De-cluttering

I finally had enough energy today to get a few things done that I had on my mental list this fall. I got out and cleaned up and re-organized my summer kitchen more so now there is plenty of room on the counter for cutting up deer meat when we skin deer. Then I came in to start supper and decided to organize the pantry. I have tossed and cleaned the pantry in the kitchen and then started on the refrigerators. I got both of those cleaned out and things tossed that have been in there open for who knows how long. This has been an all day project. I also rearranged the closet in the utility room and the linen closet in the hall way. Tomorrow this will continue. I still have the bedroom closets to go and all the drawers in the kitchen. I have already taken out 3 bags of trash. Goodness where does it come from. The one place I really hate to get started on is my outbuilding. It is a mess. You can hardly walk in there. Over the summer things just get "set" in there till they can be put where they really go. Well its fall and they are still there. Maybe after I get done it will at least last till spring. One can only hope. After all I can see my kitchen counter tops now. If I can get one place organized it does motivate me to keep going. When the house is organized it is much easier to clean and keep clean. Wonder if I can get the freezers organized so I don't have to take every thing out to find dinner. Hmmm........
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

I organized my junk drawer awhile back. I had over a 100 batteries in different sizes buried in there. I'm getting ready to do my clothes swap too. Out with the shorts and in with the sweats.

I decluttered one or two weekends ago and it looks much better though I'm no where near done. Some stuff I find I don't even remember buying. I love my reading material and have a habit of collecting magazines with good articles. Most of the mags are homesteading/gardening kinda stuff..and lets not even talk about puzzle books. Me thinks me got one too many. ~ 'Jenny'
