Kitchen Clutter

From expired food in pantries and the fridge to cluttered tables and counters, The DeClutter Coach Deb Cabral is here to tell us how we can take control of kitchen clutter.

Make the Kitchen The Family Hub Calendar with important dates

Set up Zones

-Launch Zone  a place for backpacks, keys, jackets, etc.

-Lunch Zone  keep all of the items for your kids lunches in shelf on fridge

-Snack Zone  create a snack zone with accessible snacks kids can get themselves

The Cabinets and Pantry  get rid of plastic containers you do not use and toss expired foods.  If there are unexpired foods you do not use donate them to a food bank.

Tables and Countertops  Refrain from keeping lots of paper clutter or extra small appliances rarely used out on display.  You want to be able to have extra space to cook and enjoy meals.

That Junk Drawer  Organize your junk in compartments, keeping pens together, coupons, small tools, etc.

The FRIDGE

Sue Grafton

It started with “A is for Alibi” in 1982. The “B, C, D” before she knew it Sue Grafton had  a mere 23 Best sellers. Dozens of Awards for her Alphabet series featuring the character of Kensey Milhone. Now she has her 24th book “X.”

Of the title, Sue says to USA Today, "I first thought of using 'X is for Xenophobe' or Xenophobia, which suggests a fear of foreigners, but alas, not one single foreigner materialized in the course of the writing," Grafton says. "There's a box of files with an X on the lid, a Father Xavier, a married couple whose last name is Xanakis, and a missing painting of a xebec which is a three-masted sailing vessel, but none of these seemed to encompass the whole. Finally, it occurred to me that since I was the one who invented this 'rule's … I was surely entitled to break it."

Sue Grafton will be at the Poison Pen to discuss her book “X.”
