91 Day De-Clutter Challenge
Mary is walking us through our homes, helping us to purge, purge, purge! We aren't doing any deep cleaning this time around, we're just going through and getting rid of the extras...
Do you feel stuck at your house? Is clutter causing you any stress? How free would you feel to have a clean and organized house right now? What would you do next?!
I'm also linking to Saturday Snapshot :-)
To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky at West Metro Mommy Reads. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
This week's challenge goal was to go through the kitchen, pantry and dining room. Yikes!! I don't have an actual dining room, just an area with a table so that part was easy. The pantry? Nope, not even going to show you that. It is a walled off section in the garage that I can't even walk in right now. My son is able to reach for the stuff I need, if I know exactly where it is so I guess that's something.
I did go through one drawer. . . yeah, I know, one drawer is nothing compared to how fabulous some of the other posts are. I did clean out the fridge but I do that before trash day most weeks.
I started with this
Now, to "fix" this. It started with a new purchase. . .
Purple! :-) A spoon, slotted spoon, spatula and a spoonula. All heat resistant to 400°F and not metal (we still have some coated cookware). Then we found a (purple!) slotted turner and were able to get rid of the old one.
I cleared out the drawer and put everything in a box before going through stuff. I found FOUR cookie scoops. Two different sizes, one pair matched, they're the ones I kept.
These are the things we're still thinking about, some I don't know what they do!
This is what the utensil drawer currently looks like, there are few things in the dishwasher.
My kitchen and pantry have a LLOOOOONNNNG way to go but I'm happy with my progress, it feels really good so far. Next week we start on kid's room #1 and as I don't have little kids in the house I should be able to work on the dreaded office/black hole of a bedroom. um, maybe it would be easier to stay in the kitchen for another week ;-)
