It started with the spices in the spice cupboard. Spice cupboard
And it has stayed this way (mostly) for over a month. I love - absolutely love - finding something that works for me. I have found so many things that don't.
Next was the cooking pots. Cooking pots and pans And this too has worked well, with a bit of straightening by me every once in awhile.
Last week I worked on the containers and mixing bowls. Containers and large bowls.
And today I cleaned out one of the few cupboards left. This is where we keep the appliances. Ugh, it was a grimy mess. I was amazed to find it took me less than a half hour.
The areas I still have yet to do are: the pantry, above the stove and fridge and the drawers, except for one.
This has taken me over a month to do, but this is a deeper clean. I just do it when I have a few extra minutes. I try to do projects as I go to make it better, but only if, the materials are on hand or inexpensive.
It's been fun to make a small kitchen work for our big family and find ways to say as Paul did,
"I am content with little and with much." And as the author to the Hebrews commands "Be content with such things as you have, for He Himself has said I will never leave you or forsake you."
Making the most of today,
