Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I did pretty good this week, and feel like I accomplished a lot. I didn't get everything on my list done, but I got a lot of things done that weren't on my list too.

  • Deep clean master bedroom
  • Clean out front closet
  • Organize cabinet
  • CJ's closet
  • Ruthi's room projects - Still didn't get to this!
  • Work on business stuff - Didn't get very far on this one.

Ok, and now for the visuals.
First, the front closet. This closet holds coats, blankets, beach towels and much more. I keep a box in here where I toss stuff that will be going to the thrift store or clothing that will be passed down. It was very much overflowing, and everything was a big, ugly mess.

Before:


And After:

I took several small bags of clothes to a couple of friends who can use them for their kids. And I have a large bag of stuff for the thrift store waiting patiently now in my car to be dropped off.
The box in the closet is now empty. The thing behind the box is an air matress. And the flowery thing is a set of cardboard drawers that holds lightbulbs, cords, gloves & mittens, etc. Everything up top is now neatly folded. And I even added a place in this closet to hang Ruthi's and my bike helmets. (Chip's and CJ's are out with the bikes - don't ask me why ours aren't! That would probably make more sense, huh?)

My bedroom was really bad. As a matter of fact, I really debated on whether to even share these pictures...it's that bad! But, in my defense, the majority of this mess was because I was right in the middle of the clothing switch over, and so things were quite chaotic. The rest was because company was coming, and I tossed everything I didn't have time to deal with into our room! I'm going to show the pictures, but if a mess makes you twitch, then please look away, because this will likely cause full on convulsing! I'm warning you!

Before:



And After:


Much Better!

I actually got quite a lot of other stuff done too, so I'm pretty happy with myself. I even made a really cute cake. You can see it here.


For this week, I'm putting Ruthi's room projects at the top of my list. And I want to get a bunch of stuff baked for the freezer. Here's my list:

  • Ruthi's room projects
  • Business Stuff
  • Make several pizza crusts to freeze
  • Make a couple of batches of muffins for the freezer (for quick breakfasts)
  • Make a bunch of pancakes - also for the freezer
  • Make invitations for Ruthi's tea party later this month.

    By the way my dad was a firefighter for years - he retired a couple of years ago.

  4. Not sure what happened with the pics, but I think they are fixed now! (Though maybe I should have taken that as a sign that I shouldn't be showing this horror!)
