homemade missions Day #17

Yay for chalkboard contact paper labels!
Taking a little detour today, getting down to the nitty gritty... organization... I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it.

Ok, so I love organization the first day when it looks all pretty, and then I hate keeping up with it.

My mom sent me chalkboard contact paper and a chalk marker this week!  Hooray!  It has me in an organizing frenzy.  This is when I LOVE organizing!  

But when your ministry is hospitality, you've got to be a bit organized.  And, bottom-line,  if it's pretty I will keep it nicer for longer.  An organized kitchen will make prep faster, it will allow guests to help themselves more easily, and you will get better help in the kitchen when people know where things are!  That's a win in my book. 
My baking station- everything within reach!

I am not an organizing expert.  But here is what's working for me this week.
  • Keep like items together.
  • Store items where you use them most.
  • Make it pretty and you will keep it pretty longer.
What works for you?  How do you keep things organized and sane for hostessing?
