When we had our kitchen fitted in October, back at the beginning of our KonMari challenge, we decided to go through our kitchen items as we put them back. Anything we didn't use, was discarded.

So here we are, four months later. We have only added two pieces of kitchen equipment since then - a breadmaker, which is used every other day, as and when we run out of bread, and a toasted sandwich maker, which we haven't used yet.

We have lost a bowl and chipped two others. A chipped bowl doesn't bring me joy, but would leave us with only four bowls. Since my diet has consisted of mostly cereal during this pregnancy, that seemed like a terrible idea, so instead we have continued to use it until we find new bowls that fit in with our current, joy sparking set. They don't have to match perfectly, but the shape should at least be similar.

Instead of using this week as an opportunity to declutter further, we wanted to make sure the cupboards are tidy instead. With a toddler supporting us to put away crockery, this can prove a little difficult to maintain.

Here are some pictures of our kitchen cupboards and their contents:

Are you taking part in the KonMari process? How did you find sorting through your kitchen supplies? Did you find you had more or less than you thought? Do your kitchen cupboards now spark joy or have you set out to buy all new dishes? How have you found going through shared categories?
