I was sitting on the couch taking a break yesterday and I was staring at my half empty mantel. Does anyone else leave empty spaces around the house after Christmas?? I took the Christmas decorations down, but I never put anything back up in their place. I do this quite often actually after Christmas. Mostly because I’m not sure what needs to go in it’s place. Often times I’m bored with what was there before. So, I just leave things empty. Give the house room to breathe for a while. And give my mind space to imagine. But, yesterday, it needed something. So, I shopped the house, and gathered together some winter looking items and there you have it!

Hey there friends! Have you joined our declutter challenge?? If you have then you have been hard at work decluttering your kitchen this week!! I hope it’s going well!! It’s never too late to join! You will start where everyone else started. 🙂
Remember the focus of this challenge is to get the clutter out. But, once you do that it might be fun, and honestly probably a great idea to implement some sort of organization. It doesn’t have to be fancy. It just has to work for you and your family.
Over the years I have shared a few kitchen organizing ideas. So, I thought I would round those up for you here today. (You may have already seen these in the email, but there’s a little something extra at the end ;)).
Hey there friends! Posting a little late today because yesterday got away from me! Seriously, I looked up last night and could not believe it was already 10pm! It was a busy but great day, so I’m not complaining at all!!
How’s the decluttering going?? Have you joined in on the challenge yet?? It’s not too late! Don’t know what I’m talking about?? You can get more information here and sign up!
As I was working through decluttering my kitchen I came across my baking sheets. They are fine. They work just fine. They are clean, but they don’t necessarily look it. Years of non-stick cooking spray build-up and maybe a bit of rust from the dishwasher has them looking pretty gross. So, I decided to try out something I have seen over and over on Pinterest. Maybe you’ve seen it too but haven’t tried it, because lets be real, some of those things are just too good to be true. Well, let’s see!!
Hey friends! As I was shoving freshly washed sheets into my linen closet today, I realized I needed an intervention…for myself. Anyone else need a clutter intervention?? It’s been a couple of years since I spent the majority of that year decluttering our entire house room by room. And, to be honest, I think I need to do it again. Our family has gone through a few transitions since then and stuff has piled up. All the storage is full and a lot of this have become disorganized. So I’m doing something about it!! Just say no to clutter in 2018!!
Another year has passed and here we are at the start of a new year. Each new year is met with excitement and energy. But, how far will that take you? Setting goals for the year is always a good way to give you some focus. Goals give you something to work towards.
