Let me start by saying that I haven’t always made the “greenest” of choices, and that I am still not an environmental nut.

A family calendar is the best way to coordinate all the comings and goings of every single member of your family, and to make sure you aren’t, as a whole, spread too thin, and get enough family together time. That’s why this week’s challenge is organizing your family calendar and to keep and actually get in the habit of using it on a daily basis.

This week’s challenge is organizing china and glassware, to keep it clean and safe for your use.
When I refer to china I am using the term to encompass ceramic tableware, porcelain and fine china place settings and sets of serving pieces.
Some people have a couple of sets of china and glassware, including an “everyday” set and also a nicer set reserved for use for special occasions, that you may have received as wedding presents.
No matter whether you have only one set, or many though, you should keep it stored nicely to keep it safe, and also allow you to use it when you want, without it being a big ordeal to get it out for use.
After all, there is no point in owning nice things if you don’t occasionally use and enjoy them.
Are you new here? This challenge about storage for china dishes and crystal glassware is part of the 52 Week Home Organization Challenge.
