I'm a big slacker when it comes to posting blogs/pictures about Project Simplify. But rest assured, I am doing the work.
Last week was the kitchen. While I didn't overhaul my entire kitchen, I did focus on the cupboards that store pots and pans, plates and bake ware, cutting boards and the like. I took everything out of the cupboards, put back what we really use, put the seasonal (mostly snowman-themed) stuff in the storage unit, and put the rest in a box for goodwill. It feels great to have just what we use/love in the cupboards. All pans containing teflon are gone. Things I got as bridal shower gifts (nearly 4 years ago!) that I never use are gone too. (I was going to post a picture, but I thought people might recognize things they'd given us and get offended...)
I love this.
I love taking loads of unused stuff to goodwill. I love the absence of clutter in my cupboards. I definitely won't miss the disorganization and the pots and pans crashing down with I try to pull one out of the mess!
This week's project is: Closets and Countertops and Drawers (oh my!). I haven't decided exactly what I'll be doing for this. We've cleaned out and organized closets recently, but I do have a drawer or two and a countertop area that seem to collect random things. =]
Next week's project is big. And scary. And my husband has already offered to help. We'll talk more about that later.
On an unrelated note - SPRING is officially tomorrow, and it is actually warm here in Maine! Unfortunately I can't find my sandals. Any of them. And that is related to next week's project. =]
