Last week found me in the kitchen. I tackled the cabinets. I took everything out, wiped them out and made sure everything was in its place.
I started with the cabinet that holds our daily dishes. Once everything was out and the cabinet was wiped out I started putting things back in. The area on the left on the middle shelf holds the most used medicines for Megan. It had become cluttered with the family being sick. I put things that didn't fit into the plastic container away in the bath closet.
Once the medicines were sorted it was just a matter of putting this cabinet back together. Then I moved on to the upper cabinets on the other side of the kitchen.
Once again I took everything out and wiped off the shelves. There were some more meds that needed to be put back into their proper home. The middle, corner cabinet holds the toaster. Knocking the crumbs out before it is put back isn't enough. I will have to bring in the dust buster and clean that bottom shelf off weekly or more. We all know having crumbs could led to unwanted guest. I think I'll pass on that!
Next I tackled the area I was dreading... under the sink and the cabinet that holds the trash can.
All I can say about the cabinet that holds the trash can is yuck, yuck, yuck. I will certainly tackle that area more often. I only needed to wipe out the cabinet under the sink and straighten it out. I need to be diligent at making sure everyone is putting things back where they go under there. All of us are in there almost daily to take care of a cleaning task.
After each cabinet was wiped out I also washed down the outside of the cabinets. Even though this is an area behind closed doors it made me feel so much better to have it taken care of. I ran out of time to take tackle the pantry so that will have to wait for another day.
What projects have you tackled in the last week? Tune in next Tuesday to see what homemaking debt I tackle. It is one of those items I have put off for far too long.
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
