Organizing On Hold

I was able to get some work in the kitchen 
bottom cabinets.  It is amazing how much dust 
gets into cabinets even behind closed doors.

After removing and cleaning and purging
it feels good to have clean cabinets.

Next day the drawers are done.

I began by cleaning out the cabinets and drawers
remember the hinges, they get dusty, too.

vacuumed and wiped out the shelves & drawers

 washed those things needed
got rid of a few things
and reloaded things into their homes.

here is a before...mess..out of control
took an old coffee can and am using
it to hold brushes and such.

I did get started on the bedroom


life has happened
I had an encounter with a patch of ice
a week and a half ago,
sprained my wrist,
so organizing is on hold for a bit.

I hope others are making progress.

Until later
God bless

Happy New Year 2014

I have been thinking.....

Wow it has been a long time since I have posted
what a year it has been

so anyway
I have been thinking (a practice that always produces work for either myself or Kirk, or gets me into trouble). What if each week I took one room and deep cleaned it (this can take the whole week, a few hours a day, or one day whole hog), purge, organize. Including the windows as "a room" that would give me 8 rooms, (combining bathrooms a one room) so every 8 weeks a room would get a going over, giving each room a good cleaning 6 times a year. Regular cleaning would go on as normal (or not). Hummm, it might keep up on things better without trying to do it all at once.
 Just thinking.......

What do you think?  Want to join me?  

I think I shall start with the kitchen, I did part of it before Christmas
so will finish off on the things I saw that I want to do,
like clean out each cabinet.

I do not have any before pictures, 
but here are some afters

 Oh boy does that look better, it wasn't very nice up there.
 Everything is nice and shiny again.

Hope others will join me in this little experiment.
