10-Hours (or 10-Days) To A Spotless and Organized Kitchen

Written by Maria Marsala, Business and Life Coach

Sometimes it helps to organize a room all at once. However, for home-business owners, spending another entire day inrepparttar house isn't always a desirable thing. What may be more desirable is to spend 60-minutes each day working on a project. The steps below will assist you (as they have me) to reorganize your kitchen.

Day 1 ~~if you don't have a pad on your refrigerator, set aside a piece of paper somewhere inrepparttar 117732 kitchen forrepparttar 117733 next 10 days. Userepparttar 117734 top part ofrepparttar 117735 page for "things to buy" andrepparttar 117736 lower half for other notes. ~~put a chair inrepparttar 117737 middle ofrepparttar 117738 kitchen floor and assess what needs to be done. Make a list. ~~start to pay attention to where you are placing things that are inrepparttar 117739 dishwasher. Take a mental note of what items are in cabinets that would be better off somewhere else. ~~take your step ladder out, cleanrepparttar 117740 light fixtures and change any bulbs that aren't working.

Day 2 ~~Question: What does an empty box, a step ladder, a telephone book, a cloth, a car and one hour have in common? ~~Answer: They're what you'll need to cleanrepparttar 117741 pantry or if you don't have one, your food cupboards. Remove allitems you haven't used inrepparttar 117742 past year... or won't use inrepparttar 117743 next few months. Make sure everything is packed properly for storage. Then you can put unused/unwanted food inrepparttar 117744 box, contact your local non-profit food pantry, and putrepparttar 117745 box in your car (for now).

Day 3 ~~If you have a self-cleaning oven, turn it on when you wake up. If not, spray or cleanrepparttar 117746 inside ofrepparttar 117747 oven. Then later, rinse it off. ~~Defrostrepparttar 117748 refrigerator. It's good to put everything in coolers then clean when everything is defrosted. Even frost-free's need cleaning every now and then.

Day 4 ~~Putrepparttar 117749 stove burners, other stove and fan parts inrepparttar 117750 dishwasher. Cleanrepparttar 117751 top ofrepparttar 117752 range and fan. ~~Cleanrepparttar 117753 inside ofrepparttar 117754 dishwasher and outside of all appliances. Add jet dry torepparttar 117755 dishwasher.

Day 5 ~~By now you should have a nice list of items you may want to purchase... such as new shelving paper, food or containers, cleaning supplies, ect. So go out, buy yourself lunch, go shopping, and bringrepparttar 117756 box of donated food to your local food pantry. ~~If you don't have a shopping pad on your refrigerator, consider adding "small pad and magnetic strip" to your shopping list. Then when you get home, gluerepparttar 117757 magnet torepparttar 117758 back ofrepparttar 117759 pad. ~~Make your life easier inrepparttar 117760 kitchen. Purchase two inexpensive and dishwasher proof items - a bag of plastic clothes pins and a pair of scissors. Userepparttar 117761 clothes pins to close bags of chips, cereals, pasta, etc. Scissors that stay inrepparttar 117762 kitchen come in handy for many things.

Go Beyond The Headlines and Hype - Do Your Due Diligence!

Written by Gordon Bellows

Whether online or offline, we are constantly exposed to all sorts of headlines and hype that will try to grab our attention for one reason or another. It is important to go beyondrepparttar headlines andrepparttar 117731 hype, especially when it comes to business opportunities. The four examples below show that your first impression will often change oncerepparttar 117732 real story is known.

Example 1 - Angry Wife Uses Scissors on Naked Husband!

What do you think of when you see a headline like this? The real story is different thanrepparttar 117733 headline might lead you to believe. My wife is a medical professional, but she still likes to cut my hair at home. She cuts my hair as well as most barbers I have tried. One day, as I was preparing to get intorepparttar 117734 shower, she noticed thatrepparttar 117735 haircut fromrepparttar 117736 day before was not up to her usual high standards, which made her a little upset. She grabbed a pair of scissors to trim that one spot so that it would blend in withrepparttar 117737 rest. That's all there is torepparttar 117738 real story. This example clearly illustrates how a headline can be true, and yet very misleading. Headlines like this are a common tabloid tactic.

Example 2 - Only 50 Percent Chance For The Sun To Rise Tomorrow!

Would this headline get your attention? A few people might use twisted logic to tell you such a thing could be true. They say any event has a 50 percent chance of happening and a 50 percent chance of not happening. They might say it with such certainty that some people believe it without hesitation. The sun has been rising for at least thousands of years and any idea ofrepparttar 117739 sun not rising tomorrow is totally absurd. Some people might use twisted logic to influence you, so be careful about believing everything you read or hear before you check it out for yourself.

Example 3 - Any and All Credit Applications Are Accepted!

Would this statement from a radio ad get your attention? Suppose you wanted to buy a car and your credit rating wasn't too good. Would this ad make you think that your past credit problems won't matter? After all, a person with a friendly voice spokerepparttar 117740 words in this radio ad and they sounded so trustworthy. Some people may not realizerepparttar 117741 truth right away, butrepparttar 117742 radio ad said any and all credit applications would be accepted. Nothing was said aboutrepparttar 117743 chances ofrepparttar 117744 application being approved! The radio ad was truthful, but some people may understand something different than what was actually said.
