Tackle it Tuesday- Kitchen!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Well this week for Tackle it Tuesday, I tackled the kitchen! Last week I took on me and let me update you a bit on that. After saying I was going to take time for myself I ended up sick- sick with a fever, running nose, cough, headache, chills, and body aches. It was brutal the first few days. The night before that though I did get some family time and went to a baseball game. So needless to say with a cold I sure did get some rest. It didn't help much with getting my to do list done. But I knocked out a lot the past two days and I am quite happy to say I added the kitchen in and it looks great. Its small but it can get cluttered quick. Here are the before pictures of the stove, the pantry and the tupperware cupboard where my little Peanut insists on playing.

I could really use a shelf in the back of the tupperware cupboard to make it more organized but that will have to wait for another day. I decluttered and disinfected every part of that kitchen, as well as sweep and mop, do all the dishes and finish the laundry that was piled up. Now I am working on my desk and all my work stuff and finding some place for that.

My daughter and I worked on her room on Sunday going through all the clothes and organizing her toys. I didn't get the before pictures so I decided to skip on the after pictures. Things are coming along nicely. And as for my long to do list from last week.... well the stuff I got done is highlighted in pink. The rest is still needing to be done and has joined a new list for this week.

Your kitchen looks great! I agree you definitely need a shelf in that cabinet. Do you have an IKEA near you, they have great stuff for reasonable prices.

Great job tackling! You have a long list of things to do. It sounds just like me! I might have to add my list to the end of my next Tackle it Tuesday post. I just started participating in this meme. I think it is a good one. It will keep me on track with all the house projects that keep piling up.

Your kitchen looks awesome-especially the pantry! I have issues with my tupperware cabinet as well. A shelf is a good idea.

Great job!
Yeah, it seems like as soon as we complete one chore another pops up.


Jenny said...

Great tackle! My little ones always insist on playing with the tupperware too.

Have a great day!

Nicki said...

Your kitchen looks great! The kitchen has always been my favorite part of the house to organize... maybe because all of the food involved!
