I am a huge proponent for “clean as you go”. I do this in most areas, but lately I have chosen to not do it with dishes. Sometimes this is a good decision- choosing to skip dishes to spend time with the kids or what not. But, some days they build up to an astronomical size that I have to tackle at some point. Today, I started the day by doing all the dishes, drying them, and putting them away. Now, one side of my sink is filled with soapy water and the other side is empty. Goal: When I am cooking, I will throw the dirty dishes into the sink, when I am done with a task wash, rinse, dry, and put away. I’ll let you know how it goes.
