Tackle it Tuesday

I wasn't kidding when I said I was blogging again to help me get back on track and get things done again! So here I am after a sweet forever participating in Tackle it Tuesday again!

According to Flylady's schedule, this week is zone 2 - the kitchen. I LOVE when I'm doing things the "Flylady way" - it makes me a much happier person. Heaven only knows why I don't do it ALL the time!

Anyway, I started checking off kitchen tasks today. (I've added my progress to my sidebar over there <--- to help hold me accountable!) And since I'm working hard in the kitchen this week, what better place to do some tackling!

I did some huge tackling by getting lots of baking done to fill my freezer. I've baked some more since that post. I made cheddar biscuits, a loaf a white bread and a loaf of wheat bread. I was planning to make some pita bread, but haven't gotten to it yet. I still plan to do that as well as some pretzels.

I tackled my freezer - I had to clean it out so I could put all the new baked goodies in there! I took a before picture, but forgot the after. And I'm in bed at the moment, so I'm not going to do it right now. If I remember, I'll add it later.

Then I tackled two cabinets. I still have more to do, but I got two behind me. I'm trying to get rid of some stuff and make better use of the space I have. My cabinet that holds my everyday plates/bowls, mixing bowls and some cups, etc was getting pretty bad. It could sometimes be dangerous to open the door!

So I moved some things around, relocated a couple things and even got rid of some. Much better now!

Then was my other dish cabinet. It didn't look terrible, but still needed a little help. The shelves were kinda dirty, because this is an open cabinet. I love having no doors, but it requires a little extra cleaning. Here's before:

Again, some relocating, a little bit of purging and some rearranging and here's the after:

Those bowls on the bottom right were in an inconvenient location before. We use them a lot, so I needed them to be a little more accessible. After shifting things around, I had room for them!

I have lots more I intend to accomplish before the day is done, but that will have to wait for next week!

  1. Wow, you were busy.

    I've tried the flylady and maybe she was overwhelming for me because at the time I had 3 kids (a set of twins in there) all under the age of 4.

    I do still do her "clean your sink" everyday.

  2. Awesome tackles!!
