1/15/23. Tiny tip-Don’t use valuable real estate as storage.

I teach teenagers for a living. If you live with a teenager, you know what I am about to say-their bedrooms are disaster zones. (Unless you are super strict and require it to be clean all the time.) I think the problem is that they are trying to cram too much stuff into a small space. I think that is what we sometimes do with our houses as well.

For example, my husband and I received a blender for our wedding. It is great and we use it a few times a year (I just made Cauliflower soup with it this week.) However, we do NOT need to store it in our kitchen-it takes up valuable space 98 percent of the time-space we just don’t have. Same with Crockpots and fancy dishes and platters and bread makers and muffin tins and… The list goes on and on! So, this Christmas break (we got snowed in for 3 days), I decided to move EVERYTHING we don’t use daily to the basement. It has made a world of difference in my kitchen. It goes back to the saying, “a place for everything and everything in its place.”

I have room in my cupboards. I have room in my drawers. It is a tiny little change that has made a big difference in my kitchen. Now when I tidy up the kitchen, I don’t have to shove things into places and hope the doors close. (I took out unused Tupperware and glasses a few weeks ago)

This tiny action has reaped big rewards. When I need my blender or crockpot, I will walk downstairs to the basement and get them. They just don’t need to be stored in the kitchen.

To my 99 followers-THANK YOU! What tiny organization tips do you use to keep your house in order? Have a great week!
