Manic Monday – Goodnight, Sink

I had a different idea in mind for Manic Monday today, but when I woke up to a sink (and counter, and table, and coffee table…) full of dirty dishes I decided to write about this.

Tell your kitchen sink “goodnight”. Take a few minutes before you go to bed to make sure the dishes are clean, put away, and your sink and counter are wiped down. You’d be amazed at how brighter your day starts with a tidy kitchen! (or the sink, anyway). And if you’re a non-morning person like me, anything that helps mornings go smoother, or help my mood in the morning be even a tad better is welcome!

I know life is crazy, and we’re all tired, and it’s not always possible to do a last minute dish round before bed. If you find yourself unable to do it every night, try to at least do it Sunday night. Starting off the work/school week off with a clean, tidy kitchen makes a big difference.

Lastly, you don’t have to do it all yourself! If your kids are old enough, get them in on the action, too! They can help load the dishwasher, scrape food into the bin or disposal, and help wipe down surfaces.

  1. Funny b/c we didn’t wash our dishes last night and as we walked into the kitchen this morning, Bailey goes “Looks like someone didn’t wash the dishes yesterday!” EXCUSE ME! It’s time for her to learn after making that comment! 🙂

    I think dishes are an excellent chore for the men in our life as well (until the kids are old enough to do it). 🙂 I’m happier to cook nice meals if I know someone else cleans up afterwards.

    So true and great advice. I so often leave a full sink of dirty dishes… esp. cause we don’t have a dishwasher. and I’m 39 weeks pregnant… lol
