A snapshot of Curees' progress from our Kitchen Cure Flickr Pool: Kitchen Cure participant kknina shows us her finished countertop: "Makes sense to keep the bread on this side since the cutting board is in the highest drawer." Nice!
I found this old oven grill and S-hooks at the local salvation shop. Living in Whitehorse, Yukon and living in an rental keeps my improvement options limited. This place beside the oven was always sort of useless before now. Finding the stud in this old house was the hardest part!
Well, Cure-takers, if you're not there yet, you're pretty close. You put four weeks of hard work in and, if all went according to plan, your kitchen is clean, healthy and organized. And that means you're ready to take on spring cooking with your kitchen in tip-top shape.
There were over 2,600 of you on this journey and you all did amazing work. I know not everyone is done, but I encourage you to stay the course. Join the leagues who are finished and cheering you on from their sparkling, organized, cheerful kitchens.

Hello, Cure-takers! You're in the homestretch of your Kitchen Cure. You've cleaned, decluttered, and reorganized. Doesn't it feel great!? Now as we approach the finish line we'd love to see just one photo with an improvement you've made during the Cure. It's inspiration to finish strong! Read on to submit your own photo.
Happy Monday, Cure-takers! You are almost DONE! You have cleared out your cupboards, tidied your refrigerator, deep-cleaned and decluttered, scrubbed and beautified. What's left in your kitchen? Do you need one new pot to pull your cooking equipment together? Do you need to restock with fresh spices, since the ones from 1998 are now safely disposed of? Do you need to finish a bit of cleaning, or a bit of painting, or hang a new shelf? What's left to make your kitchen ready for spring cooking?
This Week's Assignment: Restock Pantry & Cookware

Cure Takers: 2,649
This week is the final week of work. Phew! We will assume you have sorted through your refrigerator, freezer, cupboards and drawers. You have gotten rid of rancid oils, spoiled condiments, and tasteless spices. All the surfaces are clean. Now you're ready to stock your kitchen so that you can actually use it.
Now we will focus on the ingredients you need to cook the kinds of food you like to eat. You will also think about any new tools you need and can afford. Of course, you'll also have fresh flowers in the kitchen.
