Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
So I have been reading this blog the past couple of weeks and decided to jump on board with Tackle it Tuesday today! With Owen taking a longer than usual nap - I jumped up and grabbed my camera. That's part of the accountability of it all - actually posting what you did - fun =) Since Owen crawls around and puts everything in his mouth - I have to keep the floors clean, and I cannot cook dinner in a dirty kitchen - so I do my best to keep up with it as the day goes, but I have a hard time being motivated to do the other stuff. (btw - I haven't unloaded the dishwasher yet today)

My before shots:
We have this space on either side of the sink and above it that gathers and collects. Anything we don't know what to do with exactly, but want to have handy. . . stuff we want out of reach for our curious almost 3 yo. It just collects, and collects dust too (which I am very allergic to).

My after shots: I actually tossed some stuff - why keep it if you don't love it or use it!

After this I thought about stopping but Owen was still sleeping. And then I saw it - my "pantry" shelf. My kitchen is just not big enough! I am content with what I have been given. =) It still is a full shelf in the kitchen, but at least stuff isn't falling off of it - at the moment! In all it took me about 35 minutes - not bad, especially since I have a little more peace walking into the kitchen.

Happy Tuesday!

Howdy there 1st timer! Awesome tackle! I tackled my sunflower garden. Do stop by.

Looks great! It's so much easier to just tackle one or two things at a time instead of the whole 'to do list'.
You're definitely motivating me!

Looks great! I dread clearing clutter-but it does help to think of it in small amounts of time. And it always feels so much better.

AWESOME! I am glad he slept that long for you! I always have to clean with at least 1 little one awake since I have 3, 3 and under :o)
