Say, are you DOING the Small Things along with me? I hope so! They are so easy....and if you just take a few minutes a day to tackle the simple tasks, you'll have your home feeling like your sanctuary in no time!
There's been a proliferation of bottles and jars in the refrigerator's condiment community lately. I've noticed that finding things in the refrigerator has become much more difficult than it used to be....what with all the fancy dijons refusing to hang out with the blue collar ketchups. It's a regular melting pot of society in there: the smooth mayonnaise, the dill slices, the high-brow poppy seed dressing and the Nascar loving barbeque sauce. They used to all live in the neighborhood of the door shelves, but they've spilled into every compartment and drawer imagineable due to their different tastes and cultures. The parmesan cheese won't even speak to the grape jam anymore.
Today's Small Thing is to straighten up the condiment community in your fridge.
Those guys tend to be unruly - all those spicy personalities - but I find that if you just put them all together in one area, they'll remember put aside their differences and work together. Some of them are a bit messy and rough around the edges, but a quick swipe of a cloth is usually enough to remind them to be on their best behavior.
Can't they all just get along? Yes, they can.
Foster a community spirit by organizing the condiments in your fridge.
Take it a step further by organizing the condiments in your cabinets.
