The other thing that I have been trying to do (and here's your CHALLENGE!) is to prep everything that I can for dinner before I clean up breakfast! Take out meat to thaw, wash and cut veggies, set the rice cooker, make any sauces that can be easily heated up later, start the crock pot, etc. Then, I clean it up all at once! This has enabled me to have a cleaner kitchen at the end of the day and given me one on one time with my kids to help them with homework after school, or whatever else. So, I challenge you to try it by the end of the week and let me know how it goes :)
One last thing, I have also been asked to be a guest blogger on gigglesnlaundry.com later in the month, so stay posted for the link!
And just as a follow up, here's my kitchen as dinner cooks. All tidy already :)
