30 Days to a Clean & Organized Kitchen

Are you ready for a clean and organized kitchen? I am! Though I could spend an entire day cleaning and organizing my kitchen, I’ve decided to break this enormous job into small, manageable tasks. My kitchen is disorganized right now and I’ve been meaning to set aside the time to tackle it. I procrastinate though and it never seemed to get done. With the new year upon us, I’m finally going to get the job done. I hope you’ll join me in this fun cleaning challenge: 30 days to a clean and organized kitchen!

30 Days to a Clean & Organized Kitchen - Get your kitchen in shape for the new year with this fun cleaning challenge.


I made a handy printable that can be placed on your fridge or household bulletin board. Every day, you’ll have a different cleaning and/or organizing task to complete. I tried to cover the areas that I need to do in my kitchen and hopefully it will cover the same ones you need to tackle as well.

Here’s a rundown of the tasks each day. If you don’t want to do it in this order, you can change it up. I would cross off the day once you are done so you can track your progress.
