Clearing Counter Clutter
Well that's fairly catchy if I do say so myself. A bit of a tongue twister! As I tidied up from breakfast I came back into the kitchen and this is what I saw.
It's not horrendous I know but the area pictured is my only counter-top workspace in the kitchen aside from our island. I realized that not only were the counters unsightly and cluttered but a very large portion of space was being taken up. I immediately set out to organize and store away items in a still convenient location just not in plain sight. I was very pleased with my results.
So pleased in fact.... that I spent the remainder of my day sorting clearing and cleaning all the surfaces in the kitchen. I am happy to say I am down to a very small miscellaneous pile to be finished in the morning and I am left with very wonderful clutter free counter tops in the kitchen! As I head off to bed I do so with a huge sense of satisfaction because so much was accomplished today. Good night :)
