had to pull out the stove to fix it so it was a good opportunity to clean all around it.

Today didn't really get anything too much done in the kitchen. Son and his fiance were here so mainly we sat around and visited. Maybe tomorrow I can get back in and get something done in there.

emoticon Yes, I do. Especially since that is a better way of describing my spare bedroom than catch all.

Jackie -- I love the fiesta ware vintage pieces and all those new ones too. That is my kind of thing to collect, and also use daily. I love to have different colors, different styles....but it's neat when the different pieces kind of "fit" together. What do they call that?

eclectic....

don't you just love it when they come up with a sophisticated sounding term like that to encompass bringing a lot of different styles together that are still harmonious when combined artistically?

I have a "junk" cabinet that I just recognized as a "junk" cabinet. The plan is to clear it out so that I have more space to store my dishes. I collect and use Fiesta dishes. I love all the different colors. However, they keep coming out with new colors that I have to buy. emoticon

Need more space. But I do use them unlike my china dishes.

Made room for some items to be stored in the top cabinets this morning by pulling a box marked "crystal" out of one. Imagine my surprise to discover that it was the same pattern (but a different size glass) that we just brought from MIL's home and stored in another cabinet. So....it must have been some she gave me years ago and I forgot. Now it is all together on one top shelf and several more items have been relegated to the estate sale. Stuff, stuff, stuff. At least now I'm getting a handle on what I have and not saving things I don't really love. Ultimate goal is to someday be able to have these things within reach to use on special occasions.

That's a great idea. I have a built in area for my microwave. No telling what is lurking behind it.

Our bar is the "catch-all". A friend of ours who has remodeled his home extensively suggested that we just remove the bar to add more space to the room. But we'd lose all the storage under the bar...still thinking about that one.

I, too, have a spot in the kitchen that collects clutter. I am going to make a goal to keep it clutter free while I focus on the closets.

My kitchen isn't looking too bad but there are a few areas where paperwork and other clutter seem to breed! I'm going to concentrate on clearing those areas and keeping them clear.

Went through the silverware and utensil drawers -- picked out the excess "odd" pieces and measuring spoons etc that I don't use and packed them up to go to the estate sale.

Right now I am focused on just keeping the kitchen tidy. I am completing my closet organization at the moment. Whew! the neater the closets become, the more messy my living room. That is where I am (temporarily) depositing items for donation or to give to my mom. Or, to place elsewhere that makes more sense.

Threw out some outdated food today...I hate doing that...what a waste. That's why I need to plan my meals more consistently...well, that and the fact that planning my meals would get me to eat healthier. Tomorrow, more work in the pantry...

Redid a lot of my kitchen last spring/summer (diy new counter/flooring that my son n I did) - the counters tops are my bane - always cluttered - will continue to work on that.

My kitchen definitely needs an overhaul, but I think I have to fix the clogged pipe before I can really start cleaning. It's hard to clean when your sink won't drain.

I'm in desperate need of a whole kitchen overhaul, but today I had time to take all the appliances off the kitchen counters, give the counters a good scrubbing, and wiped down all of the applicances as well.. It sure needed it! I think I'll cut my kitchen into zones and try and tackle at least one zone a day for the rest of the week..
Happy Spring Cleaning all :) emoticon

I think I'm going for the overhaul. I'm actually in the process of doing this, anyway. MIL's house will have an estate sale soon, so I've been going through all the drawers and cabinets and getting those things out that I haven't used in years --- or ever. We have brought a lot of things from her house to ours, and then done an exchange. There is still a lot of area to be covered and the pantry has yet to be done.

Spring begins this month. And, with it - Spring Cleaning!

Let's start with the kitchen. You have a choice - a quick tidy overhaul or some serious organization of the cabinets and drawers.

Take your pick. Come back and report. Support and accountability awaits. (And, of course, a goodie!)
