What’s under your kitchen sink?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
What is under your kitchen sink? I can tell you what is under mine.
When we did our kitchen renovation a few years ago, I started putting my dish drainer under the sink when I was not using it. I also keep dishwasher liquid and trash bags under the sink. There is not a lot of room under there with the dish drainer sitting in its place 99.9% of the time.
That’s right, I learned to get along without a dish drainer. The only times I have pulled it out to use has been when I used my china and glassware that does not go in my dishwasher. This has me thinking that maybe I don’t need it at all.
Tell me what’s under your kitchen sink, and I would also like to know how many of you use your dish drainer. I can remember the years of sippy cups and bottles. That is why I had the dish drainer on the counter, but it was always full of the kids’ cups.
Now that my kids are older, it was easy to put the dish drainer away and forget about it. I enjoy the extra space on my counter, and I love that my counters look less cluttered without it.
Do any of you hand-wash dishes on a regular basis? If so, you likely use your dish drainer regularly. Do you put the dishes away or use them from the drainer? When I used my drainer for the kids’ cups, I never put them away. They were always there.
What are some other things that sit on your counter but are rarely used?
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter under the kitchen sink.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and salad.
Have a blessed day!
