The Hidden Places

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

There is something so inspiring about taking before and after pictures of any project, even cleaning house! It almost makes (and I said almost) me want to clean! I have been trying to overcome my perfectionism in keeping house and am learning that 5 minutes here and there can add up to a BIG difference and make me feel a whole lot better. Over the best couple weeks I have been tackling the hidden places in our house, under the sinks, the linen closet, the bathroom drawers etc. I took some before and after pictures to share with my first Tackle It Tuesday posting. Most of these projects took 10 minutes or less to complete and I am SO happy when I get something out of one of these places, instead of walking away frustrated and in shame! :-)

Under the girls' bathroom sink - before

After - complete with a "guest basket" a towel, shampoo, an extra tooth brush, soap, etc. Always wanted one of those!

Nice work, girl! I love, love the guest basket you have created...how creative! You know me, I'm always a sucker for before and after pictures and these are some great ones to share. I like that you tackled the hidden places! Even when others won't see it, we still do! It's the little things that make us feel good, right?

So good to see you here in blogging land...I've missed you!

Great organizing! I need to tackle my linen closet pretty soon too.
