52 Weeks to Organized Home Challenge

Posted by beachgirl on 01/12/2014

Just after the new year, I read about this 52 Weeks to an Organized Home challenge.  Each week, a new assignment is posted and, during the week, you’re supposed to work on that challenge.  Last week’s challenge was to work on your kitchen countertops and sink.  My fiancee and I decided to partake in the challenge and got to work on last week’s challenge.

We got rid of a few things we no longer needed and moved some other things to another room.  We also ordered a knife bar to hang our knives on (using a gift card we got for Christmas).  This will allow us to move our knives off of the counters and get rid of our knife block (which takes up a lot of room).  We can’t finish the assignment until the the knife bar arrives, but it should arrive sometime this week.  We also ordered a few things to help with next week’s assignment (kitchen drawers & kitchen cabinets); once those arrive and we organize the cabinets, we’ll also be able to get the wine bottles off the countertops.  I’ll post some before and after pictures once the knife bar is installed.

If you’re interested in partaking in the challenge, the website is: http://www.home-storage-solutions-101.com/organized-home.html
