Clean Life Challenge: Week 1

I just recently joined a Facebook to challenge to declutter our homes. While my house is pretty organized, I have noticed that I have several spots in my house that could really use an overhaul. Each week we are faced with a challenge and we need to tackle it.

This is our 1st challenge. Since the tops of my dressers are all very clean, I decided that I was going to tackle my spice/miscellaneous cabinet. It is a mess. Each time I attempt to take something out, something always seems to fall on top of me. Last night I was looking for a white cupcake liner for a craft I was doing and 4 bottles of extract came tumbling down on me....all hitting me in the head. OUCH!
Closets and my kitchen are the worst. So, this challenge will be great for me and my family!

Before Spice /Miscellaneous Cabinet!
I actually bought more Valentine's cupcake liners, because I couldn't find any in the mess. During Christmas I bought more Almond extract because the one I had was somewhere in this forgotten realm.
So I decided to take one afternoon and take everything out and start over. I found a few collapsible drawers from the Dollar tree and began my challenge. Here is in the final product.

It felt so good to clean up this cabinet. Cooking last night was actually fun, because I wasn't irritated looking for my spices! Can't wait to see what the next challenge is...stay tuned!
