Hello Cure-takers! How was your weekend? Did you get a chance to work on the third Kitchen Cure assignment, even amidst Halloween festivities? Did you restock? Reorganize? How's your kitchen feeling? So, to recap: By now you should have tackled your sticky cupboard shelves and scary refrigerator drawers. They should be cleaned-out and scrubbed. (Fresh and clean!) Hopefully you've also had time to do some good deep cleaning along the way, too — wash the floors, and windows too (if you're so lucky to have a window!).
You've also pitched or donated appliances that you don't use, or that clutter your shelves. It should be easy, not a chore, to open your kitchen cupboards and retrieve tools and dishes.
Now that you've done all this, you may find that you've thrown away some expired spices you need for Thanksgiving dinner. Or you want to reward yourself with that Dutch oven you've been saving up for all year. Now is the time! Restock, and also reorganize what's left of your supplies into a better configuration.
And if you're ahead of all of this (congrats if you are!) then time to think of a special project. A shelf? A new light fixture? Is there some small improvement you have been meaning to make to the kitchen? Then take this week and do it!
We are LOVING your photos on the Kitchen Cure Flickr Pool! It's so great to see how you are documenting your Kitchen Cure. Keep 'em coming!
