kitchen zone — the fridge

1. Miscellaneous condiments
2. Water bottles
3. Yogurt
4. Fruit cups
5. Fruit and veggies ready to eat (washed and chopped)
6. Meats and Cheeses
7. Juices
8. Veggies….salad, zucchini, squash, etc.
9. Fruit

 I like using these baskets for easy access to fridge items rather than having to pull items one by one.

I found the basket idea here and here is a great fridge organization and safety tip.

zone cleaning — kitchen

Everyday I clean 20 – 60 minutes on my current zone.  I keep it simple and easy to conquer otherwise I won’t do it and will wait until I can’t take it any more.  This system has worked wonders for my home.

Monday:  Clean out cupboards, organize and wipe down inside shelves.
Tuesday:  Clean cupboard doors and wipe down kitchen walls.
Wednesday:  Clean and organize the fridge/freezer.
Thursday:  Wipe down appliances and put away anything on the counter that I do not use weekly.
Friday:   Deep clean dining room, wipe down furniture and walls.
Saturday:  Decorate

I try to reward myself a little when I work on my zones……good music, a fun drink, and maybe I will throw in a snack after I am finished.

If I do not get to these each day I just move to the next job on the following day.  This zone will come around every six weeks (I have my schedule set up for six zones).  I really like to keep this simple with no guilt.  

Other zones:
Entryway and closets
Kitchen and dining room
Bathroom and laundry
Bedrooms
Living room and home office
Garage and automobiles
