Taking Back My Home Week Three

I'm working and posting a few days late on this linkup, thanks to illness and some other things that just took up the bulk of my free time this week. Despite all the extra busyness of the week,  I was happy to still get the pantry cleaned out and organized, to keep up with 34 Weeks of Clean.  

I am posting some before/after shots of my pantry cabinet. Most of my food storage is in a pantry in my basement which received a recent overhaul and happily didn't need any extra attention. Our day to day stuff is kept in a small cabinet in the kitchen, which, for some reason, gets out of control very quickly.

Not too long ago I had gone through and removed any expired food, so the project turned into more of an 'organizational' one than a deep cleaning one, although the pantry can always benefit from a little scrubdown!

While I am still working through the Declutter 365 Project I was happy that the tasks overlapped each other this week, so I was able to slowly work through both projects. Even though I'm a little behind, I am anticipating getting all caught up this coming week, and ending January in a cleaner, more organized fashion.

One big change I have implemented, after decluttering my counters, was to really work at keeping them clean, cleared off,  and polished. It has been working well and making everyone's life easier.

This week's tasks continue to be working through the kitchen cabinets and drawers, focusing on decluttering and organizing food and supplies. By the end of January, I am going to have one really functional kitchen!

  1. Isn't it nice to have an organized pantry? You did a great job.

  2. You did a GREAT job, Erica! You are right, if we stay on top of things daily, there is less work to do in the end. Thanks for linking up again, it is fun to share the journey with friends!

    1. It has been really fun and very motivating to see what others are up to as well.
