Day 6 – Under Kitchen Sink

After two days of being extremely unmotivated (and reading another book), here’s what I should have posted on Wednesday!  When we moved into this apartment in February, I was 34 weeks pregnant, on partial bedrest and couldn’t help much at all with the moving. I was so thankful for all the help from our family with the entire move and my plan was to get organized when I was putting everything away.  That mostly worked – except that I lost motivation by the time I got around to areas that no one else ever sees (under the sinks, linen closet, my closet, etc).  Since I had basically just tossed everything under the kitchen sink, I found a lovely surprise that I had no idea was there.  Mold!  Not very much of it and my dad cleaned it up for me, but apparently there is a tiny leak in one of the pipes down there.  So after getting that taken care of and bleaching everything that was down there, here are my pictures.

Totally embarrassed by the before picture:

I really don’t know why I need so many different cleaning products for a small 3 bedroom apartment.

Well, since I’m going to have to post again tonight because of my laziness (and I really don’t have much to say about the disaster that was hiding under my sink), that’s all for this one. 🙂

Day 4 – Kitchen Cupboards

I’ve been slacking. We have had an unusually busy weekend and instead of blogging in the evenings, I got sucked into reading “Fifty Shades of Grey”. I wasn’t a huge fan of the book, but it was addicting to read and only wasted 2 days of my life. Now, on to my cupboards.

They really were in need of some organizing, but I can’t say that my disorganization of the cupboards embarrass me. I’ll be embarrassed when I have to reveal Day 8 (the pantry).

Before(ignore the horrible quality, my iPhone camera is having some issues):

After:

I never realized how many spices I own. The funny thing is, I don’t even know what I’d use half of them for. I usually dump a little of whatever smells good into what I’m cooking.

So, my kitchen is halfway organized now. It’ll be complete after I get to the pantry, fridge & freezer. There is a benefit to missing a day here and there, by then time I complete my “28 days”, it’ll be July. And we’ll be one month closer to homecoming! 🙂

Fortunately, Fifty Shades of Grey didn’t impress me enough that I’d want to purchase the 2nd and 3rd books in the series. Now that I don’t have reading to distract me, I’ll do the linen closet tomorrow. 🙂
