Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
This week's tackle was only small. It involved rearranging the linen cupboard. Not rearranging as such, but generally making everything fit a bit better. I didn't take a before shot (forgot) but here's an "in progress" shot:

The empty spaces were filled with "stuff" which has all now been packed away and taken by the nice removalists who came this week. When I finished this is what it looked like:

Wow, all that space! My favourite bit is all the boxes across the top. They hold (from left to right): excess cleaning/toiletries, Christmas/party extra's, Baby clothes & blankets, Emergency food storage (we get cut off from the main supply route at least once a year, so I have a week's worth of "essentials" like breadmix, milk, cereals etc on hand at all times). My second favourite part is the "old" towels on the second bottom shelf, for easy access by those who need them the most (ie the people in the house under 4ft tall).

    It's funny how the opportunity to post photos of our messes turns into an incentive for tackling them.

    Oh I love the storage boxes, except there's no lids, so they're not great for long term stuff, more for keeping like stuff together and keeping the cupboard tidy.

    Storage bins are great. Shove everything in, put on the lid, instant tidy.
