how to declutter my kitchen when getting organized

Have you been wondering, “how do I declutter my kitchen?” If you have been thinking about getting organized, the kitchen can be a great place to start! So , today is the day to find something to toss from drawer in the kitchen you can’t open without pushing stuff down. It’s a perfect place to begin when decluttering the kitchen.

Now, you might be thinking, why didn’t Jamie say to start with the dishes or the drinkware or the spices or the spoons? Because choosing a super easy category gives you a quick win which can be just the boost to jumpstart the rest of the categories. Take a small bite of a big project and you’ll keep going, bite off a big project and you might lose steam.

Picking one random thing from a “junk” drawer might not seem like a big success, but it will get you started in the right direction. Plus, clearing something out of storage, frees up space to put something away.

Carefully stick your fingers in the drawer to push the contents down enough to be able to pull open the drawer. What do you see? Maybe broken rubber bands, crumpled take-out ketchup packets, a stale pack of gum? Find one thing to “toss” out. If it is still good just toss it out of your house by sharing or donating it. If it is true trash then you know where it goes.

If you have time, look for one or two more tosses. You might even challenge yourself to see how many things you can “toss” from the drawer in one minute! This is how to declutter the kitchen, choose one category then the next. You can’t do it all at once, but you can do it!

When it comes to decluttering my kitchen, one of my favorite organizing tools is a drawer organizer. You can use shallow box lids or even ice cube trays. But if you are looking for a custom fit tension dividers are a perfect solution. You can move them to create the exact storage you need and as your needs change you can adjust them.
