Our Lovely Clean Kitchen Table !

Here is our lovely clean kitchen table !             If any one has read old posts from my blog you will know it's always my mission to keep it clear from clutter. It is always filled with library books, magazines,mail, school stuff and maybe a project I'm currently working on. Then when it's dinner time I will push them all down one one end to eat . After reading a post from Rachel M from Simple Savings  I was motivated to clear it once again , that was last week so I'm really pleased to report it's now Tuesday and still looking great . I have to admit I love our table it seats 8 and  its from "The Savoy Collection" By the fine old timber Co. Its hand crafted from recycled timbers from the Savoy Building in London. We brought it in 2002 from a company in Fremantle. right next door to the Fremantle markets. Kev and I love it, so in saying that it probably deserves not to be covered in stuff all the time. It's my plan to keep it free from daily clutter. So I felt it was blog worthy! I love that it's made from recycled timber . Just wondering does any one else have the same problem with clutter on the kitchen table.


  1. I had exactly the same problem until last year when I started the keep the table clear war with my family. Mostly now I'm winning. My husband even think that newspapers are decorative items. He doesn't just pile them on the table, he drapes them over the back of the chairs! Grrrr.

  2. Hi Veggiegobbler maybe he's trying to protect the table and chairs from spills and other food contact ...lol...Thanks for posting I love reading every ones comments ...Its been 5 days and things are going well so far I do have a few magazines on there still that I was reading at lunch time I will remove them shortly ...

  3. Looking good Sherrie.

    And no my table is always clear after using - but then I am a tidy up nazi!! I strictly follow the rule "a place for everything and everything in it's place". Drives my head in at times too.

  4. Hi Lizardman..That's my plan to have a place for every thing and every thing in it's place ..we don't have enough storage in our house which can be a problem ... I'm always a work in progress de-cluttering trying to only buy only what we really need ... Sherrie :)

  5. Aahh.....be ruthless Sherrie, absolutely ruthless with stuff!! Do you apply the IN/OUT rule? nothing comes in without something going out.

  6. I try to apply that rule some times. some times I get some thing new like a thermal cooker ,but haven't decided what to get rid of yet. I need to clean out my 2 kitchen draws that house all my pot pans and metal cook ware...there are a few things in there that I could get rid of ...I hate it some times when you get rid of some thing then later you see one in a magazine and they suggest another use for it and you get excited for a few minutes before you remember you got rid of it. boohoo. Although I think more these days about recycling and reusing ...like when I get new jeans the old ones I cut down for shorts ...I find it hard to be too ruthless.Maria you look really organised. Especialy as I love crafty things I can usually find a use for lots of stuff and Jack loves making crafts so I alway keep cardboard, bits and pieces I did have a useful box for Jack but got too much stuff and was over flowing ...most of our house is fine.So that's two jobs now on my list for this week clean pots & pans draws and clean & organize computer table . Cheers

  7. I read somewhere that a good way to store stuff in your baking cupboard is to store them upright instead of flat. You would need to make some pigeon holes out of wood that go from the floor of the cupboard to the top and then all the way back to touch the back wall too. Not sure if you follow me or if that is something you could use. I haven't tried it yet but it is on my list of things to get around to.

    Yes, I am organised. I used to work as a Bookkeeper and it was my favourite job ever. You end up being really anal about everything, although I have had a friend who was much worse than me. LOL. Growing up i was a hoarder, couldn't bear to throw out even a train ticket. Now I have swung the other way completely. It does backfire occassionally. Like last year, I transferred my entire CD music collection onto iTunes and then onto my iPod and threw out the original discs. Well, my computer crashed and now it all only exists on my ipod....grrr
