Week 1 was putting all the Christmas stuff away. We've been really busy on our weekends and I haven't done it yet. This year we only have our Christmas tree and Christmas books out, so it shouldn't take too long. Maybe I'll tackle it one evening this coming week.
Week 2 was the pantry. I've been really needing to make my pantry functional again. Over the last 2 months it seems like all I did was throw things in it, rather than put them away. I found a few things that we used up and a few things to throw away, like a can of cream soup that's best by date was in 2012, old candy, and a bunch of onion and garlic skins. I only worked on it one day this week, but my pantry is almost back to normal, even though I didn't finish going through every shelf. Over the last couple years I've learned that just doing a little bit can make a big difference even if you know you don't have the time to finish something.
Here are my before and after pictures.
Just putting away the stuff that was on the floor made a big difference, because we can now walk into the pantry to get what we want or put away what we are done with.
Week 3 is working on straightening and de-cluttering the kitchen cabinets and drawers. I started this back in October, but I am looking forward to hopefully finishing some of the ideas I want to implement in my cabinets over the next week.
