I got my subscription to the Family Fun magazine this week and wanted to comment on the best idea I've read this year!
The article is titled "Taming the Dish Demons" by Kimberlee Davison. She is a mother of eight (eeek, I'm only a mother of three and I can't keep up with those dishes!). She writes that she was overwhelmed with the dish duty and could never seem to get a head of them all.
Eager for an idea, she came up with the solution to give each member of the household one plate. Each member was resposible for that plate. So they had to wash it before they ate again.
Fantastic idea and great article. I want to try this myself.
As I walk out to my kitchen and survey the mound of dishes I have, and somehow the sink was empty in the morning. This is one idea I'm going to give a go!
