There comes a time when just 'throwing it in, closing the door, and waiting to see if there's a crash' becomes unsustainable... With pots and pans, this crash could potentially become a smash when the door opens again, so what a relief that I can now see exactly what I have without everything stacked as high as it could go!
The most important cupboard, that is potentially the most used, and (of course) the messiest, was my baking cupboard... For so long, even after 'tidying' it before, I still managed to end up throwing things back in and hoping for the best! ... Well, this time I tried to be more efficient. I have little flat cupcake trays that I don't think I've ever used, they can go, and a couple of other moulds that look great and pretty, but I have never actually used them, and so being honest with myself I probably won't use them ever... Here's the baking cupboard's before and after photos:
The spice rack (which contains more cupcake decorating supplies than spices) was next. I again had to be honest with myself and ask myself questions like "Why am I keeping this? Am I ever going to use this? and; Could it go somewhere else?". Here are the spice rack's before and after photos:
My dog always loves when I clean out the fridge... Whenever I do, though, I almost always ask the exact same questions: Why do I have 3 onion/tomato halves all wrapped up? How old is that avocado? Why is there two packets of half finished mozarella cheese? And why do we have yoghurt that went off last month? Wow... It definitely was time for a big clean out! Sadly, my fridge always looks so empty when I clean it out... Hmm.. That tomato paste that just sits there in between uses has probably been there a bit too long! *chuck*
Pantry will have to wait, now, because (surprise, surprise) I need a change of scenery again! That's 5 areas (despite them being out of original order) crossed off in 2 days... Yay. I'm hoping this will give me extra time to focus on the pantry, laundry and especially the shed! I have already taken 'before' photos in anticipation of its finished and de-cluttered amazingness :)
