Prepare for the Next Meal

This isn't a new hint or even one I thought up myself but it's helped me many times over the years and I think it could help others. When you finish a meal and get the table cleared, set it for the next meal. It really helps to get a head start on the evening meal when the table is ready to go.


In the kitchen do whatever you can to prepare for the next meal, especially breakfast. I set out the oatmeal bowls, pan for cooking, and juice glasses. I measure the water and oats and cover them for the night. When I'm still fuzzy headed in the morning it really helps to have this all done. It only takes a couple of minutes to do all this but it sure seems to cut down on the prep time for the next meal when you're tired.

That is a good idea! As soon as we get rid of the roaches I will be doing that (I have a lot of roaches in my house that I can not get rid of, my daughter moved back in withus her and her 4 children the apartment she moved from was infested with roach, and they brought them all here, I can not program my Mr. Coffees to have coffee ready, because of the roaches)
