A Clean Kitchen in the Morning = Happiness!

This morning I came downstairs and walked into our kitchen which looked like a mess. We chose not to finish washing the dishes last night before going to bed. We also decided not to put away the jar of pickles, popcorn maker or water jug on our counter (to only name a few). Do you ever have evenings like this? As you can see, we do.


Start your day off right

On mornings like this, it’s not fun to have to start your day cleaning up. I prefer to come downstairs to a clean and tidy kitchen. A kitchen that has nothing cluttering up the counters or sink. So this morning I spent the first 20 or so minutes washing up dirty dishes and putting things back where they belong. My daughter was my little helper so that made it all the more enjoyable.

My little helper

When I think about what makes me happy, after the important people in my life, it comes down to my surroundings. I love a clean and tidy home. I love the feeling of looking around a room that has everything put in its spot. I appreciate a calm environment that is free from distractions and that is one simple thing that makes me happy.

Set the tone

It’s often the little things in life, the simplest tasks that yield big results. Taking the time to clean up your kitchen after dinner or before going to bed is so worth it. Being able to start your day fresh can set a positive tone for the rest of your day.

Before and After

I love to see transformation pictures of any kind. So here’s the before and after shots from my kitchen this morning. Enjoy!

Do you appreciate waking up to a clean and tidy kitchen? What evening routines do you have in place to make sure you start your day off on a positive note?
