My Quick Dishwasher Tip
Have I mentioned before that I work full time? I have? Oh, OK.
Well, my full-time job is in accounting. And this week is our fiscal year end. And anyone that knows anything about working in accounting knows what that means. It means my life is a bit on the crazy side right now. I’m dealing with deadlines and decisions and massive amounts of data entry. I have numbers coming out of my ears. When I get home my brain is about as fried as the rice that Susie made me make last night. (which was Amazing, by the way!)
Anywho…Since I’m a little strapped for time (and mental functionality) I’m going to share with you something that I recently discovered. I honestly don’t know where I read this. So if I’m stealing this from someone I’m sorry, let me know and I’ll give you some credit. This little bit of a tip has changed my world. Literally.
It’s how I load my dishwasher.
Now, I know I’m working my way into some sensitive territory for people. Telling some people how to load their dishwasher is like telling them how to fold their undies. It’s personal. But trust me, this is awesome! And it’s so simple!
Load you dishes in groups. Done. That’s it. Put your forks with your forks. Your spoons with your spoons. Your kiddie silverware with your kiddie silverware….I’m pretty sure you’re getting the picture. They come out clean, and all I have to do is grab the bunch and throw them in the drawer.
Now for the top…
Line up your cups. Put your measuring spoons together, Keep the lids with the containers.I know that this is far from rocket science. But the amount of time this has saved putting away my dishes has been minutes…OK, so that doesn’t sound like much. But, when you’re staring at your kitchen debating whether or not you should skip the kitchen and grab the ice cream, those couple of minutes help…A Lot.
