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!

  1. I love the idea to get the electronics off the counter. The hanging basket is brilliant for the hand-helds that need a recharge!

    I am NOT a fan of having utensil hanging off the bottom cabinet sides. Gross!!! Imagine how much dirt and stuff gets on them especially when sweeping or just walking past. Yuck!!!

    1. I can relate to that . I guess it depends on how high you plan to hang the rail and what type of utensils you put on it 🙂
