Where do these kitchens exist?

Okay, so I have acquired a new habit of reading through some blog posts each morning. A few of them are always organizing something. I glance through Pinterest and there are homemade cleaners and cleaning checklists galore. I usually skip them on account of “not enough time in the day”, but since yesterday was day one of “Operation Get My House Under Control”, I thought I would give a couple of these posts attention. Well, okay….you are either Martha Stewart crazy or your pants are on fire! Here’s my evidence:

First, they show these large immaculate kitchens (not on a planet with small children) with NOTHING held to the fridge with a magnet (also not happening with children).

Plus, who has a kitchen that big? (Apparently people who don’t quit their jobs)

Second, they decorate in lots of WHITE (not on a planet with boys).

Also, everything, even the zip-locks and cereals, are labeled. There are containers to hold the containers that hold the food, cleaners, or office supplies. Don’t get me started on the kitchen with room for vitamins, medications, and office supplies. I know those exist only in my dreams.

Whatever. I need the quick and dirty version. Okay. Quick, and not so dirty.

As I work along in the next month of Operation Get My House Under Control, I’ll let you know what I honestly think is worth the time and what’s not. Hopefully by the 4th of July everything will have a place and come out smelling like roses. Lets just say I have an excellent place to start.

  1. HA! These kitchens only exist on Pinterest and Houzz.com!! šŸ˜€ Cleaning house with kids around is like shoveling snow during a blizzard. Getting the kids on board helps tremendously, of course. You already know that. šŸ™‚ And personally, I prefer a house that has kid pictures on the fridge and stray toys out and about. It says that house is lived in, there is a lot of love, and I shouldn’t be afraid to breathe there for fear of leaving a smudge or something, haha!!
