So I put them to work by asking each of them to pick one cabinet to empty, wipe out, put the rarely-used stuff in a pile for me to look over so we could decide what to give away, and then put everything else back. We put on some fun music and everyone pitched in, so we got a lot done.
So. . . drumroll please. . . here are the photo results of our kitchen cabinet clean-outs!
|The spices were organized by my 19-year-old daughter, Jessica.|
|The bakeware was organized by my 17-year-old daughter, Christianna.|
|The appliance cupboard was cleaned out & organized by my 11-year-old daughter, Melissa, and my wonderful husband, Lonny. Thanks you two!|
I think of it this way - by the end of the first week, we had accomplished a TON more than I would have accomplished this week if I hadn't done the challenge, right? And the time will pass anyway, so I might as well do something to add a little joy to my life - there's nothing like decluttering and organizing to clear the mind and heart.
