Bridget’s Remodel Part 4 – Organizing to Renovate

Ok, I would be lying if I said I was not scared to totally gut my kitchen with two young children. The good thing about panicking and overthinking is you get a jump start on preparing. There were several moments when my husband and I just stood in the kitchen, making list and staring at each other. This week I am going to walk through how I got organized before the demo started…

  • Empty out and consolidate as early as possible
    • You can take items that you don’t use on a daily basis and start packing them away first
  • Purchase clear bins for organizing items
    • I went out and bought big clear bins to start putting away the items that I don’t use every day
    • CLEAR is a key factor so you can see inside the bins in case you need something – you can see it!

  • Purge Time
    • If you have not used it – get rid of it!
    • This is a perfect opportunity to get rid of items and household gadgets that have not been touched in a long time
  • Get your kids involved
    • Have them help organize and relocate the snack station
    • This gets kids familiar with kitchen items and excited for the renovation
