Home Organization Revisited (Week 1 “The Kitchen”)

Its a new year and with that comes the need to update, clean, and re-organize our homes & organizing systems.  After many requests, I decided to re-visit my Home Organization 101 challenge.  There are over 8,000 of you who participated in the challenge when it started.  Many of you had to take some weeks off for different reasons. Now is a great time to join back in and get your house organized!  I will be posting the weekly challenge, and a link to my original post, so you can follow along.  After you complete a challenge, you can link up to the original post here (if you have a blog), or you can share your before and after pictures with our organization group (here). Make sure to “join” the group.  Now its time to get started!

    How do I “link up” with your post? I want to follow this on my blog!

    • Brittany, you can choose any picture from the challenge on the blog and save it to your computer. Then upload it to your blog anywhere and copy + paste the url to the challenge or my blog. :)

  6. I had added your button to my site, but joined late in the series so I’m excited that you are offering this challenge again. I can’t wait to get started!

    My kitchen needs done again so bad…. my 1 year old is constantly “rearranging” all of my drawers! We also just repainted the kitchen, so it’ll be nice to have a complete fresh start (again!) :)

  8. Where did you get the awesome clock!?

  9. I am excited to be doing this 14 weeks of organization. I haven’t cleaned each cupboard in my kitchen since I moved in. Random ones have been cleaned here and there, but it always feels good to reorganize and pitch things that are not used.
    Thanks for being such an encouraging and fun blog!
