I do a modified FlyLady, which means that I usually only get the daily missions. However, last night I got an email titled "Cost of a Kitchen Makeover--Priceless" and I read it. One of the themes was the importance of clearing off counters and other level spaces, making your kitchen less cluttered. I've done a pretty good job of this (and it makes a HUGE difference!) but there was one area--near my stove--that wasn't great. I thought about it last night and came up with a way to un-clutter it.
