Episode 056: Clear Those Countertops



This episode about clearing the clutter on our countertops kicks off the Spring Cleaning Series in April. This one is for anyone who thinks it’s time to up the organization in their home, not just busy Moms of littles.


Full disclosure: I hate cleaning. Yep! I can organize the heck out of your pantry, closet, or garage, but the actual cleaning part is not my fave.


So this month, I’ll be first easing into spring cleaning from an organizer’s perspective, starting with our countertops that can easily be considered the catch-all for everything! Whether it’s the never-ending mail pile, the life-size kid artwork, the works in progress, the food-stained, extra appliances, or your makeup, yesterday’s laundry, and your child’s random collection of whatever they’ve picked up on walks recently, it’s time we cleared the clutter to see the blessings all around us!


Don’t let that stuff get in the way of your creativity or your peace of mind. It’s time for a good purge, donation, and adding in the proper organization to beautifully contain the things you are keeping on your countertops!
