Home Organization 101: The Kitchen

Hello friends, I have a very exciting post for you today! One of my favorite bloggers is hosting a 14-week home organization challenge with a new area of the home to be worked on every week. I don’t have every space that she has assigned to be organized but for each week that I can work on I will post my recap here. Click the picture above to check it out, it’s not too late to join!

I have a confession, I have a bit of OCD and perfectionism rolled into one when it comes to organizing. This is pretty new to me but Eric will gladly tell you how crazy I am with organizing our home. When I was younger you could barely see my bedroom floor at times but I have grown to love look of simplicity and organization goes hand in hand with that.

Here is how my total kitchen organization went – please ignore the quality of my photos, they were taken with my iphone. I was terrible about remembering to take before pictures so I only have a few, oops.

Amid the chaos:

The drawers:


This drawer pretty much looks the same

The cabinets:

After

Above the microwave

Above the fridge (I know it looks messy but it’s because it’s bulky appliances)

A halfway before picture, I remembered a little too late

The clean kitchen when it was all done:

So pretty with the lights

I am so excited for the rest of the rooms in the apartment! I’m already pretty organized everywhere but it’s always good to reevaluate how things are working and do a good deep clean of everything. I hope you enjoyed my kitchen tour!
