So Far So Good: Day 4 One Plate Challenge

photo (1)I took on the One Plate Challenge four days ago and I am still going strong. It has made a huge difference in the amount of dishes coming into the kitchen. I must admit that I was blaming my husband for the overabundance of dishes but I am partly majorly  to blame. I have a terrible habit of leaving dishes all over the house.

During this challenge I now find myself searching for my green bowl and my blue plate. It made me aware of how lazy I have been about taking care of my own dishes. I have a place  right next to the sink where I am putting my one plate, bowl, cup, and utensils. It is working out nicely, so far so good.

How are you doing with the One Plate Challenge?

 

UPDATE: I stink!! I only made it one week before time got the best of me and I was rushing to eat breakfast or hurrying to grab a lunch and I started grabbing plates and utensils from the cabinet. It is a great challenge and I will try it again sometime soon. Please let me know if you take on this challenge and if you are successful.

The One Plate Challenge

As I was tackling the mound of dishes in our kitchen I started to think about how much time I spend on my day off trying to keep up with cleaning the kitchen. I sometimes do three loads of dishes and still have some left. I know I really shouldn’t complain because we have a dishwasher but the volume of dishes is overwhelming. We have such little counter space that the piling becomes ridiculous. My husband has a habit of stacking plates on our flat top stove and I know one day something bad will happen. Avalanche or fire I am not interested in damage control.

Here I declare that I will use the same plate, the same bowl, the same drinking glass, the same tea-cup, and the same utensils for the next few weeks. Let’s see if I can tame the mountains of dishes in our kitchen.
