3  Tidy up as you go.

 

That kitchen sink will be filled by the end of both cooking and eating your dinner if you don’t. Squeeze in some Cinderella cleaning time while your pasta is boiling, while your chicken is baking, or while your stew is simmering. A clean kitchen will create a relaxed and happy work space.

 

 

4  Minimize food waste.

 

Chopping up veggies for a quick roast? Those trimmings can make a tasty broth in the future! Learn how to make use of every part of your meat cuts and vegetables.

5  Fix your groceries immediately.

 

Unwrap all those veggies, wash your berries and leafy greens, keep your dairy products in the chiller, and store your meat in the freezer upon returning home from a shopping trip. This way, you can organize your groceries for the rest of the week and get rid of any unwanted packaging trash immediately.
