I would love to have kitchen fairies that did the everyday stuff. Rinsing, Stacking, Unstacking, Washing Up, Wiping and Putting Away are all tedious but necessary. Sometimes that's enough to do.
So when drawers and cupboards get messed up, it is easy to let them slide. And keep on sliding into chaos.
So my kitchen tweak, from the Big Tidy Up, was long overdue.
Biscuits and Glasses
Cakes and Pasta
On the Benchtop
Inevitably the Kitchen bench top becomes the most convienient place to accumulate papers, pencils, stationery, LEGO, plasticware - anything really. It is a clutter catch-all.
I set this area up earlier in the year but it has grown in size with clutter. It contains:
- Household folder
- local dining and attractions
- Suspended file for school, preschool, prekindy, and community
- Finance notebook
- 'to do' notebook
- Ordering notebook
- 2012 & 2013 Diary
- pens, pencils and highlighters
- post it notes
Tea and Coffee Cupboard
Under the Bench
Sorting the School Containers
These get used most frequently and can get into an awful mess.
That's NOT the entire kitchen...(Yikes!)
How are you doing with your weekly tasks?
