It’s Gardening Season and during this time my kitchen can take a beating. I am constantly in and out of it as the Kitchen is the ‘Heart of the Home’.
Yesterday I wrote about my ‘3 Day/3 Week/3 Load Limit’. This is a way to help me when life gets in the way. After 3 Days of not doing all of the 9 habits, it is then time to stop everything and focus on doing a 45 minute ‘Kitchen Cha Cha Cha’ 15 minutes at a time. The following is my starting point and will show you my 15 minutes at a time progress.
This is a tutorial for educational purpose only. I write about doing things in real time and have learned to be realistic by practicing this method.
My starting point. I start at my Launch Pad working clockwise and top to bottom. I start with the first Cha. It is throwing away everything that has no value. The next Cha is to put away the items that have a home and to group the like items together. The last Cha is give away in which this session I don’t have anything.
Here is the other angle.
After 15 minutes of Kitchen Cha Cha Cha! Above I explained how I did it.
This is after 30 minutes. You see I am making progress.
After 30 minutes I was getting tired. I had put 3 days of hard work into gardening earlier and am not at the top of my game. I move forward with a promise of a 30 minute break that includes lunch.
After 45 minutes the kitchen is in working order again. I added photos of some of the things I did during this time.
This is my ‘Dance Card’ or Control Journal. Some days I get lots filled in and some days not. Most of it is by memory now.
This is my PTL Gardening Book. I have it by zones to help me stay on top of taking care of gardens and the yard.
Part of what was in my kitchen were seeds I still want to plant. I decided to corral them and place in this container I can take back and forth as I continue to plant. These are ‘Moonflowers’ that have been soaking overnight for easier germination.
I shined my stove top. I shined my sink!
I even shined my mirror!
I shined my coffee pot, (not shown) and my microwave.
This is my blogging PTL book. I am learning so many new things I have to keep track of.
And here is what is left from the paper clutter scattered around the kitchen earlier. I plan to spend at least 30 minutes on that today.
I have my 9 habits made up as a photo of my ‘Bleeding Heart’ plant. It you would like a copy I will have my Etsy Shop set up soon and you will be able to purchase them. It is a nice guide that will go with any decor. The power of 3.
You can see I have some of my favorite things on my refrigerator. You will notice I also have a copy of ‘What To De-Clutter?’ guide. I am thinking of taking a photo of my flowers and make it into a photo and have them available for sale.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial of a ‘Kitchen Cha Cha Cha!’ part of the Marilyn’s Way Dance Till You FLY! System.
Any thoughts or questions? Feel free to comment. I am a real person that did this tutorial in real time and I would LOVE to hear from you!
I also have a secret group called Marilyn’s Way where a group of us support each other while learning the 9’s. If you are interested in joining, send me a friend request at http://www.facebook.com/marilynkayfoster and I will be happy to add you to the group! If you can send me a quick message that you would like to join the group. It is ‘Secret’ and that means it is by invitation only and does not show up in the search for groups.
