I recently posted this picture of my kitchen island counter on Facebook stating that this was one of my goals to tackle during March Break. My counter had become a catch-all and dumping zone for everything from grocery flyers, empty containers, school work and toys.
I did not know what a reaction this picture would have! Some were amazed that so much stuff could occupy such a small area. My organized friends couldn’t wait to see the after and cheered me on. Another group of friends were so thankful that their home felt normal after seeing this picture. Each commented that they have a spot in their house that looks just like this.
I must admit, I don’t enjoy my counter looking this way, but life has been hectic lately with 3 kids in hockey and teaching full time. I felt a great sense of accomplishment when I got that counter cleared and organized. The blue bin felt the brunt of this clean-up and I want to set a goal to sort things more regularly and NOT let it get this bad again. We’ll see how that one goes…
