Tackle It Tuesday....

I am once again tackling an area of my home that so very desperately needed it....many thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom once again for helping to straighten up our place one Tuesday at a time!! This week the tackle is the corner cabinet in our kitchen.....

It is so overloaded with food...that when you go to turn it to get something from the other side...everything starts falling over and sometimes even off the shelves!!! Just one of those things...that I have been meaning to get too! Well it finally got my attention!!

Here is the Before Shot:

It was a combined effort me and kiddies tackled this one all together!!! We first emptied out the cabinet....Man...There was way too much stuff crammed in there!!! Then I wiped off the shelves...you would not believe all the spilled sugar, black pepper, and jimmies there was!!! And then we went through and tossed a few expired things, got rid of a few empty boxes, or a box with just one item in it...etc. I also discovered we have 13 boxes of pasta!!!! Way, Way too many...AHH!!!
Here it is All Emptied and Clean.....

Then is was time to fill it back up again. We just put everything remaining back inside but in groups of together items...or categories...this way we now know what we have!! It only took about 30 minutes...and look how great it looks!!!

Here is the After Shot:

All the pasta boxes did not make it back into this cabinet...as I only try to keep items we use regularly in the kitchen cabinet...as it is a bit tiny. I keep the rest of our grocery overflow in the garage pantry and shelving unit. Stay tuned...I must tackle the garage food storage area real soon!!!!

So your just hard on yourself, right?

It's funny how we all view our clutter...that didn't bother me in the least but the point is to make you feel better...GOOD JOB!

Have a great day!
