So I’ve been knee-deep in kitchen decluttering and spring cleaning these past two weeks (right there in the trenches with you guys who are participating in this month’s kitchen organization challenge as part of this year’s Organize & Refine Your Home Challenge).
I know that it can be tough to get started when it comes to the decluttering process. When you’re having trouble, my best advice is to start with the low-hanging fruit so to speak…the “no brainer” items. As I went through my most recent kitchen declutter, I compiled a list of 10 “No Brainers” that you can immediately place into the “toss” pile.
THE KITCHEN DECLUTTER TOSS LIST
In EVERY kitchen I’ve organized during my time as a professional organizer, there was always a kitchen cupboard that was overflowing with coffee mugs. Always. Many times, the homeowners didn’t even drink coffee or tea. I’d go as far as to deem it the #2 most common kitchen clutter culprit (second only to paper clutter).
Everyone can benefit from decluttering their mug collection. Of course, keep your favorites (like the ones that your child gave your for Mother’s Day), but the random giveaway mugs should go for sure.
