Who has paper clutter on their kitchen counter?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
We are moving along in the zone missions in the kitchen this week. Today’s mission is to declutter items from the tops of your kitchen counters and wipe them down.
As you are doing this, please consider carefully what you put back on your counters. Do you use the small appliances you have out on the counters? We use the small appliances that I keep out on the counters daily, except for the Kitchenaid mixer. It’s too heavy to move.
If your counter or island is a dumping ground for paper, spend 5 to 10 minutes shredding paper and tossing it. You likely do not need all of the paper you have stacked on your counters. This is a hot spot that you should deal with daily for 2 to 5 minutes.
Thursday is errand day on the FlyLady weekly plan. Have you done your errands this week? I do mine on Friday or Saturday, but I do spend time on Thursday working on my list for errand day. So if you are not doing errands today, you can work on your list for a few minutes.
We are coming up on Easter in a few weeks. It’s time to check your children’s clothing and see if you need to pick anything up. My boys have been growing, and they are needing bigger sizes. It’s funny how a pair of shoes fits one week and are too small the next week.
Enjoy your day! I am loving our spring weather!
Your Zone Mission today is declutter items from the tops of your counters and wipe down.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and salad.
Have a blessed day!
