Cleaning your kitchen as you normally do is the best place to start this project.

 Do the dishes.

 Clear the counters and sink.

 Load and start the dishwasher if you have one.

 Hand wash anything that won’t fit.

Basically, go to bed with a clean kitchen. You know, implement our habit for the month. You’ll never regret waking up to a clean kitchen!

Tomorrow morning (or later today if you have time), unload the dishwasher so you can refill it as you go.

Make it a habit to clean your kitchen every night and unload the dishwasher/dish rack each morning. If you continue to clean your kitchen every night, it should only take a few minutes each night.

It’s going to be a productive and fun month getting your kitchen in top-notch order!

Your assignment for today:

 Set your timer. Clean your kitchen and get prepared for the month!

 Get ready to work on a Habit #2.

 Keep working your Rainbow calendar.
