There is a LOT of work to be done in a kitchen that feeds 8 people every single day! There is always food to be cooked, dishes to be done, and trash to be taken out! With so many to feed and take care of, I am some days OVERWHELMED by the clean-up in the kitchen!
Some days I feel like I JUST loaded the dishwasher and wiped all the counters and when I turn around…. The sink is full and the counters are cluttered with an array of blankies, stuffed animals, toys, dirty tissues, sippy cups, and snack bowls!
I needed help! I needed to end this madness!
While watching my boys watch their favorite WWE Wrestling Star, John Cena on TV, I was suddenly inspired by him! He teamed up with Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Bags and I knew Hefty and John Cena were going to be the answer to my kitchen chaos!
We had a meeting with the boys in the kitchen. I showed them the Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Bag commercial with John Cena. They got SOOOO excited about this commercial! They all immediately started arguing about who was going to take out the trash!
After breaking up an impromptu WWE match of our own in the kitchen, I told the boys they were going to be just like John Cena and help tidy up the kitchen every day. Of course, we would have to rotate who got to take out the trash…. Here are the chores we divided up between the boys ages 4-8.
- Clear the table
- Empty the clean dishwasher
- Wipe the table
- Empty the trash
- Put in a fresh Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Bag in the trash can
- Clear toys & other random objects from the kitchen
I must say that Hefty is the best kitchen bag to use when little boys are helping take out the trash! These bags are the best kitchen bags ever. They have active tear resistant technology for super strength and a convenient draw string, so the bags can handle the boys being a little rough with them. (Which means no trash dumped all over my kitchen floor!) The bags also have Arm & Hammer patented odor neutralizer to keep those nasty smells under control.
This is THE MOST BRILLIANT plan I have ever come up with!!!! All I have to say is, who wants to be like John Cena???? And they all come running to volunteer! It’s a total WIN for this momma! We are definitely going to keep using Hefty and John Cena to keep my kitchen clean. The only way this would be even more successful would be if John Cena himself showed up in my kitchen! HA!
