Hello dear friends!
I’ve put together a kitchen-focused challenge for us! It’s called The Well-Kept Kitchen Challenge and it’s designed to be a way to purge, clean, and organize our kitchen spaces in a way that feels approachable and less daunting than flinging cabinets open and stressing all the way out.
I’ll be the first to admit that my kitchen has gotten away from me. Drawers are spilling over with utensils, cabinets are filled with half bottles of cleaning products, the junk drawers seems to be contagious and has infected several other spaces in the kitchen and listen… enough is a enough.
The Well-Kept Kitchen Challenge is a daily two-week kitchen cleaning program inspired by @mariekondo and @lifeinjeneral. Each day we’ll tackle one single cleaning project (like today: clean under the sink), purge, clean, and take notes of and likely buy on Amazon) the sorts of organizational systems that will work in that space.
I’ll share my spaces with you each day and show you the way’s I’ve purged, organized, and the systems and bins I’m thinking of placing in those spaces.
We’ll spend one week of cleaning a kitchen zone every day. The second week we’ll install our organization. Taa-daa! Just like that we’ll take back control of our kitchens.
The hope is to make our kitchens clean, efficient, and places we want to spend some time (now that we know all of our wooden spoons will be in the same place).
The Challenge will start today (February 1st!) and be documented in the my Instagram Stories.
The invitation is to take on as much or as little of the challenge as you’d like. This is meant to serve and inspire you – not stress you out! Listen, I’m the first person to want to wiggle my way out of an organization project. It’s just doesn’t come naturally to me. This challenge is meant to circumvent my escapist tendencies and help you work around yours, too.

Thank you for joining me in this.
Thank you in advance for not judging my junk drawer. It’s a doozy.
My love to you!
