tackling the little things

4/1/09 - Updated to add: This post is part of Masked Mommy's Cupboard Pow Wow! Check out all the cupboard transformations by clicking on the Pow Wow button to the left.


Seriously, I don't think I would get anything "extra" done around here (besides the everyday tasks) if it weren't for Tackle it Tuesday. I have been meaning to organize 3 different spaces for quite a long time. Of course, I have more than just these 3 spaces that need a little TLC, but these are the ones that have gotten to me the most! These spaces aren't seen by our visitors or guests, but I see them every day. And every day the disorganization has bothered me, so FINALLY I have taken the challenge to tackle it today!

Space #1 - the kids' toiletries cupboard

BEFORE
(this picture was taken after I gathered up the children's first aid/medicine supplies and put them all in one container...
just try to picture it a little bit messier)


AFTER
(don't let the top shelf fool you...usually it's full of towels, but since our washing machine has been broken for 2 weeks now, we're out of bath towels and are now moving on to beach towels-don't worry we're getting it fixed tomorrow!)

Space #2 - the kitchen misc. drawer

BEFORE

AFTER
(I bought the sectioned organizer at least a month ago...
that's how long I have been wanting to organize this drawer)


Space #3 - the kids' servingware cupboard

BEFORE

AFTER
It feels great to say that I got some things done, but now I'm off to go clean up the things that everyone can see without having to open a cupboard or drawer, like this...


Seriously, how does this happen?
I swear I just had this all picked up!

Great tackle! The before and after photos are super. Doesn't it feel good to cross a couple of jobs off the list.

It seems as soon asyou turn your back they are tearing it all up again, doesn't it? Sheesh!

Great tackles! I think I'm gonna hit my silverware drawers next week.

You have inspired me to tackle my kids' serving ware cupboard.

I know there are sippys without straws and plastic cups from Red Robin (hamburger restaurant) that will be removed in a heartbeat!

Nice addition to Masked Mommy's Pow-WoW!

Man, those kid's cabinets just really get out of control, don't they? Looks great!
