Hello from beautiful Montana:

A friend on Facebook suggested that since I always brag about beautiful Montana, I should include some photos!  If I knew how, I would.  My 15 year old grandson is visiting, maybe he can show me.

Today’s tip concerns organizing your kitchen in a new house or apartment.

Because we were an Air Force family and moved frequently, I found that where ever the movers put things was usually where they stayed until it was time to move again.  I finally devised a method of “pretending” to fix a meal in order to establish the most efficient and labor saving methods of organizing the kitchen.

If you have been living in your home for some time, you may need to re-evaluate whether your cupboards are organized based on logical planning or habit.

Why is it that some of the things we need most often are buried in that cupboard from hell?  (Hey, we all have at least one cupboard that seems to be totally dark and goes back forever so things get lost and forgotten!)

Maybe you need to “pretend” you are just moving in and where do you want things to be so you can fix meals, clean up easily, store staples and then get on to the important things of life.  Spending time with your family and friends.

I would like to invite you again to join our weekly free teleclass every Thursday on some aspect of family relationships.  You can register at http://www.ArtichokePress.com  You will be glad you did and so will we.

Till next time,

With love and gratitude that you are part of my community,
