Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I'm starting to tackle my kitchen cabinets. This is one of my most dreaded chores. I have a lot of cabinets and I have a lot of stuff. If I break it down and do a few at a time it doesn't seem so horrible. I've started with L.M's cabinets His food is kept separate from ours (for the most part) and everything is labeled with yellow smiley face stickers so it stands out as safe for his allergies. I'm glad I did his first. I thought I had more pasta than I do and there was some shelf stable soy milk that that I thought was OK, but had expired in December. I'll need to replace that for emergency situations. Here are the before and after pictures.

I also FINALLY put together my "2007" folders for the filing cabinet. Yes, this should have been done in January, but I guess mid-February isn't too bad. At least it's done and the big pile of 2007 paperwork can be filed and removed from the top of my dresser.

Good luck everyone with your tackles. Visit 5 Minutes For Mom to join in on Tackle It Tuesday. Happy Tuesday :)

Great job on your cabinets! They look so good. Applause from me on the 2007 folders...I haven't done mine yet. I'm off to do more laundry.

I would have been OK with your before cabinet. But thanks for sharing. This reminds me to tackle my home-office, which now looks like ... well, a jungle (what you might call a pre-, pre-, pre-before).
