Clutter Video Tip: Stop Washing So Many Dishes

Ahh, summer vacation; the pool, the cookouts, the dishpan hands? What’s with all of these dirty cups and glasses? There is a way to cut down on all of these dirty dishes without dehydrating your family. (Click here to watch on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded player.)


Hi. I’m Lorie Marrero, and today’s Clutter Video Tip is about saving glasses during the summer when everybody’s drinking a lot of water and Kool-aid and whatever else you drink around your house in the summer. This is a great way to make sure that there aren’t so many dishes being washed constantly in the dishwasher, having a parking space for your glasses. So, here is one way to do it. This is a coaster that says “Dad” on it, and that’s my husband’s glass that he likes to use. So, we put this down in a certain spot in the kitchen, and that’s his glass. So, when he’s finished using it, he parks it right there. This is another way to do it, just having a particular location in the kitchen. This is my spot right here, next to this little decorative object that we have in the kitchen. I park my glass there, everybody knows it’s mine, and the kids have their spots as well. And then we are able to re-use the glasses, and we always know which one is ours.
