Jennie's Kitchen Tips: Clean the Kitchen at Night
I know this is not a new tip, but let me tell you about why this is one of my favorite tips.
Every morning that I wake up to a clean kitchen, I feel one step ahead of myself during the day. Usually, I just have to unload the dishwasher while I make breakfast and I can keep the kitchen in order all day long.
Every morning that I wake up to a dirty kitchen, it stays that way all day long. More and more stuff piles up...dishes, trash, clutter...it just acts like a magnet and collects more and more like items.
And let me tell you, when I finish eating dinner, I am pretty much done for the day and have no motivation to get off the couch and clean the kitchen. No matter how tidy I keep it until dinner time, things go downhill quickly when we are eating dinner.
But, I make it a point now to take 15 minutes, get the dishwasher going and wipe down the counters. Then, in the morning, I am one step ahead again.
Do you clean the kitchen at night? Is it a struggle?
