Ah, another new year! Why is that we all get the urge to start fresh, organizing things, changing our lives for the better? I don’t know… I do know that I LOVE the energy that comes from a new year and this year is no exception. We have almost been in our house a FULL year and I am happy to say that we are feeling more and more settled every day.
The next thing on my ever growing to-do list is to go back through our home, room by room and simplify, declutter and organize. The word of the year is SIMPLIFY in our lives. Less things. Less busy. Less, less and more less.
As I started attacking our kitchen, I partnered with Tuesday Morning to bring 10 quick and easy tips for refreshing your kitchen in the new year.
1.) Disposed of Expired Food. I quickly sorted out expired items. This made my pantry feel instantly more spacious and less cluttered.
2.) Wiped out cabinets & drawers. I gave each shelf & drawer a quick wipe with a paper towel to remove accumulated dust. Before I put items back in the cabinets, I organized them in these cute baskets I found for $7.99 and $9.99 (compare to price of $16 and $20). Organizing the contents of our pantry was much easier with baskets. No more hunting around for items.
3.) Lined Drawers. I lined all my drawers with no slip drawer liner (which I picked up for $5.99, compare to price of $13.99) to help prevent items from shifting around. This worked especially well in my spice drawer.
