One of the great things that summer brings back into our lives is a lazy Saturday morning. I for one relish a good, lazy weekend morning! With school out, after school activities come to an end, and early mornings on a soccer field are over……..for a few months at least. Some mornings we stay home in our pajamas ’til noon, and some we throw on whatever we can find that looks halfway decent and go out for breakfast or hit up the farmers market. Personally, it’s a jammies ’til noon type of Saturday that makes me most happy!
No matter what kind of morning it is though, my day starts right here.
More specifically this little corner of my kitchen where the Keurig machine lives. I’m not fully awake until I’ve had my coffee.
Every morning I stand in this corner and struggle to find things in that small cabinet to the right (in the picture above) where I keep all of the coffee essentials -mugs, extra k-cups, ground coffee, etc. I often have to push things aside in order to get to what I’m looking for in that small-ish cabinet…………but this past lazy, Saturday morning I realized the simplest solution to my problem would be a five minute switcharoo. Why had I not thought to do this sooner?!
I moved the drinking glasses over to the small cabinet where I used to keep all the coffee stuff…………..
and I put all the coffee stuff in the larger double cabinet where the drinking glasses had been.
Am I the only one that hardly ever thinks to do stuff like this? I mean, just because the coffee stuff had lived in that same cabinet since the day we moved in 4 years ago doesn’t mean it can’t live in a different cabinet. Why not rearrange, if the current set-up isn’t exactly ideal? It was a total “duh” moment for me – do you have those? This is why I love me a lazy, Saturday morning. It gives you a chance to stop and think……………and do a 5 minute switcharoo that is totally life changing………..okay maybe not life changing…………..but definitely daily life improving.
No more shuffling through the smaller cabinet trying to find my favorite coffee mug. This set up is so much better! Have you done any 5 minute switcharoos in your home lately?
