2 cause it doesn't fit in one picture What I got rid of: a knife holder, a chandelier, a broken bowl, 3 knives, a vinegar holder...

Today I cleared off my kitchen counters, my table and sink!

It was quite easy because I don't really like to cook, so I don't have a lot of small appliances in there.

I don't have any pictures of my kitchen before, but I took a picture of what I got rid of and one of my kitchen free of those items and clear of any dirty dishes, cause there was a lot! (plumbing problem over the week-end... so I have not been able to wash anything during 3 days in a row.... ouash!)

So now I have taken possession of my kitchen again, here are the pictures!
