One down, 300 million to go.....

That'd be cabinets, people.  Cabinets.  I'm so blessed to have TONS of cabinets in my home, but keeping those cabinets clean, neat, and organized 365 days a year is another story.

One of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house happens to be a hutch that we received as a wedding gift.  I keep this piece in our formal dining room because it fits perfectly on the wall in that room.

I had "extra" time (ha-ha) Monday since I didn't have to work and decided to clean out and organize the cabinet.

First, I took everything out of the cabinet and dusted the inside of it and the shelves.

Then, I took stock of what I had, what I needed/could get rid of (yard sale), and what needed to be trashed.  I'm moving toward living a little more "simple" and knew I wanted/needed to get rid of some things.

After I went through all the items, I put everything back in the hutch based on its season (Christmas, Fall, Easter, etc.).

The result?  A perfectly organized hutch.

And a great feeling of satisfaction (not to mention something crossed off my to do list).


  1. Good job, Type A!! Isn't that what you called yourself?

    I love the organization as you may remember.

    1. The cleaning bug must have been in the air on Monday. I cleaned out our hideous laundry room! It was so bad I was scared I would find "pets".


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
