I don't know if it is the Nesting Instinct kicking in already or if I had finally had my fill with my house being a perpetual disaster, but we spent our long Memorial Day Weekend on Operation Organization as I like to call it.
Over the next few posts, I am going to show you some of the projects and messes we tackled. I am embarrassed by the Before shots but I hope we can continue to be friends. :)
Maybe these posts will encourage you to do the same - or at the very least, allow you to scoff in horror at another household's mess!
My first room to tackle was da-da-daaaaaa - The Kitchen
My first victim?
The refrigerator and freezer.
Clean out all the shelves - throw away out dated food, consolidate containers and give every shelf a good soapy scrubbing.
Do the same for all of the drawers
Put everything back in a more organized manner
I have to say, I was a bit shocked at how much stuff we had that was either outdated or could be put into a smaller container. It made me a little sad to feel like we wasted some of those things - especially the condiments that were pushed to the back of the fridge that we didn't really know were there. I think this new set up will help us though use things up before they go bad.
