Mine en place is the French phrase meaning the preparation of dishes & ingredients before the beginning of service in a professional kitchen.

But I’m going to use it a bit differently. I am taking it to mean everything in its place. So that means at the end of the night putting things away, organising areas of the house & decluttering.

I also want to take the time to put things in their proper place for each room in the house, & make better use of the space. Trying to be smart, I think I can tackle one area per month.

Before I even got off to a start Kirsty from That Noise Is Mine shared a decluttering challenge she came across. So I have even more inspiration as well as advice since I was just going to make it up as I go.
