Extreme Kitchen Declutter

10:54 AM | |

Declutter wasn’t exactly what I expected. I thought it would be an easy process since I had 4 of my big kids helping me. It wasn’t until I pulled everything out that I realized that we had a lot of cooking ware and appliances.

Most of the appliances were crockpots, hot pots, instant pots, a ninja foodie, and more. We also had a ton of cookware because I got a new set at Costco and along with new storage containers. I was trying to eliminate the majority of the cookware and Tupperware containers that didn’t have lids or were damaged.

Out with the old in with the New

My main goal was to rearrange the whole downstairs area with a new couch, bookstand, coffee stand, and tv stand. I knew that I had to declutter the kitchen first as this was the hub for our family. It was not a task that I expected to be a two-day project. The massive about of ‘things’ we had was ridiculous, but for our family of 9. It was realistic and a necessity to make sure the kids were well fed.

Thankfully I had the help of my oldest 4 who assisted me with cleaning as we went through every dishware, cookware, and the many small appliances. I don’t think they enjoyed it as much as I did, but kids don’t?! We also cleaned out every cabinet and wiped them down with a vingear-based solution to sanitize and clean.

Declutter City Life

Living in the inner city surrounded by close approximation between houses. We tend to deal with insects and rodents that are not welcome. Therefore, at least once a month, it’s essential to clear things out of corners, and dark spaces, behind the large appliances like the refrigerator, deep freezer, and stove.

How to Get Things Done with a Newborn

This extreme kitchen decluttering took some time to get done as I was tending to a newborn baby at the same time. I had to wear her in my wrap to calm her down or put her to sleep so I can get through this process.

Also, snacks and a bouncing chair were also my other options if she was wide awake and didn’t want to be held. Having 5 older siblings. She sometimes wanted to get down and move around.

Declutter My Life

I’m always decluttering and cleaning my house. With 9 people living in one house, it easily accumulates things we don’t necessarily need. I try to declutter at least once a month, but I never miss the opportunity to do a deep decluttering and cleaning during Spring Cleaning.
