Spring Cleaning

Several months ago I was watching an episode of Oprah and there was a show about organizing your life. This particular one struck me as plausible for my life, because it was about taking 10 minutes at a time to do something to get organized. Today I started because there is no time like the present (and a depression-less day)!
Open up a disorganized cupboard:


Spend 10 minutes throwing out unused items and grouping like items together.
When you are all done you have something like this:


and you end up throwing away or giving away a bunch of stuff like this:



Are you kidding me? Look at all those sippy cups, and a bottle? My youngest is 6 years old, and she was breast-fed exclusively??? Now, the reality is, I only have junky plastic cups, and need to get something nicer to drink out of. Even if they are plastic, it would be nice if they would all match!

Okay, I thought the first picture was the cleaned out one--your messy cupboards are better than mine! But, I'm proud of you for tackling a project like that! Next thing I know, you'll be reading flylady again. It does feel so good, though, to be in a clean, organized place. (I'm saying this from memory as my house is anything but!) Great job!!

Sounds like flylady's "you can do anything for 15 minutes." I agree with Ms. Barney...your cupboards are better then mine. There's no way I could finish one in 12 min!
