So, my super awesome cousin, Angela Z. over at the Zuroevestes told me yesterday about the 52 week home organization challenge she is doing via this blog. I actually made a resolution this year to be less of a slob, so i figured this was the thing for me! unfortunately, i joined with one day left in the first week, which means i have a lot of catching up to do in one day!
The first Week's challenge is to organize your kitchen, so have a bunch of "before" pictures of the chaos.
I'll post my "after pictures" when i'm all done tonight!
(brace yourselves...this is a little nuts!)
|I need to get things up and off this counter.|
|i really need a hook for my aprons|
|we're not alcoholics...you just have to drive your glass to a center if you want to recycle it, so we hoard it for a while :)|
|the only thing i like so far in the kitchen is my new spice rack we assembled last weekend :)|
|Bulk cereal in ugly buckets and wayyyyyy too many of my doodles on the fridge!|
|ugh. the pipes and garbage disposal under here make organization difficult. ignore the dishes :)|
|super exciting bucket close-up!|
|and even more clutter!|
|the "pantry" may be a task for another day|
|Such weird shelves...hard to find anything useful to do with them|
|I love this floating island thing (came with the house) but i need to better utilize it.|
clearly my number one problem is clutter. we have a lot of counter space, and a lot of stuff on said counters. my main focus today is going to be getting things up and off the counters, and then finding a way to better utilize cupboard space. we have a lot of cupboards, but unfortunately, several of them don't have shelves which makes things difficult.
i'm going to drive ang to work, put in a half hour at the gym, and get to work. Wish me luck!
