Tackle It Tuesday - Kitchen Cabinets

It’s Tackle It Tuesday again. I had planned to tackle the family room this week but our garage sale had to be postponed due to the weather. So, I tackled cabinets and closets. Our snack cabinet and can goods cabinet have been out of control. We’ve done a lot of coming and going the past couple of weeks. The kids would help me throw the groceries in the cabinet and/or grab a snack, shove the box up in the cabinet and make a run for the door. It was time for them to be tackled…no not the kids, the cabinets.

Here’s the snack before…

…and after.

The can goods before…

…and after.

Believe it or not, I only had 4 expired items. It was salad dressings. We haven’t been eating as many salads as normal so the bottles went to waste.

I also tackled both of the kids’ closets and the toy cabinet this week. I have three closets, the family room, and the kitchen left that haven’t been tackled in a while. The family room and kitchen are major tackles…they need painted and everything. Other than that, I’ll be tackling whatever else comes up.

I do have a question too. What are some improvements that can be made in a kitchen without putting out lots of money? We haven't done much to the kitchen since we moved in 6 years ago except add a few additional cabinets, put in a new floor, and replace the stove. We plan on painting the old ones and painting the walls.

Great Organizing...looks good!! I love organizing my kitchen cabinets..then I can actully see what's in them...LOL

Best tip for an updated kitchen look....new countertops!! Makes a kitchen look nice and clean, and new looking for a very reasonable price!!
