Too Many Tomatos
She recommends working in 15 minute increments at a time using a timer. Her theory is that anyone has 15 minutes to spare and that you would be amazed at what you could accomplish by overcoming inertia and beginning with only a 15 minute commitment. Once started, if you feel like working longer, you can but you don't have to. This is very empowering to me.
I can rarely, almost never, find a Whole Day to clean my house, but I Do have lots of 15 minute windows throughout the day. I have started, and am seeing big results that make me happy. Success breeds success! These little changes make such a difference! They motivate me to continue to clean up hot spots of clutter and to form new habits.
I have been wanting to organize my pantry for quite awhile. While Tori cleaned and vacuumed the basement, I worked alongside of her emptying my pantry. Taking inventory, I realized that I had 14 cans of tomato products! Apparently, no shopping trip is complete without a can or three! Sauce, paste, crushed, diced and prepared seasoned sauce are now organized by way of product and expiration date! It's time to make some chili!
