5 Things to Organize at Night Every Day This Week - #SummerOrganizingGoals
From The Kitchn - July 17, 2017

My nights (like yours, probably) are jam-packedhome from work, cook dinner, get the kids to bed, and try to go to bed myself by 9:45 in order to get my full eight hours before the next day begins again. But nothing makes me sleep better than feeling like my home is clean and that I accomplished what I wanted to that daywhich might explain why I love to organize my kitchen before I go to bed.

No matter how brain-dead you are feeling (or how badly you want to hang out outside right up until bedtime!) this week, you should try organizing these things after dinner, and before you hit the sack.

Monday: Your Spices

In the midst of preparing your gourmet-ish meal, you have pulled out a half-dozen spices and oilsso what's left in that panty? Pull out whatever's in there that's just about done or you know you never useand if you are not sure how often you use them, take a minute now to write today's date on them with a Sharpie. If it takes more than six months to finish that spice, it's time to let go.

If you have three small saucepans but there's one you use time after time, donate the other two. You only have four burners (maybe five if you are fancy), right?
