Are you ever in denial about how unorganized you are?? I sure am!!

Sometimes my cupboards get to the point that I cant close them, but I don’t have the time to clean them out.  Does anyone know what I’m talking about?  You open your cupboard, something falls out and you quickly close it and pretend like you never saw the disaster that was inside.  I hate to admit it, but I do this all the time.  My husband is always laughing at me and telling me that everything needs a “home”.  I am aware that everything needs a home, and when I have the time to give it a home, I will gladly do that! Today a whole basket of stuff fell out of my bathroom cupboard.  I often wonder how it gets that bad.  Bad enough that stuff is really falling out.  This is what mine just looked like when I opened it.  Listen folks, I am being brave by showing you what a disaster my cupboard is.


It didn’t take long, and here’s the result.


So here is my new trick.  You know how sometimes you have like 10 minutes before you have to leave to go somewhere? Think of quick things like this that you can organize in 10 minutes and save them for those times that you have 10-15 extra minutes before you leave for your baseball game, church, etc.  (I know, sometimes those are rare moments.  Having an extra 15 minutes before you have to leave is a dream most days) BUT…I’m saving my kitchen cupboards for those days when I have a little extra time.

Speak Your Mind

    Hey Maris…. You are 100 times more organized than I am. Your cupboards didn’t look all that bad. I can’t keep up with you. I found tiny ants in my cereal cupboard yesterday. First time I’ve ever had ants in the cupboard. So I did clean everything out and put all the cereal in Tupperware containers. The ants forced my hand to do something. Lousy ants. ha ha…just kidding.

    • Hi, Julie!! I have my dog dish next to my screen door, and those tiny ants are coming in my house too!! Last year I sprinkled cinnamon around where they were coming in. It stopped them in their tracks and made my kitchen smell great. Just wash the area where they are crawling through with vinegar. They usually follow the same trail. Then sprinkle with cinnamon. If that doesn’t work, try borax. They carry it back to their nest, and it kills them. Hope that helps!!

      Julie, I found one ant on my counter earlier this week, and I killed them and haven’t seen any since. I’m hoping they aren’t hiding out in one of my cupboards! I hate being unorganized, and I wish I was more organized, I keep telling myself that once my kiddos get older, it will get easier. My day is filled with following them around from room to room and cleaning up their messes. I cant wait for them to clean up after themselves (although I am starting to wonder if that is a more of a dream than a reality). Sara always has great advice on what to do about pests, thanks for the ant remedy Sara.
