31 Days of Spontaneous Organizing - Day #26: Kitchen Counters

Today is Day #26 of 31 days of spontaneous organizing! Your mini-challenge for today is a your kitchen counters!

Here are a couple of ideas and tips for when you organize your kitchen counters. If you have papers and miscellaneous things on there, throw away or re-locate. If you find you keep putting important papers there, consider a small vertical file to keep out of the way with some pretty file folders. Wipe everything down and try to keep as little on the counters as you are able to.

Oh, the clutter that can make it's way to your counters. Am I right? I don't have a lot of kitchen counter space - in fact, I've added a kitchen cart and a buffet just to get more for all the people we have over and need to have stuff out. I have one large appliance on there {my mixer} and a toaster. I also have our terry towels and paper towels and a knife block. On the cart I keep essentials near the stove.

Hi, Sugarplum

But, I really LOVE how, above, she organized her area next to her stove with the basket to hold all her little things. I'm going to do something like this! It just looks way nicer.

I have set up a coffee bar on our extended counter buffet. We have the Keurig sitting on top of a pull out drawer to hold coffee cups.


This counter actually does have a lot of stuff on it, but how it's set up makes it feel like it's organized and not so cluttered.
