Hot Spot Fire Drill in the Kitchen

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Good morning to you! I pray your week is going well. Sometimes things are tough, and I wanted you to know that no matter how little progress you think you are making, it is better than nothing at all.
Today you are going to do a quick Hot Spot Fire Drill in the Kitchen. Use your timer and really go after those clutter spots on your counters. Toss. Toss. Toss. Find a place for things that you do need to keep.
Take a look at the appliances on your counters. Do you have some that are not used very often? The only thing that I do not use often that has a space on my counter is my Kitchenaid. It is too big and heavy to move. Otherwise, I only keep the appliances we use regularly.
We have designated storage places for the pots and pans. I have a rolling cabinet that holds my cast iron. The lighter pots and pans stack easily in my lower cabinet.
If you have appliances that someone gave you, and you are not using them, you can bless someone else with them. You are not obligated to keep something that is just taking up space and not useful to you.
When we got married, we were gifted with many kitchen items. Over the years, I found that some of them were quite useful, and some of them were not as useful. When I did my kitchen renovation last year, I found things in the top of my kitchen cabinet that had sat there for 28 years. I donated these items.
The less stuff you have on your counters, the better your kitchen will function for you. Purge without guilt.
It’s also anti-procrastination day! Do something you have been putting off.
Your Zone Mission today is to do a hot spot fire drill in the kitchen.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is soup, sandwiches, and a salad.
Have a blessed day!
