An Additional Project

Maybe you've seen the 40 bags in forty days project. Every day till Easter, take one project...A drawer, cabinet, shelf, closet...any job, big or small that needs your attention. Clean it, organize it, throw it out, give it away or donate it. I have been doing this for a couple of weeks now. First the cabinet where all the household medication ends up...then the spice rack and shelf it's on, then the microwave... Well, yesterday it was this TV cabinet. It used to be in the foyer and a catch all. From snack foods to mail. Whatever came into the house that didn't have another place, it ended up in there. I didn't have the nerve to show you the before.

This is the after. A zillion times better than it was, and a box full of stuff to donate.
One of my honey-do's is putting on a different back on the cabinet (beadboard) and a shelf or two. This cabinet is still sturdy and worth repurposing.

Baby steps, right?

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.

So funny. You should see my pantry right now. I wouldn't show a "before" of that, either! But it must be done as nosy home buyers will be looking under every nook and cranny....grrrr! Bet it feels good to purge, know I love it when I do. Enjoy the 30plus temps today! xoKathy

I so need to do this. Good for you.
It was so beautiful here today. in the 50's and sunny. You really didn't even need a jacket. All I wanted was to stay at home and nurse my migraine but I forced myself to get out....I'm glad I did. Have a great week-end. Hugs

Doesn't it feel so good to clean things out and purge? I have a lot to do in my house too, but especially the dungeon, AKA the basement. I'm so proud of you and Tyke for doing all that walking. Brian and I need to get back in the habit of doing this too now that the temps are actually above zero!

It is the season . . . clearing and sorting around here too! Good idea to repurpose that TV cabinet . . . Lots of storage space in there! Happy 40 bags full . . .
