Simone and I had some time to focus on the kitchen. Husband Ron was away for the day and we had the house to ourselves. We started at one end, first straightening a small bookshelf holding a phone, cookbooks and other items. We next worked on cupboards. Starting at the top of each, we placed items that aren’t used very often on the top shelves. We reserved the “most valuable real estate” (the lowest shelves) for things used most – measuring cups, plates, etc.
Our time together used up, she looked around, smiled and said that she was pleased with her “new” kitchen. Success!
