YES! Congrats! 5 Days complete and I’m feeling groovy! 🙂 How about you?
Yesterdays task was to take an inventory of all your household cleaners. I had a list of 33. How many did you have? Less or more than my 33?
There’s a method to my madness you know. When you rid the clutter there’s always the clean-up right? So….now you know where and what your cleaning products are. LOL, pretty smart of me, eh?
Today, Day 6, it’s time to clutter free the kitchen. Grab the hefty bags. Here’s what you want to do. Divide the kitchen into sections and if you can’t get to all the sections today, that’s okay. You’ll have Day 7 as well – no tasks that day, just a tip or two.
Back to the kitchen. Break it down into sections such as cupboards, drawers, pantry. Decide what’s easiest for you. Think about the following:
- Canned food – toss old expiration dates. Take a look at the remaining and really ask yourself are you going to use it because if you’re not sure maybe think about donating to the food bank. Everyone may not be as lucky as you.
- Utensils, dishes, glasses, fry pans, etc. – I have 2 crockpots, 5 pie plates, and 6 water bottles. Ummmm, I don’t think I really need all that.
- Pantry – food – again, toss the old, especially the stale cereal!
- And what about the tupperware? Too much? Mine has somehow grown like bunny rabbits and I never use or need all of it. What about the lid that hubby threw in the dishwasher and now it’s warped and doesn’t snap on that well. I’m keeping it why??? TOSS!!!
Are ya getting my drift? Garbage, Donate and Sell should be the three categories that start filling up after a trip through the kitchen. Then take them there cleaners and make it shine!
Have fun! TTYL,
