the kitchn cure
One thing that I have the hardest time with when working on my house is finishing a space. I start off cleaning my room and somehow end up in my office and then on the porch and hours go by and I have only done a few small things in every room of the house. Now I know some progress is better than none but I find myself getting frustrated that I cannot finish a room. Sometimes I wish I could walk into my den and think "Wow, everything has a place!" So my mission has been to start and finish cleaning and decorating one room at a time.
I have been a fan of Apartment Therapy for some time now but one of the things I enjoy the most is their "cure" projects. I first tried their January Cure and LOVED it. They send you an email each day with steps to conquer a goal for your home. It is so helpful to have that reminder and to break it down into small steps that, even on the busiest days, are possible to complete. Well now October is about the kitchen.
Apartment Therapy's sister site The Kitchn has just started their version called the Kitchn Cure for this month. You can go to their site and sign up and they will send you daily emails to help you get your kitchen back in shape. For example, Day 1 was to declutter and clean the fridge and freezer. I forget how good it feels to have a clean fridge. Sign up today and lets get our kitchens back in shape!
