I'm linking up at Velvet Ashes today, on the topic of hospitality. I chose this post from our 31 Days of Homemade Missions because I am really missing my kitchen in Uganda. We fly back to Uganda on July 17- I am looking forward to getting settled into our home there and start opening our doors to guests again! There are so many great posts in that series, please check it out if you're new here!

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.

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.
