The kitchen counter is a busy surface. We use it to cook, study, play, eat, and more. Unfortunately, a counter that is crowded is not very functional. Cleaning the kitchen counter every day is one way we can keep kitchen clutter at bay.
The secret behind this “selfie discipline” is that you cannot effectively clean a surface unless it is empty. Therefore, by making yourself clean the entire counter, you will also prompt yourself to put away whatever has piled up in the previous 24 hours.
Resist the urge to stack items up in order to clean the counter. Make yourself take anything that has landed on the counter back to its rightful home. By performing this task once each day, you help prevent the perpetually accumulating items from becoming an overwhelming pile.
Do you clean your kitchen counter every day? Does it force you to put things away or do you stack them up?
