Tackle it tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I hate to clean...I love a clean house but I hate the cleaning. Routine cleaning, the vacuuming, the dusting, the picking up of everything all the time, I hate it because it doesn't stay done, and it seems almost pointless, and I think well what the heck did I just do it for when my family can undo it faster than I can do it??? I do it because it has to get done, I can't have a dirty house and I can't afford a maid therefore I must clean it. I hate every minute of it knowing I'm wasting my time doing something that won't stay done.

However, organizing and the spring cleaning type of cleaning I love...I think because when you get done it stays done at least for a little while anyway. It's not undone by the end of the day at least! It also makes life better! When I organize a closet my life is better for it. Things are organized and neat, it feels good, it looks good and makes getting dressed easier, the mornings go by faster... life is easier...the same can not be said for dusting the bookshelf!

So Tackle it Tuesday is going to be so much fun for me!!! I have an excuse to skip cleaning the toilets today, and do some cleaning I love and that will make a difference in my life for more than a day!!!

Today's tackle wasn't the most exciting or original tackle...but it was still a tackle and I enjoyed every minute of it!!! What did I tackle??? My fridge! LOL...It's been needing a good tackle since Thanksgiving really, I just haven't had the time. When I was a stay at home mom I wouldn't put away the new groceries unless I had cleaned out the fridge first...now that I work I grocery shop at night after I get off work, and don't have the energy to tackle cleaning the fridge at 1:30in the morning! So tackling the fridge, doesn't get done nearly as often as it should anymore. But I tackled it today, and I'm very happy to have it done and enjoyed every minute of it!

Here's Before of the fridge and freezer:

Well you're doing a darned sight better than I am dearie. I made the mistake of ordering food on line from Safeway [had a free delivery coupon] but the fridge was so stuffed I just didn't know what to do with all.....except have a very big dinner indeed.
