Decluttering the Kitchen

I was sitting at the dining room table earlier on, in a completely different chair that I would normally sit at, and I noticed that the kitchen (that I’d cleaned earlier) looked cluttered. It wasn’t so much to do with actual kitchen stuff, but more to do with paper, and other random items.

Why have I not noticed these clutter culprits even though I’ve been succeeding in making sure that the kitchen is clean and tidy at the end of each day? Maybe it’s because I’m handling the daily tasks so well without seeing them as so much of a chore. This is freeing up space in my brain to see the whole picture.

Then I found a photo of when the kitchen was quite tidy around 8 months ago, and I realised that I can keep things tidy if I put my mind to it. Having this new image in my mind, I can add another step into my kitchen routine from tomorrow to remove the random items.

Until next time…

    Yes! There tends to be too much stuff left on counters and tables here that no one puts away yet when I go on a rage induced decluttering spree, suddenly their random pieses of paper become crucial and key.
