We are in prep for our new lifestyle. We are moving in a few weeks, but we are already starting to transition to some new patterns. Our new house doesn't have a dishwasher, so we have stopped using our dishwasher even though we have one available for a while longer. The transition has been easy so far, because the dishwasher in the townhouse we're renting is HORRIBLE!
Today I bought a dish drying rack and a dishwand where you can put soap in the handle. Having the right tools has already made doing dishes very easy. The best part: our sink has been clean every night! My kitchen feels so much more organized and clean!
Hopefully we'll still feel this optimistic a few months into our season in the white cottage in the woods!
