Kitchen Cure Check-In Week 2: How Organized Are You?

Fall 2010 Kitchen Cure

This Week: Clean out Equipment, Tools & Gadgets and More Deep CleaningTime Left: Two weekends down. 2 1/2 weeks to go! • Cure Takers: 2500 and counting... (newbies, sign up here)

Hello Cure-takers! We're really into the thick of things now with the second Kitchen Cure assignment last Friday. Did you have time over the weekend to go through your tools, gadgets, and cookware? What did you get rid of? What did you keep? Are your drawers more organized? Tell us how it's going!

This is my personal favorite part of the Kitchen Cure; I feel like it's really the meat of it for my kitchen. Pots and pans get shifted around during the cooking seasons; drawers get jumbled and disorderly, and little gadgets creep into the kitchen. What's really necessary? What makes your kitchen feel beautiful, healthy, and organized? Do you just have too much stuff? Is it too cluttered? Then donate it! Get rid of it!

Kitchen Cure Week 2: Clean Out Tools & Gadgets

And then, when you have really decided what to keep, go to town on organizing and putting things in their proper place. I did quite a bit of this in the last couple of Kitchen Cures, as I was in a new kitchen and still figuring everything out. Here's a look back at what I did:

Kitchen Cure Update: New Pot Lid Rack and Better Storage
Kitchen Cure Check-In: Decluttered Cabinets and Storage

Next week I'll show you my own flurry of special projects, which I finished up this past summer: Painting the kitchen a fresh new color, refurbishing a breakfast nook, and turning an unused coat closet into a cheery pantry.

Tell us how it's going, and if you need any encouragement!
