5 Weeks To A Clean and Organized Home wk1

Today's challenge from Christian HomeKeeper™ Network is the counter tops and small appliances.
Its time to clean the toaster oven, microwave, blender, food processor, and coffee maker. Did I miss anything? Once those are cleaned and OFF the counters it is time to give the counters a good scrubbing. Bleach out any stains (I use a Mr Clean magic eraser) and don't forget the junk that collects in the cracks and edges.
Now that the counters are clean put back the appliances in a nice neat way or see if they can move to another area to clear up counter clutter.

I did this yesterday while cleaning cabinets. I actually threw away so much STUFF that I could put my blenders (I have 3) and such in a cabinet. A good thing too as I have barely any counter space! I also put my knife racks in the cabinet over the microwave for more space and to keep Bub from having access to them. I hope one day to pare down the knives and get one of those magnets that holds them on the wall.

Now I am off to finish my cabinets and pantry!

pantry just FILLED ANOTHER 50 gal trash can!
pantry shelves- clean, organized, cans and spices wiped clean

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hi. It's good to get my kitchen cleaned up. I know we'll be happy for the extra space we created when we're done. It sounds like you're doing wonderful. A 50 gal. trash bag? That's impressive!
    Have a great weekend.

  2. thank you for leaving a comment! after all was said and done yesterday we filled THREE 50 gallon trash bags!! those, 2 50 gal trashcans of wood, yard debris, MORE junk and a small pile of things (mismatched plates and a ham carving board) line my trash pile today (sorry Mr Trash Collector!)

    but we are all so happy to find space and the freedom having less things brings!
