I hope you are all ready for some serious kitchen cleaning! This upcoming Monday is the start of our Spring Cleaning frenzy in the kitchen where we will be tackling one area of the kitchen every week and organizing and cleaning it. Here’s the schedule.
- Week One: Refrigerator and Freezer
Week Two: Pantry or Food Cupboard
Week Three: Pots and Pans and One Cupboard
Week Four: The Rest of Your Cupboards
Week Five: Spices and Utensils
I will post on Monday and you have until the following Monday to complete the task and comment or post about your progress.
While the rewards of having a well ordered kitchen is more than enough of a reward, to sweeten the deal, some of my sponsors have generously given some really awesome incentive rewards for those who participate in the carnival. Each time you participate, either as a blogger (using the Mr. Linky) or as reader in the comment section, you are entered into the drawing for these giveaways. How cool is that?
Let’s take a look at what you have the chance to win.
First, Julie from is offering you one free culture of choice ($11.99 value), such as one of her fabulous sourdoughs, or kombucha mushrooms, water or milk kefir grains, or yogurt starters (she has super easy to use ones that work with raw milk too!). This is a great opportunity to expand your collection of cultures.
Then, is offering a delicious combo of raw cheese and sausage! I just ordered a pretty large order of sausages from them and have loved everything I’ve tried so far. This grass fed beef is high quality and delicious and they have everything from salami and summer sausage to liverwurst. Their raw cheese also sounds amazing and they carry many different types. They are offering a one sausage and one raw cheese combo to one lucky winner. The value of this varies a little depending on what sausage you choose, but the package is worth about 20 dollars.
Marilyn from is giving away two amazing eco friendly easy to use cleaning tools. These cloths will last you a long time.
The Antibacterial Enviro Cloth (value $14.50) is super cool because all you need to do is use a little water and wipe and you will pick up 99 percent of germs from smooth surfaces! “The antibacterial Enviro Cloth is a multipurpose cleaning cloth which can be used dry or damp for cleaning walls, tiles, bathtubs, counters, metal surfaces, car interiors and more. The unique anti-bacterial cloth prevents cross contamination, traps germs inside the cloth and destroys them within a few hours. Clean these cloths by simply wringing it out and hanging to dry. Keep one in the bath, one in the kitchen, and one in the car or laundry.”
The Antibac Window Cloth (Polishing Cloth), worth $16.99, is also antibacterial but is especially made for cleaning glass. Once again, you only need to use water to use it.” The Antibac Window Cloth allows you to clean your windows, mirrors, and shiny surfaces with water alone. Clean dirty surface first with a moist Enviro Cloth then polish with the Window cloth for a guaranteed streak-free surface. On less dirty surfaces you can spray water on the surface and polish with the Window Cloth alone.
We tried this on a window with the sun shining on it. With substantially less effort the windows had no streaks. If you dislike window washing like I do, you will be delighted to obtain an effective cleaning cloth requiring less work.”
Chris from is giving away a 375 ml bottle of their amazing olive oil ($8.50 value). Their olives are grown on some of the oldest olive trees in California. The type of olive they use makes a tremendously mild olive oil. One of my favorite all time olive oils that is mild enough to make a good mayo! This is a great chance to try it for yourself. I personally love this olive oil.
And then, Joanna from has generously offered one participate a 25 dollar gift certificate to go towards perfume, makeup, toothpaste, or any of amazing spa quality products she sells. Not only are these products high quality using organic ingredients but they also are free from the preservatives and chemicals so bad for us and the environment. What an excellent way to try out one or more of these great products.
Thanks to everyone who offered these great giveaways (and as always click throughs to our sponsors give me a small commission, so if you want to support this blog, support my sponsors!).
I hope to see all of you on Monday!

How Cool! Very excited to participate! Thanks for the giveaways!
my husband and i agreed to do this challenge together! i have a disability that keeps me from preparing and cooking so my job is to research what to eat and how to prepare it and my sweet husband follows orders. he was just saying we need to reorganize-esp. since we’re currently on gaps intro, now we will be accountable to actually do it.
thanks for your blog and giveaways!
Sounds like a wonderful opportunity to get to try some great products!
What great items you’re giving away!
Soli @ I Believe in Butter
If my semester were not slated to go into high gear during March I would so take part in this! Much luck everyone. 🙂
Wow– how nice!
I am so excited about this, I need to do some cleaning/purging and I can’t wait to get started!
Some nice giveaways! And my kitchen could use some reorganizing!
I’m nervous about all this…especially since there was something growling at me from the back of my pantry earlier today! 🙂
Thanks for motivating me!
Sounds great, I just cleaned out a closet this morning- and totally exhausted myself being 4 1/2 months pregnany:-) – decided I need to keep going but not quite at that pace!
Will join you for sure!
What great giveaways! I was just telling my husband how I wanted to clean and reorganize the entire house. The kitchen would be good place to start for me.
YAY!! Im ready to do this! My freezer and fridge are scary but I can do it!! lol….*still scared*
Great! I’m looking forward to your suggestions – ready for spring cleaning in my kitchen.
I hate cleaning…but this year, I am actually finding myself eager for spring cleaning, in part, because my house really needs it. Guess I’m just really ready for spring, too.
It will be fun and different to have a community of folks doing the same things at the same time, and the giveaways are fantastic!
jana @ Weekend Vintage
Looking forward to it!
Planning to join in with you all! My thawing meat leaked juices all down into the fridge crevices the other day…so my work is awaiting.
This looks like a lot of fun, and in my house it’s much needed! Seems that with growing children there is always something to declutter, clean out, or clean up after 🙂
What a great idea, Kimi! We’ll look forward to joining you in your kitchen tidying. And thanks for hosting the giveaways!
thanks so much, Kimi. We’ve had along winter at home and I am so ready for the cleaning and organizing that comes with Spring!
Kimi – so glad to find your blog – we’re busy eating down the harvest in our freezers and I do need to get a grip on what’s left…seems I keep coming out with beans, cauliflower or corn….where are the broccoli, sweet-sour cabbage and peas hiding??? All the fruits are scattered so it’s time to GET IT ON! Thanks for the challenge! The great giveaways are like icing on the cake!
I can’t wait to get started. My kitchen is very unorganized. These give a ways are amazing.
Love this blog and all the wonderful giveaways they generously offer.
I have been thinking I need to start the spring cleaning:) Good luck to
everyone and keep using those earth/health friendly products. You won’t
great give-aways. would love to try them all. Excited to get started on spring cleaning, maybe then spring will come.
I would love to win something – such a fun idea!
I hope I win. I really need the kefir grains.
That may even make me want to clean!
Oh my, what inspiration abounds! A lovely giveaway indeed. Certain to have one SPRING into action. Thanks for putting it together.
Kimi, I’ll join you on this spring cleaning frenzy. My kitchen will appreciate that!
Count me in! Thanks for the “bump”. This is just what my girls and I need to help us get started on some much-needed Spring cleaning. Can’t wait to read Monday’s post. ;D
Wow, spring cleaning, here I come!!
okay okay i’ll do it. although i have to confess that i have 2 dead hamsters in one of my (3) freezers. it’s a long story. the funeral is in the spring.
I had 2 baby goats that died at birth in mine for a whole year. They are now on top of a tall woodpile waiting for my hubby to get rid of them. Pretty gross, huh?
I’m not living in my own place right now, so won’t be able to follow the whole cleaning challenge, but I do have the use of a fridge that has been designated to me and could use some cleaning! And I always enjoy the chance to win something. :o)
I hate cleaning out the fridge, but if I have a chance to win a prize, it should be almost fun!
I straightened my chest freezer a few weeks ago, and the top shelves of the refrigerator. Then I stopped. Maybe this will encourage me to finish!
i would love to win, great items….
just cleaned my fridge, so there would be place fore more
I’m on board with Kitchen Clean Up and Organize time in March. These giveaways sound great. I’d be happy to win any of them. Thanks for hosting :o)
Hooray for kitchen cleaning and organizing – there’s been lots of that in our house as well. Thanks for the amazing chance at giveaways.

Looking forward to this!
Just what I need to get myself in gear! My kitchen needs some decluttering and organization in a bad way. My clean-freak husband will be so happy!
I need this so bad! I cannot wait to get started! 🙂
My kitchen could use a deep cleaning, especially my refrigerator. Looking forward to starting this project.
I have been wanting to make a list for spring cleaning. This will help in the kitchen. Then off to the bedrooms, bathrooms, office…. Okay, I just need to focus on the Kitchen now!
I just found this site today, and think this plan is amazing! My kitchen could sure use a cleaning such as this.
Got my linen closet cleaned out, organized and labeled this week — whoot! All that’s left is the pots/pans cupboard. It feels so good.
i am moving soon and this will be a great jumpstart
Nice. This oughta be fun.
Thanks for the challenge. I am beginning spring cleaning this week, and the kitchen is a great place to start. I also appreciate the giveaways as incentives.
Looking forward to it!
Just the kick in the pants I needed. I’m in!
