Check out these creative ways to help declutter kitchen counters!
Although I hate to admit it, I actually spend quite a lot of time in the kitchen. Between the hour long pep talks I give myself each time I know dinner is fast approaching and the act of cooking itself, that’s half my day gone. Just like that.
It’s no surprise then that by the end of of it all, my kitchen counters can look really untidy – and that’s even after I’ve scrubbed them clean. I have about a million things that ‘temporarily live’ on its surfaces, i.e stacks of papers, books, wires, cookware (you name it, its there!) I tell myself that these are things that need to be there, but who am I kidding?
It’s all just clutter…
So in honour of a new year and a resolution to get my life into some sort of order, I’ve decided to tackle said clutter head on. Thats right. I’ve found some easy solutions for ways to declutter kitchen counters. You’re gonna love them, I can feel it in my bones!
