If you know me, you know I am NOT organized. And my kitchen? I got it free with the house. . .that doesn't mean I have to use it! The best tip, therefore, that I can come up with is for organizing the front of your refrigerator. No, don't leave yet!
You know those really cute family picture Christmas cards that you get? They cover the side of my fridge that you see when you walk in my kitchen. It's also the side next to the stove, so when I'm cooking or coming/going, I see these people whom we love and I pray for them. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I see these people and I pray for them. It works for me.
On the front of my fridge is a little container I got at Wal-Mart that holds all the mail. All mail goes directly into this container that has a very strong maget attached to the back. (It doesn't matter how hard my son slams the fridge door, that sucker is not coming off!) It has multiple compartments, so my husband (who pays most of the bills) keeps his calculator, stamps, envelopes, etc., in it, also. This works for us, because no little (or big) hands can lose the mail once it makes it into the container.
I look forward to reading everyone else's idea, and if you want to read more, check out this blog.
Who knows, someone might convert me to the organized side of life. . .and if this is your first time here, welcome and feel free to look around awhile.
It was juuuuuust right!
