Remember my word for 2009? My goal this week is to CREATE a more organized home. There is a whole list of HUGE projects that have needed attention for some time. I decided this was the week to tackle the majority of them.
Yesterday the girls and I used the divide and conquer method to totally clean out our two refrigerators in the kitchen and our upright freezer in the garage. They are now all cleaned, organized and ready for “refills.”
Today we attacked the kitchen cupboards. We finally found the source of the weevil infestation. Gross, right? Thank goodness it’s just been this past week that we started seeing the little buggers (only on our plates and not in our food). It was a stray piece of hard bread in the cup cupboard. I’m guessing Special Dark threw it in there when he went to get a cup for his chocolate milk. I keep all of our plates and cups in a lower cabinet so the kids can easily unload the dishwasher and set the table. We sucked them all into the vacuum and bleached the shelves down.
Other projects slotted for this week include: reorganizing the bathroom cabinets and linen closets, conquering the coat closet, straighten the fabric and craft closets, and helping the kids declutter their bedroom closets.
If you don’t see me around much this week at least you’ll know why!
