Put Your Extra Kitchen Stuff Away
Will you be baking batch after batch of cookies well into the New Year? What about serving appetizers on little trays? Pack up everything you don't need so your kitchen can return to making salads and soups and simple things like that. Get rid of the holiday-themed colors and get your kitchen decor back to normal. Overwhelmed with kitchen chaos? Here are 10 tips for organizing your kitchen.
Decorations And Tree
Some people like to wait until after New Year's Eve to remove their decorations and tree, and that's up to you. But get those boxes ready because the red and green is coming down soon.
Quick Sweep Of Guest Rooms
Before you start putting things back in storage in the guest rooms, or changing sheets and putting extra bedding away, do a quick sweep of all the nooks and crannies. You want to make sure your guests didn't leave anything behind that they'll look for a few weeks or months down the road.
Give Away Extra Sweets
Those resolutions are quickly approaching, so it's time to remove temptation. Send the cookies and cakes and brownies and candies off to school with your kids, leave them at your office, or put them in pretty packaging and hand them out to neighbors. You can also send them to the troops.
Add Final Return Dates To Calendar
Nobody wants to spend the time between Christmas and New Year's returning kids toys, clothes and other items to the stores. Make a note of the final return dates and put it on your calendar to take care of when things calm down. You can also add alarms or reminders in your phone to make sure you don't forget.
Organize Leftover Food
You probably have quite a bit of leftovers in that fridge of yours, so make a plan to use them all. If you can't eat them within the week, just freeze them for later. You'll appreciate that frozen Christmas ham when you're busy in a couple of weeks.
Make A Plan For January
A new year often means new goals, and the best way to keep up is to make a plan. Whether you need to revisit your workout strategy, update your weekly meal plans, take care of errands, or set new goals at work, it's always good to have a plan.
