Organization Update: Organizing Frenzy!

I just got finished tell you all about my plan to find more balance in my cleaning/organizing this month, and then I went and spent my whole day yesterday having an organizing frenzy until my back was so stiff I could hardly move.  One of these days I'm going to listen to myself!

But yesterday seemed a perfect day for cleaning/organizing.  We didn't have church (roads were blocked off for a marathon), it was cold and rainy out, and my husband had the whole day off!  My kids even helped and got along!  (Lately, that's an accomplishment in itself!)

So, what did I do yesterday?  I wrote expiration dates on every food item in my pantry and on my garage shelves.  Then I moved all the boxed items inside and all the canned items outside.  This is because we had seen a mouse in the garage and were afraid it might chew through the boxes.  We haven't seen it since I locked the cats out there for a bit, but its a good precautionary measure.

This is what my pantry looks like now.

My husband arranged the canned goods on my garage shelves.  Notice I've also moved some small appliances out there.

Right now I'm attempting to come up with a meal plan for the week.  I want to go through my freezers today and see what I have in them that needs to be used up first.  I'll be posting my menu plan a bit later.

I'll be spending the evening having leftovers (made a roast in the crockpot yesterday) and decorating the Christmas tree with my husband and daughters.  They are so excited!
