I'm back home from spending five days with Lauren and Robert and their gorgeous new baby. (Check out the post below to see some darling pics!) A care calendar is starting up and friends are lining up to bring meals for the next few weeks, so they will be well taken care of in the food department.
As I worked in my daughter's kitchen, I noticed that she has a nicely organized cupboard for storage containers. Bowls and lids - that match - are stacked and easily available. This is going to come in really handy when leftovers start piling up from the generous meals they'll receive.
Today's Small Thing is to straighten up your storage containers.
Are they all thrown in disarray in a drawer or cabinet? Do you have a bunch of lids waiting to be matched with their container, only to realize that no container will ever come to them? Put them out of their misery by tossing those lidless containers and containerless lids out, and making room for the pairs that actually work. I've got a whole bin full of singles taking up precious space that I can get rid of today.
If this job scares you because it seems too big, set a timer and give yourself 10-15 minutes MAX and then stop.
And hey, do some showing off! Post "Before and After" pictures on your blog, drag a family member over to see your handiwork, tell a friend what you did, or leave a comment! Enjoy the rush of container excitement when you see how organized you are!
This is a job that makes you feel incredibly organized and powerful, you'll see!
