I'm still feeling a little bit all-over-the-place these days, but I've been working through it a little at a time. I managed to do some bigger organization and cleanout chores this week, which I found really helpful. Still have some more to work on, but it's been a good start. I started with my food storage - pantry, small cupboard, fridge, freezer and cabinet. It's amazing how quick those areas get cluttered up. But now I can see everything, and have made the space much more user friendly. Then I started restocking after a couple of marathon grocery sessions - but I was smart, and only purchased things I needed to round out my staples and make meals for this week. Today I have a few drawers and cabinets to organize, but that will be a much smaller project.
So yesterday I took a trip to Whole Foods, which is a little off the beaten path for me. I had gotten a Living Social deal for $10 off $20 worth of produce. And their produce is so nice that of course I spent WAY more than $20. But everything just looked so nice that it made me want to run home and start eating all the healthy things I had bought. I also found some interesting roasted vegetable raviolis, that are very reasonable point-wise, and some mixed squash and zucchini to make with them. It's been hard finding consistently good produce at the supermarkets, and I think it may be worth making the extra trip once a week to stock up. As long as I stay within a budget.
I think that having finally done some cleaning and organizing of my kitchen helped spur me on, and re-energized me. It kind of gives things that "first week on plan" freshness. So if you've got some clutter in your kitchen, I highly recommend tackling it!
