A few weeks ago, I started straightening one kitchen shelf, and ended up filling two garbage bags full of expired food, vitamins and empty containers from all the other shelves and refrigerator. It was a task that got WAY out of control when it turned into a cleaning frenzy, but I'm still enjoying the afterglow every time I open my food cabinets. Ahhh. Sanctuary. It feels good to be able to find the peanut butter jar again.
I thought I'd made excellent progress that day, but resting on my laurels isn't a good idea when so many other shelves cry out for their day of liberation. Ladies, we must fight on.
Today's Small Thing is to find ONE poor shelf that needs straightening and put it out of its misery. Organize the items it holds, discard the unnecessary things and make the area look presentable! You might find your disorganized candidate in the bathroom, under a mess of beauty and hygiene products. Or, your shelf might be hidden in a closet, forgotten under dusty boots and outgrown jeans. Maybe yours is in the kitchen, holding the pots and pans in disarray. Why, a refrigerator shelf would even qualify!
Wherever you might find your disheveled shelf, in sheconds you'll have it shpiffy! (forgive me, I'm shorry - I can't help myshelf)
POINTS: 30 for straightening one shelf
BONUS POINTS: 20 each for up to 5 more - (That's 100 EXTRA points!)
Which shelf (or shelves) will you set free from chaos today?? I'm tackling my main pantry...
