Weekend Cooking: The Kitchn’s Kitchen Cure

The Kitchn Cure 2015

One of my favorite recipe websites, The Kitchn hosts an annual Kitchen Cure event to declutter, tidy, clean and organize the kitchen. Its a 20 day program. Once you sign up with your email, you’re given a daily alert as the day’s task. This is actually going to be my first year partaking in this event. Its one I’ve seen, but always forget about, or see after the fact and don’t actually finish.

Now that I’ve been working full, the attention I give to the kitchen has dwindled to scouring the pantry and the fridge for midnight snacks. Although my tummy is happy, I am not. Stuff has just been piling up (those damned Tupperware containers) and its really time to downsize the junk. I’ve been wanting to re-organize it all summer, but I keep putting it off. I’m hoping that this 20 day challenge will actually get me to make some valid and much needed changes to the kitchen.

Does anyone else want to join with me?

A More Mindful Kitchen

This year’s Cure is led by Dana Velden, the author of our Weekend Meditations column, and of the new book, Finding Yourself in the Kitchen: Kitchen Meditations and Inspired Recipes from a Mindful Cook. Dana will offer you a daily assignment to get your kitchen a little cleaner and your mind a little clearer when it comes to cooking and loving your home just a little bit more. You’ll end with a cleaner kitchen and a refreshed love of your space

  1. Off to clean out my fridge! Cheers from Carole’s Chatter!

  2. Great idea. We got rid of a ton of plastic containers last year. They are such a mess.

  3. It’s a necessity for me, my fridge is fairly small and there’s not enough room unless I am merciless about using or throwing away.

  4. What timing- I have been doing quite a bit cleaning out this week. My fridge needed serious help as something spilled in the back and I didn’t notice until I cleaned out the bottom. Yuck!
    Great website.

  5. I have done a similar challenge for cleaning my blog and it was very helpful. Some of the suggestions I never would have considered on my own. I have company coming, so maybe I will give it a try.

  6. I’m with you. I have been purging lately, not just the kitchen but closets too.

    • You should read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It did wonders for my home when I decluttered a few months ago. The trick with that book is that you did everything in one weekend, so you could really tell the difference once everything was out of the house. It was refreshing and eerie seeing so many empty spaces around the home.
