Working one cupboard at a time, I first took everything out, and then I ruthlessly purged – who needs all those extra casserole dishes when I rarely use one? Extra coffee mugs? Gone. Extra dishes? Gone. Mismatched tupperware? Gone. Seriously, I was ruthless. SO, I got to the point where I had much less to put back in those cabinets, which felt great.
Then I simply reorganized the cupboards putting less frequently used items in a less convenient location. And running every.single.dish through our new dishwasher. And cleaning all those cupboards while I was at it. And the ceiling fan. And the stovetop – which also needed to have it’s drip pans replaced. All that is done.
And I am taking today off.
