Every few months I like to take sections of my house and purge, reorganize and redefine them. I also use this time to do a deep cleanse.
Here is the kitchen cleanse
I like to keep the items that I use the least but enjoy looking at at the top
We live in a hard water area so I give all my glassware a rinse in a white vinegar solution
Because we have monkeys who graze on food- I have an abundance of 'little dishes'.
Easy to cut up an apple or toss a handful of almonds into.
Dr. J is a saucier so we also use them for condiments.
Tupperware without a lid drives me nutz.
I love coffee and tea and am particular about which cups I use for what.
We call this the sharp things drawer- if it can cut you it goes in here
Metal drawer and Wood drawer
Cutlery- again I gave it a rinse with vinegar
My 'junk' drawer is a mini office in the kitchen- easy for homework supplies.
When the kids bring home papers I recycle them by cutting them into fours
and making a note paper pile that is easily accessible.
In my plastic drawer I have one carton that holds all the ziploc bags that are washed and ready to reuse
I am much happier when everything is in order- keep in mind I do this every few months and that I would never imagine posting the before photos.
