Monday message

Provident living class will be this Tuesday, the 21st, at 9:30 at the Shooks. The class will be on sourdough. - this is from the church site

"We want you to be ready with your personal storehouses filled with at least a year’s supply. You don’t argue why it cannot be done; you just plan to organize and get it done" (Spencer W. Kimball, August 1976). 

"Those families will be fortunate who, in the last days, have an adequate supply of food because of their foresight and ability to produce their own" (Ezra Taft Benson, in Conference Report, Oct. 1980, 47; or Ensign, Nov. 1980, 33)

This is the time of year that we start to think about organizing and cleaning out stuffed closets, I know I have been working on this myself... this shows some great ideas on doing your kitchen drawers if you have them. I especially love the tool drawer.... hmmmmm might have to do that one myself :) - I like the chalkboard on the inside of the cupboards great ideas for working with space that is wasted.  ignore the advertisements, I am just trying to get your juices flowing and show you that you can do it with what you have on hand. I heard somewhere that you should not run right out and buy organizing things, that first to use what you have at hand. I like the cans they show with the tools, very cute so this is for inspiration. Sister Smith from the other ward did a neat thing like this inside her tall kitchen cupboard door. She hung one of these that holds spices and mixes that are in packets and such a great idea try to think what you have and how you can use it differently.  - this gal gives you a tour of her cupboards. Also as a side note, look through her site. She is fantastic with using food from storage everyday. a great idea for storing pots and pans using a tension rod and S hooks. Tension rods can be used the other way as well up and down in a cupboard to help you with cookie sheets and such great idea

So these have been just some ideas to get your juices flowing because we feel more like doing things if we don't have to dig for things or hunt for things... and using what we have on hand to organize is a frugal thing.

I have heard of a sweet sister who have lined their cupboards and drawers with pretty pictures from the ensign so that every time they open the cupboard or drawer they have beautiful inspiring pictures to remind them of who they are.

We might not be able to afford the latest kitchen remodel but we can be using what we have to help us organize even if it is a mug to put pens in.

Look around and find what areas you would like to work in. I knew someone who did one drawer a week to get organized and by the end she had them all done and it was a task that was not a huge task. She broke it down so remember to break it down. because she mentioned her food storage room I thought you would want to see it she gives you tips for getting dinner on the table

Remember that once you use something in your storage it is gone. Your job is to use replace and add so that you can be growing your storage and rotating it too!

Do not get overwhelmed, talk is easy... just do the best you can :)
