Tackling clutter

 Tackle It Tuesday Meme

 My cupboards have  always been full of clutter. But, I must admit, that my New Years’ Resolution of de-cluttering is on the move, albeit a bit slow.


 I have a terrible habit of putting things into the nearest place, rather than the most practical place. So the clutter builds up. I tackled it, much to the pleasure of my 4 children, who during the cleaning-out process, found a place to hide!

 Two up-two down…

Eventually, after much frivolity, the task was completed…

 How long will it stay like this?

    LOL. How sweet! The cupboard looks nice. I love empty space!

    ~Me too, although if you were to open all my other cupboards, you’d be shocked! Under the sink next week. Help!!!

    Great job! I remember when my children would play in the cabinets. It is sad they are all too old to want to do that anymore!

    Thanks for coming by my tackle. It is great to have visitors.

    ~You’re never to old to squeeze into a cupboard, I did it! Might post pics one day 😆

    ~ Hey BB! How are things in Canada? Hope you are all 100%. I’ll call in soon…

  13. 13

    LOL! My kids would have done the same thing!

    Isn’t a newly organized cabinet so refreshing? Good job!

    ~ It is. That ‘feel good’ feeling! Love your blog, especially the pic of you and the girls!

    ~Thanks Stacey! I’ve been online looking for fridge magnets tonight, then I realised….our fridge is integral 😦

    Great tackled kids 😉 He he. How fun.

    It looks great. It’s so much easier to keep it that way if doing it now and then, so this could be a repeating tackle…

    ~ Absolutely. It’s a a mess again! (Shhhh!)

    Great tackle! I love the picture of the kids. It looks very organized in the end. I love your header picture too. The baby has very pretty eyes:)

    ~Thankyou! So kind. Hey, I bet you dusted and didn’t take any notice of what we all said!

  18. 18

    That’s a great picture with the kids in there. Mine used to love to climb into spaces, too.

    Great work!

    ~And great work to you, too! I’d love a desk like that. All my papers get ‘put away’ into cupboards, never to be seen again!

    Babybull40 Says:

    I thought the one with the kids was really cute.. you are doing awesome with the de-cluttering… I have done that job too and it makes life much easier when looking for certain items…

    ~Thanks BB. It’s something I really need to work on. I’m a bugger for clutter!

    Beautiful job. (And flexible kids) We’re in Oklahoma, USA. Just had an “ice storm.” It was mild, but enough to make us “hunker down.”

    ~ Oh, the little faces! Hope things get better soon….

    Jen Says:

    Looks great! That picture of your children is too funny. They must either be very little or those cabinets are really big.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    ~You’re welcome, I’ll call again soon!

    OOoh, the after looks great, but my favorite is the in-between! 🙂 Great tackle, and what a neat cabinet, I could totally use something nice like that in my kitchen!

    ~The cupboards are always easier to tackle than the kids!

  23. How FUN! You sure have a full house over there! 🙂

    It looks great BTW! 🙂

    ~Thanks Janice. I just popped into yours and saw your ‘Wordless Wednesday’ I nearly forgot mine. I’m off to post it right now! 😉
