  • I keep almost nothing on them; coffee pot, utensil crock, knife block - I keep everything else in cabinets. It's so hard to de-clutter, I did it a few years ago by taking a hard look at what was on the counters and how often I really used them.

  • OMG my counters are the catch-all. Mostly because of ds. We have everything on there-receipts, mail, even sweet potatoes lol. He's always missing something too. Right now he's lost his stamp that he uses at work. Hasn't seen it in a week. I suggest clearing off the whole thing and going through it all. Put back on the counters what should be there like a toaster and a blender lol.

  • Coffee pot & toaster on one with nothing else in front of them. About 4 cookbooks in the corner. Cutting boards at end near frig. All these things are against the wall and nothing else in front or around them. No knick knacks etc. It's not tons of counterspace but all the room in front of these things is work area.
