52 week home organized challenge

One of my New Years resolutions is to live a more organized life. I often find myself frantically looking around for something that I need right away and it shouldn't be like that! We have a big year ahead of us and I want nothing more than to start it off organized. I have a few ideas to help me accomplish this but this 52 week home challenge that i found on Pinterest and a few other blogs, is a big one. I don't follow always follow through with things like this but I am going to try my best!! My goal is to post before and after pictures. Some could be embarrassing but the end result will be great!! (I hope)

Week #1: Countertops & Sinks
I am focusing on my kitchen counters and sinks. Sometimes after a long day at work and cooking dinner, the kitchen doesn't get cleaned. It is rare but sometimes happens. I sleep better with a clean kitchen! Our big problem is letting things pile up such as mail, receipts, and other junk. Here is the picture of the counters before....

and after...

Cleaning them off/up only took me 20 mins. All of the candy on one of the counters is now in a bag and going to my school. I will make some teachers happy tomorrow!! The dishes are now in the dishwasher and the appliances we don't use are put away. I hope I keep up with it (with Chris's help). The counters are not a dumping ground!

If you want to join me on this journey, you can find more information about it here. Leave a comment if you are doing it so I can check out your blog. We can hold each other more accountable!
