It sure feels good to do some productive things during this time of uncertainty. I went through the rest of the cupboards and cleaned them out. I got rid of my old pressure cooker since I got an Instapot for Christmas. I also got rid of a few things we don't use any more, but most important I was able to take everything out of each shelf and wipe down the shelves and put things back in an organized way. I also cleaned the counters and floors. I had a little bit more time today to work on this, and felt very motivated. But, there are days when it is a struggle to just do one shelf or drawer! What matters is that I am moving forward regardless of the pace. I am going in the right direction.
One of the cupboards I did was the medicine cupboard. When are kids were very young, we had a lot of different medicines, but now we rarely use any. I used to go through the cupboard every 6 months and replace medicine that needed it. Then it got to doing it once each year because we didn't go through much. I am embarrassed to say that it has been probably 2 years or more since I have thoroughly gone through our medicine. I got tired of replacing medicine that we never used because it was outdated. This is the cupboard after I was finished:
And, this is the stuff I got rid of:
We had 4 packages of cough drops and we rarely even go through one package in a year. We had some old multivitamins that looked brown and I think they are supposed to be some other color. I really messed up on this shelf! Oh well, it looks better now and everything is updated. .
How are you doing on your challenge? Are you getting some shelves and drawers completed?
