I have several things on my mind that I want to accomplish over my winter break. Mostly, I want to remove clutter from the house. We have too much stuff. Last week, I removed half of my kitchen gadgets from my drawers and counter tops, put them all in a box, and put the box in the basement. I figure if I can live a month without needing them, then into the garage sale pile they go!
Next thing thing was to move the microwave. It is a big black ugly thing that sits on top of the fridge. We have all white appliances by the way... That and I had a really REALLY hard time using it because I am short, and it was up high, and I spilled soup on WAY too many occasions.
I wanted the microwave to go into my pantry, but uh, there are no plugs in there. However, the pantry is ion a wall that is the storage room, and there so happens to be a plug in exactly the right spot SO I busted out my drill, the 1 inch drill bit, and went to town. My holes were a little off in alignment, but I made it work. The storage room has a little hole now with a cord going through it, but whatever. That room is NOT for show. This is how it came out!
|Clean and clutter free! That makes a happy me!|
Yes, the pantry is still really clogged up and crowded, especially now that I lost a whole shelf to the microwave, but I am STILL on a mission to clean it out by eating what we have. It's all good though, because now I can reach the darn thing, AND keep it clean :)
By the way, How is everyone Clean Out The Pantry Challenge going??
