Tackle it Tuesday

I tackled the entire house on Monday! I did all of the laundry and cleaned every room and bathroom. (Well, Scott cleaned our bedroom - but I did the master bath) I also tackled the twins' clothes. Their drawers were stuffed with clothes they have outgrown! I put all the smaller clothes away to sell or donate, and organized the drawers with their new clothes from the Holidays. Here are some pictures from a couple of my tackles. First is the play room. I do not clean the play room very often because it gets destroyed again within minutes! It is nice to do once a month or so, so I can clean out any trash that mysteriously came to play, or broken toys, or missing socks.

After I was finished with all of my cleaning and laundry, I decided to clean out a few cabinets in the kitchen.

BEFORE -hodge podge




BEFORE-too many cups!





BEFORE-again, too many cups!






AFTER
I wanted to make some room for my new set of Coke glasses that I received for Christmas from my sister Patti. Thanks Patti!




AFTER
I decided to put away the cups that match our dishes, and only use my favorite novelty cups:)




AFTER
I made a lot more room for... hopefully more plastic containers!
What did you tackle this week?

Wow look at you go! You did an awesome job...I should have taken a before pic of my living room! We FINALLY took down all of our Christmas stuff, [it's hard finding time when both of us aren't working and are motivated to do something other than hang out]and I rearranged my furniture something I was very proud of myself for...b/c I haven't ever done that since I've been married! =]

Have a great day!

WOW! You were so busy. I spent the day putting away my Christmas tree and decorations. I should have blogged about that, but I forgot to take pics before. I can't tell by the pic... have you tried any of your coffee or tea mixes?
