Systems in your home

Got any?

I have a jam system - always alternate between a light jam and a dark jam.

On gooseberry right now, blackcurrant up next for maximum contrast.

Now, i thought the system was quite loose but its occurred to me that I always get blackcurrant around August/September time.

Two slices of toast = one dark jam (cherry, blackcurrant) and one light jam (e.g. raspberry) or marmalade.

Sorry, my brain isn’t working so couldn’t think of anything other than jam :man_facepalming:

Interesting that raspberry is a light jam in your house when its a dark jam here (strawberry is light though ofc)

I don’t tend to have gooseberry or apricot so strawberry/raspberry is about as light as it goes in this house. Did get a fancy peach and champagne one from the garden centre a few months ago which was :heart_eyes: though

Sponges

New sponge for washing glass things.
Previous glass sponge goes to general use sponge.
Previous general use sponge goes to dog stuff sponge.
Previous dog stuff sponge goes in the bin.

The chain can be triggered from anywhere, but it’s usually the general use that moves it along.

My weekday cereal is Dr Mrs Epimer’s weekend cereal, and vice versa.

Nice!

Recently implemented the two-tea towel system in my kitchen.
A second tea towel now hangs from the cupboard door handle just below the sink. This means that when I need to dry my hands I don’t have to move to the cooker and drip a trail water across the floor.

Easier to say what we don’t have systems for: nothing
